Factor ONE – Beyond Aerodynamics

4961

The new Factor ONE goes beyond aerodynamics to be the fastest aero road bike ever, not on paper or in the wind tunnel, but on the road. With the Twin Vane Evo downtube at its core, the new ONE has been designed for aerodynamic efficiency and maximum frame stiffness.

Profiting from all the aerodynamic work to design the Factor SLiCK (time-trial/triathlon machine), Factor’s R&D team has translated that tube-shaping knowledge to road bike platform. Using the AG2R Pro-Tour approved geometry from the O2, the new ONE comes loaded with unique features.

FACTOR TWIN VANE EVO DOWNTUBE

Factor has worked tirelessly on the development of the Twin Vane Evo downtube, for more aerodynamic efficiency and maximum frame stiffness.

CUTTING THROUGH THE WIND

The Factor ONE has been designed to push the limits beyond anything else seen in the market. Using CFD and wind tunnel data, Factor has perfected the aerodynamic profile of every section in combination with superior riding characteristics.

AERODYNAMICS

Using the most advanced CFD software, the Factor ONE has been shaped for the best aerodynamics without sacrificing riding performance. The resulting shapes have also been validated and perfected at the wind tunnel and during velodrome tests.

FACTOR OTIS

Standing for ONE Total Integration System, the OTIS gives shape to the front of the ONE. The system comprises the following exclusive Factor parts: External steerer fork, Barstem, Internal headset rod and upper compressor

Taking advantage of the OTIS assembly, the ONE Disc features complete internal routing. That includes the hidden front brake hose, only visible where it meets the caliper at the bottom of the fork leg.

FACTOR ONE OTIS EVO BARSTEM

The OTIS (ONE Total Integration System) barstem assembles directly to the top of the external fork, bringing outstanding stiffness while sprinting and precision during cornering. Full internal cable routing cleans up clutter from the front of the bike while still allowing for easy bar stack adjustment and disassembly for travelling.

WIDE STANCE AERO SEATSTAYS

Letting the air run through the frame and wheels, instead of around it, for superior aerodynamics and lateral stiffness.

SEATPOST OPTIONS

Factor ONE is offered with Zero and Offset seatposts, with the aerodynamic profile allowing for easy Di2 battery internal installation. 1-bolt saddle clamp for easy setup, available for carbon and metal saddle rails (7×9 or 7×7 rails).

POWER DRIVETRAIN

The continuous downtube-to-chainstay structure of the ONE frame provides an unparalleled stiffness and power transfer, with minimum energy loss and maximum drivetrain performance.

The use of a wide BBright bottom bracket together with the Twin-Vane Evo downtube and tall chainstays make for a direct propulsion with every pedal stroke, while the CeramicSpeed equipped bearings keep the moving smooth and weatherproof.

BRAKE OPTIONS

Whether it is the ONE or the ONE Disc, each frame and fork has been designed specifically to excel at the highest level.

For the ONE, the rim brakes use the Direct Mount standard, optimized for braking performance without vibrations. The wide stance seatstays keep the rear caliper shielded from the wind.

The ONE Disc uses Flat Mount standard, with recessed caliper hardware mounts for small aerodynamic gains and cleaner looks. The bolt-on Factor 12mm thru-axles keep the whole system tidy and away from the wind.
