01 Overview

Aerodynamics, Integration & Adjustability

Factor is not unique among bicycle manufacturers in our commitment to making the fastest bikes possible. But we are unique in our willingness to spare no expense and in our readiness to think of radical new ways to find solutions to making our bikes aero, lightweight, and responsive. For the SLiCK, Factor’s design and engineering team studied, modified, and enhanced the the frame’s structure in search of the lowest aerodynamic drag and the highest stiffness possible. Every subtle permutation and shape is a performance-driven result of extensive CFD and wind tunnel testing. This is then combined with real-world riding feedback from some of the best time-trialists and triathletes on the planet.

02 Benefits
Twin Vane EVO downtube

Factor developed the Twin Vane EVO down tube to achieve greater aerodynamic efficiency and maximum frame stiffness. Twin Vane EVO is the result of all of what we have learned throughout the extensive aerodynamic research necessary to design the SLiCK. Initially developed through CFD and later optimized in the wind tunnel, Twin Vane EVO displays expertise in design and engineering truly unique to Factor.

Stiffness to complement the aero

Optimized Twin Vane EVO down tube allows the air to pass through while increasing the bike stiffness at the BB and headset. When paired with our Black Inc FIFTY wheels, the two work together to channel wind through the down tube in a smooth flow before the seat tube splits the flow and sends it past the rear wheel. As a result, the SLiCK cuts through the wind while delivering impressive power transfer and offering stable handling.

Factor Mono-Riser Aerobar System

Understanding the importance of the cyclist’s contact points, the Factor Mono-Riser Aerobar System is designed for the optimization of biomechanical alignment, support, and aerodynamics. Designed to withstand the rigors of the Tour de France and the Ironman World Championships, it uses the finest materials for each application, from the carbon fiber basebar and upper bridge, to 7000 series forged aluminum stem and tower base plate, and stainless steel hardware.

03 Features

Driven by an obsession for speed

The Factor SLiCK is a time trial and triathlon bike driven by obsession. It’s the result of our obsession for speed, for boundary-pushing performance, for versatility and adjustability.

CeramicSpeed bottom bracket

To ensure the absolute smoothest ride without compromising on durability, the CeramicSpeed PF4630 bottom bracket offers a lifetime of performance. The CeramicSpeed bearings with Wheels MFG 24mm BBRight Reducers/Adapters provide low friction and long term functionality coupled with easy maintenance.

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 to accept 28mm tires by keeping almost no gap between frame and tire.

Wide stance seatstays

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.

External Fork

The SLiCK External Fork features a hidden, integrated brake and wide stance, along with deep airfoil profiled legs to enhance the aerodynamic properties.

Aerobar Mounted BTA

Directly mounted to the aerobar, the BTA mount comes standard on the SLiCK. The BTA mount allows for forward or rearward bottle mounting in between the pads.

Seatpost & Stem Options

Factor SLiCK is available either with a zero or 25mm offset seatposts. The aerodynamic profile allows for easy Di2 internal battery installation. The 1-bolt saddle clamp offers an easy setup, and is available for carbon and metal saddle rails (7×9 or 7×7 rails) Zero and +40mm stems are available, to fit a wide range of stacks and TT or Triathlon styles.

Carbon StoraPak

The Factor SLiCK includes a seat-tube mounted StoraPak. The StoraPak is fully integrated with no aerodynamic penalty and allows for easy installation. StoraPak has room for 2 inner tubes, tire levers, CO2 inflation device with 2 spare cartridges and a small multi-tool.
