Our Ventura bikes borrow heavily from the race-proven geometry of our Xeniths and Icons to help keep you in front on the local Saturday ride. But we’ve softened the edges of that geo just a bit for a more comfortable and confident ride so you can head out again on Sunday, still fresh and ready to hammer your buddies one more time.
The Ventura frame is designed with a taller headtube for a greater range of handlebar and rider positions. Its Enhanced Compliance Offset (ECO) fork features blades that are swept forward, which increases vertical compliance for a more comfortable and controlled ride, without compromising lateral stiffness. The fork is formed in one continuous unit for optimal strength and performance while keeping weight as low as possible, and the tapered steerer increases stiffness. The frame's internal cable routing results in a clean look, while the downtube entry point cleverly prevents cable rub. Finally, the frame utilizes Size Specific Design (SSD), to create the best possible riding bike for each size rider.
The Ventura Comp features a reliable Shimano Sora drivetrain with an 11-32T cassette that'll handle a wide variety of terrain. It rolls on Alex ATD 470 rims which are tubeless compatible and come wrapped in Vittoria's excellent Zaffiro tires. Tektro Lyra flat mount mechanical disc brakes provide ample braking power even in wet conditions. A host of Ritchey cockpit components provide quality and good looks, and a comfy Selle Royal Asphalt saddle tops it all off.
