True to its name, Festka Scout goes further than any other gravel bike has done so far. If tarmac plays a minor part in your idea of gravel biking, the Scout is your mate. The frame is built on an extended wheelbase from higher volume tubes engineered to provide the right balance of high modulus fibre and mechanical damage resistance. Robust, yet light and nimble, it has what it takes to climb, descend and roll. It is highly responsive without being twitchy. The Scout's highly efficient transfer of power from the rider to the frame means that none of your power gets wasted and you'll need less effort to achieve your goal. Designed specifically for one-by drive trains to ensure an optimal chainline and streamline the shifting. The frame can be perfectly tailored to your 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.

Design options

Core doesn’t mean bore! This basic design scheme boldly shows our big pride - the amazing weave pattern of our unique carbon tubes. This is probably the most typical look of a Festka frame.


We believe your bike should reflect your personality. That's why we give you a virtually endless range of options to achieve this goal. 

R&D colour

If you like our Core & Spirit designs but have different colour preferences, no problem. We are happy to execute the pre-designed schemes in the colour of your choice.


Choose where you want to mount your bags, paniers and bottles and we will install the rivet nuts exactly where you need them. 


The bike is yours so put your name or nickname on it. And why not make it truly yours by adding a logo or a motto that motivates you or says something about your attitude.

Custom geometry

A frame that fits you perfectly will not only give you maximum riding comfort. It will look great, too, with the right length stem, correct seatpost exposure and no ugly spacers.
