ION – who launched its first bike clothing collection in 2013 – steps up its cycling related product portfolio for the coming season.

ION 2015-4

2015 Highlights include: 9 clothing lines, for both women and men, including an expanded rainproof outerwear range; A new Tectonic_Fit kneepad for ultimate freedom of movement, plus additional lightweight protection gear. ION’s 2015 technical bike clothing collection features three lines for women and four for men, as well as gender specific outerwear. Top-notch performance fabrics like DriRelease, Coolmax or Cordura are combined with antibacterial treatments to keep the gear fresh for longer and reduce washing.

Die Freeride Linie Flare
Flare and Scrub Scrub Series: Freeride

The new Flare (women) and Scrub (men) series set new benchmarks in the construction of technical cycling gear for the mountain bike market: The long sleeve tops combine DriRelease front panels with mesh jersey on back and arms – this product is also available in 3/4 length. The shorts are made of a special 4-way-flex fabric, with bonded hems and other details that make them extremely robust, yet lightweight

Die Urban Linie
Luzid and Roam Series: Urban

The ‘urban inspired’ lines for women Luzid and men Roam expanded to over 20 different styles for 2014: They all combine street styling with a high degree of functionality. All tops are made from DriRelease fabrics, with Freshguard, which has a classic cotton look, but dries four times faster, and is very breathable. The jeans-style shorts are super durable thanks to a Cordura fabric with 2-way flex.

Für den Trail oder danach?

The K-Cap features Tectonic_Fit technology: Overlapping and sliding protection panels keep the pad close to the knee at all times and guarantees maximum freedom of movement when pedaling. An additional, removable kneecap, delivers added safety when sliding on harsh terrain. The K_Lite and E_Lite pads offer SAS-TEC protection in a slim outline, including hidden hard caps.
