British firm Knox has just released details of the third incarnation of its excellent Handroid glove.

For 2016 the Handroid gets box seams and accordion stretch panels on the fingers, extra Kangaroo leather on the palm and a leather shield over the BOA closure system straps.

Protection, re-engineered:

Protection remains at the core of the Handroid design, so it carries full CE certification to the latest EN13594 standard for motorcycle gloves. To qualify, the Handroid was subjected to 15 separate tests, assessing material content, sizing, dexterity, seam strength, cut resistance, abrasion resistance and impact testing.

Improving protection further still, for 2016 ‘box’ seams now replace the previous pinch seams on the fingers, and the joins are now set between the fingers, to make the fingertip section stronger and more comfortable.
