Fast Forward F4R Wheels

Fast Forward F4R Wheels

If you need a wheel that is fast in most conditions and also capable of rapid climbing, then the Fast Forward F4R wheel is well worth considering, although like the other hand made FFWD wheels its price puts it firmly in the top performance wheels.

This wheel has a 38 mm tubular carbon rim and is available with the standard FFWD hub, or the DT 240s or 190 ceramic versions, with the DT versions are also using their Aerolite spokes.

The F4R is a multipurpose wheel which is not badly affected by windy conditions and has excellent lateral stiffness with very smooth rotation when using the 190 hub.

The Fast Forward F4R wheels come complete with carrying bag with internal pockets.
