Rennstahl Bikes - Noble High-End Bicycles Made of Steel

At Rennstahl, the name says it all. Because the steel wheels of the bike-obsessed perfectionists from Bavaria are consistently designed for tough racing or touring use. To this end, all Rennstahl bikes are manufactured exclusively from high-alloy and multiple-butted tubes using the TIG welding process. The results are beautifully shaped racing steel frames that offer you an optimal balance between durability, weight and stiffness. In addition, the frames are built by hand in the Garching factory, so that your new bike of the brand is a real one-off.

Rennstahl - Bikes for Life

Easy to machine by deformation, high tensile strength, corrosion-resistant and extremely durable: Rennstahl uses high-alloy steel for its bikes, which has convincing material properties. Assembly and welding work are done in the manufactory itself, which makes every Rennstahl gravel bike, MTB or e-bike a truly unique piece. 

Two tube sets are used: the Rennstahl 853 and the 931 series. The latter makes wall thicknesses of narrow 0.38 mm possible, which are nevertheless durable, strong and resistant. The 853 series is considered the flagship for steel bike frames. The seamless drawn steel is even harder and thus even stronger than comparable materials. Based on the robust steel frames Rennstahl builds bikes that always bring you safely to your destination, even under extreme loads.

Values that Define Everything at Rennstahl

For the minds behind the brand, bikes are an unrestricted passion that significantly defines life. One irrevocable factor in all considerations is that the frame for every Rennstahl bike is made of steel - and standardized off-the-shelf tube sets are not good enough for that: The tubes are designed in-house by Rennstahl and manufactured using molds developed in-house. In addition, they must withstand the manufacturer's own stringent quality testing before they are installed.

From design to testing to manufacturing, all processes are guided by innovative thinking. When a problem arises, they work tirelessly to come up with their own functional solution. This fits perfectly with the brand's commitment to the highest product quality. All components are made of premium materials that allow for flawless functionality as well as a long service life of Rennstahl bicycles.

The History of Rennstahl Bikes

After six years of building titanium frames and wheels under the name Falkenjagd, the Rennstahl brand was founded in 2013 as a subsidiary of A. & A. Kirschner Fahrradmanufaktur GbR. The new label introduced a steel-framed bicycle inspired by classic designs. In terms of equipment and material, however, it was state of the art and thus caused enthusiasm in industry circles. One thing was therefore immediately clear: the upcoming steel-frame bikes from the manufacture were to make history. 

In the years that followed, the brand earned an excellent reputation in the industry and won fans worldwide for the traditional material. The bikes exude impressive charm and are among the best available in the premium quality steel bike sector.
