ATB Sales is to host the UK’s first showing of the Vision Metron groupset at at October’s Cycle Show.
Seen only at Eurobike to date, the new ten-speed groupset centres around a BB30 equiped, hollow weave carbon crank and carbon/7075 aluminium chainrings.
Designed to work in perfect harmony with the Vision Metron aero shifters and Vision Metron carbon derailleur, the Metron ten-speed cassette is constructed using steel-pinned construction for light weight and longevity. To assure quick and precise shifting, each cog features ramps and pins for optimal chain engagement. The Vision Metron ten-speed cassette is compatible with Shimano cassette bodies, teeth available 11-23 or 11-25.
The Metron aero shifter features an ergonomic design that sits comfortably in the rider’s hand. With a simple pull of the trigger lever the rider is able to upshift up to three cogs at a time. The aerodynamic levers then return to the starting position.
This unique design eliminates the need for the rider to move their hands from the extensions, and thus maintain an aero position while shifting. Downshifts are equally simple, using a small button integrated into the lever housing. A simple and intuitive compression of the button results in seamless down shifts. The Vision Metron shifters weight only 205-grams per pair and are compatible with Shimano drivetrains.
Trade registration for the Cycle Show is free of charge and can be done quickly and easily here.
