What type of riding?
Mountainous road riding and racing, whether in the WorldTour or the Étape du Tour, and long rides where its comfort shines regardless of how hilly the route is.
Who is it for?
Riders looking for a superlight bike without compromise
The O2 VAM is no less than a watershed moment in bicycle design, a superlight bike that refuses to compromise. There have been very light bikes before, but invariably they have come with trade-offs, whether it’s to ride quality or the performance of weight-weenie components. The O2 VAM is engineered using technology never seen before in cycling – such as Textreme Nippon Graphite Pitch Fiber and Boron-infused frame tubes – to maintain the exceptional precision and power transfer that’s characteristic to all Factor Bikes.
Of course, while it was born for the mountains, its power transfer, crisp handling and compliant ride all mean that the O2 VAM will also deliver a fantastic experience in almost any road riding scenario.
