This high-quality wheelset is Fast Forward's first-ever dedicated model for gravel bike riding and offers durable, agile and lightweight performance as you conquer every adventure. It features a full carbon rim construction, which gives it exceptional stiffness and versatility without adding any unnecessary grams to your ride. Fast Forward has also equipped it with Centrelock disc brake compatibility, so riders can enjoy powerful and consistent braking operation wherever their ride takes them. Another highlight is its tubeless-ready technology, which means that you'll benefit from lower rolling resistance, increased comfort and stability, as well as fewer chances of flats or punctures.
While weight is normally one of the most interesting specifications to check, Fast Forward takes a different approach when it comes to producing top-quality wheels. In the brand's 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 updated DT240 EXP hubs - make a fantastic set. The thicker spokes also offer more rigidity and durability and can take some hits.
Agility is brought together by the rim's 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!
This wheelset's hookless rim design features an internal width of 24mm only to be used with tubeless tyres. A special carbon layup is chosen to deal with higher impacts when riding on low tyre pressure on more heavy gravel roads. It offers the possibility for a broad range of tyre 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 comes as a complete package with tubeless tape and valves packed nicely in a protective FFWD wheel bag. Drift is the first dedicated gravel wheelset that marks the start of this category for Fast Forward.
