How our wheels started to turn

It was clear from the beginning that ARC8 should not be the classic bike brand. We provide an alternative for people who are tired of riding an off-the-shelf bike by making custom bikes more affordable. As bike enthusiasts, not salespeople, we strive to make the bikes you and we want to ride. Everyone is different and everyone’s riding style is different, and so should their bikes. Configure your ARC8 the way you want it, or build it from a frame kit.

The focus of our brand is on the riders. Providing them with the best possible equipment for maximum performance and riding pleasure is our mission.

All of our frames and components are designed by BETA with one primary goal in mind: maximum benefit for the rider. This means we can provide you with reliable designs, lightweight frames and all the features you need, but no extra gimmicks for marketing purposes. Our component selection follows the same philosophy: each component is chosen to deliver the best performance.

The Story

ARC8’s two founders, Serafin Pazdera and Jonas Mueller, spent much of their youth together, as classmates, bike messengers, or while training to become snowboard instructors.

But then their paths diverged: Serafin turned to graphic design and web development, while Jonas studied mechanical engineering and developed frames for renowned bicycle brands. When Jonas decided to start his own business and asked Serafin if he could develop a website to promote his engineering services, it quickly became clear that they could achieve much more together. That was the beginning of ARC8.
