Vision's Metron carbon wheels have a proven track record in the World Tour peloton, propelling some of the sports fastest riders to victory. Its excellent Metron 55 Disc Wheelset meets the demands of the modern road cyclist namely with its centerlock disc rotor and tubeless tire compatibility, along with its ability to pair with today's wider rubber for better handling and aerodynamics. So if your road or TT ride is in need of some new wheels that'll provide an aero edge, have a look at these fast beauties that come in at nearly half the price of some of the other brands. These particular Metrons have a 55mm deep and 25mm width profile, honed from Vision's CFD and wind tunnel testing and are designed to reduce drag and hold speed while pairing better with the increasingly wider road rubber between 25 to 30mm wide. Further aerodynamic touches come from the reduced distance between the hub flanges, and the straight pull bladed spokes threading into its durable ABS nipples. The ABS nipples use a special self-locking design to keep spokes from loosening and thus, coming out of true. This results in a wheelset that's durable and will remain true for many seasons. The efficiency doesn't just extend to the flats, in fact, this wheelset is a stage racer or one-wheelset rider's dream come true. At 1690-grams, it isn't a burden on the climbs and is just at home at everyday training as it is for weekend racing duties. Vision builds these wheels by hand and laces it an asymmetric 2:1 pattern front and rear with 21 spokes up front and 24 in the rear. By doubling up the spokes on the drive side rear and disc side front, it helps improve the power transfer and braking torque and allows the spoke tension to be higher on the reduced spoke side for better balancing of tension that's inherent in dishing the wheels for a rotor or cassette. Speaking of cassettes, this version comes with an alloy Shimano/SRAM 11-speed road freehub body. To ensure smooth spinning for several seasons,...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
