2012 FFWD Disc 10sp to 11sp

Hello,
I own a FFWD disc wheel, 2012 model, with a FFWD Shimano 10sp hub.
Is it possible to make it 11sp compatible, by using this hub?

Please note that the 10 speed FFWD DISC wheels are built differently then a specific 11 speed DISC.
Theoretically the body can be swapped to fit the 11 speed cassette, however on a 10 seed DISC with 11 speed cassette the derailleur will most likely hit the carbon on the lightest gear.

This doesn't occur with a 11 speed DISC which is built differently to run smoothly at any time!

Material

Am I correct in thinking that the braking surface is aluminium and rest is carbon ?

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.
 

Decals

How easily can the decals be removed from these wheels?

The FFWD decals are under a clear coat so not easy to remove!

This cassette body will convert a DT Swiss 240s hub to either Campagnolo or Shimano/Sram.
 

Will this converter a Swiss Dt 240s with ratchet free hub into 11speed

With the Shimano 11sp body you can convert your wheel to 11sp compatible. Please note that with DT hubs you need to check and centre the wheel after changing the body from 10sp to 11sp.

The F4R full carbon clincher wheelset, with the unique matt black/grey decals, is a great all-round wheelset that features key benefits such as 45mm mid profile carbon rims, DT Swiss 240 hubs & the DARC technology that improves efficiency & aerodynamics.
 

I see the rim width is 22.4. What is the widest tyre limit on this wheel please? Thanks

Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
There is no official tire width maximum. It is often limited by the frame spec, usually up to 25mm will fit any frame. Above 25mm, for example 27m or 28mm can be a problem from the frame perspective but on the rims it's not an issue.

follow up on previous question

But the wheels can take e.g. a 30 mm Dugast tyre?

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!

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.
