Born in Italy
SIXS was born in Bagnara di Romagna, Italy a region obsessed with textiles, sport and style. An overwhelming love for sports and an in-depth knowledge of textile technologies combined together to give rise to the company.
In 2009 after exensive research and development we patented an extremely innovative fabric that is a world first in its superior wicking abilities. A fabric that interacts with the human body, that is not a barrier, but rather a second skin able to ensure proper thermoregulation and manage sweat wicking. Our patented carbon weaving effectively wicks moisture away from the skin to the outer layer of fabric to ensure you stay comfortable and perform to your maximum capabilities.
Our garments are proudly Made in Italy.

SIXS is proud to partner with Lotto Soudal and Deceuninck - Quick Step, providing these World Tour teams with our uniquely patented technical base layers. As such, SIXS is put to the test by the toughest customers a product can face.
It’s a great honour to dress riders like Caleb Ewan and Mark Cavedish, yet it’s also a responsibility to dress sportsmen of such calibre.
Every day these professional athletes demand ultimate performance from their apparel. The importance of reducing a bike’s weight is underlined by methods such as filing surfaces, choosing new materials and designing ever more aerodynamic geometry. The same applies to the apparel a professional cyclist wears.
Could the performance of base layers be decisive?
Well, when it comes to shaving off grams from a wheel set or seat post, the informed choice of clothing is a must! When competing and performing under strenuous effort, wearing under garments that are not only lighter, but also comfortable whilst riding, is undoubtedly advantageous.
That’s why the synergetic collaboration between SIXS and these great and successful teams of recent years has continued through several seasons!

The Secret Lies in the Fabric
The configuration of the fabric allows sweat to be effectively drawn away from the skin to the outer layer of the fabric.
- the skin remains dry
- the formation of bacteria and bad odours are eliminated
- the garment dries quickly after washing
The patented SIXS weave and the polypropylene found in our fabric create a perfect combination. With a lower liquid absorption rate and a greater water vapor permeability than other textile fibres.
Constant Thermo Insulation
Thanks to its blend of textile fibres, the Carbon Underwear® fabric is just like a breathable barrier that keeps the body temperature constant under all weather conditions.
The fabric does not absorb sweat, but rather carries it to the outside so that the skin is left dry. The garments dry quickly after being washed.
Light as a Feather
The Carbon Underwear® fabric has the lowest specific weight of all textile fibers on the market.
Because of its conductivity, the fiber absorbs and disperses electric charges accumulated from the environment or during physical exercise.
Because it respects the skin and protects it from bacteria and pollutant dusts: the Carbon Underwear® fabric has properties that eliminate the risk of annoying allergies, reduce the proliferation of bacteria and the procreation of bad smells.
