TEAM MCLAREN-BAHRAIN CHOOSE VISION AS OFFICIAL WHEEL PARTNER
After three seasons full of victories and milestones, Vision has continued their partnership with team McLaren-Bahrain by becoming their 2020 team wheel supplier. Over the last few years, Vision has provided handlebars (the best selling Metron 5D Integrated above all), stems and seatposts to the Middle Eastern team. Vision has been able to share in celebrating many victories with Team Mclaren-Bahrain like the 2018 Milano-Sanremo and many stages at the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a España. Furthermore, Vision has worked extremely close with the team and its top riders using their expertise and feedback to develop its new generation products. These include the Metron 6D Integrated Handlebar, that originally debuted in pro races with the team, and the Metron TFA Aerobar, a vital weapon during the time trial stages.
«We are proud to be chosen and supporting such a high-level pro team like McLaren-Bahrain – said Maurizio Bellin, General Manager of FULL SPEED AHEAD and VISION Europe. – We have always believed in the importance of sponsorships to growing up with sponsored teams, in addition to the technical quality that we want to provide for the them. For this reason, in the 2020 racing we have increased our partnership with the team, providing, further handlebars, stems and seatpost, our Metron top-of-the-line wheels range».
In the upcoming 2020 race season, the riders of Team McLaren-Bahrain will ride on Merida bikes, equipped with the full top-of-the-line Metron wheel range:
