About
Snowboard and Mountain bike shop offering demos, rentals and service. Performance Bike Rentals include DH, Trail and Road rentals. Booking ahead recommended as we are often booked out due to having some of the best rentals available in Whistler. We also stock a couple of excellent Jr DH rental bikes. Excellent Bike Service available year-round. Visit us for local trail info and maps, we are happy to share our trail knowledge with you and get you going in the right direction! In the winter months we Demo performance snowboards and bindings (bring your own boots, or we can fit you in a great new pair, custom molding available in most models as well!). And we can assist you in selecting a new board from freestyle to backcountry and split-boarding as well as all of the gear and style! Great goggle, hat mitt and glove selection! Mountain Street Fashion includes many BC and Whistler local brands! Evolution logo-wear hats, T-shirts and jerseys are the coolest souvenirs in Whistler!

Best shop in Whistler village. Friendly and helpful staff. A fun vibe. Independent business, unlike many of the shops in the village. Top notch bike rentals and service. This is the premiere place to rent bikes, buy bikes and gear and to get service in Whistler. Exceptionally good.

We hired two santa cruz mountain bikes to explore the trails of whistler. The price was reasonable and the bikes are just so well maintained that they were a real pleasure to ride. After riding the Santa Cruz Bronson I need to now buy one. The mountain bike trails in Whistler are a must!!

We rented 2 bikes for our Kids and got a very fair and professional service. We can really recommend that shop as well as the gear they provide

We had two and half days in Whistler. If the weather suites then our two main recommendations are a Zipline adventure (we used Ziptrek - Excellent) and hiring bikes for a tour of the valley ( we used Evolution - excellent).

Our hotel the Crystal Lodge provided us with bike hire discount voucher for Evolution Whistler which is in the same huge block as the hotel.

The Evolution staff provided us with all the equipment but more importantly helped plan our trip depending on how much time we had available.

We had an incredibly scenic ride taking in Lost Lake , most of Green Lake and then following some some creeks , just exploring. The bike parks a great. Table Nineteen which is located on Green Lake is a great place to stop for morning tea, lunch or a few beers and wines.

Remember to take your camera as the scenery is breathtaking. You can make a day of it if you like. We are both in our sixties and handled the ride easily.

Thoroughly recommend "Evolution Whistler" for you hiring needs.

Living in coastal Southern California, I have plentiful choices for surf skate and mountain bike shops for clothing and equipment. I feel I have become quite the connoisseur of the radical sports kit. But never has a shop had such a memorable impact on me as Evolution, Whistler.

It is no surprise that it is now celebrating over 20 years in business. The buyer that chooses the clothing and equipment that is sold in the store obviously takes great care in knowing the clientele and applies personal taste / outdoors experiences to his/her selection. It is no wonder that it has such a strong and loyal "cult-like" following. The shop rocks!

Just about every 5 years, I make the pilgrimage with family or friends to ski/snowboard Whistler and I always make sure to visit Evolution. I have to imagine that summer is no exception to the popularity of the mountain and the need for a shop like Evolution.

The snowboarding equipment inventory is not like many ski warehouse shops but rather boutique in scale. Due to the small size of the shop, the square footage demands that only the highest quality merchandise be displayed. The same goes for the mountain bike equipment and clothing.

My only complaint is that they don't offer a more diverse selection of "Evolution brand" clothing and gear. I always try and support the "little guy" and would love to show off the Evolution brand. Being in such a tourist destination, this place could capitalize $$$ by carrying a larger selection of souvenir apparel.
Perhaps the scarcity is what makes it that much more special.

I would highly recommend this shop.

HI BarbaricDerek! :) Thank you for the amazing review!! Wow, you have given me a great boost as i have been buying (everything) for my shop for 22 years now and i wonder sometimes if my taste and picks are as good as they used to be; thank you for confirming that i still have the knack. And i appreciate that you are on me to have more of our Evolution prints, i agree. I will place an order for blank T's and hats tonight and put together a design right away as a thank you to you for taking the time to write the review! (i also put together all of the designs myself - let me know if you have any suggestions!!) :) See you next pilgrimage! Jenine PS: please mention to me that you are BarbaricDerek next time you are in the shop and i will be sure to give you a few shop stickers!! (you can check with my staff when i will be in next - usualy a few days each week)
