Base layers are great for year-round riding. They help keep you warm when it’s cold, and they wick away moisture when it’s hot. Now, iXS has tossed in a new feature – flame-retardancy.

Flame resistant high-performance functional underwear
Frictional heat no – warmth yes
New standards are being set by iXS in terms of motorbike underwear with the Underwear Shirt & Pants Flame. The newly developed, flame resistant material protects the skin against burns through burnt-in fabric. It is breathable, absorbs perspiration and feels naturally soft because of the high viscose content.
New benchmarks are being set with the new, flame resistant, all-year-round material mix of the iXS Flame underwear. The iXS Underwear Flame creates a flame resistant intermediate layer to sensitive skin to prevent the melting of the upper clothing fabric or lining – either through frictional heat or through contact with the exhaust. With its incorporated aramid, the material is also hard-wearing, abrasion resistant and protects against cuts.
The seamless design has a soft, pleasant feel on the skin and will impress you with its noticeable moisture management through fast moisture removal and great drying. The underwear prevents your jacket and trousers sticking damply to your skin and also serves as an additional layer for movement. This protects the skin against undesired forces and supports the rapid reduction in energy.
The functional clothing is extremely pleasant to wear because of the high viscose content. Viscose combines the positive features of cotton, silk and synthetic fibres. As it feels naturally soft, is breathable, but does not pill or rub off, viscose is extremely well suited as a base layer of clothing. The fibres are also very light and yet robust and absorbent.
Thanks to the ergonomic fit and the extremely stretchable material, the shirt and trousers hug the body perfectly and there will be no annoying creases. The two sizes available, namely M/L and XL/2XL, are therefore sufficient to cover a wide range of different body sizes. The discrete design goes with a lot of motorbike clothing and when you have a break in an ice café, you can easily wear the top part on its own without any problems.
