Robust & Durable
Built from bigger volume tubes containing a larger proportion of high modulus carbon fibre, engineered to provide the right balance of stiffness and mechanical damage resistance. The bike feels incredibly robust, yet light and nimble.
Built for off-road
We gave the Scout a slightly longer wheelbase and a new fork with adjustable trail for added fluidity on rougher surfaces. The bike descends with calm and confidence at any speed the rider is comfortable with.
Performance has always been high on our priority list. With the Scout we put our focus on making the bike highly responsive without being twitchy. And it's not just about speed. Efficient transfer of power from the rider to the frame means that your power doesn't get wasted and you'll need less effort to achieve your goal.
Geared for Perfection
The Scout is designed specifically for one-by drive trains. Riding on highly variable terrains requires fast uncomplicated shifting so it's better if you have only one shifter to worry about. The single chainring scenario enabled us to achieve the optimal chainline.
Custom geometry and graphic design is something the Scout shares with all other Festka frames. The added bonus here is that the frame can be perfectly tailored to the owner's bikepacking needs and ambitions. The possibilities range from the number/positioning of rivet nuts for bags and racks to the ideal toptube sloping angle to fit a TT bag. Advanced options such as integrating dynamos and cables for lights as well as many other special challenges are possible and welcome.

FESTKA’S CARBON FIBER TECHNOLOGY
Carbon fibre composite tubes are the core building material of every Festka frame. Produced to the technological standards of the aircraft industry, these tubes bring Festka bicycles into close kinship with modern jets. Every tube is made of one continuous fibre of carbon filament, eliminating air bubbles, seams and joined fibers. The CNC automated axial fibre laying (AFL) machine technology ensures unparalleled quality of every tube produced. The possibility to weave the tubes of individual fibers gives us nearly unlimited engineered design options and allows us to optimize the tubes to virtually any specifications.
Festka was founded in Prague, Czech Republic by a few cycling racers and enthusiasts in 2010 and has earned the reputation as one of the most aesthetically jaw dropping and technologically advanced bicycle brands in the world. Festka produces carbon fiber and titanium road, track and gravel bikes that are fully customizable and available in extremely limited quantities. Festka constantly aims to push the boundaries of design, and more often than not produces one-of-a-kind dream bikes that will turn heads for miles.
DELIVERY AND LEAD TIME
FESTKA Bicycles are truly one-of-a-kind. Each FESTKA is built specifically for the rider. Your FESTKA will typically be delivered 6 - 8 months after your order is placed, however, due to overwhelming demand, it is possible that your FESTKA bicycle may ship over 6 months after placing your order.
