Mummu Cycling are thrilled to announce that we have officially partnered with Factor Bikes. The exciting new collaboration has allowed us the opportunity to warmly welcome a fleet of the most advanced, lightweight road bikes to our tours, in the Factor O2.
Factor Bikes have over the years proven themselves to excel in innovative bicycle engineering, delivering some of the world’s most sought after, advanced machines that have won an applaudable run of professional cycling events since their establishment in 2007.
The O2 is designed to deliver a ‘high-performance ride capable of satisfying the demands of the fastest riders in the ProTour peloton’ (FACTOR). Its impeccable design, incredible transfer of power, paired with it’s feather-light frame and carefully selected components, ensure ‘the dream’ ride and absolute perfection when it comes to climbing, complemented flawlessly with it’s credible ability to murder a descent.
The inclusion of ‘Factor Bikes’ to Mummu Cycling tours will ensure our guests’ experience is amplified, as they take to the most iconic climbs across Europe, in line with the world’s most prestigious cycling events. The O2 will have them ‘dancing about the mountains and storming down descents’ on similar technology to some of the word’s best professional cyclists, including the French outfit; Ag2r-La Mondiale, led by key Tour de France contender, Romain Bardet.
The Factor O2 is powered by SRAM Force eTap AXS, delivering the ultimate ride experience with a combination of; the Force Flattop chain, Force crankset and the XG-1270 cassette, featuring optimal electronic shifting. Its incredible 12 speed range will ensure Mummu Cycling guests can use up to 24 gears, providing the dream platform to tackle some of Europe's most epic ascents with ease!
The Mummu Cycling Factor O2 fleet will be officially launched next January at the 2020 Santos Tour Down Under and from then will be available to ride on all tours throughout Europe. Painted a stealth grey with custom ‘Factor Yellow’ Mummu Cycling features, they’ll be difficult to miss; Fast and easy on the eye.
The exact model was recently revealed and is currently being ridden at the Tour de France by Mummu Cycling ambassadors, Stuart O’Grady and Nick Gates, alongside Managing Director, Marcel Berger. From there, it will be all-go for January!
