FFWD Launches the Fastest Wheel in History – The Falcon

At Eurobike 2018 FFWD Wheels presented Project Falcon in cooperation with M5. We are now pleased to announce the launch of the fastest bicycle wheel in history. THE WHEEL The Falcon wheel features a revolutionary design employing only two NACA profile shaped spokes in the center of the wheel and a rim profile with a variable depth arc from 48mm to 90mm. This unique design results in the least amount of aerodynamic resistance which significantly reduces drag and increases watt savings. In wind conditions most frequently encountered on the road in the real world (0-10 degrees), the Falcon outperforms competitive front wheels by a savings up to 9 watts.
