FFWD's first ever dedicated wheel set for gravel bikes
These full carbon wheels are developed to take you further and anywhere you want. With a road wheel line up which is also suitable for light gravel use we saw the trend and growing demand for this category. We therefore started a development process to create a unique and dedicated gravel wheel set. With durability being the key specification in mind we carefully designed the rim and put it together with only the best components.
Durability and agility to provide you the most fun gravel rides
While weight is normally one of the most interesting specifications to check we take a different approach when it comes to producing the best wheels. In our choices weight is important but should not compromise other areas such as durability and agility.
For the DRIFT it was even more important as they need to last and cope with whatever comes on your gravel paths. You will find this in the DT Swiss Aerocomp spokes and brass nipples for example which - when put together with the new DT240 EXP hubs - make a killer set. The thicker spokes offer more rigidity and durability and can take some hits.
Agility is brought together by the rims height of 36mm combined with the Aerocomp spokes. These ingredients bring you stiffness and more power transmission when you put the wheels in motion. All your energy will result in more and easy miles off-road and thus more time to enjoy your ride!
Hookless design for tubeless
The newly designed hookless rim features an internal width of 24mm only to be used with tubeless tires. A special carbon layup is chosen to deal with higher impacts when riding on low tire pressure on more heavy gravel roads.
It offers the possibility for a broad range of tire options from 30mm up to 60mm and with that no excuse for the terrain you will attack.
The set puts merely 1515 grams on the scale and will come as complete package with tubeless tape and valves packed nicely in a protective FFWD wheel bag.
DRIFT is the first dedicated gravel wheel that marks the start of this category for FFWD!

Nice Gravel Wheels
Picked up a set of FastForward wheels -- carbon rooms, DT240 hubs. Very nice. Very true, seem very sturdy. Excited to get them out on gravel as soon as my frame gets finished! Tire mounting was (surprisingly) not difficult, and the valve install was easy as well. The case that comes with them is really nice; great for storing them and for travel.
