Looking at the Time Izon and wondering if anyone can comment on wheel/tyre clearance at chain stays and seat stays?

I would be hoping to run either 25mm or 28mm tyres.

I have a 2015 Time Rxs which is exactly the same frame (but no electric compatibility) and I easily run 25mm Contis.

I used to ride a size L Time NXs, which I think was what the frame was called before they renamed it to Izon. On that frame, 25 mm Contis on a 17 mm internal/23 mm external width rim was the max I was comfortable riding in the back. In the front though, a 25 mm Conti was too close to the underside of the fork, so I ran a 23 mm instead for more peace of mind.

Yes, it's clear the Rxs/Izon was designed for larger tires. I have a ton of clearance front and rear with zipp 202s and 25mm conti GP4000 IIs.

I've got an Izon size L, bought in Feb this year, with Campagnolo Neutron wheels & Veloflex Corsa 25mm tyres. Couldn't measure exactly but I'd say there's about 3 or 4mm clearance around the tyres (to the sides and above) both front and rear. Tyres inflated to 100 psi.

Sounds like 25's will be an easy fit, however 28's could be a stretch.
Appreciate the info all.
