FFWD Falcon Tubular Front Disc Brake
|Options||Disc Brake Out of Stock|
The Falcon project started by taking an existing idea of the fastest wheel and take this to the next level. Based on only two carbon spokes with NACA profile and a variable rim height between 48mm and 90mm, all aspects are designed to reduce the drag behind the wheel. From the first tests this wheel showed remarkable improvements compared to the more traditional time trial wheels out there. By using Toray 800 and 1000 UD carbon fibers the stiffness and strength of this wheel are ensured. The materials and shape combined make it a perfect balanced wheel.
The Falcon has been developed on rim width to make the wheel more aerodynamic in combination with wider tyres and compatible for the tubeless setup. It is available as road wheels for time trial and triathlon use in tubular and full carbon clincher with rim brake and disc brake options. Besides that the Falcon will also be available as track wheel where the tests proved a Falcon with rear DISC is more aerodynamic than other combinations.
