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.

Applying Factor’s ethos of zero compromises, the O2 VAM is the result of the most substantial engineering breakthrough in carbon bike manufacturing in decades. Using new methods to defy modern carbon bike manufacturing convention, Factor is able to optimize structural design while using the absolute minimum material possible, all without loss of stiffness or ride quality. Until VAM, reduction in frame weight signified an equal decrease in ride quality. VAM forever alters this dynamic. Even as their lightest production bike to date, VAM is stiff and responsive under power, maintaining the superior ride and handling qualities justly regarded as the signature element of all Factor Bikes.

Factor Bikes sells system-integrated chassis, comprised of frame, fork, barstem, seatpost, bottom bracket, headset and a pizza box of components and accessories. Why a chassis? To control all the touch points a rider has with the road to ensure our renowned Factor ride quality.
