Factor One aero bike gets an update to make it even faster

Factor bikes has updated its One aero bike, adopting features from the Slick time trial bike

The new One frame uses the Twin Vane Evo down tube design from the Slick TT bike. Factor says that it has used CFD as well as wind tunnel testing to prove the design’s aerodynamic efficiency. Further testing has been on the track and on the road.

Factor says that the Twin Vane Evo design also provides increased stiffness at the bottom bracket and headset, so that you get improved ride quality over other aero designs. Factor’s bottom bracket uses Cervélo’s BBright standard and the frame comes fitted with a CeramicSpeed BB bearing.
