Factor ViSTA; the ultimate all-road endurance machine. Atypical of the breed, ViSTA was designed and engineered to ride longer and faster, pairing discovery on any road surface with performance. Developed for those who roam as much as race, ViSTA unlocks roads less traveled, rendering possible what was once considered inaccessible.ViSTA signature all-road geometry is purpose-built with excellent handling traits to keep you in control, wherever you ride it – and you can ride it just about anywhere.The Factor ViSTA; the heart of a thoroughbred with the soul of a mudder.

Built to go further, faster.
With exhaustive development and testing of the ViSTA’s carbon layup, Factor’s engineers designed carbon layups optimised to mitigate shock and enhance off-road vibration absorption.
To ensure a smooth and stable ride, the specifically optimised seatstays, along with the upper portion of the downtube and fork legs, contribute to comfortable and controlled riding over long distances.
Maintaining Factor’s characteristic torsional BB stiffness, the ViSTA features our continuous downtube-to-chainstay “power-drive” construction. The ViSTA uses it’s torsionally stiff headtube-downtube junction along with its OTIS AR external fork and barstem to provide excellent front wheel tracking and cornering precision for confidence-inspiring descending.
With geometry deliberately built around 30 to 35mm tyre sizes, ViSTA’S handling characteristics lack the compromises associated with accommodating larger tyre sizes.
The balanced combination of the stack and reach with the OTIS-AR barstem combined with ViSTA’s all-road, size-specific carbon layup puts the rider in the optimal position to race, further and longer.
Internal cable routing remains hidden from the shifters to the derailleurs, thanks to the OTIS headset system. Factor’s legendary carbon manufacturing expertise is evident where it’s not easily seen; internally routed cables benefit from inner tube surfaces rendered clean and smooth by the painstaking production process.
Detailed Design for All-Roading
The flat-back ViSTA AR seat post profile offers enhanced compliance compared to a round seat post, while the elaborated long fiber carbon layup avoids bobbing under power.
Power Drive Drivetrain
The continuous downtube-to-chainstays structure provides minimum energy loss and maximum drivetrain efficiency. A BBright bottom bracket shell and asymmetric wide downtube deliver torsional stiffness while allowing plenty of tyre clearance.
The seat stays are designed to absorb the irregularities of the road. The thin section and upper curvature of the seat stays, as well as the fine-tuned carbon layup, soak up the small bumps and cracks to increase tyre traction and control.
