FFWD has added deeper clinchers to join the F4, bringing F6 and F9 full carbon road wheels to the mix.
Previously, the F6 was available as tubulars and carbon alloy clinchers, and the F9 was tubular only. Compared to the alloy brake track, which will remain in the line, the F6 saved around 200g with the full carbon version. Both use the same aero DARC profile rim shape as the tubulars. All of the carbon clinchers are 22.4mm wide outside. All of the wheels are built on DT Swiss hubs.
That and the F4R Silver is a special edition tubular that gets a custom DT Swiss 180 hubset with carbon fiber shell.
It’ll weigh in at just 1,145g and retail for €2,498. Not shown, there’s also a F4R Matte Black option.
They’ve also expanded the disc brake options. The F6 had a disc brake option, but the deeper 60mm times weren’t as popular with disc brakes. So, the F4 (45mm) is now available with disc brake hubs on a full carbon clincher and tubular.
