Men’s Urbane Pro MK2


Colour: Black / Grey
Size Guide

Designed to be worn on its own in hot weather with No Jacket Required, the Urbane Pro Mk2 is the ultimate lightweight, breathable, impact, and abrasion-resistant motorcycle armoured shirt. CE approved as a standalone “Class AA” garment with approved abrasion resistance built in, meaning an outer shell is no longer necessary unless you want to wear one.

The Men’s Urbane Pro Mk2 has taken another huge leap forward in performance for 2021, going from a Class A garment designed for hot weather riding, to the higher-Class AA, which is a class normally reserved for tough textile or leather jackets.

Style Notes

Style Notes

Armoured shirts are at the heart of Knox protective apparel.  They were first invented by the brand in the 1990s and have been a signature style ever since.


Wearing a close-fitting armoured shirt is the best way to protect a rider. It ensures the armour is comfortably held in the right places, rather than it moving around in a loose jacket.

The latest collection of shirts is part of the new Seasonless Collection from Knox.  With Knox, motorcycle apparel is rendered Seasonless.  There is no spring, summer, autumn, or winter wear.  Instead, riders have one hardworking layered ensemble.  This is built with an armoured shirt at its core.  It can then be adapted to suit all weather conditions by either adding or subtracting layers. The Knox Seasonless Collection is adaptable, sustainable, and protective.


The Urbane Pro Mk2 has now become the go-to armoured shirt for riders wanting to keep cool in hot weather but without compromise on protection.  This armoured shirt has been designed to be worn on its own in hot weather. It’s the most versatile, CORE garment for any rider, regardless of what motorcycle they ride. This piece has amazing breathability and impact protection combined with an abrasion resistance, that works at a level never experienced before.  Keeping cool, yet safe is what the Urbane Pro Mk2 delivers to the wearer.


Knox had to start from scratch and develop its own new, tough stretch mesh fabrics for the Urbane Pro Mk2, to be approved as a Class AA garment.  This classification is normally reserved for heavy fabric or leather jackets.  The reassuring technical performance of the armoured shirt adds no extra weight, nor does it come at a loss of breathability.  The shirt remains lightweight, breathable and abrasion resistant, while the wearer enjoys superior stretch comfort.


Constructed with high tenacity stretch nylon, which is combined with newly developed mesh fabrics, allows for flexibility, comfort, and maximum air flow to keep the wearer cool.  Stretch mesh on the forearms and under the arms adds more breathability.  The SMART technology using Micro-Lock armour on the back, shoulders and elbows means that the armour is soft to wear, but locks on impact and therefore absorbs the impact energy before it’s passed to the wearer’s limbs or back.  The Micro-Lock in the shoulders and elbows is CE Approved to EN 1621-1:2012 L1 and the Level 2 back protector is Approved to EN 1621-2: 2014 L2.



The technical CE classification, Class AA garment under the CE standard EN17092, is clearly highlighted on the jacket.  The shirt is practical enough to be worn on its own thanks to it having a zipped chest pocket and two zipped side pockets with YKK zips throughout.  There is a large back pocket big enough to carry a rain jacket along with two convenient interior pockets.  Premium detailing continues with discreet Knox branding on the chest, front hem and back and a new patch on the sleeve highlights Knox’s heritage.  Thumb loops have been added for added security and an improved security belt loop system is highlighted on the inside to ensure riders can secure their trousers to the shirt.


The Urbane Pro Mk2 is available in three colours,

black, black with black denim, and grey on black.

The Urbane Pro Mk2 is available in no fewer than eight sizes from S – 5XL.

Details & Fit

Details & Fit

  • CE approved Class AA garment under the CE standard EN17092. The all-important technical CE classification is highlighted on the jacket.

    The Urbane Pro Shirt is designed to be a close-fitting garment, we recommend visiting the sizing section below and for a comfort fit select the next size up.  Alternatively if you are unsure please email or contact us on our live web chat.


    The elbow, shoulder and back protector armour is all removable.


    Class AA is a certification level which is part of EN17092 – the European standard for motorcycle protective clothing. The garment is tested for dimensional stability, impact energy absorption, impact abrasion resistance, seam strength and structural closure, tear strength, sleeve restraint and finally fit and ergonomics. Of course, the product needs to pass all of these tests to be certified. There are 5 CE levels (AAA, AA, A, B, C) which are all tested differently dependant on the use of the garment (i.e. AA – is a class usually reserved for motorcycle textile suits).


    The main difference is that we have taken a huge step forward in fabric construction with the Mk2.

    The MK2 shirt uses new and exclusive Knox materials that have been engineered for improved abrasion, tear and cut resistance. As a result, we have been able to improve the performance of the Urbane Pro Mk2 and gained a CE classification of AA, which is a standard normally reserved for heavier leather and textile jackets.

    Importantly this has been done without a gain in weight, thickness, and no loss of comfort, or breathability. Other subtle differences include new branding. A Knox badge celebrating Knox’s 40-year heritage, new discreet Class AA branding on the inside and a reinforced security belt loop system on the inside which secures the shirt to a pair of trousers.

      Love my Men’s Urban Pro MK2. I also have a black one that I bought last year. The quality is second to none and the protection of course is too notch. Knox is now my only source for motorcycle protective gear except of course for helmet and boots. Will keep coming back for more.

      Brought a Men’s Urban Pro MK2 from Knox and it was the best decision l have ever made in motorcycle clothing. The quality is way above the concorrence. I am 1.90cm 106kg and brought the 4XL. Have not yet tried it in really hot weather, but the airing is super, so no worries there. If you are looking for an air flowing protective piece of clothing for the summer, that can be worn on colder days under different Jackets with no protective pads, this is what you are looking for! A universal protective layer, for the whole year round.

      I’ve considered getting one of these for a while and decided just before the recent hot spell. It takes time adjusting your mental state to ride in something which seems so lightweight but it has been excellent. I don’t really notice wearing it and it’s been great when stopped or in traffic. I got caught in rain and my hi viz cycling waterproof fitted easily over it and kept me dry. I’m not sure whether I’ll use it when it’s cooler and will possibly go back to leathers but it’s great in the warm. I opted for armour upgrade which seems fine, but I’d rather not test it. I wear an airbag vest over it and again no problems. Quality is great and it should last. I went for grey as it’s a bit cooler in the sun than black and a bit more visible than in brown or green. Pricey comfortable, well made and reassuring. Sizing was good with large being just right with a T shirt under, you’d probably need to size up for anything else but then thats not the point of it.

    Core Knox pieces, used for every ride and every season. Start with core protection and add layers to adapt and overcome all conditions, from unbearable heat through to driving rain.


    The Knox Urbane Pro Shirt has become famous amongst riders and there is one phrase that  captures its USP  – NO JACKET REQUIRED. But what does that really mean?
