How do you improve the already successful Fast and Light Series wheelset? You make it lighter. The year 2018 was an excellent year for the Fast and Light Series Wheelset. It became ICAN’s best-selling product. 2019 is going to be a better year as we unveil the ICAN Aero Series Wheelset. The Aero Series wheelset has inherited all the awesome features that contributed to the success of the Fast and Light Series but in lighter packages. Think of the AERO as a super-light wheelset.
The Rim The Aero Series Wheelset rims materialize from a combination of Toray T700 and T800 carbon fiber cloths. A marriage of these carbon cloths produces a lighter end product in comparison to a rim made only from Toray T700 carbon fiber cloth. The Aero Series Wheelset is 25mm wide, slightly wider than our standard ICAN wheelset. Wide wheels offer less rolling resistance and superior stability. The depth of AERO series comes in five options; 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 55mm, and 86mm. All wheelsets in the series are tubeless ready and finished in a 2-way clincher profile. ICAN upgraded the brake track to a 3K Carbon Braking Track which offers more brake heat resistance.
Hubs and Spokes Super-light wheels need super-light hubs. R01 hubs replace Novatec hubs. On the front wheel, the R01 hub is secured by 18 aerodynamically sound Sapim CX-Ray spokes. On the other hand, the 10/11-Speed Shimano compatible R01 hubs are matted to the rear rim by 24 super-light Sapim CX-Ray spokes.
All wheelsets in the Aero Series are Certified and approved by the Union Cyscliste Internationale (UCI) for use in UCI suctioned road races.
