A new way to define bikes: Tire clearance has become one of the key factors that define a bike. At SCARAB we have been studying how the usable tire range defines the industry category that the bike belongs to. Or better said, what possibilities the bike offers to the rider. With Recent releases, we have now created a new version of Santa Rosa that merges modern looks of fully integrated cockpits, with a very broad tire range that allows us to optimize the bike for the rider’s needs. While climbing big mountains is highly revered in the grand races, it requires finding a rhythm. Riding in rolling hills might bring some of the hardest days on a bike.
Santa Rosa de Osos, in the Colombian highlands, is a unique riding playground within the Central Cordillera in Antioquia. The endless succession of rolling hills above 2500m that inspired the name of our bike, invites to charge up each hill with brute force one after the other. But don’t underestimate the repechos, they can crush you. They say success in cycling isn’t just about how strong you are, but also about how wisely you use your strength. Be on the hills, the local criterium or your favorite group ride, go about wisely on a Scarab Santa Rosa.
