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 road bike platform. Using the AG2R Pro-Tour approved geometry from the O2, the new ONE comes loaded with unique features.
The new Factor ONE has been developed to be the fastest road bike ever. Not just on paper, but on the road. This is the result of extensive aerodynamic design work, structural manufacturing optimization for best power transfer and integration of components.
Factor Twin Vane Evo Downtube
Factor has worked tirelessly on the development of the Twin Vane Evo downtube, for more aerodynamic efficiency and maximum frame stiffness. The Twin Vane Evo takes all what we learned during the extensive aerodynamic work to design the Factor SLiCK, and has been developed through CFD in the computer and later optimized in the wind tunnel. This feature on the ONE shows an expertise in design and engineering that is unique to Factor.
Cutting Through The Wind
The Factor ONE has been designed to push the limits beyond anything else seen in the market. Using CFD and wind tunnel data, we have perfected the aerodynamic profile of every section in combination with superior riding characteristics.
Using the most advanced CFD software, the Factor ONE has been shaped for the best aerodynamics without sacrificing riding performance. At the Factor Engineering Centre, our team of designers and engineers has run multiple tube shape iterations in pursuit of speed. The resulting shapes have also been validated and perfected at the wind tunnel and during velodrome tests.
Standing for ONE Total Integration System, the OTIS gives shape to the front of the ONE. The system comprises the following exclusive Factor parts:
The benefits of this design are many:
Taking advantage of the OTIS assembly, the ONE Disc features complete internal routing. That includes 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 know-how 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. With the same obsession for aerodynamics and to keep things tidy, the disc brake caliper is housed in a recess of the fork leg.
Otis Evo Barstem
The latest evolution of the OTIS barstem, the Evo goes a step further with 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 travelling.
Wide Stance Aero Seatstays
Letting the air run through the frame and wheels, instead of around it, for superior aerodynamics and lateral stiffness.
Factor ONE is offered with Zero and Offset seatposts, with the aerodynamic profile allowing for easy Di2 battery internal installation. 1-bolt saddle clamp for easy setup, available for carbon and metal saddle rails (7×9 or 7×7 rails).
The continuous downtube-to-chainstay structure of the ONE frame provides an unparalleled stiffness and power transfer, with minimum energy loss and maximum drivetrain performance. The use of a wide BBright bottombracket together with the Twin-Vane Evo downtube and tall chainstays make for a direct propulsion with every pedal stroke, while the CeramicSpeed equipped bearings keep the moving smooth and weatherproof.
Whether it is the ONE or the ONE Disc, each frame and fork has been designed specifically to excel at the highest level.
For the ONE, the rim brakes use the Direct Mount standard, optimized for braking performance without vibrations. The wide stance seatstays keep the rear caliper shielded from the wind.
The ONE Disc uses Flat Mount standard, with recessed caliper hardware mounts for small aerodynamic gains and cleaner looks. The bolt-on Factor 12mm thru-axles keep the whole system tidy and away from the wind.
Black Inc Fifty Disc
The versatile, all-rounder that is the first choice for most race conditions.
Whether you are sprinting, attacking or climbing, the Black Fifty is the go-to-wheel for most conditions. The Fifty is optimal for everything except for the steepest climbs and the windiest of days. All our professional teams choose this model when they need a wheel that can do exceptionally well on the flat stages, that is also light enough to tackle the high mountain passes.
Our proprietary wide rim profile pierces through the air making it far more aerodynamic than narrower rim profiles. Our manufacturing process ensures that the Fifty has the most amount of possible compliance while being extremely laterally rigid. The Fifty is much faster than most other brand’s deeper section rims. This has been validated through in-house CFD optimization and confirmed in the real world through our collaboration with our pro teams and ex professional test pilots such as David Millar, Ryder Hesjedal and Baden Cooke.
With its unique rim profile, hand built with quality Sapim aero variable thickness spokes and alloy nipples, the Black Fifty is more aerodynamic, durable, comfortable and stable than any other aero wheel on the market.

Delivery of Bikes
We ship all our bikes free of charge within the United Kingdom (excl. Jersey and the Channel Islands at this time) and all our bikes come pre-assembled with just a few tweaks required (Please see our Bike Build Instruction page for details of assembly required).
All our bikes undergo a safety check before being re-boxed for shipping which can during busy periods take a little longer to complete so whilst we aim to ship all our bikes within two working days of the order please allow for additional time for this process.
All our consignments irrespective of the carrier require a signature upon delivery, deliveries are typically made between 08:00 and 18:00 so please bare this in mind when choosing a delivery address.
We do try when possible to reuse packaging from our own suppliers in order to send purchased items to our customers, we ask if the packaging is still in good condition after you've received your goods then please try to use it again or recycle if not possible.
