Double up on an aero ride
Though our motorsport and F1 racing heritage permeates all our designs, its influence is perhaps no more apparent than in the Factor ONE. With its unique Twin Vane EVO down tube, the ONE finds an unconventional solution for greater aerodynamic efficiency with the added benefit of enhancing the frame stiffness to the max.
Factor’s engineers have worked extensively developing the Twin Vane EVO down tube with the dual goal of increasing aerodynamic efficiency and maximum frame stiffness. The Twin Vane EVO incorporates what we learned during the extensive aerodynamic work to design the Factor SLiCK. It’s been developed through CFD in the computer the subsequently optimized and refined in the wind tunnel. This feature on the ONE shows an expertise in design and engineering that is unique to Factor.
This is a frame design focused on the needs of the serious racer. Having been ridden to multiple victories under our sponsored WorldTour riders, the Factor ONE offers the same advanced features for anyone looking to improve their racing stats. Whether attacking the peloton into a headwind, driving at the front of an all-out criterium, or leading a nippy paceline through the rolling countryside, the ONE delivers an exhilarating, fast and supremely powerful ride.
ONE Total Integration System
The ONE Total Integration System takes a holistic approach to the design of every aspect of the front end of the bike, including the head tube, fork, and barstem. Taking advantage of the OTIS assembly, the ONE Disc features complete internal routing; including the hidden front brake hose. Drawing on Factor’s aerodynamic acumen and CFD capabilities, the wide stance ONE Disc fork reduces the volume of the crown where it blends into the headtube. The barstem’s Kammtail shape ensures aero efficiency while the Smart OTIS assembly system allows for 35mm of stack adjustment.
Detailed Attention to Aerodynamics
With a front end design committed to finding the best aero solution for a road racing bike, the Total Integration System used for the ONE also increases the ride stiffness and handling precision.
The continuous downtube-to-chainstay structure of the ONE frame provides exceptional 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 down tube and tall chainstays ensure the extremely efficient power transfer with each pedal stroke. The use of CeramicSpeed® bearings in all parts of the frame guarantee a minimum of friction while keeping all movements smooth and interiors weather resistant.
Deep Airfoil Seat Tube
Deep airfoil seat tube contours and conforms to the rear wheel, nestling it away from the wind. The effect smooths the airflow coming off the rider’s rotating legs. Cut according to very tight tolerances, this effect complements the frame’s ability not only to accept but exploit the aero benefits of wider tires.
Wide stance Seat Stays
Though it can be difficult to appropriate real aerodynamic advances at the rear of the bike, there are methods to help smooth the turbulent airflow around the rider. Wide stance seatstays allow the air run through the frame and wheels, instead of around it. It is a design feature that enhances the aerodynamics as well as the lateral stiffness. It also allows greater clearance for wider tires.
Optimized Tire Size
While most aerodynamic wheels work best with 23mm tyres, we’ve engineered the ONE Chassis and Black Inc wheels so their sweet spot is with tires between 25 and 28mm wide.
Wide range of Barstem sizes
Factor’s ONE V3 Integrated barstem offers exceptional integration and has been designed to accommodate clip-on aero bars.
