Our Founder Members

Hoong Kwan
Hoong Kwan Founder Member

Not quite a seasoned racer but has dabbled in mountain bike racing, road racing at club level, he even got a podium or two. Hoong is probably better known as a strategy consultant and a go to market specialist. Cycling actually changed Hoong’s life, once very over weight as opposed to just a little overweight, like many others Hoong developed a passion for cycling and got caught up in the inevitable cycle of upgrading. However as a consumer, often customer experience was less than ideal. Hoong discovered the Kogel brand and saw an opportunity to participate in an industry he loves, but at the same time launching R2 was an opportunity to deliver to cyclists the best experience there is in upgrading your bike.

Chris Parker
Chris Parker Founder Member

Chris has a long history in cycling, starting in the late 80s when he found bikes and racing. He’s been addicted to pretty much everything to do with road cycling, cycling culture and European racing ever since. The early years saw him racing in Yorkshire & Lancashire, which at the time was the hotbed of the British road scene. Still racing today and seeking those marginal gains through amazing products. R Squared allows him to mix his passion for bikes with his head for business and his industry knowledge of loyalty, Customer Experience and Marketing. He says he could live without many things in life, but he couldn’t live without a bike & a perfect cup of coffee.
