"Formula 1 engineering firm BERU is currently working on the The Factor001, a pedal-powered speedster that is being touted as the world’s most advanced bicycle. A marvel of modern engineering, the bike features an ultra-light carbon chassis, high-tech ceramic brakes, and a hard-wired system that stores biometric data such as heart and respiration rates.

The Factor001 comes equipped with ceramic brakes, a hydraulic braking system, and has an individually made-to-measure frame with a metallic finish. The bicycle also features a bevvy of high-tech systems including GPS, a radio transmitter, and a computer that can provide you with biometric and performance data after a ride.
