To the staff of Giantnerd, nerdiness isn’t defined by pocket protectors or taped-together glasses. Rather, it’s the thrill an outdoor enthusiast has for the newest, best outdoor sporting equipment—be it a GT road bike, a Patagonia fleece jacket made with recycled material from 25 2-liter soda bottles, or a Suunto Ambit “watch” that tracks barometric altitude and includes GPS and a heart-rate monitor for mountain exploration. Giantnerd’s staff wanted to take the thrill of finding quality outdoor equipment and athletic apparel to the next level by creating a more transparent shopping experience. To this end, they allow users to rank and review the products they’ve bought, pushing the best finds to the top.
Giantnerd’s sizeable online shop puts customers in touch with whatever gear they need, whether they seek climbing harnesses, snowboarding goggles, or an extra-warm Marmot jacket for holiday visits to snowman relatives. Their bike selection is particularly extensive, with road bikes, mountain bikes, cyclocross bikes, and other varieties from brands such as Tommaso and BAMF. A 365-day return policy gives buyers a year to return items, so long as they’re in the same condition and have the original packaging.
