Prague, Czech Republic, 1 February 2022 – FESTKA, the Czech manufacturer of high-end carbon bike frames, saw a further increase of demand in 2021. One of the marketing tools driving this success are the company’s popular social media profiles. Instagram in particular where Festka not only presents its products but also gives its followers a chance to look behind the scenes, learn about its international re-sellers and meet its ambassadors. Second year running, Festka published in the last ten days of 2021 a TOP 10 of its Instagram posts of the year to date based on the public’s response. Take a look at the ten most popular Festkas with comments from the brand’s co-founder Michael Moureček.

For the users, the following bicycles are a step above the competition!
#10 – SCOUT MUMMY
Festka Scout was launched in 2021 as our second gravel model. This build for a Czech female cyclist who lives in Switzerland shows it in the Mummy design scheme. It is the second Festka for this keen sportswoman who rides one of her bikes every day.
#9 – SCOUT COPPER
Festka Scout was designed with rougher terrains and bikepacking in mind. This particular build is special due to its seldom seen groupset – a hydraulic operated system from the Spanish manufacturer Rotor.
#8 – SCALATORE SPIRIT 3 (2021)
Scalatore is our best-selling model. Shown here in one of the Spirit design schemes it proves that there is, indeed, beauty in simplicity.
#7 – SCALATORE CORE R&D
This bicycle may look fairly inconspicuous, but first impressions may be deceiving. You would be hard pushed to put together a finer collection of bike components. The price tag reflects that.
#6 – Pepovo kolo (Pep’s bike)
A labour of love bike belonging to one of Festka’s longest serving employees – the frame builder Josef Kabeš. A weight weenie extraordinaire, he went to great lengths to make his bike as light as possible. The bike is full of special details including a handmade saddle and handlebar/stem combo.
#5 – Doppler Spirit 4 (2021)
Festka Doppler marries two materials in a unique way – carbon and titanium. The carbon parts of this frame are painted in the Chameleon Eclipse paint which does exactly what it says on the can. The resulting look is striking and elegant at the same time.
#4 – SCOUT Ondrash & Kasparek
You won’t find many gravel bikes in such elaborate design schemes. This Festka Scout has taken a dip in the colour tanks of the artistic tandem Ondrash & Kašpárek.
#3 – Doppler inspired by Felipe Pantone
Another Doppler, this time a very special custom design created for one of our US dealers. Taking inspiration from the work of the Argentinian artist Felipe Pantone it combines two decorative techniques – painting and anodization. A very unique piece.
The Rover, launched over three years ago, was our first gravel model. This special design scheme based on the livery of Rally Group B 1986 Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2 was made for a Finnish client who created the whole concept himself, including several witty redesigns of the original sponsors’ logos.
Our most popular bike on Instagram in 2021 was the product of a colab with the artist duo Ondrash & Kašpárek who applied their unique paint dipping technique to not only the frame but the fork, saddle and stem, too. We selected a rim brake frame for the project believing it will suit the design better than the currently ubiquitous discs.
