O2 VAM

Factor O2 V.A.M


All-Round Road Bike

The new benchmark for ultralight performance and the ultimate expression of Factor’s design and manufacturing expertise. VAM (Velocita Ascensionale Media,) is the latest marvel to emerge from the Factor Carbon Lab™. Optimized structure design and carbon layup and specific material choices, depending on the frame area and shape, allows us to use the least material without loss of stiffness, efficiency or ride quality. VAM’s obsessively detailed fabrication technology and selection of materials allows Factor to meet the twin challenges of creating a chassis to attack when the grade points skyward, yet one capable of carving through corners with authority when the course heads back to the valley floor.

Widestance Seat Stays

Wide stance seat stays help with lateral stiffness in the rear triangle while keeping the seat stays thin for compliance and comfort.

Redesigned Seat Tube

Using Boron on the back of the seat tube allows for additional compliance without buckling.

Optimized Tyre Size

The O2 V.A.M. has a tyre clearance of up to 30mm wide (measured).

Seatpost Options

Factor VAM is offered with zero or 25mm offset seatpost, compatible with Di2 internal battery. One-bolt saddle clamp for easy setup, available for carbon and metal saddle rails (7×9 or 7×7 rails).

Integrated Carbon Headset

An integrated carbon headset top-cover, available in 5mm and 20mm, provides an elegant and clean appearance.

Brake Options

Both the rim and disc brake versions are compatible with mechanical and electronic drivetrains. The rim brake version now uses Direct-Mount standard, for increased power and easier adjustments.
