As is becoming something of a common theme during the 2021 season, Jumbo Visma are using sponsor incorrect wheels at this year's Tour de France, and Cyclingnews can confirm that their blacked-out wheels of choice are in fact Metron wheels from Vision. 

At the start of the Tour, there was an altogether more obvious difference to Jumbo Visma's wheels. The blue front tyres symbolizing the team's partnership with Swapfiets grabbed the attention of onlookers, but in the days since, the team made another more subtle change to their bikes. While some of the team's riders are still using their sponsor-provided Shimano wheels, much of the team have been using blacked out, nondescript wheelsets since the start of the race, similar to the hoops that Team BikeExchange were seen using during the Giro d'Italia
