At Ventana, we build art that is functionally superior as well as it is visually stunning. We build our frames by hand, in-house, to the highest industry standards. We design, machine, cut, weld, heat treat, powder coat and assemble our frames in our shop in the United States of America. We take pride in our workmanship and strive to exceed our customers' expectations in all aspects of their experience with Ventana be it purchasing, riding or service. Ventana owners are a vital part of our growing family of loyal supporters and compatriots.

Our Approach

From doing everything on a frame in-house to the way Sherwood thinks about design — a lot goes into to making Ventana frames unique.

We're not the new kids on the block. We've been building Ventanas for 28 years and our off-road bicycling experience is over 4 decades deep. Behind every frame is all those years of hard-won knowledge.
