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. It easily builds to the UCI limit of 6.8kg, equipped with a power meter and mid-depth aero Black Inc FORTY FIVE wheels.
Finally, here is an aerodynamic race bike with no weight penalty. Few rides or race routes are exclusively mountainous or flat roads so, naturally, you want it all: speed and lightness. The OSTRO is the ‘everything’ bike, making you fast whatever the terrain.
The OSTRO is an aero race bike that’s ready for Paris-Roubaix. It’s a ground-breaker on the cobbles, whereas usually it’s the cobbles that break riders. Why be aero for Roubaix? Simple. It’s a 260km race that averages around 45kph and ends with a sprint in a velodrome. Any energy saved can make the difference to victory, and over that distance at that speed you can save a lot of energy. What’s more, the same applies to every single ride that you do.
The OSTRO achieves its remarkably smooth ride in three key ways: tyre clearance, ultra-thin seatstays, and carbon fibre layup.
