FFWD Wheels Now Available

   Words by Tom Worsfold

FFWD have been building performance wheelsets since 2006, specializing in high-performance products designed to give you the edge when it comes to racing. Hand-built in the Netherlands, FFWD have grown their reputation as one of the world’s top wheel manufacturers, creating uber lightweight products that are designed to stay true go the distance.



FFWD are renowned for the quality of their hand-built wheels, each of which is assembled in their HQ, in the Dutch town of Zwolle. With incredible attention to detail every wheel leaves the factory ready to race, with perfect tension and pre-stretched spokes which can run for years without needing to be trued. FFWD wheels balance stiffness and compliancy to offer a responsive but comfortable ride that is unlike anything you have felt before.


FFWD Technology

FFWD wheels use different types of carbon to give perfect weight and aerodynamics, with a 3k carbon outer and a unidirectional layer underneath. The 3k weave gives impact protection where it is needed, with the unidirectional carbon being used for stiffness – this gives FFWD wheels an optimal strength to weight ratio for peak performance from every set. Equal compression moulding is used to fuse the carbon sheets into a void-less rim section, that is in turn stronger and helps prevent spoke/nipple failures.


DT-Swiss hubs are the benchmark when it comes to quality and are found on every set of FFWD wheels. Braking performance is improved on their rim-brake models up to 30% through use of Confidence Brake Technology (CBT), with three different brake track layers being used depending on rim type and use. Overall, high performance features for high performance riders!
