Knox launches new UK-designed products at Motorcycle Live
Knox will unveil new additions to their Studio Collection at Motorcycle Live (Stand 3C05). Designed in Knox’s London design studio, the new lines for 2016 complement the current range of jackets from Knox.
This what the guys from Knox say will be launching at the NEC:
KNOX Studio Denim Jeans – Not your average denim
Knox denim jeans from the Studio Collection may look like regular jeans but they are made from Cordura® Denim – 4 times strong than traditional cotton denim fabric, but just as comfortable.
They are carefully tailored for a perfect fit on and off the bike.
Styles for men and women combine tough durable Cordura® denim with the highest abrasion-resistant linings and Knox CE protection, without compromising on style.
Richmond jeans for men and Roseberry jeans for women have a soft Dupont Kevlar® lining and Knox® CE armour at knees and hips, to deliver all you would expect from a favourite pair of jeans, but built for motorcycling.
Meanwhile the Buxton jeans for men and Brooke jeans for women are reinforced with a Spectra® lining for maximum abrasion resistance. Spectra is stronger than steel and 40% stronger than aramid fibres like Kevlar.
All feature a smart system that holds the CE protector against the knee when riding, and the armour pocket height is adjustable, for a perfect fit and position.
The knee armour can be accessed from the outside through a concealed zip, so it can be removed in seconds, for all day comfort off the bike.
All Knox Studio denim jeans are available in a choice of blue or black. Leg length is 33” for men in sizes S-3XL and 32” for women in sizes 8-18. Prices from £129.99 including VAT.
Knox even offer an alteration service for shortening the jeans.
Knox Zephyr Jacket for Men and Women – Designed to keep you Cool and Safe
Designed specifically for summer riding, the Zephyr is a stylish, tough and highly breathable fully armoured motorcycle jacket. Made by Knox in the UK.
The Zephyr gives the wearer freedom to ride confidently and comfortably in warmer climates, knowing they are protected.
Made from strong British arrownet mesh fabric for comfort and flexibility, the Zephyr has high tenacity breathable stretch nylon on the shoulders, sleeves and across the top of the back, for superior abrasion resistance.
Fitted with Knox CE armour in the shoulder, elbows and back, all of which are held comfortably in the right place so, if needed, they’re exactly where they need to be.
The men’s jacket has a concealed zipped rear storage pocket at the back and 2 front pockets, as well as the option to add a Knox CE chest protector. The women’s version has a belt and two front waist pockets.
Both are machine washable, once protectors are removed, and come in seven sizes. Retail price is £199.99 including VAT.
There is an optional waterproof rain jacket that can be purchased to fit over the Zephyr.
Knox Defender Elite – The Highest Performance Armoured Shirt
The result of valuable feedback from riders who wanted all the benefits of a Knox armoured shirt, but with extra impact protection on the shoulders, elbows, chest and lower back, the Defender Elite is a highly breathable armoured shirt, perfectly suited for either ON- or OFF-Road riding.
Fitted with CE approved Level 2 armour at shoulders and elbows, the Defender Elite has the added benefits of a full length Aegis Level 2 back protector and a lightweight CE chest protector. Unlike any other garment of this type, the shirt can be zipped from the back protector and machine-washed, keeping it fresh and clean throughout the riding season.
Made by Knox in the UK and designed to be worn under suitable clothing, this durable and versatile garment has tough abrasion resistant 2-way stretch panels on the shoulders and elbows, with British arrownet mesh front and back and moisture-wicking Italian Carvico bi-elastic micro-mesh on the sleeves and side panels, to prevent irritation and itchiness during active sports.
The Knox Defender Elite armoured shirt comes in sizes S – 3XL and sells for £249.99 including VAT.
Knox Studio Rucksack
This stylish waterproof, roll top rucksack is made from tough 600 denier nylon and leather, with a generous 25-litre capacity.
The main body is 100% waterproof – the exterior is tough and durable PU-backed 600 denier nylon, with an interior lining that has fully taped seams to keep the water out.
There are also three water-resistant deep and zipped outer pockets for extra storage.
Strong and luxurious leather is used on the base of the bag and for the carry handle, with chrome side release buckles to add an extra touch of class.
Fully adjustable padded shoulder straps, plus adjustable waist and chest straps, aid comfort and security when riding.
Dual spacer fabric panels on the back enhance both comfort and air flow.
There is even a handy helmet carrier strap for use off the bike. Price £59.99 including VAT.
