Yep, we’re still wading through Eurobike stories, even on the first day of the Interbike show in Las Vegas… Jessica Stein has a quick look at action clothing brand, ION.
First off, you know when you’re at the top of a downhill and you reckon you should put on your knee pads? Most of the time, you need to hop around with your shoe off while you slide them on, inevitably getting a wet sock… well, wet socks begone!
And now a solution to something that doesn’t happen too much in the UK, but anyone travelling to hotter climes will appreciate. This is a chunky sized rucksack, with built-in back protector. The design means that only your shoulder blades and hips contact the back of the pack to keep things reasonably cool. But what about that three hour Lake Garda climb that you’re going to have to endure in the noonday sun? Ahah!
ION makes a wide range of highly-regarded clothing too. Everything from full-on downhill gear to lighter, trail clothing and casual stuff too.
