About Us







Our Staff: We have hiked, biked, climbed and skied all over the world. We are consistently rated 4.5+ stars on Yelp and have won many "best gear shop" awards over the years. We love our customers, our sports, and helping our customers get the equipment and advice they need.  History: Founded in 1996, Second Ascent has been helping cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts get outside for nearly twenty years. We have grown from a small used sporting good store in Fremont to a full-service outdoor retail store. Along the way we've changed many things, but we've always stayed true to our focus on quality service. 

Assortment: We carry a wide selection of new, used, closeout, and sample product from premium outdoor brands. Though the name connotes used, our store now mostly consists of new, closeout, and sample product. 

Our Sports: Hiking, snowshoeing, trail running, cross country skiing, mountain biking, road biking, mountaineering, rock climbing, backcountry skiing, and much more!
