The Factor LS is built for one purpose. Speed. The bike has been engineered from the ground up to perform well in intense, high-speed gravel races. The bike is the stiffest gravel bike Factor has build, it will accept a 42mm tire, is 1x and 2x electronic or mechanical drivetrain compatible, has hidden fender mounts, and a chain-suck protector.
Form Follows Function
Simply, race. Intentionally stripped of distracting features and excess materials, LS is meticulously crafted, solely focusing on the essence of gravel racing: speed and grit.
Perfectly balanced geometry and stiffness aids in powerful acceleration and climbing, diverging from traditional, pack-animal gravel bikes. LS offers the correct stiffness for aggressive riding to outperform the group without beating on the racer.
Conquer the Dirt
Unapologetically, the LS is built to conquer whether it’s soaring over the unforgiving Midwest rollers, prevailing through red clay, or overcoming the notorious Flint Hills.
The LS is optimized around 40 to 43 mm tires and is compatible with both 1x and 2x electronic and mechanical shifting.
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.
