An all-round wheel set in full carbon for clincher tires. These wheels with 45mm deep rims offer the looks of full carbon wheels but with the benefits of clincher tires.
The wheels are technically able to handle riders over 100kg just like all our models. However not all terrains are suitable for every rider when it comes to Full Carbon Clincher wheels. Depending on the combination of factors like rider weight, terrain and intensity the best suitable wheel set can be chosen.
Like all carbon FFWD wheels, the brake surface of the FCC wheel sets has a special top layer. One of the key features of the special layer is that the braking performance is almost equal to braking on alloy, also in wet conditions!
DT Swiss 240s hubs: These hubs are derived from its MTB version with a closed bearing sealing that offers many kilometres of service free riding.
NOTE: Comes with exclusive wheel bags, quick release set, valve extensions, brake pads & rim tape

Rated 5 out of 5 by CementLegs Lightweight set of aero wheels
Great set of wheels! The weight is not even close in the add, FFWD list them at 1,255 g for the set and mine came in at 1,245 g. Super light wheels that spin up pretty quick. I was not sure how this set would hold up under torque, I am the strongest sprinter out of the groups I ride with and I am happy with the response of these wheels under torque. The 38 mm depth does give a noticeable boost in aero efficiency, not like a proper set of TT wheels, but for something that is still really light for climbers they do quite well. If you are riding in a 25 km/h side wind they start to wander a little bit.
Overall very happy. I picked up my set for around $1,300 Canadian and am now looking for an equally good deal on a set of F6Rs!
