Aero wheels no longer need you to have a long conversation with your bank manager. Our new Alpha 55 wheels might be the point at where you can afford high-quality deep-section carbon fiber wheels. One ride of these wheels and you will never want to go back to standard box-section wheels.
Our Alpha 55 rims are constructed using a mix of Toray T700 and T800 carbon fiber. We based our Alpha rim off our previous Fast and Light rim, which was constructed solely of T700 carbon fiber. People loved our FL series for being stiff and strong. We had to make sure we carried over those qualities onto our tubeless-ready Alpha series.
As our shape is proving to be super-fast on the road, especially with our 55mm deep rim, we have worked on our brake track design to make sure you can slow down safely. We raised our brake track’s heat tolerance from 240° to 300°.

To get you rolling up to speed, we have fitted Novatec F428SB-SL and A291SB-SL hubs. These hubs are sealed bearing and high precision. As anyone who has run Novatec hubs can tell you these hubs are also highly reliable.
To lace the Novatec hubs to your Alpha 55 rim, we have used aero Pillar spokes. Pillar spokes are of great value and allow us to supply you with a strong spoke on an affordable set of wheels.
We finished our Alpha 55 package off by bringing you the wheels with a two-year warranty. Not only do you get speed and reliability but you also get peace of mind.

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.

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

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.
