WTC has nothing to do with ITU bike approvals. Ventum went through a very lengthy process with the ITU to get the Ventum approved to race in ITU non-drafting races including LC Worlds. Many events in Canada and Europe require that an athletes bike needs to meet the ITU bike regulations even when the event is not ITU sanctioned.
The ITU focused mainly on structural testing and we met all their requirements amongst many other things we had to send a random sample of each frame size to be tested by an independent lab in Switzerland. Although this was a very tedious and lengthy process, it was very clear to us at the start of this venture that ITU approval would be crucial to our sales, specifically to sales outside of North America. We are the first non-traditional or non-triangular bike to be approved and the process started many months prior to LC Worlds or our partnership with WTC.
