If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on the Factor Vis Vires, now might be your first chance. The company recently announced that a first and limited edition run of 100 Vis Vires Dura Ace models will be offered on their newly available web store. Marking the first production run of Factor’s more traditional (if you can call it that) road bike, each bike will feature a special marking on the top tube denoting the official number as it came off the line along with a certificate to hang on your wall, or in your office.
The initial run of bikes will be offered in two build options, find out with what and how much after the break!
Offered in Team orange or Stealth black, each Vis Vires Dura Ace is mostly the same with a full Dura Ace Di2 group and carbon wheels. The $3200 difference? That would be the upgrade to the Factor Power Cranks (that Tyler goes into in depth here), a system that provides an amazing amount of feed back and data that can be used to hone in on training weaknesses.
If the $13,332.50 Vis Vires Dura Ace with Power Cranks is a little too pricey or you simply don’t need the the Power Cranks, essentially the same bike will be available with a Dura Ace crank for $10,665.83.
What are you getting for that money that is different from your average bike? The fork certainly comes to mind with its twin leg design and integrated stem with Garmin mount. Unlike the Factor F01 or F77, the Vis Vires relies on rim brakes for stopping power, with a set of integrated TRP TTV mini vs.
Vis Vires frames will be offered in 51, 54, 56, 58, and 61cm sizes with the stem length base on the size. Customers will have the ability to choose their needed crank length with Dura-Ace Di2 cranks offered in compact 50/34 or double 53/39 in 165mm, 170mm, 172.5mm, 175mm, 177.5mm or 180mm and Factor Power Cranks available only in double 53/39 and 170mm, 172.5mm or 175mm lengths.
Additionally, Factor states that buyers for the first 100 bikes will become a member of the “Factor 100 Club” and will be invited on an “extra special journey to perfect your ride.”
