We take a look at some great outdoor spots on the emerald isle

We asked GO staff where their favourite outdoor spots were in Ireland, and here’s what we have come up with. Read more

Fat Bike fun with the Calibre Dune!

Comments

Spring might be around the corner but the wet and wintry weather is still lingering on. So with sloppy trails and no end in sight, why not embrace the mud (and maybe even snow) and treat yourself to a fat bike?

Two Wheels Better took a first look at our Dune and a range of customer reviews from the Go Outdoors website to get an idea of whether the Dune is a budget blaster to be reckoned with.

Their verdict? We’re thrilled to see the team at Two Wheels Better were impressed with the look and that it “didn’t feel like a cheap bike” following a quick spin at Mountain Mayhem.

Why not take a look at their full review and even some of our customers’ thoughts here: http://twowheelsbetter.cc/bikes-gear/calibre-dune-fatbike-from-gooutdoors-first-look/
