The Chilled Squirrel team – scattered from Taipei to Cape town – is united under the banner of badass. We start with fat bikes – those all-terrain beasts that look like the franken-children of mountain bikes and monster trucks.

CHILLED SQUIRREL AMBASSADORS

Woolworths Media Guru - Curtis Elliott  


Curtis Elliott Woolworths Multi Media Guru E-bike Lover Chilled Squirrel Chilled Squirrel Test Rider, e-Biking Evangelist, Technical Consultant, Digital Media Producer.

Curtis grew up in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth, able to witness the upcoming 80’s fads of Rubik’s cubes, competitive skateboarding, street BMX, and the dawn of windsurfing.

A software developer by trade, and a creative at heart, Curtis has proven he has a natural talent for telling heartwarming stories through his use of video, photography and imagery.Having come from a very practical family where bicycles and motorbikes were tinkered on daily and tuned for performance, he quickly discovered his passion for speed and two wheels.He has always had a passion for the simplicity of bicycle design and the freedom that riding brings.
After surviving a near fatal crash and subsequent fireball while riding his motorbike up Suikerbossie, he decided to try the more leisurely sport of mountain biking, or so he thought; as the emergence of the e-bike was just around the corner.
Check out a short clip of Curtis stint at e-bike wheeling. He's the first person we know of in the world that can wheelie an electric fat bike.
 

Marguerite Black - Clinical Child Counsellor-Red Cross War Memorial Hospital 

Dandelion project Cape Town Marguerite E-bikes Chilled Squirrel Curtis’s fiancé, Marguerite, suffers from a degenerative neuro-muscular disorder that has her confined to a wheelchair.

Marguerite loved cycling too, but with her loss of balance and weaker muscles, she had to surrender to two wheels of a different configuration.

Curtis however, had the practical knowledge to get her cycling again, and together with Chilled Squirrel they retrofitted a three wheeler electric recumbent for her.

Now Marguerite can exercise her legs and keep up with Curtis on adventurous rides.

Marguerite noted an unexpected benefit to her electric recumbent :

"Wheelchairs have such a negative connotation, and people never quite know how to react to its occupants, but on my recumbent, people are more open to me, never question my abilities, and assume I am just out cycling on my funky three wheeler."

Bicycle CPT Cape Town Organization Loenie Mervis Electric Bikes For Leonie, environmentalist and founder of cycling advocacy organization Bicycle South , her e-bike represents the ultimate freedom of mobility.

What started off as a way to flatten Cape Town’s hills on her commute, has opened up a whole new landscape of possibilities - enabling her to travel further and faster - taking her far beyond the city limits on bike camping trips and off-road adventures.

Her Jack-of-all-trades ebike is a gravel-grinding SOMA Wolverine, kitted out with a 350W Chilled Squirrel hub motor and expandable battery solution (delivering 50- 100km a charge) – powerful enough for loaded touring and yet light enough for everyday commuting.

A versatile combination designed to see her though adventures great and small.
