Vento. High quality aluminium frame road bikes by Kross.
Vento is the name for all Kross road bikes whether sportive frame or the more aggressive race frame. Of the aluminium frame Ventos, the Ventos 4, 3 and 2 are designed for more sportive type riding. This means the frame geometry provides the rider with a slightly more relaxed position. This lends itself to longer rides in greater comfort or perhaps club or group rides. The attitude Kross have toward their road bikes is refreshingly positive in an environment where aluminium bikes are routinely mass produced and boxed in Asia. Kross operate a major manufacturing plant in Poland, and in the case of the aluminium frame Ventos, each and every bike is built and assembled in the Polish plant instead of assembled and boxed in China or Taiwan. This is because of quality control. Kross operate their own QC routine during assembly of each bike and at final check. It is more expensive for the company, but this attitude the company has toward their products, we believe, is the correct one. It results in the highest quality road bikes at their price point and offers the rider confidence in the performance of the bike.
Another area where Kross have decided to return to former times where quality took precedence over cost-cutting. Each aluminium Vento has a consistent groupset. In other words a bike with, for example, a Shimano Tiagra groupset, has both front and rear mechs, front and rear brakes, crankset, shifters and brake levers as a set.
Kross also make a point of not scrimping on cost-saving parts for sections of the bike that are often overlooked. The bottom brackets and wheels, hubs and wheel bearings are all of unusually high quality at each bike price point. In short, a Kross aluminium road bike offers road bike enthusiasts the best and most considered part matching, part quality and quality control assembly available.
