Our mission is to make the outdoors more accessible and sustainable

Gear is expensive. Whether you're a skier trying to find send sticks, a cyclist searching for a trusty steed, or a climber looking for bomber gear, we all know that the cost to get into the outdoors can be pretty steep.

That's why we're creating Switchbackr — to increase the accessibility of the outdoors by making it easier to buy and sell gear. Not only that, but buying pre-owned is also better for the environment because it extends the effective lifespan of our gear! That's a double whammy if we've ever heard one, which we have.
