One of the biggest bars to getting into triathlons and time trials is cost. That is why we created our Alpha 86 carbon fiber wheelset. These wheels will give both a standard road bike and a time trial/triathlon machine a considerable speed boost. They will help you slice through the air with ease. Even better is they will not take a huge slice out of your wallet.

To bring you an 86mm deep section aero wheel we have turned to Toray to use a mix of their carbon fibers. We use their T700 and T800 carbon fiber cloth. We use this mix as we have found it allows us to build you a stiff and strong set of wheels, that we can sculpt into a modern wide and blunt aero shape.

As well as doing this it allows us to keep the weight down. Because even if you are only after aero gains having a lighter set of wheels helps to make you feel better. To keep the wheelset comfortable, not something that is often said about 86mm deep rims, we have made sure that the rim is also tubeless-ready.

As you will be flying along the road, we have also upgraded the brake track. Our new brake track can withstand temperatures of up to 300° from our old base of 240°.

We have gone with Novatec F428SB-SL, and A291SB-SL sealed bearing hubs, and aero Pillar spokes to help keep the wheelset affordable. Both Pillar and Novatec, like ourselves, bring you high quality at a highly affordable price.

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.
