Factor HANZŌ Frameset

The HANZŌ time trial bike pushes right up to the limits of UCI design regulations to make it among the fastest UCI-approved TT bikes in the world. Available to order as a frameset through Vires Velo.

£5,800.00

Quantity

  • Factor HANZŌ Frame & Fork
  • HANZŌ Aero Seatpost (Choice of zero or 27mm setback)
  • Complete Factor HANZŌ Cockpit with pads
  • CeramicSpeed BB & Headset
  • ‘Pizza Box’ with a range of accessories, including: Bartape, rear derailleur hanger, seatpost wedge and saddle clamps
  • You will also get a set of grommets, spacers, cable stops and covers to complete your build

It’s fashionable to say that bikes have become as aero as possible. The HANZŌ proves otherwise. When designing it, Factor capitalised on revised UCI rules with the goal of making the fastest purpose-built time trial bike in the world.

The design focused on reducing frontal area and selecting the perfect airfoils to ensure the bike performs optimally during real world racing conditions.

The incredibly narrow front profile begins with the external steerer fork, which perfectly integrates with the shape of the frame. The wide stance fork and seat stays are positioned to eliminate turbulence from reversed airflow coming off the tyres and to help smooth the flow from the rider’s legs. The elegant mono riser cockpit greatly simplifies and slims down the system for adjusting stack height, virtually eliminating any penalty for raising the pads.

WHEEL-FRAME INTERACTION
The fork and seat stays are set wide to avoid interaction with the reverse airflow coming off the rotating tyre

INTEGRATED FORK
The external steerer of the fork is shaped to extend the airfoil section of the headtube, significantly reducing drag

PENALTY-FREE PAD STACK
The narrow mono riser allows increased stack height with virtually no frontal area penalty

BASE BAR COMPATIBILITY
The base bar is designed to fit aftermarket extensions from leading suppliers such as Aerocoach and Wattshop

AERO BOTTLE INTEGRATION
The shape of the down tube is designed to accommodate an aero bottle with virtually zero drag penalty

HIDDEN CABLING
Brake lines and shifting wires are run completely internally to keep them out of the wind
