Factor at Beeline

We are delighted to be stocking Factor at Beeline. Factor are a young brand that we’ve had our eye on for some time, thanks to their cutting edge engineering and helped by the fact that the bikes look great too.

Background

Factor began life in 2009 with the FACTOR001, followed in 2012 by collaboration with Aston Martin; the Factor ONE-77, selling for a cool £25k! 

2013 saw the launch of their first production bike, the innovatively aerodynamic Vis Vires with the Twin Vane split down tube. The following year production was upped with the One, One-S and O2 models, with carbon engineer Rob Gitelis and former Tour de France Green Jersey winner Baden Cooke purchasing Factor. This partnership continues to develop Factor, with input from multiple Grand Tour Stage winner David Millar

Aerodynamics

“The fastest bike I have ever ridden” - Romain Bardet, 2016 Tour de France runner up, talking about the Factor Slick TT bike.

CFD - Factor use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software for wind cheating modelling, this all done in house rather than outsourcing to an engineering firm.

OTIS - Factor devised OTIS (One Total Integration System) – a one piece bar and stem decreasing the frontal area and for smoother airflow whilst giving the wind more surface area to follow.

Twin Vane Down Tube - The unique twin vane down tube is aerodynamic whilst retaining the stiffness and feel of a traditional road bike, channelling wind through the downtube in a smooth flow.

Tyre Size -  Factor designed the O2 and One for 25 and 28mm tyres to take advantage of lower rolling resistance and improved traction.

Manufacturing

We don’t need to make the most bikes. We want to make bikes for a discerning cyclist who seeks the best possible experience. We’d rather make fewer bikes and keep our standards intact than sacrifice quality to become a household name” - Factor

To achieve this Factor do not offer cheaper versions of their bikes using lower grade carbon, each frame is Factor’s best effort at producing a bike in that category. This also allows a rigorous control of quality and manufacturing process.
