The only way to deliberately design a bike immune to the wind is to use Computational Fluid Dynamics software (known as CFD). While most outsource, Factor’s modeling is performed exclusively in-house on powerful workstations that make a home computer look like a pocket calculator in comparison.
To achieve superior performance, we devised our OTIS—One Total Integration System. OTIS includes a one-piece bar and stem for smoother airflow, a proprietary external steering fork to decrease frontal area whilst giving the wind more surface to follow and our Twin Vane split down tube.
Likewise, we also designed the frame and fork to be paired with our Black Inc. Three front wheel and Disc rear wheel for the ultimate in slippery speed.
For us, aerodynamics is a fundamental pillar of our work, not an afterthought.
Our soul lives in the union of technology and integration, while your heritage stems from advanced motorsport and aviation.
Because we own our own factory, we exercise complete control over our bikes. We’re free to experiment. Constantly innovate. And tell convention be damned.
All Factor bikes feature master craftsmanship, the very finest materials, innovative engineering and manufacturing processes.
To some, our name may be new. But our work isn’t. Some of the world’s most sought-after bikes are the products of our engineers and craftsmen.
