Policies On Buying Used Gear At Windance

At Windance, we love bringing you quality gear at affordable prices. Used gear is a great way to get into a new sport or try something different without breaking the bank. Used gear is also great for people who like to tinker and do their own maintenance and repairs, since used gear is typically less reliable and requires more maintenance than new gear.  


All used gear sales are final with no returns, refunds, or exchanges.


All used gear items are sold as-is with no warranty. We take great care in making sure that the used gear items we offer are inspected for quality control. Each item is looked at by our knowledgeable staff and given a letter grade for quality, and we don’t accept items that are too old or are clearly no longer safe to ride. However, we do not guarantee the serviceability of used gear.


Buying used gear on consignment always carries some amount of risk. We do our absolute best to make sure you have a good idea of what you’re buying. Please see the chart below to get a good idea of what you’re getting before you buy. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask! We’re always available for any questions and concerns you might have and are happy to give the gear a quick look or even snap an extra picture of it for you.


Used gear prices automatically drop 10% every month until the item is sold. Prices are firm as advertised.

Policies On Selling Used Gear At Windance

Looking to unload your used gear? Our used gear consignment program makes the process of clearing out your old gear and making room for the new a breeze!


Simply bring in your used items for inspection and, once approved, we take care of the rest!


When we check out your gear, we’ll accept or reject it, recommend a price, provide you with documentation, and take the item off your hands. You can then kick back and wait for your account to be credited when it sells.
