Force, power, strength, might, influence – as the meaning of the Latin phrase Vis Vires, Factor is setting the stage for their first mass produced bike. Well, at least more than 77 bikes that is. As a subsidiary of bf1 systems, Factor bike set out to push the technology envelope using their vast experience in electronic and composites in the automotive, aerospace, and marine industries. Factor has already made a name for themselves with the radical F01, which was followed by the opulent, $38,000 special edition Aston Martin One-77.
According to John Bailey, the Managing Director of Factor Bikes, “The purpose of building the Vis Vires was to advance road bike technology and to bring our sophisticated engineering and precision technology to the production road bike market without the £25,000 price tag. The Vis Vires is competitive with other similarly equipped bikes and is ready to ride straight out of the box.
