Light, durable, reliable; there are not enough words to describe the AERO Series. Introducing the 55mm member of the AERO Series; the Aero 55, a 55mm deep Wheelset by ICAN. Suitable for carbon racing bikes, the Aero 55 rim materializes from 100% carbon fiber (a combination of Toray T700 and T800 carbon cloths). The rim of this 700C wheelset features 18 holes (two less than the number of spoke holes on its equivalent in the Fast and Light series) on the front wheel, and 24 spoke holes on the rear wheel.
The Aero 55 rim also features a 25mm external width which enables the wheel to provide more stability in comparison to Standard ICAN Wheelset equivalents.
The rim design features a UD Matt finish and a 2-way Clincher Tubeless Ready profile. The ICAN clincher design is famed for easier tire installation. Tubeless tires offer immunity to punctures and superior rolling resistance. On the side of the rim is a 3K Carbon Braking Track which offers higher brake heat resistance than 55mm equivalents in the Fast and Light Series.

Each wheel comes already fitted with an R01 hub. The rear hub is compatible with 10 and 11 speed Shimano Cassettes. The front hub connects to the rim through 18 aerodynamically sound CX-Ray spokes arranged radially. The rear hub is secured by 24 CX-Ray spokes arranged in a radial drive side and 2-cross non-drive side fashions.
Included in each purchase is a free set of skewers and carbon brake pads.

Features

Wide Rim Tech

25mm rim wide creates a better, more stable support, while the shape of the tire and rim together creates regular, stable air flow, in short, more aerodynamics, less attrition. provides an ideal basis for 25/28mm tires, the sizes currently popular.

2-Way Clincher Tubeless. Tubes or No-Tubes

Use either traditional tires with tubes, or tubeless tires without tubes. Tubeless tires can provide lower rolling resistance and better protection from punctures.

Sapim CX-RAY As light as a titanium spoke

The CX-Ray still receives the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke. The CX-Ray aero spoke combines excellent aerodynamics with low weight and great strength. Not only are they more aerodynamic, they also make wheels lighter and stronger. Its unique strength and flexibility make the CX-Ray suitable for most bicycle disciplines. CX-Ray spokes are used by top bike racers and triathletes around the world.

Sapim Secure Lock Nipples

Sapim Secure Lock nipple is a locking mechanism that prevents nipples from untightening.Secure Lock nipple can achieve a stable and well defi ned deformation on the thread. Each nipple has an additional locking resistance of 18 +/- 3 cNm.

UCI Approved

This wheelset has been certified and approved by the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale), for use in UCI sanctioned road races.

What is difference between Aero or Aero special?

Let us take Aero 40 and Aero 40S as an example, have a look for their difference.

Hub:

  • AERO 40S: Novatec Hub
  • AERO 40: R01 Hubs

Different hub structures determine the number of spokes and the spokes pattern.Both hubs have been extensively verified and performed well.

Spokes:
Both versions of the wheels use Sapim CX-Ray spokes, but the number of spokes on the front wheels is different

The two series of wheels have the same number of rear wheels spokes.The number of spokes on the front wheel is different, which is a factor that affects the weight.

  • AERO 40S Front Spokes: 20
  • AERO 40 Front Spokes : 18

Weight:

  • AERO 40S: Total: 1360+-20g
  • AERO 40: Total: 1314+-20g

Which is better? AERO special Or AERO

Their performance is almost the same.Aero special series wheels have more spokes on the front wheels, so their load-bearing capacity is better than that of aero series wheels.

IS ICAN WHEELS AND FRAME GOOD?

YES! Many customers have purchased wheels and frames of ICAN Cycling, and they give us many good feeback.All products undergo strict quality control and provide two years warranty.

What is the best tire size for my ICAN wheels?

The best tire size for your wheel, which depends on the wheelsets type, size and the conditions you plan to ride the wheel in.
If you focus on speed,aerodynamic, each carbon wheel will have a specific recomended tire width, which is listed on specific product pages under rim specs.

We find(Not necessarily 100% correct):

  • With a broader external width, ICAN Cycling wheels roll most optimally with a 25mm/28mm (actual width) tire.
  • For Jet wheels, we recommend 25mm (actual width) tires, but 28mm (actual width) tires are still an excellent choice.
  • Unless a podium step hangs in the balance, the difference in the speed of the Jet, using a 25mm tire versus a 28mm tire, works out to only 0.05 kph. That’s approximately 3 – 4 seconds over 40km.

What is the recommended tire pressure

If you want the right tire pressure,please read the guide for recommended tire pressure.

WHY THE SAME PRODUCT HAS DIFFERENT PRICES
The prices of the same products in different warehouses are different. We have prepaid taxes and freight for users who purchase products in overseas warehouses.

WHY THE WHEELSETS ARE TOO STIFF FOR HARDTAIL
The reason may be that the spokes tension of wheels is too high. Please check that the spokes tension to make it at a the proper range.

Why do i feel the freehub is a bit tight when backpedal

When riding for the first time, freehub needs to run in with the wheels. Just ride for a while, freehub will run well.

CAN ICAN WHEELS BE SET UP TUBELESS?

For ICAN’s current line up of wheels, most of wheels is tubeless compatible.
