Shortly after the inaugural winter bivvy, Wildcat Gear came into being. First products were custom frame bags.
Lion harness developed and launched to secure your dry bag to the front of the bike.
The first saddle harness system was launched, adopting the convenient and secure attachment to match the Lion.
Big Year - Ocelots came into being, to shorten the queue for frame bag orders. The Lioness front storage bag was developed to compliment the Lion - this was launched at Bespoked in London. We also developed a Fat Lion to hold large dry bags for arctic conditions. Last by not least, the Tom Cat - first to market with an easily accessible storage bag that mounted into the loop of the Jones bar. Highland Trail tested.
Very proud to have won a 'Best in Show' award at the Bespoked Handbuilt Bike Show.
Ever keen to push the boundaries, we produced and exhibited a full set of luggage weighing in at less than 300g.
After a quiet period where Beth and Ian let the business take a backseat to their young family, Wildcat is relaunched with key new partner Steven Shand (Shand Cycles) bringing a wealth of experience from the 'Adventure Cycling' industry. New product range is being developed through 2019 with a view to relaunch with new products and website early in 2020.
