ION was founded in 2004 and quickly made a name for itself - with wetsuits and everything that a surfer's heart desires. With innovative ideas from surfers for surfers the brand from Oberhaching made it to the top of the global market. In 2012 ION extended their product range to include a line of bike products: a different area of application, the same passion for sport. But the connection with watersports can still be seen in the bike shorts and t-shirts; fresh styles and bright colours allowing the borders between land and sea to merge in the nicest possible way.
With ION you can experience the layered look on the bike to the max. Garments for wearing between the inner and outer clothing layers are available in several product lines both for men and women. The mountain bike shorts and t-shirts from the Traze line are suitable for just about any trail. The all-mountain and enduro collection goes by the name of Scrub. Specially for freeriders, ION have developed their Seek models - their connection to the surfboard is particularly clear from the casual style. Their bike shirts and shorts are designed to offer maximum freedom of movement and breathability, whilst being extremely light. ION's mountain bike shorts are made from stretch materials that accompany your every move - whether you're gaining altitude or enjoying the downhill flow. Some garments also boast a high-performance four-way stretch. Lighter materials between the legs and over the buttocks provide ventilation where you need it most. The highest fabric requirements as well as triple-stitched seams ensure the robustness that you expect from your new bike shorts. The waistband on the shorts can be adjusted to your waist via Velcro or a cord.
Maximum grip and no bothersome seams: ION make the palms of their gloves from a single piece of material. Your hands will always have a tight hold on the handlebars, without pressure points. The synthetic leather Holy_Cow is tougher than real leather and doesn't go limp if it gets wet. With the silicone print on the palms you will be able to keep control of your bike even in really tricky situations.
Do you hate taking off your shoes to get your knee guards off? Then try the K-lite Zip knee guards. The cuff completely surrounds the knee but a zip on the side allows you to remove the guard with just one swift hand movement. Rucksacks and bike accessories complete the ION range.
What else do you need to rock your trails? ION's sure to have it! Functional bike shirts for all weathers, mountain bike shorts that will accompany you on every ride and accessories that look after your safety - all in a wonderfully relaxed style. A whole new experience on your bike with clothes and accessories from ION.
