8a Performance Opens First-Ever Store in Cagayan de Oro

CDO’s Latest Outdoor and Sports Apparel Store!

8a Performance, a premier Filipino sports apparel brand, is thrilled to announce the grand opening of its first-ever store on June 22, 2024.


Located on the second level of The Ayala Centrio Mall on Corrales St., Cagayan de Oro City, this marks a significant milestone for the brand and a new destination for outdoor and sports enthusiasts in the region.

A Journey from Passion to Performance

8a Performance was founded by Arman “Maman” Salada, a professional rock climber born and raised in Cagayan de Oro. Maman’s extensive experience in local and international climbing competitions revealed a gap in the market for high-quality, affordable sportswear. This insight fueled his passion to create a brand that meets the needs of athletes like himself. Named after the ‘8a’ grade in sport climbing, which signifies advanced performance, 8a Performance embodies the spirit of pushing beyond limits and achieving excellence.

Grand Opening Event Highlights

The grand opening ceremony was a celebration of community and innovation. It featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by the owner, Maman Salada, along with special guests and representatives.

Councilor Bernie delivered an inspiring welcome speech, emphasizing the importance of supporting local businesses. The event also included a media interview, where Maman shared his vision for 8a Performance and its role in the local and global sports apparel market.

What Sets 8a Performance Apart

8a Performance is committed to delivering:

  • Top Quality: Gear that meets the highest standards for any adventure.
  • Affordability: Making premium sportswear accessible without breaking the bank.
  • Durability: Products built to withstand the toughest conditions.

“We’re not just a local brand; we compete globally,” asserts founder Maman Salada. “Our products are meticulously crafted to offer world-class performance—Use your gift. Master your craft—enabling athletes to #BreatheAdventure and #GetActive with confidence.”

Store Features and Product Highlights

The new store boasts an industrial, cozy layout that showcases 8a Performance’s best-selling items, including:

  • Epic Pants
  • Enduro Bike Shorts
  • Impact Tactical Pants
  • Rushmore Jackets


These products have earned rave reviews for their comfort, durability, and high performance. Dan Empainado, a satisfied customer, shares, “8a Performance (Impact shorts and Larambla long-sleeved shirts) kept me comfy and confident during a nine-day bike-packing trip. These locally made products can easily compete on the world stage of adventure apparel.”

Commitment to Excellence

With a mission to provide high-quality, affordable sports gear to Filipinos, 8a Performance aims to become the leading sports apparel brand in the country. The brand’s core values—God-fearing, direct and intentional communication, honesty and fair play, integrity, optimism, rationality, and continuous improvement—guide its commitment to excellence in product experience and customer service.
