Fast Forward F9R Wheels

Fast Forward F9R Wheels

If pure speed is what you need then the full aero design of the Fast Forward F9R will go a long way towards fulfilling that performance requirement as it has a 90mm rim depth, giving the ability to slice through the air with minimal resistance.

As with the rest of the range the FFWD F9R is available with the standard, or with the 240S or 190 ceramic DT hubs, with the latter using DT Aerolite spokes, in a pattern of 20 for the front wheel and 24 for the rear, to give increased response and strength.

In addition, the latest technology is incorporated in the form of DARC profiling of the rims, designed to aid the Aero performance, which you can read about in more detail in our general FFWD section.

These wheels are already in use with the Quickstep ProTour team for time trials and stage races.

One more aspect which will attract potential buyers of the Fast Forward F9R wheels is the attractive carbon weave, decals and gloss lacquer coat; they also come with their own wheel bag, skewers, and carbon specific brake pads.
