The store also boasts five simulators, including an indoor interactive non-motorised climbing wall with a rotating surface to simulate climbing without height risks.

The Durasport retail outlet also offers a number of cutting-edge products, among which are the world's first graphene bike, heat-mouldable cycling trainers, stretch-resistant wetsuits, adjustable ski boots, and breath-extending snorkels.
