2019 is the year that road bike aero really took off. Yes, Cervelo claimed the first aero road bike in 2003 with the Soloist and yes many manufacturers have followed suit. But for 2019 every manufacturer has jumped on the aero bandwagon or gone full aero for their high-end bikes. We haven’t jumped on the aero bandwagon, and we have been working through our aero designs and very shortly the pinnacle of our aero designs will be released, the ICAN A9.
Spokes, they are the least glamorous part of a wheelset, no one ever talks about their spokes. They are pretty integral to the quality of your wheels though. A lower quality set of spokes can ruin a quality rim and hub combo. That is why we at ICAN take a lot of care on deciding how to spoke our wheels.
