Going beyond the limits. Above the tree line and below the snow line, life forms face extreme conditions, but it’s within this zone in the towering Andes that one can find the Páramo. A place where nature evolves at one of the fastest rates on Earth, a place of staggering diversity and stark, barren beauty. Coincidentally, it’s a place where few venture, perhaps because of the thinness of the air and absence of paved roads. Fifty percent of the world’s páramos are in Colombia. Inspired by a place where we tread lightly, appreciate greatly, and marvel at one of our most beloved places in Colombia, we’ve named our gravel bike after it: Paramo.

In a country where an estimated 10% of the roads are paved, the Paramo was born out of necessity rather than fashion. Giving the ability to navigate Colombia’s challenging terrain away from the pavement and with added comfort was the Scarab Paramo’s mission.
Little did we know that once built, it would take us to places of immense beauty, away from traffic only to leave us wanting more? We created a monster.
