Choosing a Suitable Cycle Gear & Accessories Brand and Outlet


Are you looking for a go-to store you can trust with your cycling needs? Choosing an outlet that speaks to you on a level over and above providing a range of required products might seem like inconsequential nitpicking, but it’s a phenomenon that holds a lot of weight. MicroArts Creative Agency found that brands and trusted stores make a huge difference to consumers. It’s the difference between embarking on a shopping expedition wracked with indecision, and walking into a store you know houses products you have faith in. The latter saves time in decision- making, cultivates a good consumer experience, offers quality in added value, and provides peace of mind. Once a consumer knows a brand/store has their back, it becomes easier to complete transactions.


And it goes so much deeper than brand loyalty too. It’s the store offering the brand that greatly impacts whether consumers walk through their doors, or whether they opt to visit a competitor.

Here are just a few influencing factors:

  • The overall shopper experience compared to other stores. This boils down to things like a store’s layout, the level of customer service, and how streamlined the shopping process is.
  • Quality and range of products. The store with a bigger range and variety of high quality products will beat out competitors without breaking a sweat. They are also more likely to have your favorite brand of cycling clothing, while eliminating the need to visit three other stores to get everything else you require thanks to their extensive range.
  • Reputation. When your cyclist friends are raving about a certain store’s great product offering and customer service, it’s hard to ignore it and go somewhere else.
  • Location, location, location. Convenience drives almost everything we do, and the outlet closest to you is more likely to be your go-to choice.
  • Involvement in the cycling community. They say birds of a feather… and consumers develop loyalty where interests are shared, and they can receive specialist knowledge and expertise.

With several outlets across the country specializing in cycle gear, clothing, accessories, and the Pearl Izumi brand, you’re really spoilt for choice taking the above into consideration. And the best part is that you don’t have to embark on a cross-country road trip to compare the different stores before deciding which one is the best option for you. Our online store locator is simple to use and puts you one click away from finding the most suitable store for your cycling needs according to budget, location, and product offering. Some stores also offer the option to purchase cycling clothing online for added convenience, giving you access to high quality gear no matter where in the country you are situated.
