New from Knox and made in Britain

Filed under: News,Product News,Shows |


Knox will unveil their 2013 collection at Motorcycle Live (Hall 3A – 3K15) and the good news for the British economy is that 89% of the impact protection range will be made in the UK at their Cumbrian factory.

One of the latest products to be designed is the Urbane Shirt, which provides complete upper body protection, but with a classic look. The Urbane has been designed in direct response to rider feedback on the award-winning Venture shirt.  Incorporating CE-approved protectors in the shoulders, elbows and back, secured in a strong mesh shirt with leather detailing, the Urbane is ideal for riders who prefer to wear a classic or vintage jacket that doesn’t have in-built armour.

Protection is assured by Knox Lite + protectors, which have in-built memory so they are soft, flexible and stable in changing climate conditions.  Stretch patches on the shoulders and elbows keep them securely in place without restricting the wearer. The lightweight and breathable back protector is approved to EN1621-2 Level 1.  All armour is fitted into pockets so it can be removed for washing and a CE-approved chest protector can be added as an optional extra. There’s even a handy chest pocket.
