IKON BMX is a new company to the BMX Race market, USA Based, offering only the absolute best products in each category they will produce.
Nothing has been spared to create some of the best parts for BMX racing, and IKON comes right out of the gate with an all-new Carbon Fiber rim.
IKON Carbon rims are offered in a 20″ Pro-lite / Pro size (406 ETRTO) 32mm wide version, with 36 holes.
IKON rims weight in at 300 grams for a non-brake surface rim and 305 Grams for the brake track surfaced rim. A comparable Alloy rim with the same size/width weighs in at 390 grams a rim, letting you save up to 180 grams or 6 ounces when using a set of IKON rims!
IKON rims are some of the lightest carbon wheels available today but the strength wasn’t sacrificed to get them to this featherweight.
IKON rims are made from Toray produced T700 Carbon Fiber weave. This type of Carbon is one of the tops of the line Carbon Fibers produced today and this brand of Carbon weave is the leader for producing hi-end products and is one of the most technologically advanced fibers.
IKON rims have a special matte finish on the rims, with glossy water decals, while using a “UD” Carbon Fiber Weave construction.
The rims are available with White, Blue, Red, or Neon Yellow graphics.
IKON rims require a Presta Valved tube.
