Chiru Ultra Brigade

Ultra-endurance DNA !


Who are the members of the Chiru Ultra Brigade?

The chiru Brigade brings together a handful of top-level amateur athletes, all of them ultra-cycling enthusiasts.
They take part in races and bike-packing events all year round, all over the world.
For them, two-wheeling is a way of life, whether on their own, with their family or as part of a group.
They recharge their batteries and find fulfillment by riding and surpassing themselves.
What do they have in common?
A taste for freedom and immersion in nature.

What is the mission of the members of the Chiru Ultra Brigade?

Live their passion to the full, have fun on two wheels and take part in the biggest ultra-endurance events.
Share their experiences with us!
They’re the ones who test our equipment and contribute their feedback to the ongoing optimization of our products.
They tell their stories on social networks and inspire through their blogs.
They are the embodiment of Chiru’s raison d’être.
Who better to talk about a Chiru than these extreme users?

Manu, cycling is his life!
A bike mechanic, he travels by two-wheeler and enjoys the outdoors as much as possible with his wife and two boys (usually by bike :-).

This native of Aix-en-Provence, a site manager in the green spaces sector, needs to be out in nature… and to continually push back his limits.

Kim Raeymaekers

When he’s not riding a Chiru, Kim is a freelance painter, a job that leaves him less time than he’d like for adventure, but enough to rack up an impressive list of achievements!

Pierre-Arnaud Le Magnan

Pierre-Arnaud is the founder of Chiru.
An adventurer and engineer, he collects adventure raids, ultra races and bikepacking adventures.
It was this passion that led him to Asia, where he finally settled and now runs two companies: Chiru Bikes and CEC Components (design and manufacture of spare parts).

Christophe Dijkmans

What could be more logical when you’re a geographer than to want to survey and contemplate all the earth’s diversity ?
