Montevideo-ST acclaimed as test winner by MOTORRAD

Quality is rewarded. For 40 years, iXS products are convincing, particularly with regard to numerous product tests and even have won several prizes. We are glad that with the textile suit Montevideo-ST we now have another winner in our product range. Tour LT Jacket and Pants Montevideo-ST were honoured by the „MOTORRAD Testsieger“ award (MOTORRAD Edition N° 22, dated Oct 12, 2018).


Conclusion of the MOTORRAD tester: “A real all-weather suit in a classic design for a very reasonable price. The iXS suit is made of a relatively simple construction where functionality and practical details convincing all along the line. Ideal choice for motorcycle touring riders which prefer an upright riding position.”


On a large, 10-day round-trip of 4’000 kilometres to Corsica, six touring suits of different producers have been thoroughly tested down to the last detail by MOTORRAD. Finally, the Tour LT combination Montevideo-ST was the only suit who was rated "very good". “iXS offers a very good overall package at a fair price – reason enough to become test victory.”


The high protection from the weather received a positive rating. Thanks to the durable solto-TEX® membrane, the iXS combination fulfils this task with flying colours. Under real conditions, the tester always stayed dry. As additional advantages, the separately wearable quilted inner jacket, which performs well during cold conditions, and the large ventilation openings, which help to improve air circulation, were mentioned.


Especially as regards safety, the iXS textile suit was able to convincingly demonstrate that the protection level is on a high level: “At that attractive price iXS has integrated a considerable protection package. Also the back part is fully protected.” Regarding features and workmanship there was nothing to criticize: „manufactured cleanly and to a high quality standard”, was the test verdict.


We would be glad to hear further constructive suggestions and user feedbacks. Continuous ratings from our customers lead to the ongoing development and improvement of our products.
