There is no longer a need to choose between lightweight and aerodynamic. The all-new FACTOR Ostro offers a super lightweight, aerodynamic and comfortable ride capable of achieving victory in any circumstance. 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. In terms of comfort, the Ostro incorporates wider tire clearance (up to 32c wide), ultra-thin seat stays and carbon fiber layup that dampens road vibrations that excels on pavement or cobblestones. The Ostro is your go-to choice for flying down 9W at blistering speeds and ascending Bear Mountain with supreme efficiency.
