No one can attest to the global reach of the bicycle better than Hans Rey. As a professional cyclist he forever changed what many thought was possible on a bicycle. Following his World Championship mountain bike career, Hans took to filming documentaries of trips taken to the farthest corners of the earth. The Hans Rey Adventure Team uses extreme mountain biking skills to discover remote cultures and historical mysteries.
As these adventures have taken Hans across the continents, he has seen people in need of the freedom and reliability of the bicycle. Hans founded the non-profit charity Wheels4Life to reconnect with the places he has visited and to leave a lasting impact. What good is learning if you never apply the lesson?
Wheels4Life provides bicycles to people in developing nations. Often, something as simple as a bicycle transforms an individual by allowing them to hold a job or attend school. In the case of health care workers, a bicycle increases the range of care and an entire region benefits. Chris King is proud to support Hans Rey and Wheels4Life with a portion of proceeds from a new special edition component series developed around our renowned DreadSet™.
