In 2012 Factor launched a collaboration with Aston Martin – the Factor ONE-77 £25k Hyper Bike.
In 2013, they unveiled their first production bike, the innovatively aerodynamic Vis Vires that utterly eschewed the UCI rulebook. Combining all that had come before in a stunning package, it included a bf1systems-developed power meter, their proven Twin Vane split down tube and a split external ‘Dual Bayonet’ fork. The Vis Vires ushered in a whole new era of Superbike; one combining aerodynamics, total integration systems and data in one mould-breaking package. Their Vis Vires platform debuted to unanimous critical acclaim from both the world’s cycling press and prestigious design award committees.
Early the following year, their engineering team began developing their next generation of frames: the ONE, ONE-S and the O2.
Designed with input from both Baden and David Millar – British Road and TT champion and multiple Grand Tour stage winner – the new generation of Factor Bikes continue to build upon this innovative heritage with no compromise luxury performance.
