Fara, in cycling brand terms, is a relative newcomer. Founded in 2015, it is relatively unique in that it is a Scandinavian brand. The cycling industry tends to be focussed on a few nodes – the USA, Taiwan, Italy, Germany – so it’s certainly novel to see a brand come out of Norway, and not even Oslo either.
