FACTOR have released a major update to the 02 series with the 02VAM - a sub-700g road frame.
The O2 VAM (Velocità Ascensionale Media) is available immediately and, according to the company, introduces class-leading levels of integration, versatility, and ride dynamics into an ultra-lightweight package.
'Manufacturing Breakthrough' Say Factor
Factor say that not only does the O2 VAM challenge riders’ expectations for what is possible in a sub-700g road frame, but it also represents a breakthrough in carbon bike manufacturing.
"This is due to a revolutionary method of carbon compression moulding," said a company rep. "FACTOR was able to remove a significant amount of weight from the carbon lay-up by applying ultra-high levels of pressure to expel any unnecessary resin, thereby enabling superior ply compaction. The result is a frame that is not only lighter but also stronger than the O2."
