Default Bilt ... Anyone hear of this brand

I recently found out about an $economy$ friendly brand called Bilt. Does anyone know anything about this brand ? They sell their full suits for like $300.

Default BiLT

CycleGear.com I know is a seller of this brand, went into a CycleGear store today in Bear, DE and they had the boots out and some other stuff, so i tried them on. The Boots fit good and feel sturdy. (BiLT Trackstar) The gloves were good, mostly all lower end gloves (shortcuff, all leather/mesh, no carbon/kevlar reenforcement). I did see some of their suits but did not try them on, their jackets felt good and had CE approved armor in them. The guy in the store said they are geared towards more commutters/crusing around. Not so much towards the Track (except for the race suit).

Hope this helps. Cycle Gear - Motorcycle Apparel, Parts and Accessories has the BiLT Trackstar boots on the front page. On sale for like 69.99, originally 139.99, i think(comparable to Sidi Fusion Air.....kind of). Hope this helps.

The boots are $69.99 until August 24th. Free shipping on orders 69.99 and over, awesome price. I am buying mine next week!

I saw a bunch of Bilt brand stuff when I went to Cyclegear to pick up a jacket today. I just took a glance, but it seems to be pretty decent craftsmanship.

It's CycleGear's house brand (maybe not officially, but in reality it is). Not unlike Sliders for Competition Accessories, or Xelement for LeatherUp. It's definitely entry-level, and permanently 'on sale' as far as I can see. I don't have a specific problem with it. I will say that the house brand m/c cover I bought from CycleGear a couple months ago is just about destroyed now by the sun. Hopefully, the Bilt stuff is better than their other house brands. If not, I'd avoid.
