The combination of various waxes with unique properties, make Squirt ideal for any cycling conditions.

à BLOC is more than just a beer. Our goal is to unite cyclists and celebrate the beauty of cycling. We believe that performances and challenging each other are some of life’s greatest experiences. Through them, friendships are forged, especially in cycling. We ride hard, but we wait on the top of the climb to return together. So we can share our stories in good company. And with a great beer!
