IXS

Speed on two wheels: That has been iXS’ core business right from the start. A big name in the world of motorbikes, iXS has become one of the leading manufacturers of sportswear and protective gear for mountain bikers over the last decade. And that is no coincidence: When developing functional bike wear or sturdy protective gear, a close cooperation with a large number of athletes is essential. It’s these athletes who deliver important feedback, thus helping to further improve existing products.

And mind you: Small details can make all the difference out on the trails. The result: Protective gear that you can fully rely on. And technical, functional sportswear tailored from high-tech fabrics and ready to be taken off the beaten paths – be it on long rides or in bike parks. And because looks do matter, iXS adds fresh designs as a lifestyle-related bonus.

DVO Suspension

With over 80 years of accumulated experience in the suspension business, we have seen it all, we’ve seen the mistakes companies make by cutting costs and cutting corners and NOT taking care of the customer. We know first hand that an organization 100% focused on profits is a business plan we DON’T want to be a part of. Great companies are built from the quality and character of the people involved and we have some great people! We have all worked together for decades and we all have the same mindset to produce high quality products with great customer service. We love what we do, its 100% about suspension and enjoying the ride.

Our mindset is only focused on making a high quality, rider made products & excellent customer service. We know what adds up to gizmos and gadgets, adjusters that barely make a difference, product that isn’t fully developed so the rider becomes the test dummy, and customer service that ends at the cash register. That’s why we started DVO Suspension; It’s for riders by riders. DVO is a fully developed product so the customer doesn’t become our beta tester. We know that the cash register is where our customer service begins and standing behind our products is what produces brand loyalty.
