Max Dual Active Base Layer


Size Guide

The MAX is a men’s long sleeve top and is part of the Knox Dry Inside Dual Active Base Layer Collection. It is a sports fit, cut for maximum performance.

The Melange fabric is finished with HYDROCOOL® and SILVERPLUS® for enhanced wicking, drying and anti-bacterial properties.  The result is an extremely comfortable, close fitting base layer with impressive levels of breathability, moisture management, odour resistance and overall comfort for the active wearer.

Style Notes

Style Notes

Adding a performance first layer to your Seasonless ensemble makes a huge difference to comfort.  The Max Long Sleeved Top is designed to keep the rider cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  This is due to the clever use of a soft Melange fabric with technical finishes, Hydrocool® and Silverplus® which give the top enhanced wicking and drying properties, while also providing antibacterial protection.  The result is a next to skin level of comfort that is second to none.


This soft Melange fabric allows an armoured shirt or jacket to simply slide on and off and it stops any sticky unpleasantness in the heat, thus allowing the wearer to get on with the pleasant business of riding a motorcycle without distraction.  Even the seams are flat locked for comfort which is complemented by the Max’s relaxed sports cut.  Like the rest of the active base layers in the range this is machine washable and dries quickly.

The men’s cut is available in six sizes, from S – 3XL

    A comfortable and well sized garment, ideal for under my Honister jacket during the 'warmer' months. Not owned it long enought to give a living with review.

    Have purchased several Knox items. Quality excellent. Living close by Cocker mouth, I was able to visit shop directly. Keep up the innovations and advancements in protective motorcycle gear.

    A good set of Base Layers

    As per Riche’s comment, I have owned a set of Max Duel Active Base Layers for almost a year. An average amount of use, let’s say on average eight days a month over nine months of the year. Merino base layers are normally used December to March. The overlock stitching is coming away which is a pity as otherwise the garments are great and very comfortable. I take two sets on a tour and a set will easily dry overnight after being washed out.

    Great base layer, light, and comfortable and just right when moving out of my Merino layers after winter. Only four stars as after a year of ownership with moderate use. The overlock stitching at the rear of the waistband is coming adrift.
