The Freel | Women's Bike Short
Gear.com has a perfect 5-star average score on Trustpilot.
Quality is the name of its game. The Freel was built with you in mind — your body, your comfort, and your adventures. Sure, they’re pretty, but they were built to last. No frills: just a fun pattern, a great fit and mindful details.
A sturdy, enduro-ready women's mountain bike short, the Freel is made out of a durable, four-way stretch nylon fabric that is sun, splash, and shrub resistant. Perfect for everything from local races to singletrack rides to the bar, the Freel can handle anything you throw at it.
Sloths: We celebrate the slow roll. These fun sloth friends are here to remind you that it’s not always about being first—it’s about enjoying the ride. Designed by one of our favorite lady illustrators.
Bees: Inspired by flight, these hand-drawn bee buddies salute spring and summer while bringing just the right touch of feminine in a lovely mauve.
Swirling Dots: Just the right touch of class in a bright cornflower blue, the swirling dots keep it simple and are inspired by movement, no matter your style or speed.
Vicuñas: They’re baaaaack. The Vicuña shorts sold out so fast last season, that they’re back for a victory lap in an updated gray. Spit aside, these quirky creatures pack a personality (and, if you’re lucky, all your s**t). They’re more than pack animals—they’re ready to party, and they don’t make excuses. Embrace your inner vicuña!
Geo Dot: We think this understated pattern makes a statement. Pair it with anything. Camouflage that dirt (or suds spill or hot sauce stain). You can’t go wrong with the classy and playful geo dot pattern.
Arrows: We believe in following your arrow: to the summit, to the snack break, to the post-ride bar and toward all your biggest and best dreams and ambitions. Take flight with the ever-popular arrows pattern, now in a bright, fresh coral.

We understand that not every purchase works out, which is why we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

How to return by mail
Due to high demand, our returns process may take longer than usual. Typically, we will issue a refund within 10 business days after we receive your package. It may take up to 3 additional weeks for your bank to refund your credit card or for a refund check to arrive. Thank you for your patience as we process returns as quickly and safely as possible.
Follow these three steps:
Print your shipping label
To make shipping a return even easier, we offer a prepaid return shipping label for eligible U.S. customers returning products that don’t need to ship freight. Some exceptions apply. Reach out to email@example.com to initiate your return request, and to ensure the item is being returned to the correct warehouse/address.
Please note: $8.95 will be deducted from your refund to cover return shipping for standard size/weight packages when you use the prepaid shipping label provided by Gear.com. This charge only applies if your return is mailed using a prepaid label our team provides, but will not be deducted if you pay for the return shipping yourself. Shipping costs to return oversized items (such as coolers, skis, furniture, large stoves and tents, etc) will be calculated on a case-by-case basis. Please don’t hesitate to ask firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about typical return shipping for an oversized item you may order.
Pack your return
Pack your item(s) securely and include the original product packaging and tags.
Prepare & ship your package
Tape your package securely and affix your return shipping label to the outside. (Hint: If you cover or remove all existing shipping labels, you can usually reuse the bag or box your order came in.) Drop off your package at a carrier location near you. We’ll email you once we’ve issued a store credit or a refund – typically within 10 business days after we receive your package. It may take up to 3 additional weeks for your bank to refund your credit card.
