40 years of passion & perfect fit
1979 to 2019 – and it’s more than just a significant birthday, which the iXS brand is celebrating. Behind it lie 40 years of passion, work, development and experience. Because motorbiking is associated with so many emotions – whether it’s in racing or everyday riding, iXS is part of a large number of experiences, which remain absolutely memorable.
2019 is a very special year for iXS: The Swiss brand that was established in 1979 is celebrating its 40th anniversary. SWISS-MOTO on home soil provided the ideal setting to celebrate this significant birthday in style. Legendary stories and exhibits worth seeing ranging from 1979 to the present day gave an insight into the rich iXS racing history and the rapid technical development of motorbike clothing.
The iXS brand has always had a passionate presence on racing tracks throughout the world since its early years. A large number of national and international successes have resulted from its close association with motorbike racing – whether on a circular track, in the desert, on ice or in road racing. Anselm Zessler, Managing Director of iXS expresses it like this: “iXS has grown as a result of the passion and enthusiasm of very special people.”
Racing greats such as Dominique Aegerter (moto2 winner), Randy Krummenacher (World SSP winner), Horst Saiger (Road Racing Champion), “Bad Boy” Dani Müller (4x Supermoto Swiss champion), Rolf Biland & Kurt Waltisperg (7x side-car world championship title), and teams like the Wilvo Yamaha Team (MXGP) or Team Bolliger (Long distance world champions) are still part of the iXS racing family today.
And iXS customers are also among the winners because they can benefit from the successes in races. Traditionally iXS uses motorbike racing to develop and test new technologies and incorporates the know-how it acquires to make series products even safer, even more efficient and even longer lasting. The iXS products have established themselves on the world’s motorbike clothing markets with many innovations, high-tech materials and creative designs.
Since 1979, after entering the market with a small collection of leather clothing, iXS has grown continuously and is now one of the world’s leading brands in the motorbike clothing sector. The range now includes 210 products with an enormous range of colours and sizes, covering the segments of Racing & Sport, Adventure & Touring, Classic & Vintage, Urban & City as well as Motocross. Following its “perfect fit” philosophy, iXS offers an excellent fit, range of sizes and comfort.
With its attractive collection, which is certified in line with the latest CE standards, iXS considers itself to be well equipped to continue playing a leading role in the highly competitive motorbike clothing market in the future. There are now 72 employees who work at full throttle every day so that the iXS brand is always moving forwards and continues to trigger enthusiasm as a trendsetter.
Right on time for the 40th birthday iXS issued an anniversary catalog, which can be looked through online.
