Function first. Form always. Introducing the all-new Ventum CR5 one-piece gravel cockpit — because nobody ever said you had to sacrifice aesthetics for uncompromising control.

Designed specifically for the Ventum GS1 gravel bike, it’s a one-piece carbon fiber bar/stem combo inspired by the existing Ventum CR2 integrated cockpit, but tuned for gravel and sporting a wider 5cm flair at the drops.

The slightly wider stance — 2.5cm on either side — gives riders greater control when riding in the drops on rough terrain and the new carbon layup gives the cockpit a more forgiving ride than its road-specific counterpart.

In short, it gives when you need it to and stays stiff when you don't.

The new layup allowed us to give the CR5 cockpit a slightly updated look than the CR2, reducing the visual mass of the stem. One thing we kept from the CR2 was the semi-integrated cable routing, which channels the brake hoses through a removable cover underneath the stem. This makes maintinence and packing your bike in a bike case a bit easier than full integrated routing.

Available now on select higher-end Ventum GS1 gravel builds in a number of popular bar width and stem length combinations.
