They still have a pretty big selection of alpinestar gloves, helmets, boots and jackets as well as arai helmets. Also can look through a book and order anything you like as well and shipping is pretty quick.

But blitz yea I would stay away from those and any low quality brands they have!

I don't really get what all the is about. Of course CG is going to push their house brand(s). They're in business to make money, and house brand(s) generate the most profit. It's not like they're saying their stuff is as good as A*'s, Joe Rocket, Shoei, etc. (They'll even tell you it's not) It's entry level stuff for people that don't want to spend a fortune to get into riding, and it should provide sufficient protection for up to freeway speeds. Beginning riders shouldn't be going faster than that, anyway.

Gear is designed to protect you once, then be replaced, anyway. A $1000+ track suit may look fine after going down, but what about that stressed thread you couldn't see that will break the next time you go down, causing the sleeve to come apart leaving you completely unprotected?

Don't knock inexpensive gear. It will do the job for which it was designed once, as intended. As far as seams go, A*'s seams look pretty good, but they sure have a habit of falling apart just from regular use.

There are very few motorcycle gear manufacturers offering a 5-Year Guarantee on manufacturing/materials (BiLT) and I don't know of any offering a Lifetime Guarantee on manufacturing/materials (Sedici). I don't think that you can make those offers on gear. I do know that the stuff is less expensive because Cycle Gear helped the two lines go factory-direct, so instead of everyone in the supply chain (factory > brand > distributor > retailer) marking up to get their cut, it's marked up much less.

Try the gear for yourself. If you don't like it or if it fails, take it back to Cycle Gear based on the 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, the BiLT 5-Year Guarantee or the Sedici Lifetime Guarantee.

CG also had that 707 houst brand they were pushing.
707 is the area code of CG HQ...

Most of the helmet was manufactured by HJC...with a cheaper paintjob and visor system. Shell was exactly the same as an entry HJC though.

Funny to see this discussion. I got my flyer yesterday and was noticing how cheap it could be for a new rider to get a full set up of new gear for:

Track style boots $70
Helmet $60
Gloves $30
One piece or two piece leathers for $300


If my Aggie math is right, that is around $460 for a full set up of gear that is NEW and not some hand me down stuff. I have seen plenty of riders out in $450 jackets with no gloves, wearing jeans, etc. They would be better off in this gear at $460, no question. Cheap way to get into track days if you need gear. Money better spent than on that aftermarket pipe the prototypical newb prolly wants.

It isn't top of the line, but the 5 year Guarantee would indicate to me that there is at least a level of quality that would be acceptale.

As for the name, well the Sedici name is a little cheesy to say the least. BiLT isn't so bad though.

funny, I was researching Sedici and came across this, almost verbatim (post #6).

I went into CG on I-45 north a few weeks back because they used to have a good selection of A* gear, and was surprised to see all the bilt and sedici gear. I was not impressed with the quality of material or construction. I would rather spend a bit more and get better quality gear.

Maybe its just me but I value my head more than a $60 helmet, I am fine with spending over $200 on a Shark RSR2. I have already learned that cheap gloves do not last, but I do know that my A* and Teknics gloves have held up in wear and tear. I know my Sidi boots are a lot more comfortable, lighter and better constructed than a Sedici pair that is half the cost. I definitely trust my beat up Fieldsheer jacket or any of my leather jackets than the sloppily stitched generic stuff.

Anyway I will keep taking my chances with more expensive gear, I know how it handles a get off....looking forward to seeing how BiLT and Sedici hold up...on someone else.

Interesting!
Kinda looks like CG is out hitting the forums and trying to keep people from getting too anti-CG.
I've seen the stuff, it looks kinda cheezy, I wouldn't buy it and the guy at CG I talked to, agreed. He said he felt like it was a bad move for CG to have moved out nearly all name brand stuff and replaced it with house brand cheapos.
Sure you can still get name brand from them but you have to order it now and wait to even try it on. Well, , I can do that on the internet and not have to drive to CG...

LOL. same methods as Tim "no really...i dont work for amsoil" Vapond.

pretend to be a regular forum member all over the internet and then pitch product at every opportunity. cycle queer was allready at negative 5 stars out of 10. that right there just dropped them another 5 stars.

as for their employee who was too lazy to look up a cable for a 10 year old bike. i dont blame him. im sure the store policy is to get whatever they can, but CQ wasnt paying him enough to give a . WAKE UP CQ. you cant pay people less than mcdonalds and expect them to give a about your company or your customers. oh wait...they are just following your example as you clearly dont care about your customers...seeing as you fill your store with cheap .

AAAANYways. i remember back in the day when i worked for their sharpstown location. i helped open that store. i sold like 10k worth of gear a month. i earned maybe $1000 a month at best. i work for a dealer in VA now...(aint saying which one) but i sold $49,500 worth of last month, and earned $2800 for the month after tax.

PAY people well, so they can be proud of their job, and they will act like professionals. carry GOOD, QUALITY gear and customers leave happy and with safer products in hand. they WILL come back and bring more customers with them. everyone makes more money. everyone wins. CQ will never learn this because they are a shithole.

they promise management all kinds of options and bonuses after 5 years. can them after 4 and half. LOL what a joke.
