Dubbed the world’s most technologically advanced road bike, the Aston Martin X Factor Bikes One-77 Cycle is an exercise in both form and function. Not surprising, seeing as it's built by bf1systems, parts supplier for Formula One cars.
Packed with integrated motorsport-derived data-logging system, the One-77 Cycle was originally conceived as a training aid for serious athletes. Sensors are embedded within the rear wheel, which are then connected to the onboard computer, allowing the One-77 Cycle to monitor the rider’s performance. Meanwhile, the back-lit, high-contrast touch screen display delivers over 100 channels of data and is capable of storing 256GB of information,
The frame, seat tube, forks, brake callipers, handlebar, crankset and rims are fitted with ultra-light, high strength carbon fibre, while the addition of hydraulic disc brakes allows it to weather a wide range of conditions.
The design is a nifty mix of high-gloss lacquer and designer finishing, punctuated by generous dose of red: think bespoke leather trimming, stiched carbon fibre handlebars and ultra-bright LED headlights. Each bike is custom made to the buyer’s individual measurements.
As the name implies, and like its automotive counterpart, the groovy bike is available in a limited edition of 77 and will set you back £25,000. So buckle up fellas, for a guilt-free ride about town.
