Stefan Schmolke dedicates his life to cycling.
Already as a teen, Stefan Schmolke started being an active racer together with this brother Matthias. His sporting passion and interest in technical processes led him to his machine engineering studies at the department of the lightweight legend Hans Christian Smolik. His diploma thesis “New materials and the theory of a carbon racing bar” was the basis for the foundation of his company and the production of the first carbon racing bar in 1992. He deepened his knowledge in a full time job at EADS and let those skills have an influence on the optimization of his products.
This constant optimization has been keeping Schmolke carbon bike parts at the top for over 20 years now. Their carbon bars and seat posts for mountain bikes and road cycles are probably the best components on the market. Schmolke carbon components are being produced in Konstanz/Germany.
