Factor Bikes was conceived from a commitment to innovation, speed, and performance through advanced engineering; their soul lives in the union of technology and integration, while their heritage stems come from advanced motorsport and aviation.
Factor first entered into the cycling world in 2009 with the revolutionary FACTOR001: its unique take on the road racing bicycle was a marvel as much for its beauty as its unique sophistication. It was years ahead of its time. As we’ve continued to grow and evolve, our core commitment hasn’t wavered: our engineering team continually pushes the envelope of what is possible.
Early the following year, Factor's engineering team begins to develop their next generation of frames: the ONE, ONE-S, and the O2. While they have worked closely with pro riders in the past, they felt the changes required a more critical, race-proven, eye. Baden was a top professional for 14 years, an Olympian, winning over 50 races. In 2003 Baden sprinted his way to a stage win and the overall Green jersey in the Tour de France.
