About Us

I struggled for years to find mountain bike shorts that fit. I'm a lean guy with a bigger butt, and shorts were always too tight through the seat. In the bike world, lots of you are built like me, and I've heard your frustration.

I see reviews that say a short "has the perfect fit." Really? For who? Me Mr. Big Ass, or you Mr. Skinny Hipster? There's no way for one bike short to fit all of us. I created Abit Gear to fix this problem by offering shorts in two different fits. 

Our driving principles are Great Fit - Durability - Simple Designs

About Justin

 

I'm Justin Vander Pol, founder of Abit Gear. I have been riding mountain bikes, building trails, and fighting for trail access for the last 20 years. As Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance’s first Executive Director, I helped create a ton of trails in Washington State. Along with Evergreen's army of volunteers, I laid the foundation for the nationally recognized success that Evergreen is today.
 
My pledge to you is that I will use the success of Abit Gear to continue supporting nonprofits such as Evergreen that fight for trail development and the protection of our great open spaces.

 

Justin was the creator of Duthie Hill MTB park. Here are his original sketches of the Duthie Hill concept. At the time it was revolutionary to have legal trails with these features.
