A Sports Equipment Rental Company You Can Trust

Mission Statement

Rapid Rent/Outlaw Sports is the only year-round ski and bike shop in Calgary. We believe that a shop should be relaxed, comfortable and affordable. Since 1992 our goal has been to provide Calgary and area with a place that fills the need between impersonal, low quality big box stores and the specialized, overpriced, elite ski shops. We believe a demo program should include everyone from entry level to big mountain; we should all have the right to try before we buy. We believe in knowledgeable, non-commission staff, who can offer information and understanding without high pressure sales.

Company History

Two cowboys started Rapid Rent-A-Ski in the fall of 1992 offering only ski rentals with a service shop in Calgary’s south-west community of Haysboro. From a very humble beginning with hard work, dedication and determination Rapid Rent-A-Ski grew to become a well known and respected ski shop with a reputation of excellent customer service and quality products. It is now a year round business that includes bike rentals, sales and service.

Over time Rapid Rent-A-Ski expanded to include a vast selection of sports rental equipment, both summer and winter. This brought about the need to change the name to simply Rapid Rent. As time passed, the demand to sell new equipment forced the company to expand into retail. This brought about the need for further expansion and a name change. As a result we came up with our present name Rapid Rent / Outlaw Sports. Our original name Rapid Rent was kept to service the 15 years of clientele it has established. Outlaw Sports was added to compliment the theme of a “Western/Cowboy/ Ski Chalet” concept. This has proved to be a huge success with the customers, as the atmosphere inside the store is relaxed and comfortable. We believe it has set a new standard for ski shops in Calgary. At 5400 sq. ft. Rapid Rent/Outlaw Sports has become one of the largest in Calgary.
