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, we’re able to optimisestructural design while using the absolute minimum material possible, all without loss of stiffness or ride quality.
VAM is manufactured with a completely new method of carbon compaction. Pressurization greater than normal allows us to wring excessive resin from our base material, therefore making the carbon stronger, lighter and more efficient.
An optimized and strategic layup of mixed modulus carbon helps further define VAM’S handling characteristics
