The Factor SLiCK is a time trial/triathlon bike drive by obsession. Obsession for speed; for boundary-pushing performance; for versatility and adjustability. Each element of the SLiCK, from the 51 Speedshop Aerobar to the Twin Vane EVO downtube, was intentionally included in the design because of Factor’s obsessive quest to create the fastest, most technically advanced aero bike available.
Beyond Speed: Aerodynamics, Integration & Adjustability
Factor’s design and engineering team studied, modified and enhanced the SLiCK’s frame structure in search of the lowest aerodynamic drag and the highest stiffness possible. Every subtle permutation and shape is a performance-driven result of extensive CFD and wind tunnel testing. This is then combined with real-world riding feedback from some of the best time-trialists and triathletes on the planet. The results? The SLiCK cuts straight through the wind, while delivering impressive power transfer and handling and aerodynamic performance without compromise.
The Perfect Fit
Teaming up with bike-fitting specialists 51 Speedshop, SLiCK’s aerobars provide all-round adjustability and total integration for reduced aero drag. Triathlon specific accessories come standard on the SLiCK, each integrated within the bike structure and designed for maximum convenience of use during training or racing. This includes the rear-mounted carbon StoraPak, top-tube threaded bosses, and BTA hydration mount, each addition included to provide a complete support solution for the performing triathlete.
51 Speedshop Mono-Riser Aerobar
Understanding the importance of the cyclist’s contact points. The 51 SPEEDSHOP Mono-Riser Aero Bar System is designed for the optimisation of biomechanical alignment, support, and aerodynamics.Designed for the rigors of the Tour de France and the Ironman World Championships, it uses the finest materials for each application, from the carbon fibre basebar and upper bridge, to 7000 series forged aluminum stem and tower base plate and stainless steel hardware.
