SWISS-MOTO 2019: «Here we go!»

Two wheels, one passion

Over the weekend from 21 to 24 February 2019, Zurich became a real biker capital. More than 70,000 visitors made their way to SWISS-MOTO, the biggest meeting place of the Swiss motorcycle industry to celebrate the start into the new motorcycle season. The focus was on the latest motorcycles, on innovative motorcycle accessories and the clothing section as well as on spectacular action.


The motorcycle enthusiasts took the opportunity to learn about the wide range of clothing and accessories and to try on the right equipment for the upcoming motorcycle season. Just like the two-wheelers, motorcycle clothing featured lifestyle, retro design, high functionality and an individual outfit.


Montevideo concept

The highlight at the iXS booth was the Montevideo concept - a jacket and trouser system as a perfect companion for every adventure. The Montevideo concept has already received several awards, including the coveted «MOTORRAD Test Winner» test seal. On a large, 10-day and 4,000-kilometer cruise around Corsica, MOTORRAD put six textile-touring suits through their paces. Ultimately, the tour combination Montevideo of iXS was the only one with judgment «very good».


Positive was the overall weather protection. In warm temperatures, a large-area ventilation system in the chest and back area with various air inlets and adjustment options ensures the desired fresh air supply. The iXS textile suit has also convinced in terms of safety. Full variability without safety limitations.


RS-1000 concept

Another attraction at the iXS booth was the innovative RS-1000 concept with the interchangeable, colored hard shell parts. The RS-1000 slider parts, manufactured by using lightweight technology, were originally developed for racers and had been extensively tested under the toughest racing conditions. iXS now uses this concept in addition to sports and racing products as well as touring and adventure products.


New CE standards

The newly introduced CE standards for motorcycle clothing provided a topic of conversation. Here, iXS is on the safe side and already meets all requirements with the 2019 collection. All new iXS products have been certified to the latest safety standards for motorcycle clothing and are CE labelled.


Entry of the iXS racing heroes - with interviews and autograph sessions

The iXS booth also offered plenty of action. With their ride to the Starting Grid and the following interviews, iXS racers Dominique Aegerter, Horst Saiger, Robin Mulhauser, Dominic Schmitter, Max Neukirchner, Marcel Brenner, Marvin Fritz and Dani Müller present themselves with a loud performance and fulfilled all autograph and photo requests.
