Christmas Tips: Metron 6D Integrated Handlebar
Looking for a cockpit upgrade for your bike this Christmas?
Vision Metron 6D carbon integrated handlebar is an alternative solution to the best-selling Metron 5D, with both chosen by the WorldTour teams: Bahrain-Merida, Jumbo-Visma, EF Education First and Astana team during the 2019 racing season.
The success of the Metron 5D integrated handlebar is due to the following features:
• Rigidity: the wide "clamping area" integrated between the integrated coupling and the handlebar creates a rigid and compact structure, much appreciated by sprinters when they release their power.
• Aerodynamics: thanks to the wing-like shape of the bar top.
• Ergonomics: the 10° angle forward ensures a more natural position of the wrists and a wider position of the elbows, which facilitates breathing.
Thanks to this last feature, the Metron 5D is also chosen by climbers, who benefit from its comfort and ergonomics. For example, the Canadian Michael Woods used it during the 2018 World Championships in Innsbruck, reaching the third final position. Metron 5D is the only handlebar that combines ergonomics and aerodynamics.
Metron 6D, on the other side, is the solution for the cyclist who has greater confidence in a traditional design. In fact, this handlebar has the same advantages and characteristics as the 5D, but it has an angle of 0° to the upper bar.
