The exceptional build quality and meticulous engineering of our frames will give you thousands of miles of riding for years to come! Most of the frames in the Chiru range are highly customizable: as your riding changes, you can adapt your assembly choices and discover new sensations.
Innovating to create exceptional souvenirs
We design machines so that everyone can chart their own course and live life to the full!
The adrenalin of the descent, the sweat and determination of the effort, the fascination of a rising sun at the turn of a summit: we innovate for an exhilarating riding experience, and nothing is left to chance in the design of a Chiru.
Competitive at heart, Chiru Bike Packing is committed! Our bikes are machines for autonomous ultra-endurance. Whatever the distance, whatever the terrain, there’s a Chiru. Here’s an overview of our machines designed to travel the world.
The Chiru Kunlun has been designed for the 7th edition of the Transcontinental Race 2019 (TCR), a mythical race of over 4400km across the roads of Europe. This bicycle frame kit owes its name to the Kunlun Mountains, home to the Chiru, our totem antelope. It’s capable of swallowing up kilometers at full throttle with great efficiency. The atypical shape of its stays has been designed to reduce vibrations and filter the impact of poor road conditions. A guarantee of comfort for long days in the saddle.
Chiru Divider is THE brand’s best-selling titanium frame. Why? Because it adapts to all your mountain bike projects! Tire size, fork type, rear wheel position adjustment: you configure it to suit your expeditions. Divider tackles technical trails as well as fast dirt roads. It has proved its worth on the Trans Germany, the Highland trail and, more recently, the French Divide. Its geometry accommodates a full-frame bag and up to five water bottles. Mudguard and luggage rack attachments are also included. Pure Bike Packing DNA!
You’ll love the perfect geometry of this vagabond designed for self-sufficient ultra-distance riding. Suitable for 700c or 650B wheels, single or double chainring and 40 mm front suspension fork. It also allows you to attach soft luggage, a mudguard if you wish, and up to three water bottles to the frame. Everything is designed to optimize your equipment and make your two-wheeled adventure an incredible memory. The VAGUS AVENTURE version is more suited to rougher trails.
Designed and tested during the 2018 edition of Silk Road Mountain Race #1, the KEGETI is named after the first pass of this extreme race: the grueling Kegeti Pass at 3700m altitude in Kyrgyzstan. Emblematic of the Chiru range, the Kegeti is the ultimate machine for ultra-endurance cycling adventures. This drop-bar mountain bike features geometry designed for long-distance comfort and control on technical terrain. It can be fitted with a drop bar or MTB-style straight handlebar. KEGETI is also available with a PINION integrated gearbox for peace of mind (maintenance every 10,000km).
