ION adds a new longsleeve style to its Traze series and widens the range of relaxed, yet functional Allmountain & Enduro oriented bikewear. The combination of the brand new Tee LS Helix and the Bikeshorts Vertex comes in a sportive design featuring a – typically ION – surf-inspired look. On the functional side, ION‘s Tee LS Helix and the Bikeshorts Vertex are made for the exhausting ups and downs of extended trail rides and the long ascents and descents in the alps: Smart material combinations and the right fit make for a pleasant wearing comfort plus the right climate. Find all informations in the official press release:



The all-new Tee LS Helix has a Regular_Fit to meet the demands of style-conscious All Mountain riders and Enduro racers and is partly made of Nano Bamboo Charcoal Polyester: Bamboo Charcoal particles are diffused into the yarn structure during its production resulting in great moisture-wicking properties and a cooling effect of the fabric. Additionally, ION applies mesh panels on the sides of the Tee LS Helix for superior ventilation and the right climate inside the shirt. Temperature management at its best!

When it comes to details the Tee LS Helix features ION‘s Clear_Optics glasses wipe for cleaning your shades & goggles at hem. The Ticket_Port at the lower back offers storage for your lift ticket in case you want to go out for a lift accessed trail ride. Coming in two colors – black & crimson red – the black version will already be available from Fall ‘15. When it comes to colors: the Tee LS Helix perfectly matches ION’s Bikeshort Vertex and features the same style as the Tee SS Strait.
Sizes: Small – X-Large


Bikeshorts Vertex

The Bikeshorts Vertex takes the pole position in the grid of ION‘s allmountain shorts: It comes in a lightweight and elastic 2way_Stretch fabric (polyamid elasthane mix) combined with Coolmax® bers. Its stretch grants for maximum freedom of movement and the right t in any riding situation. The Coolmax® bers offer superior comfort with a very effective moisture management on hot summer days plus a hollow structure for an isolating effect in cooler conditions. Another plus for the Vertex‘ comfort are those lasercut ventilation holes called Jet_Stream on the legs‘ inside. The velcro-adjusted Waist_Regula- tion at the hips is accessible from the outside allowing for a quick and invidual adjustment of these shorts. Re ective_Details increase the visibility when heading back home on the streets after a late trail sesh and two zippered front pockets take care of some money, credit card and the smartphone in the integrated Phone_Pouch.
