Where Van Gogh meets Philips

Eversince the first Pilot was made, we have been loyal to our hometown Nuenen. Every bike is still designed and built in house, so we can keep an eye on the quality of every part of the process.

Smartest region in the world

The area around Eindhoven is a hotspot for tech companies. The area isn't called Brainport Eindhoven for nothing, with renowned companies like Philips, world leading chip machine supplier ASML and chipmaker NXP, just to name a few. Recently, the world's biggest bicycle component maker Shimano opened their European headquarters in the area. It's in this unique, tech-meets-rural environment Pilot was founded!
But why titanium?
'Hey good looking'

When you are as in love with titanium as we are, it is hard to believe that there are people that do not know about this incredible material. The classic titanium look has been around for many years and it's here to stay. A TI bike is robust, but elegant.

Whether you are doing a tour on a smoothly anodized titanium race bike, or conquering the forest on a custom titanium 29-er, you are likely to get a lot of attention. Because titanium makes you stand out from the crowd!

Endless custom options

A titanium bike is perfect for customizing. In contrast to carbon fibre, there are no molds involved in the production process of a titanium frame. This means that we can build a bike that is tailored exactly to your preferences. Every Pilot customer can be part of the designing process of his own dream bike. In other words, we believe that every cyclist needs a different approach, and titanium is the material that facilitates this!

Durability

We do not pretend that we are saving the world, but we guarantee that our bikes are as durable as can be. A titanium bike does not need to be painted, so the use of chemicals is kept to a minimum. In addition, with the right care, a titanium Pilot frame lasts a lifetime. If you accidentally scratch your Pilot, you can easily remove it. The Pilot abides!
