Schmitt & Ongaro Vision FX and Vision Elite Wheels
The new stainless-steel Vision FX and Vision Elite wheels from Schmitt & Ongaro draw the eye and are built to last. They offer all the beauty, craftsmanship and value expected from one of the industry's pre-eminent makers of fine marine steering wheels.
An optimized manufacturing method makes the new Vision models significantly lighter, which allows Schmitt to provide even greater value to the customer, while still maintaining the high polish, strength and precision performance afforded by a premium wheel.
The classic three-spoke design has patented finger grips to ensure a comfortable grip and excellent handling power. Solid marine-grade 316 stainless steel Vision wheels carry a lifetime anti-corrosion warranty.
The Vision FX wheel features precision-machined flange bearings, and is available both with and without a standard capped control knob. For the ultimate in durability and sleek good looks, the Vision Elite model comes equipped with an all-stainless steel control knob, fitted with glass ball bearings for smooth spinning action. As with all Schmitt & Ongaro wheels, the smooth knobs have no exposed locknuts, bands or bolts to catch on sleeves. Their position on a spoke rather than the rim promotes ergonomic ease while permitting maximum helm clearance.
Both Vision FX and Vision Elite models come in 13-1/2" or 15-1/2" diameters. Vision FX wheels without control knob have a retail starting price of $181, while the control knob version has a starting price of $225. Vision Elite wheels have starting prices of $247.
