We at ION believe there’s more to a good bike shoe than just grip. That’s why we focus on the Concept of Control, mixing grip, protective elements, and a sport seat feeling into stylish & technical mountain bike kicks. Most of the time, your preferred bike pedals (flat or click) determine what kind of shoe you need. Let us take you from there – there’s more to discover!
