The Scaphoid Protection SystemSPS

The patented Knox Scaphoid Protection System (SPS) was invented and is owned by Knox worldwide. The technology consists of two low-friction pads positioned on the palm of each riding glove. These allow the palm to slide across the road surface, eliminating the ‘grab’ effect and either compression or hyper-extension of the wrist. Look for the Knox logo on the system and if it doesn’t say Knox it isn’t Scaphoid protection.

Knox SPS was introduced in 2004 and has been patented since 2010.
European Patent No EP1594378. US Patent No US8671463.

Keep doing what you love

Thanks to your Handroid gloves, I came out of a high speed crash with a 300m slide with my hands unscathed.

I still play guitar, go to work and make money to buy motorcycles and enjoy all the things I do because of the work you do!

The effectiveness of the Scaphoid Protection System has been proven time and again on the track.

Slide to safety

The SPS is designed to take the energy from your fall

Unfortunately I suffered a high speed crash at Brandshatch, this is not a place you want to crash.

I had no injurys to my hands what so ever, the gloves showed very little sign of crash damage, and are ready to use again, unlike me, or the bike

Injury to the scaphoid is usually caused by a fall onto an outstretched hand and is common to motorcycling accidents.

Painful, commonly misdiagnosed and notoriously difficult to heal due to the limited blood supply to it, a fractured scaphoid can result in the wrist being placed in plaster for up to 12 weeks.

Can you imagine not being able to grip and the affect on your daily life?

Look for the Knox logo

If it doesn’t say Knox it isn’t Scaphoid protection.

I had a set of Knox gloves on when I got ejected from my bike at 80+ mph 2 days ago. They did their job and definitely saved my hands/fingers.
