Wheel Review: Fast Forward F4R FCC

Dutch brand Fast Forward, founded in 2006 by Henk Schipper (formerly of SRAM), is a company whose wheelsets have recently become a popular choice among pro peloton riders for their durability and aerodynamics. In fact, one pro team claimed to have put more than 80,000 miles on their Fast Forward wheels without so much as a broken spoke—a rumor (printed in Peloton Magazine) so impressive we decided to take a look for ourselves.

With the new F4R FCC (full carbon clincher) ready to roll on one of our test rigs, we tested it on every type of terrain to see just how well these wheels hold up to the hype.
