A Return Authorization Number and corresponding shipping label expires 30 days from the date of issue. Expired Return Authorizations and labels will be refused at UPS shipping centers. 

We will pay the return shipping cost for defective products and incorrectly shipped products. For all other products being returned within the “return period”, we do not cover the cost of return shipping. The cost of the return freight will be deductcted from your product return credit.

Returned merchandise must be in original condition, and include all factory packed accessories and paperwork (e.g. straps, unmarked warranty card, manuals, instructional cards, etc.), in the original manufacturer bag/box and packaging with UPC, barcode, and serial number intact. Incomplete returns will receive a reduced credit reflecting any missing accessories, packaging or literature. Please take special care when opening products shipped in plastic clamshell packaging as we may be unable to accept a return for items with destroyed or damaged packaging. Removal or alteration of a product's UPC number or serial number label will automatically void any possibility of return for credit or replacement. Products that are returned with a missing or altered UPC or serial number will be returned to the sender. The product serial number must match the serial number in our database (we maintain serial number tracking).

Returned merchandise must be double boxed with no writing on the manufacturer's box. We will not, under any circumstances, accept a return that uses a skate box or shoe box as the outer box even if the items inside are different than what is depicted on the box. Your Return Authorization Number must be displayed prominently on the outside of the shipping box. Packages without a Return Authorization Number will be refused. Refused deliveries will be subject to a return shipping fee. Returned merchandise that is lost or damaged during transit is solely the shipper's responsibility. It is important to save the tracking information to properly insure all merchandise has been successfully returned.

Return Shipping

Return shipping cost (the cost to send an item back to our warehouse) is like or comparable to your cost of driving to any store for returning an item, which is not reimbursable. Therefore, we do not reimburse any return shipping cost.

If an item you received is defective or was not the item you ordered, we will certainly replace the item with a new one, and we will cover or reimburse the shipping cost for returning defective or incorrectly sent merchandise back to our warehouse. We will ship the replacement product to you at our cost, and use every good measure to ensure that the replacement order is processed quickly.

 

Refunds & Store Credit

Please view our Return Policy for a list of what is considered ineligible for Return. Refunds do not apply to the cost of shipping or handling charges. You are responsible for the actual price of shipping even if the shipping was free or discounted. In some cases the actual price of shipping may exceed the amount originally charged for shipping, the difference in shipping cost will be deducted from any refund. All Refunds are applied to the payment method used at the time of purchase 5-10 business days after the returned merchandise has been received, inspected and processed. Requests for store credit or anything of that nature will not be allowed.

 

Exchanges

If you purchased a product from us that you wish to exchange for an alternative, you can return the item for a refund of the product purchase minus freight cost and simply place a new order for the item you desire. It may take 5-10 days for a return to be received, inspected and processed.

 

Defective Items

An item that was discovered to be defective upon receipt can be replaced, or returned for a full refund for the purchase price provided that the item hasn't been used. We will pay the return shipping cost for defective merchandise. As the manufacturer, we are responsible for product defects, because we manufacture the products we carry. If you send the defective item back to us, we will replace the item and ship the replacement to you at no charge. We will do whatever it takes to ensure that your item is replaced promptly, without hassle.

 

Refused Deliveries

If you refuse delivery, a credit will be issued to your card used for purchase for the price of the merchandise minus the actual cost of shipping and the cost of return shipping.
