Factor SLICK - Driven by Obsession
Obsession for speed. Obsession for the highest performance. Obsession for all-round adjustability. The Factor SLICK was Driven by Obsession. From the re-engineered Twin Vane Evo downtube to the wider profile in the seat stays, the obsession is in the detail to create the fastest and most technically advanced time trial bike.
Since launching the original Vis Vires and the Factor ONE, the team at Factor have been obsessively studying, modifying and enhancing the frame structure in search of the lowest aerodynamic drag and the highest stiffness possible. The result? The Factor SLICK cuts straight through the wind, while also providing impressive power transfer and handling.
The Twin Vane Evo downtube has been optimised through CFD design with a great deal of time being spent in the wind tunnel to perfect the downtube and seat tube, both of which showcase design and engineering that is 100% unique to Factor.
The Factor SLICK is the result of extensive aerodynamic design work, structural manufacturing optimisation for best power transfer, integration of components and a wide range of adjustability to fit the rider perfectly.
18 months of obsessive redevelopment, modifications and engineering have lead to the creation of the Factor SLICK time trial bike:
