A distinctive custom Ventum

Ventum introduced their Lotus inspired frame design to the triathlon world about a year ago, and they recently finished a unique custom frame for the man who helped them get going.

"This frame is a gift for His Excellency Yousef Al Otaiba, the UAE ambassador to the USA," said Ventum co-founder Diaa Nour. "Yousef is like a big brother to me and has counseled me through many difficult personal and professional situations. In fact, Ventum as you know it today would not exist if it weren't for him. He's the first person I went to for advice when I was debating starting this project with Jimmy [Seear]. We sat down on a bench in his backyard and spoke about it at length. When the conversation ended, I knew what I had to do."

According to Diaa Nour, it was very difficult to make that transition to the water reservoir look sharp.

There is doubt as to who owns this fast frame.

Intricate details can be found everywhere.

The UAE flag required a lot of detail and patience.
