Highlights of month: Metron 55 SL Tubular

The Metron 55 SL Tubular is Vision’s Aero carbon rim wheelset chosen by EF Education First riders during the 2019 racing season. Thanks to its lightness and aero attitude (55mm depth rim), Metron 55 SL Tubular will be protagonist on the cobblestones of Ronde Van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix as well as the flat and mixed stages of GTs.  


Benefits:
