FACTOR LANDO XC

Fast full suspension XC racer

This lightweight full suspension 29er elbows its way to the front of the start line with a race-oriented geometry and suspension working together.

OVERVIEW

Fast and fun, the LANDO XC is the perfect mountain bike for Cape Epic aspirants, gravel crossovers, and roadies looking to get dirty.

Are you focused on fast? With the LANDO XC you can hit the trails knowing that your ride will offer laser-sharp handling and lightweight responsiveness. Comfort levels remain high even after hours in the saddle.

Design Features

Factor chose to design the LANDO XC with a vertical shock which offers huge benefits both for weight savings and rigidity.

It means that shock forces can be concentrated in the robust and already built-up bottom bracket region, thereby allowing for a svelte top tube that doesn’t require excessive carbon layering and weight. The design also ensures that the shock is completely isolated from any side loads, thus improving shock life and small bump sensitivity by removing binding.

Factor also designed a proprietary single pivot “faux-bar” linkage with rear travel of 115mm based on a 45mm stroke shock, and 100mm based on a 40mm stroke shock. The philosophy behind these kinematics keeps anti-squat in the 90% range to ensure the suspension will stay firm but active when you are pushing the watts.

BUILD MY LANDO

Factor's design features are never there just for show.

The LANDO XC’s split seat tube is not only a reference to the Twin Vane EVO split down tube found on Factor’s road bikes, but also allows for the use of monobox chainstay and low weight. Shared pivots directly mounted into the frames give a super stiff, well-aligned interface for the entire suspension to ride on.

The one-piece moulded carbon rocker is extremely stiff, preventing any side loading on the shock which dramatically extends its life span. The design also decreases static friction during use. The shared shock and lower swing arm pivot mounted as wide as possible ensure the simplest, lightest, and strongest use of the available frame material. To give the system a clean, svelte look, most fasteners are hidden or on the non-drivetrain side. The design references similar Factor blended designs found on their high-end road bikes.

Progressive Geometry & 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.

The 67° head tube angle combined with the 120mm travel fork allows you to settle into a rearward position to drive your speed on technical terrain. The 75.5° seat tube angle paired with the zero offset seat post enables you to enhance power output thanks to the position of your knee over the pedal spindle. The long top tube coupled with the relatively short stem keeps your centre of gravity over the rear end of the bike to ensure traction and control. The balanced rear centre length with trail ensures predictable handling.

Key Features

The single-piece left and right chainstay/seatstay assembly have been highly refined to minimise weight and maximise stiffness. By designing the entire unit as a single piece, we were able to improve bearing alignment, thereby reducing pivot bearing wear and tear.

A flat mount rear brake allows Factor 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.

LANDO 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, as well as native fitment for 24mm and DUB cranks (with the correct bottom bracket).

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.

Factor designed the LANDO to accommodate an in-frame water bottle cage with three down tube bosses to allow you to find the perfect placement. There are also bosses under the top tube for tool and accessory mounting as well as a Bento-style mount on the top tube for easy access to tools or nutrition on long marathon rides or races.

Don’t worry about dinging the immaculate carbon of the LANDO undercarriage thanks to the full length integrated down tube protector.

The integrated seat post clamp provides a lean look with clean lines for a standard 31.6 seat post. The road-inspired aesthetic compliments the compliant seatstay design that adds vertical flex to help contribute a progressiveness to the shock curve.

A mechanically attached anti-rotation guard unobtrusively sits underneath the down tube to ensure your frame is not damaged due to front end over-rotation in the event of a crash or some other unwanted mishap.

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.
