Knox-armoured-shirt

Designed as an interchangeable layer to be worn under a jacket from the Knox Studio collection, the stretch elastane shirt contains Knox Lite CE approved body armour on the shoulders, elbows and has a Knox CE approved back protector level one fitted as standard. There’s a full length YKK zip all the way up the front to make it easy to get on and off.

I’m super safety conscious and like to be well protected on the bike, so I wasn’t sure if I’d feel protected in an item like this – but I did. I tried it wearing the provided back protector but found I preferred to wear my separate standalone Knox protector as I was used to it. It’s specifically designed for females and as result it fits comfortably – the armour sits nicely and I was confident that it would stay in place in the event of an accident.

All the armour can easily be removed so that you can wash the shirt which helps keep it fresh and there’s a useful front pocket for smaller items, such as cash. I like the styling touches including grey textured mesh on the collar, cuffs and waistband too.

It fits brilliantly with the other items, which all work together seamlessly. I’ve worn it with a long sleeved base layer and with a vest top and it has been fine – thanks to the flatlocked seams there were no scratchy areas digging in.

It’s priced at just under £100 and is available in size 8-18 (XS-XXL). It’s a great addition to my riding gear.
