WHEELSET INSTALLATION
1.For mounting tires, carefully follow the instructions provided by the tire
manufacturer.
2.Apply light grease onto the Freehub Body. Install the cassette per
manufacturer’s recommendations. The Shimano freehub body is
compatible with S11 cassette. A spacer (A) is required when mounting
S9 & S10 cassette. The Campagnolo Freehub Body is compatible with C10
and C11 cassettes.
WARNING
A
Do not use Vision carbon specific pads with non carbon (alloy) rims.
3. Insert the Quick Releases into the wheel. The lever of the Quick Releases should go on the nondrive side. Thread the Quick Release nut, but do not tight.
Note: Front Quick Release is shorter than rear.
4. Install the Front and Rear Wheel into the drop-outs of the fork and frame. With the QR lever in
the open position, tighten the QR until it is in contact with the frame or fork dropouts. Close the QR
lever. The QR lever should require substantial effort to close the last 25-30 degrees. If it closes with
only moderate hand pressure, the QR must be readjusted by opening the QR lever, then turning the
QR nut clockwise until the closing action of the QR lever requires the recommended force.
WARNING
• If you are unfamiliar with Quick Release assembly it is recommended to
ask for advice from your local bike shop. Riding with an improperly assembled Quick Release can cause the
wheel to shift while in use resulting in accident and injury.
• Regularly check the QR adjustment. If the Quick Release is not installed correctly, the wheel may become
separated from the fork and result in an accident, personal injury or death.
• Always close the skewer lever completely. Do not allow a frame or fork tube or any other member to
inhibit full lever travel when closing. Failure to close the lever completely will limit cam engagement and the
skewer’s ability to hold the wheel in place.
Note: The QR must be periodically lubricated at the pivot points so it can exert maximum sideways force.

WARNING
Use original Vision spare parts only for your service. Use of incorrect
spoke types and lengths may cause failure of the wheel resulting in accident and person injury.
WHEEL TRUING
CAUTION
Bicycle wheels are straight, round, and stable because of a balance of
spoke tension. The rim’s shape can be changed by tightening and loosening spoke’s nipples. Wheel
truing should be performed by persons with adequate wheel truing experience or training. If you
do not have confidence or experience with wheel truing, take the wheels to a qualified technician
for service.

WHEEL MAINTENANCE
RECOMMENDATIONS
It is the user’s responsibility to examine the product on a regular basis to determine the need for
service or replacement. Cyclists should inspect their bicycle and parts on a regular basis in order
to detect damage that may have occurred from normal use or for missing parts. Check all parts for
damage and wear before every use. Should any problems or concerns arise, discontinue riding the
bicycle and have it inspected by a qualified bicycle technician.
WARNING
Using wheels that have not been installed or centered correctly, present
broken, damaged, or has missing parts may fail or cause rider to lose control of bicycle leading to
accident, resulting in personal injury or death.
HUB MAINTENANCE
Vision hubs are equipped with high grade, precision, sealed cartridge bearings. Due to varying
factors it is important to have the hub bearings inspected and maintained periodically. The
recommended service intervals are:
• Inspection after each riding season, one calendar year, or 8,000 to 10,000 Km, whichever comes
first.
• After use in rain, storm, muddy, and wet conditions
• Anytime rotational smoothness, signs of corrosion, damage to rubber seals and bearing covers
is apparent.
Tech Tips:
• Avoid getting solvents, aerosol lubricants (as for chain), and strong cleaning solutions on the
hubs. The solvent can wick passed the seals and break down the bearing grease.
• When washing the bike, use only mild soap and a gentle stream of water for rinsing. Always avoid
pressure washing. Such systems can direct super heated water with special wetting agents at 10X
atmospheric pressure, forcing water passed the bearing seal and removing vital bearing grease.
CAUTION
Since specific tools and experience are necessary for hub maintenance,
it is recommended that the service should be done by a Vision Authorized Service Center.
Please contact the Authorized Vision Distributors and Warranty Service Centers closest to your
country of residence. A list of Authorized is posted at VISIONTECHUSA.COM.
RIM MAINTENANCE
-When braking, especially during descents, use both front and rear brakes. Front and Rear brakes
have different benefits and limitations, so use them according to instructions from an experienced
rider. It is important that both rims are employed during descents to properly dissipate heat.
-When riding in wet or dirty conditions, listen for scraping sounds that might indicate soil or grit is
trapped in the brake pad. If so, the pad will be less effective for stopping and extra abrasive against
the rim. Stop, remove the wheel and inspect the pad surface. Remove any debris before it damages
the rim brake surface.
-Water on the rim and brake pads will reduce brake effectiveness. In the wet, allow extra distance
for stopping.
-Vigorous braking will cause brake pads to melt and mark the rim brake track. Do not allow melted
pad material to accumulate on the rim surface. Pad deposits should be removed with care using
a slightly abrasive pad and alcohol. Be careful to keep solvents from reaching the tire or the rim
cement that securing the tire. Pad material on the rim brake track can interfere with brake response,
cause vibration, and create hot spots that could damage the rim.
-If, during frequent inspections, noticeable impact damage or any other deformation of
the rim is apparent, discontinue use and immediately seek advice from an experienced
mechanic. If an experienced mechanic is unavailable, contact Vision directly at
VISIONTECHUSA.COM.
WARNING
In the event of a bicycle accident, discontinue riding the bicycle until
it has been thoroughly examined by a qualified bicycle mechanic, and any damaged parts replaced.
