Gravel Bike - GS1

Born and tested in Utah’s Uinta Mountains, the GS1 offers off-road comfort and versatility without sacrificing speed. It’s the ultimate gravel machine: revolutionary design and cutting-edge engineering, all wrapped up in a sleek, speedy package.

On-Road Responsiveness, Off-Road Speed
To go from predictable road to unstable dirt, you need a bike prepared to handle new terrain with confidence. Developed with a geometry-first approach, the GS1 meets the unique demands of gravel riding.

Sleek Speed
Just like its all-road counterpart, the NS1, the GS1 is a refined aero bike that handles well, accelerates like a rocket ship, and looks great while doing it.

Stable Handling
Our POP (Predictable Optimized Performance) Gravel Geometry puts the rider into the best position to handle whatever the trail may demand. With a longer top tube, slacker steering, and a compact cockpit, the GS1 is built to be secure and predictable—whether you’re climbing a rocky trail or ripping down a loose descent.

Road Bike - NS1

The Ventum NS1 shatters the notion that a road bike has to be either lightweight or aerodynamic. Every element of the Ventum NS1 has been optimized for maximum aerodynamic performance. And yet, fully configured, the NS1 weighs as little as 14.9 pounds. Any lighter and it would be illegal to race.

Engineered for performance; designed for versatility. The Ventum NS1 road bike can handle whatever you want it to—whether that’s a casual local ride or an all-out race up a mountain pass. This all-road, performance-driven bike is made using the best materials available and an advanced silicon EPS manufacturing process. The result is a bike frame that is lighter, stronger, and longer-lasting.

The Ventum NS1 combines forward-thinking design with the most advanced manufacturing technologies available. The NS1 features a clean design, fully integrated cable routing, disc brakes, and clearance for tires up to 30mm wide.

Triathlon Bike - Ventum One

The Future of Speed, Refined
Developed over 4 years, the all-new Ventum One takes the fastest bike in Kona to the next level. Featuring improved adjustability, superior braking, and increased storage culminating into our most aerodynamic bike to date.

Speed & Comfort
The Ventum One’s redesigned front end is focused on adjustability and speed. The telescoping monoriser and tilt function, combined with the increased pad stack and reach, allows for your optimal fit and aero position.

Our patented Z-shaped frame design promotes stability in high crosswinds as experienced at the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona. Ventum’s patented hydration bottle integrated into the top tube allows athletes to hydrate without compromising their aero position. The bottle actually reduces aerodynamic drag and makes the Ventum One the only bike that is faster with a water bottle than without.
