About Ventum Bikes
We believe Ventum bikes stand out from the crowd, not just because of their stylish looks, but more importantly with their performance driven design excellence.
The Ventum Family
Having launched with the patented 'Z' shaped Ventum One triathlon bike, Ventum since added both road and gravel bikes to their offer. All Ventum bikes are designed from scratch by a combined team of engineers and pro-athletes, crafting the perfect balance between handling, aerodynamics, comfort and weight.
NS1 Road Bike
Award-winning design with a fully customisable set-up. The NS1 will handle any road, any time.
GS1 Gravel Bike
Whoever said a gravel bike can't be aerodynamic has never ridden the GS1. Optimised for comfort and speed off-road, the GS1 handles like a dream, rides like the wind and brings high-performance to gravel riding.
Ventum One and Ventum Z Triathlon Bike
The original patented 'Z' shaped Ventum One redefined aerodynamics and comfort with a triathlon-specific design and build, full customised to you. The Ventum Z brings the engineering, design and fit to all athletes at an entry-level price.
The Ventum Story
Ventum Founder Diaa Nour shares the story behind the bike and the brand in this exclusive Neuff Red interview.
Ventum’s story begins in a similar way to many favourite brands: in a small garage late at night. Jimmy Seear was a pro athlete from an engineering family with a concept design for the best, most aerodynamic triathlon bike for him and his friends. When Jimmy connected with businessman Diaa Nour, this pet project quickly developed into a viable product and business model. The two founders perfected a unique design for the Ventum One 'hyper bike' and the brand was launched in 2015 at the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Designed to be the best bike specifically for triathletes rather than simply adapting ICU-legal TT frames, the radical 'Z' shaped frame, inspired by non-traditional bikes from previous decades, featured integrated hydration and superb customisability. Tested not only in the wind tunnel, but also with pro-athletes, the Ventum One decreased drag by 117g (24%) over the top triathlon bikes of the time, all whilst handling like a dream.
On the Ascent
VENTUM became the official bike sponsor for the 2016 Ironman World Championship. Passing the most stringent stress and deflection testing in the industry, the Ventum One was the first “non-traditional” bike frame to be declared legal by the international governing body of triathlon. The Ventum One was not only very fast, it was also very safe.
The introduction of the Ventum Z in 2017 made the patented 'Z' shape more accessible at a lower price point, whilst keeping the incredible performance for which Ventum had by now gained a solid reputation.
By 2018, Ventum partnered with Ironman to be their first Global Bike Partner, a milestone which saw Ventum represented across the globe.
2019 saw the introduction of the NS1, Ventum’s first UCI legal road bike. Once again, this bike was designed right from the drawing board by a team of athletes as well as engineers, resulting in an optimal balance of aerodynamics, light weight, compliance and clean handling for tackling any road. Using advanced carbon layup and Graphene design and technologies, the NS1 is one of the lightest and strongest road frames on the market today.
Not content with standing still, in 2020 Ventum launched their GS1 gravel bike. Whilst most triathlon bikes prior to the Ventum One had been simple adaptations from TT bikes, so gravel bikes have largely been adapted road or hybrids. Shattering this concept and designing specifically with gravel racing in mind, the Ventum GS1 combines the best carbon technology and design with real-world aerodynamics, handling and comfort to create a gravel bike that will ride everywhere, comfortably handles aero riding and is our absolute new favourite!
2021 started with the Ventum NS1 winning the Bicycling Magazine bike awards and there is more to come from this soon-to-be iconic brand. With their focus on innovation and performance, you can be sure that 2021 and beyond will see the more world-leading product options.
