The Brilliant Difference

What’s so brilliant about Brilliant? Well, getting around, seeing friends, getting stuff done—all of those are important in college. Hassling with your bicycle isn’t. Brilliant Bicycles are high-quality, low-miantenance, and don’t look like you need to be wearing spandex to ride one. Built with the signature Gates Carbon Drive, they are designed to help you take on college without taking on a bunch of upkeep. That’s school at a better speed.

Style Meets Substance

A bike is your ride or die. It takes you where you want to go, and says a lot about you. Our bikes have all the function without any of the fuss, at an unbeatable price.

Driven By Gates

Unchain yourself from the rust, grease, and maintenance of a traditional chain. The Gates Carbon Drive belt lasts longer than a chain, and you don’t need to lube it, it won’t stain your clothes, or lock up and leave you stranded.
