We aim to further build the world-wide ICAN reputation as a powerful manufacturing and marketing brand which is known for certified, state-of-the-art carbon wheelsets. And we launched the TRIAERO brand in 2017, to specialize in carbon frames. ICAN remains a separate brand, dedicated to wheels. We intend to build these brands much further, and go far beyond our already-excellent service delivery and customer satisfaction ratings.
Our values and ambitions
These are expressed in the company motto: Quality first, prestige highest. ICAN and TRIAERO are committed to the best available materials and manufacturing methods. We are aiming for a position as iconic brands respected by cyclists everywhere as a top producer of carbon cycling equipment.
We started in 2009, as the Shenzhen ICAN Sports Equipment Company Limited, making bicycle wheels. Since then the product line has expanded, and the original ICAN foundation has grown into a powerful and popular brand, with a wide international marketing reach. Right now, at the design and manufacturing complex in Shenzhen, more than 200 workers construct some 1000 wheelsets per month, as well as 1800 frames of all types. Frames make up 30% of our production at present, but this figure has begun to increase rapidly with the advent of the TRIAERO frame brand.
ICAN's advanced wheels and TRIAERO carbon frames continue to give satisfaction to recreational and competitive cyclists all over the world – in locations including French, Germany, Italy, and Singapore. Our warehouses serve customer needs from bases in California, the UK, Japan, Canada and Sydney, Australia. These units offer fast, free shipping – and prepay any local taxes. On this website, there's a live display of international customer transactions, as they happen.
The ICAN and TRIAERO design teams dream up innovative, top-notch items which keep happy customers coming back for more performance boosts. Our engineers are continually pushing the design envelope to make products lighter and stronger than ever – at a reasonable price. The online buyer of an ICAN wheelset can choose from a long list of carbon wheels, all designed and spoked for specific cycling purposes and activities – to be as stiff, light and comfortable as the rider requires. Our designers are well up on the latest research on the aerodynamics of the combined tire and rim cross section. It should look like a teardrop, not a light bulb. This profile also provides low rolling resistance for greater speed. The ICAN wheelsets are built with a range of quality hubs and spokes, from prestige international brands such as Sapim and Novatec.
We take pride in our innovative frame designs. The new TRIAERO A2 road frame weighs 800 grams. An upgrade would be impossible, as this professional machine is ready for any grand tour. The lightweight Rocket SL and Triaero models are specifically designed for races with long mountain passes and uphill finishes. These designs are inspired by the latest research findings on frame performance.
The world of mountain biking
Branded MTB frames from Shenzhen come in as many variations as there are off-road cycling disciplines. You'll find everything from hard-tail to full suspension frames, and every possible kind of MTB frame. The Shenzhen experts turn out a wide selection of MTB frames, which range from boosted 29er rigs to fat bike beach cruisers and dedicated cyclocross mounts. The frame geometry has been thought out very carefully and tested by our designers to provide stability and steering responses best suited to the event, be it single track, downhill, or MTB stage races. Wheelbase, over-locknut measure and steering geometry play prime roles in the success of these frames. In many cases they are available in a wide choice of stand-over and stack height measurements – not just a limited small-medium-large range of frame sizes.
Our special frames for track and time trial events are focused sharply on performance. Our aggressive track frames and ICAN wheels have been designed and tested to provide the ultimate in lightweight, stiffness and power transfer. These modern frames give competitors an advantage, with sensitive handling, steep tube angles and close-coupled wheelbases. For the race against the clock, the Arrow X time trial machine is a masterpiece of aerodynamic design, with a disc rear wheel, and a rear brake mount down behind the bottom bracket. This frame is intended to shave minutes and seconds off a top cyclist's solo times.
