Squirt arose in the cycling world with a group of off-road bicycle riders from South Africa who were committed to innovating the necessary bike products that are both friendly to their bikes and the environment they rode in. Through constant testing and a life time of cycling in the harshest conditions around the globe, our products are now independently testing and performing above and beyond the trails and roads we use them on.
