Our Story:

Over 50 years ago John and Sidney Maxwell founded a company called The Ski Hut, in Wilton Center, as a way to share their family's  passion for skiing with the community. In 1983 their son, Jack Maxwell changed our name to Outdoor Sports Center, and moved us to 80 Danbury Road in Wilton. The name and location change was part Jack's dream to share his enthusiasm and philosophy; to help grow and nurture respect for the outdoors by using it as our playground. Today, we are still 100% family owned, many of our staff have been with us for 15 years or more, and we are proud to have customers that can recall our "Ski Hut" heritage.

Our commitment remains to promote a friendly and knowledgeable community, to provide only the best gear and service, and to always promote awareness of outdoor resources through their use as a playground.

First 2015 Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 in the US

04/08/2014

Check this out! We've got the brand new 2015 Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 being built right now. Actually, we're the only ones, this is the first production one in the US. The new larger wheel size is just right for all-mountain shredders who want to climb fast, but want to descend even faster across the whole range of mountain terrain.

JekyllThe most successful Enduro platform in the world evolves into an all-new race weapon with the 2015 Jekyll. Working with Enduro World Champion Jerome Clementz, Cannondale made his winning bike even winning-er with all-new geometry, Lefty SuperMax front suspension, a new Fox DYAD rear shock tune with increased travel, and of course, 27.5" wheels. You don't have to be Jerome to appreciate its perfect-for -Enduro dual nature - you just have to want the most versatile all-mountain bike out there.

Dyad

DYAD's unique dual-shock technology lets you transform your bike on the fly from long travel to short travel and back again, depending on your mood and whatever the trail is throwing your way. Where other bikes are forced to use one middle-of-the-road travel and geometry for both climbing and descending, DYAD doesn't compromise. With its dual modes, Elevate and Flow, it delivers the right shock response and the right geometry at the right moment.

Cool New Looks for the Summer Heat

04/04/2014

Spring is here, and summer is right around the corner. All the footwear you need to get out and enjoy the change in weather is here at Outdoor Sports Center. We are really excited to being carrying two new brands Sperry and Hari Mari, as well as welcome back an old favorite, Birkenstock.

Sperry TablePaul Sperry was born into a Connecticut family with a long sea-faring tradition. An avid sailor and inventor, who almost lost his life to a slippery deck, Paul Sperry spent years and dozens of experiments trying to perfect a non-slip boat shoe. One day, after watching his dog dart effortlessly across the ice, he carved grooves - like those on his dog's paws - into the bottom of a rubber sole. In that moment of inspiration, the world's first boat shoe was born beginning the legacy of Sperry Top-Sider.

Birk Table

Birkenstock has passion for their products, an appreciation of their heritage and a genuine belief in their benefits. To that end, their business is a reflection of what they choose to represent - quality products that are comfortable, unique, timeless and respectful of the world around us. In a word, trendscendent. They have been a classic for hundreds of years, and we are excited to carry them again.
