There’s no better level of product testing than pushing our bikes to their limit on the roads.
Our valuable team of customers, each riding their custom frames unique to themselves, have taken part in countless cycling events all over the world. Plenty of these rides and events place physical and mental strength not only on the rider, but also stress on their bikes and equipment as well.
Collated below are only few of the many prestigious and demanding events our riders and their Vento X bikes have completed. Ride on!
IRONMAN France 2016
Just last month, one of our riders successfully completed Ironman France. As an introduction, a full Ironman triathlon includes a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride ending of with a 42km run. The terrain in France featured a bike stage with almost 1,000m of elevation. Equipped with a shallow profile climbing wheel-set, the striking light blue custom Vento X.3 was pushed up steep climbs and endured winding and technical descents over the scenic 180km bike route.

A century ride is a bicycle ride of 100 miles, which is equivalent to 160km. Usually a big event with many groups of cyclist participating, century rides are a test of endurance and perseverance – as an average century would take anywhere from 5 to 6 hours for an average cyclist to complete. Together with other local cycling groups, many of our Aleoca riders have taken part and completed different century rides overseas. We’ve had riders complete Melaka Century, Perak Century, Kuantan Century Ride and our local 168km Bike Rally organised by NTU.
