Knox Buxton jeans with Spectra

The Knox Buxton and Brooke denim jeans are made from Cordura® Denim and are lined with a unique highly abrasion resistant fabric called Spectra®, which is one of the world’s strongest and lightest fibres. Made from UHMwPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene), it’s 15 times stronger than steel and 40% tougher than aramid fibres, yet is still extremely light and very flexible.

  • Made from 12oz Cordura® denim – 4 x stronger than traditional denim
  • Lined with Spectra® – 15 x stronger than steel
  • Knox Lite Plus knee and hip CE protectors supplied as standard
  • Precision knee fit and invisible armour pockets with external access for easy removal
  • Tailored in the Knox London Design Studio for a perfect fit on and off the bike
  • YKK Zips® used throughout

With a contemporary design that gives a stylish look and feel, the new Knox Buxton and Brooke jeans are made from a fabric that’s 4 x stronger than traditional denim which results in superior wear. Produced in designs for men & women, they offer the perfect blend of substance and style for riders who want to look good and stay safe.
For absolute peace of mind on the bike, both the men’s Buxton and women’s Brooke feature two layers of abrasion protection: 12oz Cordura® denim fabric – four times stronger than traditional denim – on the outside, plus a Spectra® lining inside.

Spectra® is used in numerous high-performance applications, including ballistic-resistant vests, safety helmets, marine cordage, lifting slings and cut-resistant gloves. The Buxton and Brooke are the first motorcycle jeans to be lined with Spectra®.

In addition to the abrasion protection, Knox Lite Plus knee and hip protectors are supplied with the jeans as standard, to guard against impact. Both the Buxton and Brooke feature a smart system that holds the knee protectors comfortably in position when riding.

A unique feature of the Studio Denim collection is the ability to gain access to the knee armour from the outside, using a discreet zip, so it can be removed without removing the jeans completely or pulling the protectors from the lining. It also means there are no fasteners inside the jeans, which might irritate the legs.

Carefully tailored in the Knox London Design Studio, these denims are styled to fit, feel and look like high end fashion jeans. Both styles come in classic blue, with subtle detailing and logos. Extra care is taken in the construction to avoid bulky exterior seams, so the wearer feels just as comfortable and confident off the bike as they are on it.

Buxton jeans come in men’s sizes S-3XL with an inside leg of 33 inches; the ladies Brooke version in sizes 8-18, with a 32-inch leg. An alteration service is available for shortening the jeans. Prices start from £199 including VAT.
