SOLANO FACTORY

When you see "Factory" on an Asama bike, this is not just a random name. This is the bikes the ASAMA factory team ride with. It features ASAMA's best frame building technology and performance for money equipment.

Solano Factory is a step in the true performance racing bike where aerodynamics, stiffness and power transfer are crucial.

We took our Solano frame to the next level:

- Lighter:  Optimized double butted downtube

- Stiffer: Oversize BB+ technology and Tapper Headtube for a better transfer of the driving torque to the frame.

- More comfortable: Optimized 2-1-1 design with bi direction pressed chainstay. Giving more vertical compliance et more lateral stiffness.

This highly responsive frame is equipped with the newest 2018 Shimano R2000 series groupset inspired by 105 group.

It comes with a full Carbon UD Aero fork.

The wheels due to their rotational mass are the key components on a road bike. The Solano Factory is for that matter equipped with superlight double wall mid height rims mounted on top quality bearing cartridges Novatec hubs. We specially use for this bike a 3x7, 2for1 ratio spoke lacing pattern which at the top of looking awesome, improve energy transfer, reduce the stress on the spokes and increase lateral rigidity.

Designed for riders that take their riding seriously. If you want to join a club, start long rides with the pack, high intensity training and get local KOM, these bikes are made for you. The position has been studied for performance. You will find them in the Road bike category. 

AL6T6: The aluminum alloy used in our frame is top quality imported grade, used by the most famous international brands. The durability of the material highly relies on a good heat treatment process. We believe that our in house equipment and experience with T6 treatment guaranty the best frame strength.

HYDROTUBE: Weight reduction and Strength gain at the same time. It's possible thanks to this technology. After mechanical simulation, we can define accurately which area need to be reinforced and which area can be made lighter. Thanks to Hydrotube we can optimize our frames by forming the frame tubes as simulated, adjusting point by point tube thickness and shapes.

FW TECH: This complex welding technic gives a smooth aerodynamic feel similar with carbon products. It also increases the strength of the weld by filling all the small porosity and angles seen on a traditional weld seam.

2-1-1: A good bicycle needs to be comfortable and efficient. For that, the frame needs to be vertically compliant (filter shocks) but stiff laterally. By increasing the length of the 2 seat stays and welding them far apart from each other directly on the top tube, we improve the vertical flex while increasing the lateral rigidity.

INTERNAL ROUTING: The brakes and/or derailleur cables are routed internally in the frame. It makes for a cleaner, smoother look, protect the cables from external factors such as water or dirt and avoid to get tangled during transportation or off road riding. Better look and better shifting and braking on the long term.

TAPPER HEADSET: The headset is the most important part of a frame in matter of safety. This area withstands directly the rider weight and the shocks from the road. By making it tapper we increase the stiffness greatly. The headset bearing is widened accordingly which improve their durability as well.

OVERSIZE BB+: Oversize BB+ not only increases the width of the bottom bracket but also adjust the frame shapes around it to connect smoothly and obtain an optimum lateral stiffness. That's a design normally seen on carbon high end bikes only.

SAFETY INSERT: The rear mesh hanger is designed separately from the frame. It acts as a fuse in case of accident protecting your frame integrity.
