The customer is entitled to cancel the order as soon as the prices increase in the period between the placement of the order and the delivery.
In case FFWD does not receive the payment within 10 working days after order placement date, it will be entitled to breach the contract and thereby cancel the order.
CHECKING THE RECEIVED ORDER
The customer has fourteen (14) days to return all or part of his order for exchange or refund. To do this, the unused products should be correctly protected in their original packaging and be accompanied by their invoice. Also an email will be send to FFWD (email@example.com) to inform that the product will be returned.
The exchange or refund will be taken into account when the return package has been received and inspected by FFWD and only for the product at its original price excluding delivery costs from the moment when the product is returned in perfect condition to FFWD with delivery costs paid.
100 DAYS FREE TRIAL
For all wheel sets [ONLY WHEELS] bought directly from the FFWD Wheels shop we offer a 100 days free trial and return policy with full refund as an extra service. This applies only to wheels and means they are free to use during this period. This service does not apply when wheels are broken or damaged during these 100 days trial period. For all other products outside wheels the 14 days right to cancel applies, see below section under 'Right to Cancel'.
MAIN WARRANTY POLICY
FFWD warrants its products to be free from manufacturing defects for a period of two years after original date of purchase. This warranty only applies to the original owner and is not transferable. The seller is obliged to guarantee the item sold against latent defects which render it unsuitable for its intended usage, or reduce this usage to such an extent that the buyer would not have purchased the item, or that he would have purchased it only at a lower price if he had known the latent defects existed.
An additional year of warranty (three year total) is rewarded to all FFWD riders who register their wheels after purchase on our website and become part of TeamFFWD. The registration also enables the use of our Crash Replacement Policy and also helps to deal with service requests much faster.
The FFWD warranty covers exclusively the manufacturing defects of its products and excludes, notably, from its scope of application any damage, prejudice and, more generally, any direct or indirect consequence which would result from bad use or failure to respect user instructions, the lack of maintenance or a non-conforming use of the product.
The FFWD warranty does not cover parts that are subject to normal wear and tear. Wear and tear parts are subject to damage as a result of normal use and riding in conditions / usage for applications other than recommended.
Wear and tear parts are identified as:
- brake pads.
- brake surface of tubular and clincher rims.
- ball bearings
IMPORTANT: Always use FFWD carbon brake pads when using FFWD full carbon wheels. Do not forget to change your carbon brake pads when you're going to ride with wheels with a brake surface other than carbon. Debris from the brake surface might get stuck in the carbon brake pads which will result in unrepairable damage to your full carbon rim. Not following this instruction will void warranty.
CRASH REPLACEMENT POLICY
It’s not common but you never know! We offer a unique service for those who crashed their wheels!
In case of bad luck, FFWD supports you by offering replacement rims for a special discounted price. Contact our service department for the possibilities and an actual quote. Use our service repair form here to contact us with all necessary information.
If you have a question or you would like to contact us for something else, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to answer any question or concern you may have.

RETURNING A FFWD WHEEL
Any return to FFWD for examination will be handled by the customer who will ensure that the product’s packaging is appropriate, that the product is insured, if necessary, and that the shipping costs are paid. Don’t forget to include the invoice with the wheel, as well as your name, address and phone number. You can complete our service repair form here to send us all necessary information.
IMPORTANT: If you want to return your wheel to FFWD, please make sure to return it without the tubular or clincher tire, without the sprockets and without the quick release skewer.
