Verenti have been working hard with leading tubing manufacturers to design the best tubing available for each frame. After much research and testing we decided on a variet PBS 7046 aluminium alloy tubing for the Millook, which is a 7000 series alloy tube but is 16% stronger and 12% lighter than 7005 tubing.
The unique way the tubes are drawn allows us to achieve the perfect synergy between power transfer and optimal stiffness, this combined with Columbus Tusk Carbon Fork and rear-stays gives the Millook the ideal light frame and produces a comfortable and supple ride.
Basically, this means its has been designed to be fast, light and also comfortable.
The Verenti Sportive range and the specially designed 'Me' components, will, we believe, garner enthusiastic interest from riders of all ages and abilities. Whether a long-in-the-tooth sportive veteran or a novice looking to enter his/her first event, they will be drawn to a bike from, and the promise of the Verenti range.
We want you to have the same confidence in our products as we do; so we have made sure that our bicycles conform to and exceed all the latest European standards (Road standard: EN147810) which involves rigorous testing by the worlds leading testing facilities: The SGS Group. Customers Please Note: These bikes come with a Columbus Tusk Carbon Fork as per description not the one picturedNote: Manufacturer may reserve the right to change the specification of that listed or shown on this page.

It's certainly got the looks with white decals on smart black paint, and red detailing that's matched by red brake hoods and excellent performing red Gore Ride-On cables - both of which come with the SRAM Rival drivetrain. Finishing kit is shiny black Wiggle own-brand, with the Me3 bar, stem and seatpost all made from 6061 aluminium. They all do their job well, adding to the efficient but always comfortably firm quality of the ride.
A closer look at the spec sheet shows some clever mixing and matching of materials and components in this build. Take the still aluminium bar and stem combo, which wastes little precious upper body effort through flex, while still managing to isolate your hands from uncomfortable road vibration with added gel padding under the bar tape. Likewise a first glance at the elgant but uncompromising-looking 31.8mm alloy seatpost might worry you about ride comfort. But the high-modulus carbon fibre seatstays and chainstays must be working together well, because despite the rewardingly direct power transfer for climbing and all-out sprints, the ride is still wasily plush enough for you to be seated all day.
The triple-butted main frame triangle is working just as hard, as there's no noticeable flex when sprinting, nor fore and aft frame flex in high-cadence seated sprints. Wiggle's Paul Bolwell says the company looked hard for a frame material to reproduce the qualities of scandium Kiron bikes last year, and is more than happy with this 7046 aluminium tubing. The 7000 series allow is claimed to be 16 percent stronger than commonly used 7005, so less is needed for the tubing and weight is reduced by 12 per cent. Bold claims, but the Millook is surprisingly light, efficient to pedal and comfortable - suggesting this tubing and what Bolwell calls "a fortune on tooling" has let engineers put the right amount of metal in the right places, with the right results.
Despite the relatively low weight, the the Millook is wonderfully stable - sit up and take your hands off the bar and it'll keep going straight, even through potholes (an accidental test - don't try this at home!). Best of all, the extra tall head-tube - 45mm taller than the same sized Focus Cayo - combines with the shallow drop bar to give you a wonderfully commanding posture on the bike. Descending and fast cornering is a joy as you can easily reach the drops without throwing your weight forward onto the bar. It's all very well saying that's what you should do on every bike, but with this higher front end, it comes naturally.
It's surprising how often comfort seems overlooked on 'racing' bikes. Surely anyone can go faster, for longer, when their body isn't being beaten up or contorted? "This setup is for people like me," says Bolwell, "who don't want to be bent double all day. Above all, it had to be great for descending".
And it is. You get a head's up riding position on the drops, one-finger braking capability with the competent Me3 dual-pivot brakes, confidence-inspiring steering from the all carbon-fibre fork and stiff, reliable Mavic Aksium wheels, not to mention superbly grippy Vittoria Diamante Pro tyres. The Millook is certainly not backwards in going forwards up mountains - but it positively begs to be hammered down the other side.
So how do you know if the Millook is for you? Well, if your corrent bike is unexciting, has a huge stack of spacers under a stem which is already flipped skywards - and you still can't enjoy descending on the drops like a bat out of hell, then it is.
