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.
Detailed Design for All-Roading
Power Drive Drivetrain
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.
Taking advantage of the OTIS assembly, the ONE Disc features complete internal routing; including the hidden front brake hose, only visible where it meets the caliper at the bottom of the fork leg.
The ONE Disc fork has been shaped using Factor’s aerodynamic acumen and CFD capabilities, reducing the volume of the crown where it blends into the headtube. At the same time, the wide stance fork legs allow the air to run through to further decrease aerodynamic resistance while increasing lateral stiffness. This obsession for aerodynamics also keeps things tidy, note also the disc brake caliper housed in a recess of the fork leg.
The latest evolution of the OTIS barstem, the Evo goes a step further with an improved aerodynamic profile and features. The OTIS (ONE Total Integration System) barstem assembles directly to the top of the external fork, bringing outstanding stiffness while sprinting and precision during cornering. Full internal cable routing cleans up clutter from the front of the bike while still allowing for easy bar stack adjustment and disassembly for traveling.
- Nearly invisible to the wind, due to the proven Kamm-Tail airfoil design, unyielding to even the strongest sprint induced torque
- Smart OTIS assembly system allows for 35mm of stack adjustment by adding or taking out included spacers, all while keeping a clean look.
- Ergonomic bar shape with 125mm of drop and 80mm of reach.
- Ample knee clearance during sprints or climbing out of the saddle.
- Full internal cable routing compatible with Di2 and hydraulic hoses
- Full internal cable routing compatible with Di2 and hydraulic hoses and Di2 bar-end junction box.
- All hardware is corrosion resistant stainless
