Cycling is growing, and nothing is growing faster than the gravel segment. This is because gravel is all about bikes being built and ridden in a way that is driven by consumers and not by professional riders. Our AC388 is inspired by what you would want to ride and how you ride.
One crucial part for gravel bikes is their brakes. Gravel involves riding offroad and riding offroad makes riding hazards a little less predictable, and you will need to stop quickly in what could be adverse weather conditions or fully leaden if you are bikepacking. We, therefore, specced this frameset to run flat mount disc brake.
Disc brakes mean you can stop fast and safe, but you also need your frame and fork to be stiffer for this to happen. This is why we have ditched quick release and gone with 12mm thru axle wheel fitment. We have also worked the Toray T700 fibers into a very stiff but compliant frameset, this is boosted by our BB86 bottom bracket. The stiffness will help you get up to speed as much as it will allow you to slow down with the disc brakes.
Not only did our engineers work hard on the carbon layup but they have also been working hard to make sure our internal routing works well, especially if you are using hydraulic brake hoses rather than cables. This will help to make sure your gear changes and braking stays crisp when you are out backpacking or if you fancy to race cyclocross.

1. How to track my order online?
Once your order has shipped, a Shipping Confirmation email is sent to you with the tracking website and the tracking number. You can use this tracking number to track your order via the carrier's tracking site.
2. What is the processing time and delivery time for my order?
We will ship out the item within 36 hr with careful package after the processing time .and it takes about 3-10 days if the stock running out. The delivery time will epends on the courier method.
Noted：Due to the impact of the epidemic, the arrival time of the goods may be extended, and the specific details can be communicated at any time.
3. How will you package my goods ? Is it safe for them to reach me?
We use new packing box which is much more stiff and secured. It will protect the carbon products from the possible violently throwing and pressure during the shipping progress.
4.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 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.
