Vision releases new Metron 5D Evo integrated bar and stem

Vision has released a new iteration of its Metron 5D integrated handlebar and stem called the 5D Evo.

The new Evo bar builds on the hallmarks of the 5D range featuring a full carbon fibre construction, integrated cable routing and a 10-degree forward sweep across the tops. This profile was introduced on the ACR model in an attempt to improve breathing for riders by allowing for a more neutral wrist position that opened up the elbows and as a result the chest.

Additionally, the Evo comes in two different size bars to better help riders match the ergonomics of the bars to their body. The Evo-L features a narrower depth to the tops of the bars and comes in a range from 90-120mm stem lengths and a bar width of 38-42cm. The Evo-XL has a deeper profile and also comes in longer and wider stem and bar widths ranging from 110-140mm for the stem and 40-44cm bar widths.

Vision claims that the 5D Evo is lighter, more aerodynamic and better at vibration-dampening than previous models. The Evo tips the scales at 320 grams (for the 110mm, 42cm bar), and the stack height of the bar has also been reduced by 1.5cm to increase the bars' aerodynamic performance.

The 5D Evo is available with specific headset spacers that allow you to feed the cabling directly from the bar into the frame. These act as a guide, routing any hoses or cables through the stem and into the frame. This can prevent chafing or fretting of the cables, which can happen when they are fed through the steerer tube.

The 5D Evo cockpit will retail for £595 / €698 / $763 and is available immediately directly from Vision or from a Vision stockist.
