Vision Metron 81 Clincher

$2,800, Visiontechusa.com
The draw: Smooth ride

Among super-deep wheels, the comfortable ride of the Metron 81 Clincher stands out. Despite the deep rims, vibration over rough pavement is held to a minimum. Crosswinds have a moderate effect on stability—you won’t be blown off the road on account of this wheelset. Braking performance is decent but not exceptional when compared with some other aero options.
