Let’s get Technical: Why the Different Shapes?
In this weeks blog, we’ll be divining into a little technical talk about our frame design, specifically the rear end. Why it looks different from others and how it benefits you. We will also share what’s new inside Ventum and have a sneak peek at next weeks blog.
So, let’s get techy! What does asymmetrical mean? The definition of asymmetrical is having two sides or halves that are not the same, i.e. not symmetrical. The chainstays of the Ventum One and Z have an asymmetrical design. We came to the shape from extensive structural and aerodynamic testing,while the final tuning of the stays came from road testing/handling of the bike.
Now on to whats new inside Ventum.
Ventum acquires professional mechanic, Jeff Yingling, for 2018 and onward.
Many professional and amateur athletes alike, know Jeff for his flat caps, sunglasses and skills on the tools. But in the bicycle industry he is known for his technical knowledge and creativity. Here at Ventum, Jeff will be aiding in the design of future bikes/products and assisting the marketing team with Social Media content creation and management.
“When I heard Jeff was available, I knew we had to have him on the Ventum team. He has seen the growth of Ventum since day one, brings a new perspective, fresh ideas and is all around a great guy. Only set back is his hair, its way to short.”-Says Diaa Nour, co founder of Ventum.
“I felt it was only a matter of time before I joined Diaa, Jimmy and the Ventum team. We all go back a few years and have always been close in the industry, sharing crazy ideas/napkin drawings and just having fun. I’m really excited for this new venture as I get to be as creative as I want from Social Media/Marketing projects to designing new components or even frames. I get to work with my friends and support our professional athletes on the tools. What more could I really ask for?”- Jeff Yingling.
Keep your eye out for Jeff at the races inside the Ventum tent and be sure to say hi. He is always willing to talk shop and make sure you have the fastest set up possible come race day.
