HANDROID – THE ICONIC GLOVE
The Handroid has been the Pinnacle of the Knox Hand Armour collection since 2010, and the 4th generation Mk4 is still the ultimate in motorcycle sports design.
The Handroid never fails to impress or turn heads. Whether that’s on the latest “Dark Side of Japan – Yamaha MT 09” campaign film, lining up on the grid at race or track days or pulling up at a biker meet.
But it’s never been about design over function. With an 11 year history, riders still agree and it’s the best and voted it The Best Summer Glove in a recent poll of over 1000 motorcyclists, due to its confidence inspiring safety features. (Bike Social Sept 2021).
TRUST EARNED THE HARD WAY
The Handroid has become the “go to” glove for racers and track day riders alike. With countless “Tried and Tested” testimonials, the out and out performance of the Knox Handroid is inspiring.
Protective credentials include the exo skeleton finger spines, the metapod section on the back of the hand that covers the metacarpals, the secure wrist shroud and Boa closure system that extends above the wrist and not forgetting the SPS protecting the scaphoid. With all these features it’s easy to think that dexterity would be compromised but that couldn’t be further from the truth! The Handroid delivers an amazing level of feeling and dexterity that belies its protective credentials and makes it the obvious choice of road and track riders.
THE HANDROID POD’S POPULARITY AMONGST ROAD RIDERS GROWS EVERY YEAR.
The same painstaking creation process goes into designing and making the short cuff POD. It also incorporates a lower profile BOA wrist closure system that can easily fit under or over a jacket sleeve.
DIAL INTO RACE MODE
Wearing Knox Handroids is a part of your race ready routine. From the preparation of packing them into your kit bag, through to dialling in the Boa wrist closure before you go out on track. The Boa wrist closure system provides a micro adjustable fit that enables a perfect fit on every ride. Constructed from aircraft grade stainless steel and with a lifetime guarantee, the Boa system is as tough and smart.
SCAPHOID SAVING TECHNOLOGY
SUM OF ALL PARTS
There are no cutting corners on a Handroid. From the choice of materials to the traditional glove making methods employed.
In the manufacturing process, Handroids are painstakingly sewn together using a blend of modern and traditional methods, by the same trusted factory we used since the beginning.
Made using a combination of the finest sustainably sourced Australian Kangaroo leather, from the Packer family who have been in business since 1891, and Korean drum dyed cowhide in 4 distinctive colours.
Knox MicroLock technology is used in the knuckle and under the SPS for added impact absorption.
All plastic components are of a superior grade and achieve impressive levels of abrasion performance, durability, and consistency.
