2018 award winner

Design & Innovation Award 2018

iXS’s newly launched protectors of Evo+ series have been awarded with the industry “Design & Innovation Award 2018”.


Carve Evo+ knee guard

Just when you think a former test winner can’t get any better, iXS introduce the reworked FLOW Evo+ kneepads and exceed expectations once more. Their latest model is an elevated take on the former one, deploying refined materials that further improve the ventilation and comfort of these protectors. Lightweight and well constructed, these knee protectors meet the stringent EN1621-1 certification for protection while still keeping a low weight. Thanks to their compact, barely-there design with flexible Xmatter padding, they cling comfortably to your knee like a second skin. They are so inconspicuous, in fact, that you forget you’re wearing them even while pedalling for long stretches. It all goes back to the great fit and silicone grippers that keep these worthy protectors in their tip-top position.

Trigger upper protective

iXS have an unmatched position in the industry when it comes to developing com­fortable protectors. The Trigger Upper Protector Jersey is no exception, and it’s easily the most comfortable vest on the market right now. With flexible Xmatter protective inserts that fit snugly against your back, the design deploys stretchy materials in strategic positions – even the zip. The fit is faultless, and it’s unob-trusive to wear while riding. It also goes beyond the protective and doubles as a baselayer with functional materials. All of the protective inserts can be removed, so versatility and multi-purpose are the keywords that define this product. If any­thing, the Trigger Upper Protector Jersey confirms that no one need look like a medieval knight going into battle any longer.
