Since 2006 FFWD has been focused on carbon only, period. 2014 marks the release of the first all aluminum wheelset, the F2A, to broaden our already robust product range. The F2A establishes a new quality standard for aluminum wheels by featuring 24mm deep rims, DT Swiss components including 240s hubs, Aerolite/Comp spokes and Pro Lock brass nipples.
The asymetric 24 spoke rear wheel is laced in a two cross pattern utilizing DT Comp spokes on the DS (drive side) and DT Aerolite spokes on the NDS (non-drive side) to increase stiffness but maximize comfort.
As with all FFWD wheelsets, the F2A is hand built at our production facilities in the Netherlands and a set weighs in at just 1470 grams.
The F2A is an ideal choice for riders seeking a more affordable wheelset that can be used in all conditions. The F2A will be available in March 2014. Learn more here.
