Nathan Killam’s Ventum NS1

Here's a closer look at Killam's Ventum NS1 in Sentosa, Singapore

This past weekend, Nathan Killam, a long course specialist, took part in the Super League Triathlon (SLT) grand finale in Sentosa, Singapore. Despite it being the final race of the 2018-19 Championship series, for many of those racing, including Killam, it was the first race of the season.

Earlier this year, Killam announced his new partnership with Ventum Racing, and SLT Singapore was his first race on the new bike.

For the 2019 long course season, you can expect Killam to be riding the Ventum One. But in Singapore, Killam displayed Ventum’s new road bike – the NS1. Here’s a closer look at his new ride.

Model: 2019 Ventum NS1

Groupset: Rotor UNO fully-hydraulic groupset (that means the shifting too)

Wheels: Easton EA90SL

Words from Killam:

I like the concept of a fully hydraulic groupset, because I’m a Red Seal certified Heavy Duty Mechanic and have a lot of experience with hydraulic systems. So, I feel very comfortable with the hydraulics, and it speaks to my background.

I’m super excited to be racing with Ventum through the next two seasons. I’ve been really impressed with the One TT bike, and this NS1 is absolutely rocking my socks off (it’s been getting a lot of attention and comments around at Super League Singapore).

What can you expect from Killam this year?

This season, with the help of Ventum, I’m hoping to improve my bike even more. I’m still working through the race schedule. Unfortunately, Wildflower was going be my long course season opener, but as it’s been cancelled. So, I’m wide open with race options. But, I will be back at Victoria 70.3 for sure and will mostly race in North America this season.
