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.
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.
Built to go further, faster.
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.

ONE Total Integration System
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.
