Celebrating end-of-trail adventures on a QuietKat
Since Day 1 of our journey at QuietKat, we’ve always followed one, simple ethos: Build rugged e-bikes for far-out adventures.
But even we couldn’t imagine all the places QuietKat eBikes would go. Launched in the mountains of Colorado 10 years ago, our e-bikes have helped backcountry junkies, big game hunters, and tenacious anglers access some of the most remote places on earth.
This photo contest celebrates those who push the boundaries of a QuietKat; the ones who don’t let the elements or terrain deter the undertaking; the times of triumph, failure, and gritty moments in between.
From mountain vistas and muddy backwoods, to remote seascapes and top-of-the-world terrain, we want to see how you #TakeYourAdventuresFarther on your QuietKat.
Thank you for sharing your journey and helping us stand here, where our horizon once was.
HOW TO SUBMIT:
Post your photo(s) to Instagram and use hashtag #TakeYourAdventuresFarther and tag @QuietKat_ebike. Must be following @QuietKat-ebike to be eligible.
Overlanders know that the real adventure is somewhere beyond trail markers and cell service. Where the view favors the bold, getting lost - and unlost - is all part of the journey. Here’s your chance to share how remote you go to enjoy all that off-the-grid living has to offer.
QuietKat may have created the hunting electric bike, but you made it your own. Show us how you sneak into your spot, haul in mission-critical gear, or pack out your hard-earned trophy. No matter the terrain or conditions.
Because you seldom catch wall-hangers near town, this category honors the anglers pushing further upstream and out-of-bounds to find The Hot Spot. It’s time to brag. Showcase your die-hard methods of finding big fish from your QuietKat.
Even if you’re a 9-to-5 Weekend Warrior, you can still #TakeYourAdventuresFurther midweek. This category is for the commuters who refuse to settle for traffic jams and AM radio. Show us how you turn city streets and busy backroads into your playground.
BONUS CATEGORY: #RidingRoughCuts
We get it - sometimes the thrill of the ride keeps you from setting up a photoshoot. If you’re all-pedal, no-brakes, then send us the raw footage from your ride. Whether you're blazing trails, climbing hills, or just stopping to enjoy the view, share how you #TakeYourAdventuresFarther using the hashtag #RidingRoughCuts.
