When going for the best it’s evident to bring all the best parts together in order to achieve the optimum result. Starting with FFWD’s core ingredient of good wheels, they completely redesigned the rim from scratch. In a changing world of wider tyres and rim profiles, the aerodynamic performance is also due to change.
With this knowledge, the updated FFWD rim profile LAW Tech has been developed as the basis of the FFWD RAW. LAW is short for ‘Laminar Airflow Wing’ and has been specially developed to deliver better aerodynamics when using wider tyres by creating a smooth airflow. Testing multiple layups and setups have led to the optimum combination of stiffness, aero and weight which you would expect in a set like this.
However aero is important, it is the combination of multiple factors that make a top model earn its stars. The RAW stands out from the others by the use of internal nipples and the DT Swiss 180 EXP hubs with SINC ceramic bearings. These reduce rolling resistance to the absolute minimum and increase durability. The use of only the best high-end parts contributes to the low weight of this set, putting only 1420 grams on the scale.
When you have the best of the best you want them to shine as well. The RAW is the only model with an in-moulded FFWD logo in the carbon rim and has a special design with sparkling metallic decals.
