Festka, the Czech manufacturer of high-end carbon frames, just announced their newly-designed Scout gravel frameset. The Scout was the brand’s first dedicated 1x gravel bike and this year, it got an overhaul, making it longer, slacker, with bigger tubes, and bigger tire clearance. The new model’s geometry is designed around an extended wheelbase whose scope can be tweaked further using the adjustable trail provided by the Columbus Futura Cross fork.
The new Scout frameset weighs in at 1000 grams, fits a 700×42 or 650x50mm tire and is offered in production or custom geometry, with a number of paint options. See the full spread at Festka.
