Apres Ride at the Overlook

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, and for 2021 in two lengths. 

Our driving principles are Great Fit - Durability - Simple Designs

About Justin Vander Pol - Abit Gear Founder
Justin is founder and owner of Abit Gear. He's 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, Justin helped create a ton of trails in Washington State. Along with Evergreen's army of volunteers, the foundation was laid 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 created the concept for Duthie Hill MTB park - though the hard work of building it was done by Evergreen MTB Alliance volunteers and staff, led by Mike Westra. Here are Justin's original sketches of the Duthie Hill concept that he pitched to King County. At the time it was revolutionary to have legal trails with these features.
