Bike Tech – USA Cycling Unveils High-Tech Pursuit Bike

Ted Burns: Cycling News

The left side drive train is a custom design by Vision based on its Metron TT crankset.  It sports an aerodynamic chain ring cap and a Stages power meter with dual sensors.
 
In addition to the unusual frame, the women will use Hed wheels, specially designed to fit the narrower aerodynamic fork and rear stays. The wheels will be fitted with Vittoria tyres for their low rolling resistance.
 
The resulting pursuit cycle could shave up to four seconds off a team pursuit time
