PILOT CYCLES B.V.
Pilot Cycles is where it all started: fully customizable titanium bikes. Pilot offers 14 standardized models, in 5 different disciplines: Gravel, MTB, Road, Trekking and E-Bike, but is also known for making tailor made titanium frames. The term custom has undergone some inflation over the last few years, but this is not the case with Pilot. The people behind Pilot help the rider find their perfect bike by listening, measuring and turning experience into a beautiful tailor made frame.
PILOT TRADING COMPANY
Pilot Trading Company is built to serve the bicycle oriented retailer, by offering a unique, high-end product range on an easy to use online b2b store. Through the years we have built a loyal customer base and a solid portfolio of brands that we produce and distribute. With multiple in house marketing experts, and a close coöperation with a multi-lingual marketing agency, we also take care of marketing activities of the brands that we distribute.
IF YOU CAN MAKE IT HERE YOU CAN MAKE IT ANYWHERE.
“With its 25 million bicycles and more than 15 Billion kilometers per year in a very bicycle-oriented infrastructure, the Netherlands is perhaps the best environment to trade bicycle-related products but above all to obtain well-founded feedback.
This means that we can directly translate the most intensive, experiential and critical use into the careful composition of our products and brands. Something that benefits cyclists all over the world.
This focus on the very accurately determined brand package prevents fragmentation and ensures that we can support our specialized dealers very specifically with service, product knowledge, marketing or in any other desired way. At the same time, Pilot partners have a wide product range with successful own brands such as PILOT and OHR.
One of the challenges we face is the mobility of the future. In a changing world, we are looking for alternative solutions – especially in the field of Sustainability and Innovation.”
