THE FINAL SALE

Wildcat Gear will be closing its doors at the end of March 2019.

With approaching 10 years of UK-made bikepacking gear behind us, it hasn’t been an easy decision, but life constantly unfolds to present new challenges and we want to make the most of those opportunities. 

Wildcat started from very humble beginnings, and developed into a well respected small brand that produced simple but innovative kit that just worked. Feedback from our customers has been constantly amazing, and a big thanks for your support over the years.

All remaining stock is discounted by up to 50% and availability of some items is fairly low. When it’s gone, it’s gone. So be quick! 

 

 

Bikepacking:
The next generation of cycle touring

Bikepacking is a term that has grown significantly in recent years. Whether you prefer to call it randonneuring, adventure cycling, audax or just plain old cycle touring, it’s safe to say it’s nothing new. History shows us inspiring images of rugged men with sparsely laden steel bicycles crossing barren wilderness. More than 100 years later, just how much have things changed?

Bikepacking has been in our blood for decades; it wasn’t called that back then, but it was why we bought bikes. To head out into the wilderness of Wales; gradually honing those skills of carrying just enough to be comfortable. To not be laden with excess gear that slows you down and detracts from the pleasures of the journey.

Back in 2010, Wildcat Gear was born out of ideas and designs to make bikepacking luggage better and more available in the UK. We focused especially on gear that was up to the  rigours of UK riding, be that road or off road. The more off road for us the better.

We needed to satisfy our desire to takes bikes places where  traditional rack and panniers wouldn’t go. Breathing innovation into these simple concepts of 100 years ago lead to some fantastic designs that have shaped the way we use bike luggage today.

We’re really proud that all the gear on this site is made in Britain. However far you ride, we can equip you with some of the finest modern bikepacking luggage available today. We’ve used the space around the bike strategically to maximise versatility and maintain even weight distribution to preserve predictable handling. All this combines to maximise the ride quality and your enjoyment, wherever you ride.

Ride far, ride free
