FACTOR LANDO HT
The ultimate hardtail for fast times
The hardtail mountain bike of choice for discerning XC riders looking to maximise their speed and race times. Made from high-quality materials and a carbon fibre layup utilising different carbon types to optimise efficiency requirements, the LANDO HT offers exceptional stiffness-to-weight in a minimalist package.
Whether you want to rip along flowy trails, destroy your rivals between the tape, or feel the joy of a lightweight hardtail mountain bike, the Factor LANDO HT can set all your rides alight.
The LANDO HT provides the versatility to keep you fast from gravel grind to 24-hour MTB marathon.
SUSPENSION AND RIGID FORK OPTIONS
The LANDO HT has been designed to appeal to a wide range of XC and gravel-oriented riders. The 29-inch wheels and modern geometry combine to work seamlessly with both a 110mm travel front suspension and the all-new Black Inc Fully Rigid Fork. This built-in versatility significantly enhances the LANDO HT’s gravel applications while still keeping it well-centred in the XC racing world.
REAR VERTICAL COMPLIANCE
Thin seatstays connect lower down the seat tube to enhance vertical compliance, while their kinked design further improves this by introducing discontinuity into the system. The standard 31.6 seat post is extended to absorb more vibrations from the tail and provide additional support.
FLAT MOUNT REAR BRAKE
A flat mount rear brake allowed Factor us to mould the chainstay entirely out of carbon with no need to mould or bond in any alloy parts, resulting in significant weight savings and increased strength. This also facilitates the symmetrical seatstay configuration which keeps loads being transmitted from the rear wheel symmetrical, thereby improving shock alignment and reducing shock side load.
Black Inc Integration
The LANDO has been designed in unison with Black Inc components to complement ride quality and minimize weight.
Made from the best quality materials including a tremendously strong Ni-Cr axle, CeramicSpeed bearings and Sapim CX-Ray spokes, the Black Inc TWENTY SEVEN wheels are XC-specific with a modern focus for today’s technical race courses and exceptional riders. The one-piece barstem, tow-bolt seat post and computer mount with a hidden Go-Pro attachment round out the tailor-made suite of components.BUILD MY LANDO
Combining its modern geometry with the 2.4-inch tyre clearance, the LANDO HT will stand up to any loamy trail situation you may face on race day. With ample room to withstand mud build-up, the LANDO HT's utility extends well into 24-hour marathon races where trail conditions can change as the hours - and mud - continue to accumulate.
Leveraging our in-house carbon expertise, we have precisely shaped the LANDO HT's tube shapes to create a tuned ride with optimised performance characteristics. The wide down tube takes full advantage of the extra width afforded by the T47 85.5 BB system to maximise strength, while the top tube is wide and flat to allow for flex under very high loads such as landing a jump or experiencing a pronounced frontal impact.
The LANDO HT offers both internal and external options for cable routing. The integrated internal hose routing - with optional conventional routing - gives you the option of full internal cable routing if you choose to set up the LANDO HT with the Black Inc Fully Rigid Fork.
The LANDO offers both internal and external options for hydraulic brake hoses. Please note that internal routing with mechanical drivetrains is not possible. We offer internal dropper post routing as well as rear lockout.
Focusing on designing for speed, the LANDO HT shares numerous design features with Factor's fastest road bikes. From tube shaping to carbon layups, many of our most successful road bike developmental and design features are echoed on the LANDO HT.
Boost 148mm rear spacing ensures a proper chainline with excellent tyire clearance. The exceptionally wide spacing also works well with 30mm cranks.
Factor utilises the industry-leading T47 88.5 BB standard to increase maintenance convenience by offering the functionality of a threaded bottom bracket while still providing for the full width required to work with 1x Boost spacing and access to 30mm cranks.
Factor has invested in offering CeramicSpeed bearings as standard on the LANDO. The bottom bracket uses coated bearings thanks to their resistance to corrosion, their longevity and incredibly low friction. Similarly, the SLT Bearings in the headset require no maintenance and are practically indestructible. All CeramicSpeed bearings come with a lifetime warranty.
