In March this year, Factor Bikes launched the second-generation model of its ever popular all round road bike, the O2.
The already strongly praised bike, first raced by professional team, AG2R La Mondiale in 2016, has now been even further bettered and redesigned to match the manufacturing methods of Factor’s climbing sensation, the O2 VAM, currently ridden by World Tour team, Israel Start-Up Nation. Now, by using higher pressurisation, excess resin is removed per model, ensuring that the carbon used is stronger, lighter and more efficient than ever before.
The development comes as no surprise as Factor hold a heritage that stems from advanced motorsport and aviation and are one of few bicycle manufacturers that own their own factory, allowing them the freedom to continually trial, innovate and strive for excellence through advanced engineering.
The redesigned O2 perfectly compliments Factor’s ability to consistently develop and improve their bikes as the sport continues to rapidly evolve.
What’s so special about the O2…
The O2 is the ultimate all-rounder…stiff, light, comfortable, efficient and incredibly reliable.
Its meticulous geometry and innovative design combine forces to ensure it excels in the mountains, without compromising its ability to conquer cobbles, glide around corners and storm down descents with absolute confidence.
To add, it’s stylish and very aesthetically pleasing. Some might just say, the dream ride.
If you’re looking to ride a premium, all-round bike that stands out from the crowd, the Factor O2 has your name on it.
- Wide-stance Seat Stays
- Optimized Tyre Clearance up to 30mm wide
- Integrated Carbon Headset
- Svelte Fork
- Direct mount rim brake compatible
- Sleek Internal Cable Routing

In 2019, Mummu Cycling proudly partnered with leading, innovative bicycle manufacturer, Factor Bikes.
The collaboration enabled us to work with the Factor team to create our own custom designed fleet of their most raved about all-round road bike, the Factor O2, allowing our guests the opportunity to maximise their cycling experience on tour by riding on world-class, cutting edge equipment.
For us, when deciding on the right bike for our fleet, the Factor O2 was the stand out obvious choice. Its versatility and ability to tackle all terrains on the road, in particular its potential to dance up a climb, ensured the perfect fit into our season that ranges from the Santos Tour Down Under, to the Spring Classics , into the mountains of the three Grand Tours and beyond…
Due to the unprecedented pause on 2020 overseas travel and tour plans, we are now selling our brand new fleet of 2020 o2’s that were set for their debut at this year’s Tour de France.
