factor BIKES x rocket ESPRESSO

Limited Edition

A collaboration brewed organically, celebrating two of life’s greatest pleasures, coffee and cycling.

  This limited edition Factor O2 paint scheme has been developed in collaboration with Rocket Espresso and custom paint shop Fat Creations. Each bike will be numbered and only a limited edition of bikes will be available. Available to order as a custom option on the Factor O2 directly through Factor Bikes UK. The bike can be ordered in rim or disc configuration, as a frameset or as a complete build.  Contact us using the form at the bottom of this page to register your interest or place an order.

The Design

  The custom design for the bike is inspired by Rocket Espresso’s very own cycling kit. One of the company’s owners, Andrew Meo is an accomplished cyclist and Italian Road Race Champion. A heritage of cycling runs through the company with Rocket Espresso fuelling several WorldTour teams.

The Rocket Espresso bike features a deep blue base colour and a specially mixed orange/gold highlights for the logos and details. The toptube of the bike displays the dotted design that is found on the brand’s signature R58 Machine.

The Rocket Espresso logo can also be found on the top and down tube. Each bike is hand-painted by the highly-skilled team at Fat Creations in the UK.

The Collaboration

What is the easiest way to a cyclist’s heart? Coffee.   When the Factor Bikes UK Customer Experience Centre was established, a Rocket Espresso machine was one of the first requirements. Having the ability to serve locally roasted coffee from one of the best machines on the market was essential to offering our discerning customers the complete Factor experience. All customers and visitors to the Customer Experience Centre are offered a fresh coffee from Factor’s custom Rocket Espresso machine, expertly brewed by Factor’s mechanic and barista, Rob.

After receiving the custom-designed ‘Rocket Espresso for Factor’ R58 machine, a Rocket-powered Factor O2 seemed only logical and a collaboration was born.
