The new Factor ONE goes beyond aerodynamics to be the fastest aero road bike ever, not on paper or in the wind tunnel, but on the road. With the Twin Vane Evo downtube at its core, the new ONE has been designed for aerodynamic efficiency and maximum frame stiffness. Leading the peloton against the headwind, an all-out criterium or at a fast paceline through the rolling countryside, the new ONE is sure to deliver an exhilarating, fast ride.
Profiting from all the aerodynamic work to design the Factor SLiCK (time-trial/triathlon machine), Factor’s R&D team has translated that tube-shaping knowledge to a road bike platform. Using the AG2R Pro-Tour approved geometry from the O2, the new ONE comes loaded with unique features.

We offer the ONE and ONE Disc in two possible configurations, and we do this for a very specific set of reasons.
We offer the ONE as a Chassis. Our Chassis is frame, fork, headset, bottom bracket, integrated barstem and seatpost. We do this rather than offer just a frame and fork because we have engineered our chassis to work together as a system. When we talk about balance, we’re talking about our obsessive attention to ride quality. Anyone can make a stiff bike or a light bike. We have created a bike that is aerodynamic, light, stiff and rides unlike anything else you’ve encountered. That ride quality depends on using our integrated barstem and seatpost which is designed specifically for the ONE.
Finally, we offer a Rolling Chassis. The Rolling Chassis adds wheels to our Chassis of frame, headset, bottom bracket, fork, integrated barstem and seatpost. We have engineered our Black Inc wheels to be the best possible wheel to work with our bikes. A bike is a system and what wheel and tire you choose can change a bike’s aerodynamics significantly. Our frames perform better when paired with our Black Inc wheels, and similarly, our Black Inc wheels perform best when paired with our frames.
Our attention to detail on the ONE is absolute, from precisely controlling the material and resin production process, right down to everyday practical detailing that ensures that assembly and maintenance are as refined as the ride itself:
Twin Vane Evo Downtube
OTIS external steerer fork with wide stance legs
OTIS Evo aero barstem
All-internal cable routing
Wide stance airfoil seatstays
Clearance up to 28 mm tyres
Electronic drivetrain only
Rim and Disc brake versions available
7 frame sizes
