Despite being a size 56 frame, Chérel's Factor O2 weighs just 6.81kg – a mere 100g above the UCI weight limit – and is the same build that Romain Bardet rode to third place at last year's Tour de France.
The lightweight machine is paired with finishing kit from Black Inc, including handlebars, stem, bar tape and seat post.
Wheels from Mavic and pedals from Look give the French team's bike a taste of their home country, while Continental and Fizik provide the tyres and saddle respectively.
Along with Bahrain-Merida, AG2R La Mondiale are equipped with cranksets from power meter specialists SRM.
AG2R's SRM Origin crankset is the only component remaining in the WorldTour peloton that is still utilising Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 series components in the form of chainrings. Bahrain-Merida have paired their cranksets with the updated Dura-Ace R9100 series chainrings.
The rest of the build does come in the form of Shimano's latest Dura-Ace R9100 series groupset however, and a neat number plate holder from K-Edge completes Chérel's build.
