High speed gravel racer
One thing that makes gravel such an exciting discipline is that there are so many different types of gravel styles and conditions a rider can face. The Factor LS meets all those challenges with the full intent to be the fastest, super capable gravel racing bike for pro and amateur cyclists alike. Made using lightweight carbon that can provide both comfort and durability, the LS represents your ticket to adventure.
When designing the LS, we were laser focused on keeping the frame lean, light, and responsive without being distracted by unnecessary add-ons. This is a bike that begs to be ridden at race speeds whether it’s rough terrain or smooth tarmac. Nimble and durable simultaneously, the Factor LS easily segues from city streets to forest trails and back again without missing a beat. The rigid chasse helps it climb like a dream and descend with confidence.
The perfectly balanced geometry combined with the frame’s stiffness translate into powerful accelerations. With shorter seat stays and refined steering trail, racers maintain the ability to react in a heartbeat to the often unpredictable dirt road conditions while still running tires with appropriate volume for fast riding on rough gravel. The LS is optimized around 40 to 43 mm tires and is compatible with both 1x and 2x electronic and mechanical shifting.
