The OSTRO VAM is an aero disc-brake frame which weighs just 830g (painted, size 54, Flicker design). We have used the very best materials to reach such a low weight, laying up the ultimate carbon materials perfectly to ensure low weight, responsive ride, and durability. It can easily be built up to below the UCI 6.8kg weight limit, which is unique among aero frames. That means that the aero advantages come without the usual weight penalty. Few rides or race routes are exclusively mountainous or flat roads so, naturally, you want it all: speed and lightweight. The OSTRO is the everything bike, making you fast whatever the terrain.
As an aero racing bike that has proved itself on the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix, the OSTRO VAM will also be ideal for your roughest, longest roads. Its remarkably smooth ride is thanks to several factors. First the carbon fiber choice and layup combine to achieve a high level of frame compliance without sacrificing any of the power transfer efficiency. At the rear, the ViSTA-style pencil seat stays are designed to absorb road noise and cushion bumps. And the ability to fit up to 32mm wide tires only enhances the OSTRO’s comfort-oriented design features
You can make a bike as light and aero as you like, but if you get the fit wrong, you’re not going to be enjoying your rides. To feel comfortable and have confidence in your handling, it’s essential to match your style to the right geometry. Like the O2 and O2 VAM, the OSTRO VAM is a pure racing bike intended to get the rider into an aggressive stance, and consequently they all share very similar geometries throughout the sizes. Geometry standardization makes it easier for our pros to switch between bikes during races, and it will help you stick to your comfort zone for your most important events.
