ViSTA signature all-road geometry is purpose-built for under power with excellent handling traits to keep you in control, wherever you ride it – and you can ride it just about anywhere.
The Factor ViSTA; the heart of a thoroughbred with the soul of a mudder.
ViSTA is designed as a system-integrated chassis comprised of frame, fork, barstem and seatpost for the ultimate all-road endurance performance.
Built to go further, faster.
To ensure a smooth and stable ride, the specifically optimized seatstays along with the upper portion of the downtube and fork legs contribute to comfortable and controlled riding over long distances.
Maintaining Factor’s characteristic torsional BB stiffness, the ViSTA features our continuous downtube-to-chainstay “power-drive” construction.The ViSTA uses it’s torsionally stiff headtube-downtube junction along with it’s OTIS AR external fork and barstem to provide excellent front wheel tracking and cornering precision for confidence inspiring descending.
Special care has been paid to the fork trail and BB drop to maintain consistent handling across all sizes, resulting in a stable yet responsive machine, hallmark traits of all Factor bikes.
The balanced combination of the stack and reach with the OTIS-AR barstem combined with VISTA’s all-road, size-specific carbon layup puts the rider in the optimal position to race, further and longer.
Detailed Design for All-Roading
The ViSTA features an all-road optimized version of this system. Not just tested in the lab, the initial prototype components saw many miles under aggressive riders and conditions to arrive at the final carbon layup and material selection. The fork legs’ carbon layup has been optimised for shock and vibration absorption, while remaining torsionally stiff thanks to the external, double clamp design and solid barstem connection.
The flat-back VISTA AR seatpost profile offers enhanced compliance compared to a round seatpost, while the elaborated long fiber carbon layup avoids bobbing under power.
Power Drive Drivetrain
The continuous downtube-to-chainstays structure provides minimum energy loss and maximum drivetrain efficiency. A BBright bottom bracket shell and asymmetric wide downtube delivers torsional stiffness while allowing plenty of tyre clearance.
Optimized Tyre Clearance
The frame has clearance for up to 35mm tyres, but is optimized for tyres from 30 to 35mm. Focusing this range is intentional in order to avoid the poor handling associated with larger tyres.
Compatible with 1X and 2X chainsets and either mechanical or electronic drivetrains. The ViSTA chassis includes a removable FD hanger, a 1X cover and all grommets needed electronic drivetrain cables.
