Why Steel

At Scarab love steel. This material has a long history in bike manufacturing and has been able to evolve into Modern Steel. It provides the perfect balance between ride quality, durability, and reasonable weight. Yes! Some of these are not the usual variables you measure the bike industry with… Ride Quality? You heard right!
Steel provides a unique feeling of the road. It smoothens out the harshness of the surface while transferring power in a unique slingshot-like way.

 The material itself sounds humble, but don’t get us wrong: the steels we use are far from basic.

We use the most advanced steels available for bike manufacturing, allowing us to keep the bike package perfectly balanced. you riding more.
