Description of FSA Vision Metron 55 Carbon Wheel Set Clincher - red
Vision’s ultrafast and stable aero wheel developed through extensive CFD analysis and wind tunned testing. After years of proving FSA Vision wheels strengths and durability at Paris Roubaix, the Metron 55 represents the next step in their understanding wheel aerodynamics. Riders have long understood that a deeper wheel is dramatically affected by side winds, and that riding in sidewinds is not uncommon. The Metron 55 handles those sidewinds better than any comparable wheels of this depth. This is achieved by an increased rim width to 24 mm in the area of the brake surface.
Furthermore the Metron 55 is the top level of the vision wheel series. Built with deep section carbon tubular rims, Sapim AERO bladed spokes and new developed PRA hubs with high quality bearings.
The Preload Reduction Assembly called system applies a preload to the hub bearings via threaded clamps. It provides a bearing adjustment without dismounting. Furthermore these hubs are equipped with valuable stainless steel bearings (2 front, 4 rear) guarantee long durability and high resistance to vibration. The light forged bladed spokes fit perfectly into the brass nipples. The perfectly machined rims with a height of 55 mm are made of UD-carbon. The rim profile is only suited for use with clincher tires. Therefore this handmade wheel set is perfectly suited for the fight against wind. Includes two resistant quick releases with stainless steel shaft. Finish rims: UD-carbon, front hub: Carbon, rear hub: cnc-machined and black-anodized with lasered logos, spokes/nipples: black.
