BILT Gear Review

Cycle Gear LogoI cannot count the number of hours I’ve spent leafing through the Aerostitch catalog or browsing the RevZilla website lusting after this or that piece of gear. There are so many gear manufactures in the market these days that we as riders are truly spoiled for choice. It’s been my experience that most of the gear I see online is pretty pricey. Generally it can cost $1000 – $2000 to purchase an entire riding kit (jackets, pants, gloves, helmet, and boots) and that’s for moderately priced gear, you can spend significantly more. So where can a rider go to get quality gear at a more reasonable price? I’ve been taking a hard look at CycleGear’s house brand BILT for a few months trying to determine if the gear they offer is just low priced or cheap. My search online found, like most things online, deeply divided opinions regarding this question

Well I’ve decided to give BILT a try. I’m neither a new rider nor a poor rider but I am tired of shelling out thousands of dollars on gear and am hopeful that the BILT will be a viable alternative. I purchased the following BILT items that arrived today:

Explorer H2O Waterproof Adventure Jacket
Explorer H2O Waterproof Adventure Pants
Explorer Adventure Helmet
Explorer Urban Rider Adventure Gloves
Explorer H2O Waterproof Adventure Boots

The jacket, pants, helmet and gloves where a promotion package that cost $499.99, and the boots where $79.99. Shipping was free and after taxes the whole kit came to $503. Not bad for a full set of riding gear. I plan to use the gear all summer and write up my thoughts on each item. Look for an initial impression coming soon and then a long term review as I use it this year. I hope that this experiment turns out to be a positive experience because finding a reasonable source for gear would be a benefit to all of us riders.
