If cycling, running, swimming or triathlon is your thing you would be well advised to treat yourself to a visit to the new Edge Sports shop (title sponsors of the The Edge Sports Blackwater Triathlon held in Fermoy annually) on Parnell Place, Cork city.

The new 3,000sq.ft. city centre store is designed to serve your needs whether you are new to one of the sports or competitive in all three.

If you are in the market for a bike, from a fully kitted out commuter for €400 up to the latest and lightest carbon road bike, you will benefit from a sizing by the in-store laser body scanning machine that enables measurements to be taken in moments to help recommend the best bike size.

A basic bike fitting on a turbo trainer and a bike 30-day service are both complimentary with every bike sale.

Your precious bike can be serviced in-store by a Cytech qualified mechanic to fit your schedule, just contact the shop or book in advance if you need a quick turnaround. The shop is well stocked with bike parts, clothing and accessories for all your needs.

There is a full Asics video gait analysis area in-store to recommend the best type of running shoe to help prevent injury. A wide selection of the best brands and running shoes are stocked from Asics, Nike, Adidas, Brooks and Mizuno.
