Fast Forward F9T track wheels review

Fast Forward hoops are a popular choice on the track, we put a pair of F9Ts though their paces, indoors and out...

Cycling Weekly Verdict

A strong and stiff wheel which felt fast when put to the test both indoors and out. A degree of solidness means this is a wheel for racing, less suited to long training sessions - and a 90mm rim is rarely the selection we'd recommend for windy days outdoors.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Stiff but robust

  • +

    Look great

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Avoid use on windy outdoor velodromes

As is oft the case, it was a picture (below) that made me realise. It was of myself at the Good Friday track meet, at the front of the bunch (no, I did not stay there longer than absolutely necessary) - and I was the only rider with box section rims. Quelle horreur! It was several nights before I slept properly at the thought of all those lost watts.

Fast Forward's wheels are one of the most popular track choices on the market. Indeed, they're the unanimous brand of choice in the afore mentioned image.
