Festka bikes

We’ve searched the whole world for the best brands to create our custom builds. So, we have selected four we love to work with all the time, two in Europe and two in the USA.

Festka is one of our European brand partners.

about festka

This esteemed brand is based in the beautiful Czech capital, Prague. We are honoured to be part of the Festka family. Personalised, impeccably finished designs are what make this brand special.

Since the company’s conception in 2010, Festka has used precision machines as much as possible, employing technology used in the aerospace industry. And when only hand crafted will do, they use the skills of top experts.

Festka understands that every rider is a little bit different. So, the brand’s unique components allow us at The Bike Tailor to build a highly individualised bicycle for every one of our clients. Their esteemed selection of partners includes the European Space Agency and its research centres, plus top manufacturing companies and technical education institutions.

Festka frames are made with round section tubes. This shape allows for the most effective construction and ensures a balance of comfort and rigidity in their bikes. The classic tubular frame is part of their identity, and it gives their frames a timeless look.

Every one of Festka’s designs is unique, just like every rider is unique. Some of their more daring designs, such as Pablo and Dazzle, have served as inspiration for other bike manufacturers. The painstaking skills of their master painters are unmatched.

FESTKA DOPPLER

The flexibility of titanium meets the lightweight strength of carbon. The fusion of these two materials gets the best out of both of them. Add an exclusive aesthetic and extraordinary craftsmanship and you have a bike frame that makes a bold statement and compliments its rider.

Every Doppler is an original, made for the individual. The brand’s strong belief is that real luxury must be highly personal.

Festka uses 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 only need filament-wound carbon, because of its weight to function ratio. The titanium top and bottom tubes, seat stays, and dropouts give Doppler elegance and comfort.

FESTKA SPECTRE

Many track racers choose the Spectre. When a track race relies on hundredths of seconds to decide the winner, a great relationship between a rider and their bike is paramount. As roads are not as smooth as the velodrome, your bike needs to be responsive and comfortable. They call this ‘FESTKA RACE DNA’. The Spectre is smooth enough to allow you to take a drink when you need to, yet strong enough to help close a gap or avoid a rough patch on the road.

the right racing machine

Every detail of this frame was designed with performance in mind. The carbon filament for Spectre’s tubes is laid by the most sophisticated machines in the world. Crucial components include the chain stays, made from ultra-high modulus 1K filament and laid at zero angle. This means the frame has an extremely strong flexibility, while the ‘farfalle’ design gives unique torsional strength.

FESTKA ROVER

If you want to have one bike for both tarmac and gravel cycling, the Rover is the one for you. Nimble, light, and fast, this bike handles flawlessly. Rover‘s main frame is comprised of tubes designed for Festka’s Spectre and Scalatore models. The chain stays are specific to this model, made to cope with extra pressure on rough surfaces.

Every tube is made of one continuous fibre of carbon filament, eliminating air bubbles, seams and joined fibres. This manufacturer’s Computer Numerical Control (CNC) automated Axial Fibre Laying (AFL) machine technology ensures consistently high quality. The tubes are weaved from individual fibres, giving this brand unlimited design options.
