The Schmolke Carbon Story – Handmade in Germany

by Stefan Schmolke since 1992

As a young lad Stefan Schmolke, together with his brother Matthias, started racing. His passion for the sport and the technical interest in lightweight bicycle parts it spawned made him study mechanical engineering. His thesis was done under the supervision of Hans Christian Smolik, Germany’s godfather of ultralight bikes and parts. In 1989, around the time he was about to graduate from university, he, together with his brother, opened a bike store, concentrating on high-end bicycle parts.
From that on he developed superlight carbon handlebars, carbon seatposts and carbon wheels. With all his passion for the detail he currently have the lightes carbon handlebar in the world.
