The Metron 55 is Vision’s Aero Stage Race wheelset. Vision’s Metron 55 is the one wheel you’ll ride once and won’t want to ride without again. This Metron 55 sits comfortably in the mid-range of Vision’s Metron rim depths, and offers the most versatility in the line up. This wheel climbs, descends, corners, and accelerates with the best of them. Vision’s complete wheel system has a 24mm rim width, direct pull bladed spokes, ceramic bearings in P.R.A. hubs, ABS brass nipples, 2 to 1 lacing, CFD / wind tunnel proven aerodynamics, and 100+ pro-podiums over the last few seasons. These wheels are living proof that Vision wheels are among the best in the business. Look no further, you’re new Clincher or Tubular wheelset is waiting.
