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.
