METRON TFW TUBELESS READY WHEEL MADE HISTORY AT PARIS-NICE
Vision made history again! Swiss rider Stefan Bissegger (EF Education – Nippo) has just achieved a historic triumph at Paris-Nice stage #3 with the brandnew Metron TFW tubeless-ready rear wheel at its debut. Metron TFW (acronym of “The Fastest Wheel”), is a result of 4 years of work for Vision engineers order to provide the fastest TT wheel ever to the pro rider of EF Education-Nippo riders with benefit in terms rigidity and lightweight.
THE WHEEL IN DETAILS:
The Metron TFW uses monocoque ultra performing 3K carbon fiber construction for great stiffness and low weight. With aero performance optimised, ceramic bearings minimise mechanical losses. The handcrafted TFW is all about going fast, and it’s unique using an ultra-light paint that improves aerodynamics and keeps the overall weight down to only 969grams, in nutshell the lightest in the World Tour.
- Ultralight tubeless-ready wheel for TT usage.
- Fine-tuning developed by Vision engineers in Californian based wind tunnel through extensive tests.
- Ultralight paint of only 4 grams with a special chemistry that improves aerodynamics.
- Hubs with special bearings Made in Italy and designed in Vision factory.
- Entirely artisanal built in Italy.
«This triumphal day starts from afar, from years of research and development alongside the PRO teams - admitted Edoardo Girardi, general manager of Vision Europe. - We have constantly closed the gap in our personal "challenge to the time", introducing news and putting our wheels users in the best conditions to achieve their goals. This win with Tubeless Ready wheels is only the latest example about it. Today I am proud to admit that Vision wheels are universally recognized as synonymous of aerodynamics and technology applied to the road and triathlon bike».
