FOR DECADES, ROB GITELIS DEVELOPED AND BUILT THE WORLD'S WINNINGEST ROAD BIKES IN HIS FACTORY FOR OTHER BRANDS. NOW ROB IS PRODUCING THE WORLD'S TOP PERFORMANCE ROAD BIKES UNDER THE FACTOR BRAND. DISCOVER THE WORK OF A MASTER.
Born in the labs of Aston-Martin, FACTOR is a world leader in aerodynamic design and applications.
Cutting Edge Manufacturing
Rob Gitelis, FACTOR Owner and CEO has spent decades using the world's most advanced composite materials.
Rider Centric Design
Built by riders, every FACTOR bike is designed with a rider-centric approach to ensure maximum comfort and safety.
FACTOR began as a leading engineering firm working with Ferrari, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Maserati and many F1, Moto GP, and WRC teams.
In 2012, FACTOR launched its first bike in collaboration with Aston-Martin. It was years ahead of its time. Since then, FACTOR remains an innovation leader. Unlike nearly all other brands, FACTOR is making its own bike in its own factory.
Rob Gitelis, FACTOR's owner and CEO spent decades designing and producing the world's winningest bikes under different brand names in his factory. Now all of these decades of R&D are in every FACTOR.
cutting edge engineering meets controlled manufacturing
THE OSTRO IN FOCUS
The FACTOR Ostro set a milestone in race bike design. This ultra-lightweight aero-bike is made to completely shatter the boundaries between aero and climbing bikes. The time you had to choose between the two is over. With its race geometry, the Ostro is designed to carry the world's finest athletes to the top step of podiums at the Tour De France and the Giro D'Italia.
The Ostro is available with SRAM AXS wide range gearing, making it at-home at the world's toughest sprints and steepest climbs.
Full cable integration means your components are better protected, and aero-drag is reduced. The Black Inc. cockpit is an ergonomic marvel.
VAM is FACTOR's designation for bikes made using top spec carbon fiber weaving and FACTOR's proprietary ultra high pressure molding process.
CONTROLLED MANUFACTURING PROCESS
Where 99% of road bikes are being produced for the brands through different OEM manufacturers of varying quality, FACTOR is different. FACTOR is the world's only producer of high-end lightweight aero road bikes to make its bikes in its own factory. This provides FACTOR with total control over quality, employment ethics, and R&D implementation.
You can buy a more expensive bike, but you can't buy a better bike. Now that's an incredible value proposition.
"Factor’s new Ostro VAM is unquestionably a modern all-rounder. With its generous tyre clearance, unmistakable aero design, and a respectable weight, it really does serve as the well-mannered aero road bike that most speed enthusiasts should be on."

FACTOR 02 VAM
"Owing to the engineered compliance, as well as increased stiffness in the bottom bracket, the O2 VAM’s ride characteristics certainly classify it as something more than just a climber’s delight."
- Road Bike Action
"The Factor LS is a fast, no-holds-barred gravel racer - rich in feel, feedback and outright speed. Using its road bike-manufacturing know-how, Factor's first attempt at a dedicated gravel bike is truly impressive."
