With Titanium where it looks best and carbon where it works best, DOPPLER sets a new benchmark by going against the flow.
Good looking and clever. That doesn‘t always go hand in hand. But there are exceptions and Festka Doppler is one of them.
Since we work with carbon and titanium it made sense to combine the two in one bicycle. We could have followed the tried and tested method of connecting carbon tubes via titanium brackets. However, those are heavier and harder to make than carbon ones so why not do it the other way round, save loads of dead weight and make the titanium shine?
We put titanium where it looks best and carbon where it works best. The tapered head tube, the bottom bracket, the chain stays and the seat tube simply ask for filament wound carbon due to its weight to function ratio, while the titanium top and bottom tubes, seat stays and dropouts give Doppler class and comfort.
Being our masterpiece model, Doppler can only be fitted with top of the range components. It comes with mechanical/caliper brake and electronic/disc brake Shimano Dura Ace groupsets, Mavic carbon wheels, Deda Superleggera cockpit and Selle Italia SLR Techno Flow saddle.
The anodized design inspired by Christian Doppler‘s wave circles is simply spot on but you can experiment with different colour combinations if you wish. And as with all our other models custom geometry is available for those who can‘t fit our 24 different standard setups.
“After years of riding cookie cutter carbon bikes, I transitioned exclusively to more noble materials: titanium and steel. Several years later, Michael convinced me to try the Doppler, with very solid arguments based on the weight advantage and stiffness but still loyal to the craftsmanship and comfort I highly appreciated. I must say he was right. My Doppler has not disappointed me in any sense.”
