Chainsets & Bottom Brackets
As well as manufacturing a strong range of wheelsets for all types of riders, Vision were largely behind the movement towards ceramic bearings in bottom brackets. In the 2004 Athens Olympics, only one rider was using ceramic bearing technology, at any high level event today, more than 90% competitors rely on ceramic bearings for the ultimate in performance. In the production of chainsets too, Vision pursue innovative options in the pursuit of excellence. Crank arms, for example are manufactured using air bladder moulding technology. FSA hollow cranksets are a true monocoque construction offering great strength and light weight.
