ION launched back in 2004 with the goal of providing high-quality products to the world of water sports. The brand was founded by a group of passionate people whose love was focused around aquatic board sports. ION’s first product offering primarily consisted of wetsuits and neoprene products designed for surfing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, kitesurfing, and stand-up paddle boarding. The range also included harnesses, accessories, travel gear, and branded apparel. Fast forward to 2012 and now ION has expanded into the world of mountain biking. They introduced a range of MTB products with high-quality designs and progressive stylings. The same passion that leads the company to become the global market leader for wetsuits and harnesses in the kitesurfing industry, is now driving the company to produce an incredible offering of mountain bike apparel, protection, footwear, eyewear and accessories for both men and women.
Today ION is run by passionate sports-minded people from all kinds of different sports. They simply love to shred, regardless if it’s on a bike or a board. They share the passion for a feeling called stoke and flow. ION cycling believes that it doesn’t matter if you are a rookie or a pro, a weekend warrior or a seasoned veteran. It only matters that you love the ride. ION’s brand philosophy is as follows, “ION is about challenging yourself, experiencing nature and feeling its force. Therefore ION develops gear that is not only smart and innovative but also transforms this passion into a unique design.” ION creates products that allow their customers to experience and explore the water and mountain bike world with confidence.
At the bottom of every ION product page, we have ION-specific size charts for your convenience. ION’s tops and bottoms size-guides are based on body measurements. ION’s gloves, protection, backpacks, and ION shoe size-guides are based on product measurements. All of ION’s apparel items fall into one of four fit categories.
Tight Fit - Classic athletic aesthetics for minimum wind resistance & maximum speed. Slim Fit - Slim fit, not tight, but cut close to the shape of your body. Regular Fit - Classic boardshorts cut for best possible performance. Loose Fit - Maximum freedom of movement achieved by an almost baggy style cut.
