ENVE athlete Alexey Vermeulen has built up a cross country stunner from Factor, the recently-released Lando HT. Components were chosen to make the bike as quick as possible, balancing weight, strength, and grip to make for the ultimate XC marathon machine.
Alexey broke it in at the Sea Otter Classic, racing the 80k MTB Marathon to a top-10 finish. The weight came in just under 20 lbs.
Alexey put together a build walkthrough that shows how much goes into assembling a complete parts list and frame. Watch until the end for a furry surprise.
