At ORBO we have tried just about every set of gear that available for cycling - and there is a lot that we love. Design and styling, as well as brand identity are the biggest differentiators in general, but there are some brands doing things a bit differently, which is where IXS comes in.
Whether its for clothing for mountain bike (downhill MTB, enduro MTB, trail or xc), gravel riding, or bike packing we think there are four main reasons to select gear. And these reasons are why we chose IXS clothing for Australian riders - whether its a jersey, shorts, pants or gloves. Check the full collection here.
The biggest difference with IXS compared to other mainstream brands is their focus on sustainability. Their cycling clothes are made with recycled material as much as possible - most jerseys are recycled plastic bottles! They are also founding members of the Earthball Riders - an industry group established to improve the environmental performance of the cycling industry.
In Australia, comfort is critical. The weather is extreme, from the dry heat of Perth, the tropical heat of Cairns, the variability of Weather in Melbourne and those hot summers days in Sydney. And winter everywhere is cold! Your riding gear needs to accommodate this. IXS clothing ranges from use in colder winter months, to lightweight summer gear. Most of the ORBO crew ride in Sydney, Melbourne and PErth and wear IXS all year round comfrotably.
Style is personal, and we love the IXS range for its subtle and understated looks. Jerseys, jackets and shorts can be worn straight to lunch or to the shops after a ride. There are still racer options for those wanting to look more factory, and for downhill and BMX racing!
We believe cycling clothing should represent great value. At ORBO we only sell products that we think are great value - and IXS fits the bill. With prices below most brands, and the comfort of knowing that you are doing your bit for the environment as well - the choice is easy. In fact we think these is the best value gear for mountain bike, gravel riding, cyclocross or bikepacking.
Whether its for clothing for mountain bike, gravel riding, or bike packing in Australia we think the sustainability, comfort, styling and value of IXS Sports should see you put it on the top of your list for your next outfit - whether its a jersey, shorts, pants or gloves.
