ION – a watersports brand that launched its first bike clothing collection in 2013 – steps up its bicycling related product portfolio for the upcoming season.
The „urban inspired“ lines for women “Luzid” and men “Roam” grew up to 20 different styles for 2014: They all combine a street style look with high functionality. All tops are made of Drirelease fabrics with Freshguard, which has a classic cotton look, but dries four times faster than cotton and is very breathable.
Brand new is also the women „Flare“ Line. The long sleeve tops combine DriRelease front panels with airy mesh jerseys on back and arms. The shorts are made of a special 4way_flex fabric, with bonded hems and details that make them extremely robust and very light at the same time.
Bad weather days aren’t a problem with ION bike gear either: The new outerwear range includes wind jackets, vests, soft shell jackets and an long unisex enduro pant made of very flexible water repellent fabric.
The new RAM bike glasses feature a split frame to change lens easily. The less sporty, but more lifestyle designed frame comes in 3 different packages and 6 colorways, including specially developed Zeiss lenses.
The Eurobike 2013 award winning “K_Pact_Select” features a patent pending construction uniting maximum freedom of movement and protection at the same time. The patent pending ION “Tectonic-Fit”: Separate, overlapping and sliding protection panels in the knee and shin section keep the pad always close to the knee but also guarantee a so far unknown flexibility and pedaling comfort.
