What's Changed and Why?

Pursuing engineering perfection continually pushes us to ask, “How can we do even better?” Last year, challenging the status quo and ignoring constraints, Factor Bikes revealed the O2 VAM, an ultra-lightweight bike with unprecedented ride quality and responsiveness. Work began the next day to improve it even further.

INTEGRATED CABLING

True to the VAM, cables are hidden whilst maintaining lowest weight and stiffness goals.

CAREFULLY CONSIDERED

Standard size (1-⅛) upper headset bearing system to maintain aesthetic beauty and retain aero benefits.

STIFF CARBON LAYUP

Overall frame weight reduced by closing mechanical cable routing entry points whilst improving stiffness.

LIGHTER SEATPOST CLAMP

14g lighter than the previous system. Larger surface area allows for lighter seatpost reducing overall weight.

FACTOR O2 VAM

Lightwight Climbing Bike.

LIGHTWEIGHT

Optimized carbon layup and more specific carbon material choice to reduce weight and create a sub-7kg disc brake bike. Frame weight at 677g unpainted (54 Disc).

MAXIMUM STIFFNESS

Redesigned BB using a specific carbon layup to retain maximum stiffness and ride quality.

NEW FORK DESIGN

Brand new fork design with a D-shaped steerer, reinforced for impact strength. Split spacers allow for easy raising and lowering of the system to suit the rider.

TIRE CLEARANCE

Increased maximum tire clearance up to 30mm.

DIRECT-MOUNT

New direct-mount rear derailleur hanger stiffens the shifting system for Shimano, bringing the top of the rear derailleur hanger behind the axel entry path.

FULLY INTEGRATED

Fully-internal cable routing - the O2 VAM is now entirely integrated through the barstem with no cables showing and the upper bearing size unaltered, maintaining aesthetics and aerodynamicss.
