Weight 1590g (pair) Pick up 20° In­ter­nal width 18mm Ex­ter­nal 23mm Depth 31mm Spokes 20/24 Tyre OD 27x25mm The FFWDs de­liver a pro pack­age feel straight away thanks to a qual­ity padded wheel bag. It also con­tains the clas­sy­look­ing skew­ers and valves ready to turn the wheels tube­less, although the baggy tyre fit may need an ex­tra wrap of tape to guar­an­tee in­fla­tion. While the sup­plied star ratchet drive is slow to pick up, the toothed clutch can be up­graded for faster re­ac­tions. They’re slightly heavy to be cat­e­gorised as climb­ing wheels but the ‘Hand­made in Hol­land’ build is taut and torque friendly and the 30mm depth adds aero gains. They come with a two-year war­ranty too.
