In line with the EN17092 standard the Urbane Pro Shirt features thumb loops to ensure correct fitment to the arm and to mitigate the garment moving/sliding during a fall.

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.
