Edited to Add: Bike Loot is no longer in business.
Bike Loot is a new’ish monthly subscription service that offers you a box containing 5 to 7 top-quality, pro-level cycling product samples delivered straight to your door. Now I know that B and I are NOT cyclists, but B is tossing around the idea of doing a half ironman next year (no, he can’t just sit still), so who knows, maybe we’ll become one ;).
Bike Loot ships via USPS First Class and arrived nice and quickly. Bike Loot ships in a box a tad bigger than Birchbox and a tad smaller than GLOSSYBOX.
I wasn’t totally sure what to expect from Bike Loot, but I was excited to see that the products looked interesting and were fairly nice sized.
Since I didn’t know what a lot of the items in the box were, I was
~Elete Electrolytes: This couldn’t be any easier. You mix the little packet with anywhere between 8oz and 32oz of water (your call) for a dose of electrolytes. Noting bulky to tote around which is key because cyclists don’t have baskets on the front of their bikes to carry a bunch of stuff around ;).
~Body Glove Surge: This is totally a B item and I can see it being consumed before his next long run. His knee has been bothering him so he hasn’t been running a ton lately. Hey, maybe he’ll actually use this before his next bike ride because that does not bother his knee.
~EBoost: We have gotten EBoost in other boxes and are always happy to see it. We never buy it, but use it when it comes in our boxes. I don’t really know if it’s benefiting my health because I don’t take it daily like recommended, but I figure it can’t hurt either!
~Pro Gold Pro Towels: Sometimes you just get sweaty and stinky riding your bike, running or doing whatever. And these are perfect to carry along with you in case you need to make a stop or run an errand before you can get cleaned up.
~Wired Waffles: I saved my most favorite item for last. WIRED WAFFLES! They are waffles with caffeine. Plus, they were on Shark Tank and I love that show. I couldn’t resist trying it right away and it’s not the waffle taste I expected but I did like it. I’m not overly sure I’d keep them in the house though because I’d be afraid L would try and drag one as a snack and yeah, that wouldn’t be good! He’d bounce of the walls with this much caffeine.
~Aeroshot Energy: This has 100mg of caffeine and no calories or liquids to slow you down on your ride. Interesting right? I know that B will be more than game to try this and I look forward to seeing what he thinks because, well, I think these are cute containers ;).
I didn’t do a cost breakdown on Bike Loot but I do think that if you are cyclist looking to try new fuels and other items on your rides, this is for you. I probably could figure out a use for all these items myself and no of them would even be cycling related.
