Factor Bikes was conceived from a commitment to innovation, speed, and performance through advanced engineering; their soul lives in the union of technology and integration, while their heritage stems come from advanced motorsport and aviation.

Factor first entered into the cycling world in 2009 with the revolutionary FACTOR001: its unique take on the road racing bicycle was a marvel as much for its beauty as its unique sophistication. It was years ahead of its time. As we’ve continued to grow and evolve, our core commitment hasn’t wavered: our engineering team continually pushes the envelope of what is possible.

Early the following year, Factor's engineering team begins to develop their next generation of frames: the ONE, ONE-S, and the O2. While they have worked closely with pro riders in the past, they felt the changes required a more critical, race-proven, eye. Baden was a top professional for 14 years, an Olympian, winning over 50 races. In 2003 Baden sprinted his way to a stage win and the overall Green jersey in the Tour de France.

Mastermind Bicycle Studio is proud to be the Exclusive distributor of India for Factor bikes.

THE FACTOR OSTRO VAM : A MASTER OF ALL TRADES.

PENCIL STAY SEATSTAY

At the rear, pencil thin seat stays are designed to absorb road noise and cushion bumps. Furthermore, they meet the seat tube at a dropped angle which encourages the seat tube and seatpost to cantilever around the seat cluster to create an effective amount of controlled travel at the saddle.

WIDE STANCE FORK

The new wide stance fork features Factor's highly innovative Reversing Flow Energizing Channel. Both the channel and the fork’s wide stance address the aerodynamic challenge of incoming airflow meeting the ‘reversing flow’ of air carried by the wheel and tyre moving forwards through the fork

INTEGRATED BARSTEAM

The one-piece, aerodynamic Black Inc Barstem reduces drag by meeting clean incoming airflow with a clean shape. A 125mm drop and 80mm reach offer the perfect fit for all riding positions. 100% carbon, zero inserts.

ELECTRONIC SHIFTING ONLY

In line with customer demand and enabling aero drag and weight savings, the OSTRO is built exclusively for electronic shifting groupsets.

CERAMICSPEED BOTTOM BRACKET

Used for the first time in a Factor, the CeramicSpeed threaded T47 standard ensures a secure fit and easy maintenance. Ceramicspeed Bottom Bracket also ensures smooth rolling and also leads to the increase of power transfer.

FULL INTEGRATION

Fully internal cabling brings further gains and Factor has achieved this while maintaining a 1β…›” top headset bearing for optimized frontal area, whereas internal cabling gives out a premium look on your bicycle.

SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT

The OSTRO is an aero disc-brake frame which weighs just 780g (painted, size 54, Flicker design). For using the very best materials and reaching such a low weight for its class, the OSTRO carries Factor’s VAM designation. And you can build up your bike upto the lightweight of 6.8 kg.

COMFORT

Factor Osrtro Vam is best in its comfort because of its three keyways: tyre clearance, ultra-thin seatstays, and carbon fibre layup.

100% CARBON LAYUP

Factor has renowned expertise in carbon fibre. Manufactured in their own facility, they are able to iterate almost endlessly during the R&D phase of any project. For the OSTRO, the carbon layup was continuously refined in order to achieve a high level of frame compliance without sacrificing any of the power transfer efficiency.

ABOUT FACTOR OSTRO VAM.

Every element of the OSTRO is optimised for aerodynamics. The mid-chord aero profile tube shapes, the wide stance fork featuring our pioneering Reversing Flow Energising Channel, and the aero cockpit with fully integrated cabling. The net result is a superlight bike that is close to the aero performance of the ONE and ready to blitz the fastest road races.

The tube profiles are derived from NACA (National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics, the godfathers of aero) shapes, oriented along the waterline (horizontal) in line with airflow and optimised for ride quality and aero-to-weight balance by truncating the aero section aggressively.

In designing the OSTRO, Factor considered every aspect of the frame and applied the optimum aero profile, with particular regard to the transitions between frame sections (eg down tube to seat tube, fork and head tube to down tube) and to performance across a full range of effective wind angles.
