Yes, the wheels can take 30mm tires.
We know sponsored CX teams use tires up to 32mm on our wheels.

On a 10 speed freewheel you can fit a 9 speed cassette. If the freewheel is 11 speed compatible you will receive a spacer to make it 10 speed (and also 9sp) compatible!

This is the most chosen wheelset for the competitive rider. Because of it's strength, looks & acceleration & the fact it features 60mm deep section DARC profile rims, the F6R's, with DT Swiss hubs, delivers what you want - speed & performance.
 

What warranty comes with these wheels? And do they use standard brake pads?

Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
FFWD Wheels have a standard warranty of 2 years. Outside the warranty on production mistakes we offer a Crash Replacement Policy which allows you to purchase a new rim at half price in case of crash.

For alloy brake surfaces the standard pads can be used.

The F4R Alloy/Carbon Clincher wheelset is the most all-round wheelset for the tourist or competitive racer looking for clincher wheels. With 45mm deep carbon rims built on DT Swiss 240s hubs make the the F4R is easy to handle.
 

Please confirm this is the carbon alloy clincher and not carbon clincher model

What I want to know for sure is that these are carbon alloy clincher wheels that come with alloy welded braking surface.

With proven DARC aerodynamics and an extremely lightweight rim are combined in the new F4R, making it the best choice for an all-round wheel set. Now with new high quality FFWD/DT Swiss designed hubs give a strong and durable hub with Swiss precision.
 

What is the difference between CX-Ray and DT aerolite spokes please

Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
There is no difference between both spokes. From our experience we know that both spokes are equal in performance and of the same high quality.

The F6R rear wheel features DT Swiss 240s hubs for optimal rolling performance and are built on a pair of 60mm carbon DARC profile rims. This is the most chosen wheel for the competitive rider because of it's quick acceleration & strength.
 

Which Wheel is compatable with sram 10 speed, there appears to be 2 options?

Any Shimano wheel is also SRAM 10sp compatible. If the wheel is suitable for 11sp it will come with a 10sp spacer to put behind the cassette.

Full carbon tubular wheelset with 90mm deep rims with DARC profile and DT Swiss 240s hubs. Great wheels for TT's or Triathlon events where full aerodynamics are key to save you seconds against the clock.
 

Extras?

Do the wheels come shipped with brake pads, bag, valve extensions or any such extras? I.e. what's included "in the box"?

All FFWD wheels come in a wheel bag which has a special compartment for the accessories like quick release set, brake pads or rim tape and valve extensions.

Hi. Is the weight differences in the F4R range related to different hub wts? ie are the rims and spokes all identical?

Some FR4 are described as shallow and some as mid depth rims. As far as I can see they are all 38mm. Is that correct? Thanks.
Top 100 Contributor

The main difference between sets is in the weight of the hub. However as rims are hand built there is always a small difference possible.

Previously the F4R rims were 38mm high, from 2013 onwards these have been upgraded to a 45mm height and new spec.
