WHAT Newly designed FACT carbon Secteur fork
with Zertz inserts.
WHY Decreases weight and absorbs road
vibration, while increasing strength
and stiffness of fork to create a quicker
HOW Carbon has a higher strength-to-weight
ratio than alloy, so the fork’s carbon blades
are stiffer and lighter weight, which creates
a more responsive, predictable front end.
Zertz inserts are integrated into the
mid-section of each leg to dissipate
vibrations from the road, helping to
reduce rider fatigue.
FACT Carbon Seatstays
WHAT Shaped FACT carbon seatstays with Zertz
damping inserts (Comp model only).
WHY To increase comfort and compliance, damp
road vibrations and shave weight, while
increasing rear-end torsional stiffness.
HOW Seatstays designed with slight “S” curve
allow more vertical flex without sacrificing
lateral stiffness, which is vital for ride
compliance and efficiency. Zertz inserts
are attached to the mid-section of each
stay to dissipate vibrations from the road,
helping to reduce rider fatigue.
AAT (Advanced Aluminum
WHAT An ultra efficient approach to aluminum
frame design that produces the optimal
combination of ride properties for the
experience at hand.
WHY Increases strength and improves stiffness
for the best all-around performance and
HOW Through methodical tube shaping and
enhanced weld techniques, our engineers
manipulate every aspect of the frame for
WHAT New 123mm shallow-drop alloy bar with
shorter 75mm reach.
WHY Provides a more natural position for
shoulders, neck and hands, helping
to reduce fatigue on longer rides.
HOW 123mm drop is shorter than most, meaning
quicker transitions from top to drops and,
consequently, less flex in the back and
neck. The reach has also been shortened
so riders can sit slightly more upright.
The top of the bar integrates flush with
the hoods, providing a level, ergonomic
interface with the hands.
