CBT: CONFIDENCE BRAKE TECHNOLOGY

At FFWD Wheels we are constantly working on improvement of our products. In this process of product deve- lopment we learned that the combination of compounds will make the difference between good or great. As techniques develop quickly it remains a continuous process at FFWD Wheels!

FFWD Wheels applies three different brake track layers depending on the type of rim or type of use.

CBT BBS
All FFWD tubular (road) rims have a Basalt brake surface (BBS). Reducing heat production and improving brake performance in combination with the supplied SwissStop black prince brake pads.

CBT 1.5
Based on 1.5k CARBON structure in combination with High TG Custom Compound Resin. Increasing braking power by 30% in all conditions, more durable and doesn’t make noise while braking.

CBT 3H
The F3R FCC has an exclusive brake surface. Mixing three different composites and a copper layer with a High TG Resin enables fast heat reduction and high brake efficiency. Durable and capable of higher tire pressure.

FALCON TRACK

FALCON TRACK

FFWD WHEELS PRESENTS ITS’ FALCON PROJECT BEING THE FASTEST WHEEL ON THE TRACK!

 

The Falcon project started by taking an existing idea of the fastest wheel and take this to the next level. Based on only two carbon spokes with NACA profile and a variable rim height between 48mm and 90mm, all aspects are designed to reduce the drag behind the wheel. From the first tests this wheel showed remarkable improvements compared to the more traditional time trial wheels out there. By using Toray 800 and 1000 UD carbon fibers the stiffness and strength of this wheel are ensured. The materials and shape combined make it a perfect balanced wheel and can save you up to 9 watts!

Above pictures are CFD images as result from windtunnel testing. The blue and green lines show the turbulence behind the wheel. As shown in the images the amount of turbulence (drag) is minimalized with the Falcon wheel in comparison to the traditional disc and three spoke wheels.

The Falcon has been developed on rim width to make the wheel more aerodynamic in combination with wider tyres and compatible for the tubeless setup. It is available as road wheels for time trial and triathlon use in tubular and full carbon clincher with rim brake and disc brake options. Besides that the Falcon will also be available as track wheel where the tests proved a Falcon with rear DISC is more aerodynamic than other combinations.
