Riders have long understood that a deeper wheel is dramatically affected by side winds, and that riding in side-winds is not uncommon. The Metron 81 handles those side-winds better than any comparable wheel of this depth. These wheels feature low drag construction where all the wheels components are specifically designed to reduce drag. This allows riders to achieve maximum speed with minimum pedaling effort. Reduced distance between the hub flanges, aero spokes and special rim profiles are the key points.
One of the reasons why wheels come out of true is due spoke nipples getting loose. Nipple ABS has special self-locking nipples to prevent spokes from loosening, assuring wheel trueness and the highest reliability.
About the Vision brand
Since its birth in the ‘90’s, Vision has been synonymous with a no-expense spared assault on wind resistance. Recent years saw the innovative application of carbon fiber and the creation of dream-like shapes to enhance performance. Perhaps no aerobar line has been so imitated, but usually with little success. Following yet another triumphant season in triathlon and TT, Vision is again the brand to beat. In Ironman competition, Vision has led the way by innovating slippery-fast aero products that actually function properly in race conditions. Aerodynamics combined with adjustability and fit take years to combine correctly. 2012 continues the quest for speed with the new Metron TFA aerobar. The TFA is UCI legal, exceptionally light, and rigorously tested with Computational Fluid Dynamics and wind tunnel testing. Along with the TFA, Vision continues to lead the industry with adjustment friendly semi-integrated, clip-on, and UCI legal bar options, as well as the revolutionary Metron groupset. Vision also becomes the driving force for new wheel technology in 2012 with a stunning range offering significant weight savings at price points not seen before. Visions' wheel assembly programme features both carbon and alloy rims with CNC hubs manufactured in-house by FSA's own purpose built wheel factories. The rims and hubs are combined with high precision SKF bearings and Sapim spokes to be hand built in Italy, the Artisan wheelbuilder adding a serial number to each wheel. FSA Italy and the new FSA UK Technical support centre offer advice, spares and support to keep your wheels rolling.
