The Mule Deer Foundation (MDF) announced a partnership today with QuietKat, the Eagle, Colorado-based manufacturer of electric fat-tire mountain bikes. When MDF members purchase a QuietKat product, the company will give back 15 percent of the sale directly to the organization to support its conservation and education mission.
“As avid hunters, conservationists, and outdoorsmen, QuietKat is proud to support the Mule Deer Foundation’s efforts to increase the health and quality of our nation’s mule deer population,” said QuietKat CEO Jake Roach. “This partnership makes it an easy way for members to contribute a significant amount to the organization while riding a powerful and stealthy fat-tire electric bike in the field.”
The QuietKat line of heavy-duty products is geared toward those who want non-obtrusive access to the backwoods for hunting, fishing, and camping. The powerful electric bikes are engineered for off-road travel and they are both portable and stealthy. QuietKat bikes are powered by clean, green lithium-ion batteries making them nearly silent and powerful enough to navigate all types of riding landscapes. QuietKat vehicles also go beyond the woods, making them great for commuting and other utility applications.
To make the donation to MDF of 15 percent of the purchase price of a QuietKat bike, go to quietkat.com and use the coupon code “MDF15” at checkout. QuietKat products are also available for purchase directly from MDF at muledeer.org.
As added thanks, you will receive:
- Free shipping ($150 value)
- A FatKat accessory pack of fenders and pannier rack ($110 value)
- One-year MDF membership ($35 value)
- Buck Knife with MDF Logo ($35 value)
“This partnership with QuietKat provides MDF members with a new alternative for accessing the backcountry during their hunt. We appreciate their recognition of the important work that MDF does for conservation and mule deer hunters,” said Rob Weekes, MDF Director of Marketing and Development. “We hope our supporters take advantage of this great opportunity to purchase a QuietKat bike knowing that part of that purchase price will support our organization’s mission.”
