    I purchased these gloves because, in the California summer heat my Knox Handroid Pod MK4s were hot and bulky. Perfect for three-season riding, but I needed a summer glove and wanted ventilation and scaphoid protection. I've worn these twice in 80+F (27+ C) heat, and they've handled themselves perfectly both times. My hands aren't sweltering while I ride for hours, despite the heat and direct sunshine. One note: The photos make the gloves look brownish, but they're black, as advertised. Great purchase!

    I used to wear a size M gloves but I find it quite fit on my hands. Orsa MK2 size L is the perfect size for me, all smiles the first time I slid my hands in it. It's very comfortable and the Boa system is a big plus. Thanks to all the great people (and innovators) behind Knox. I'm your #2 fan. =)

    Having owned a pair of Handroids for some years I wanted a similar glove but lighter and more suitable for summer. These definitely fit the bill. The fit is excellent and the glove much more comfortable from the start than the Handroids which took some breaking in. The closure on these is simple and can be done with a gloved hand - essential really! Riding on warm days my hands don't feel hot even behind the huge RT fairing. Unless it rains, they are now my go-to glove and I would recommend them 100%

    I’ve owned the Orsa MKII for about 18 months now and they are my favourite 3 season glove. I love the black and white colour way, the boa system is better than Velcro, and the SPS gives me confidence. I did have a low speed tumble on dirt (I’m a dual sport rider) and landed on my palms. No sliding occurred because of the dirt but the gloves did absorb the impact anyway. No harm occurred to gloves or me.



    One improvement I’d like to see is a double layer of leather on the outside of the little finger. It’s a high abrasion zone and needs extra leather there. I’d add it myself but gloves are really hard to modify.

    Dear Knox. I bought online because there’s no retailer nearby me in either Switzerland, Germany or France. And your site has no link to search. I see I still paid UK tax despite me not living in UK plus duties in my country. I like your product very much and would like to buy more from you but with this experience it is not easy! Can you do something about it?

    These gloves define the phrase "Fits Like a Glove"! I have Large hands for being only 166 cm tall (or short), and have had several pairs of gloves from ICON to DAINESE, and never had a better fitting glove.

    Putting the glove on is a little hard, maybe because they're new, but that's not a big deal, but once the glove is on- it fits amazing.

    the leather is very soft and seems very durable. The gloves are of a very high quality. The conducting index finger tips are a great feature as well.

    Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the gloves, and hopefully I (or anyone for that matter) will ever have the need to experience the protection they provide, but I am confident that these gloves will do a great job in a crash situation. Great job, KNOX!!!! Thank you!

    I love Knox! I'm a big big fan of your ORSA MX and I recently lost one half of my ORSA Leather MK1 gloves - The ORSA Leather MK1 broke in really nicely after being drenched by rain a few times and drying - the leather became more supple and comfortable with use until it felt as good as the ORSA MX.

    I tried on a set of MK1 Orsas in a shop and loved them, and the MK2 is everything the MK1 is, but comfier. The knuckle protectors, scaphoid protection system and hard finger protection combined with the extra layers of goat and cow hide for abrasion resistance give this better protection than gloves even well above this price range.

    Also very happy with the speedy delivery and service from knox, will look to knox first if and when I need anything else in the future.

    Amazing gloves, took the advice on the sizing chart to get one larger than expected and it worked out perfectly. I hope I don't end up needing the palm sliders on the gloves but I'm super glad that feature is there. I couldn't find that in most other gloves and especially not in the same price range.

    I used to wear the off-road version, which I really liked, until I got ticked off by a Knox employee at the NEC show for wearing them on the road! Bought these on the spot, and love them - it has to be seriously cold before I abandon these for the winter gloves. So easy to put on, adjust and get under the jacket sleeve, great feel and comfort on the bike, and no fear that they'll come off if I threw the bike down the road.

    I was supplied these gloves directly by Knox. No problems with the mailing process, I was well informed and the delivery was quick. The gloves are high quality, fit and finish as expected. The Boa system is excellent. Suggested improvements - An extra layer of leather is needed down the blade of the hand and extending over the pinkie finger. Also additional thumb protection is needed as there's none. The provided bag for the gloves was a classy addition.

    After our accident at the Isle of Man TT last year you kindly provided us with Knox back protectors and gloves which we have found to be excellent. As you know I nearly lost my hand in the accident and have had numerous operations to get my hand back to normality. With the help of the Knox extra protection gloves I found I was able to return to racing much quicker and I must say your products are the best in the business. The gloves and also back protectors have really made a difference to our performance and I would recommend Knox products to anyone.

They were just a little tight when I first got them, but after about two weeks they are fitting great. I really like the boa wrist adjustment. Way better than the velcro that was on my other gloves.

Technical Information

Knox SPS

Scaphoid injury is the most common hand injury caused by the grab effect when the palm of the hand makes contact with the ground.

The Knox SPS works by attaching 2 parts to the palm of the glove, making a bridge over the scaphoid. These plastic parts act as a slider eliminating the grab effect and scaphoid injuries. This has proven to be a very effective system for riders with no loss of flexibility, discomfort or interference with the controls when operating the bike.

Knox SPS is patented technology under the following Patents No: EP1594378 & US8671463

BOA® Fit System

The BOA® Fit System ensures a precise fit around the whole cuff and allows fast, effortless adjustment on the go. The wrist system acts as an external brace and tightens the gauntlet equally from all sides. All you have to do is dial in the right torque for you. To release simply pull the dial.

Honeycomb Knuckle

Honeycomb Gel over a floating knuckle area backed with memory foam, encapsulated in a strong outer shell to absorb impact.

Goat Skin Palm

Strong Goat skin palm with a soft memory foam double layer on high wear areas.

Touchscreen Technology

Touch Screen technology on the index finger.

Palm Circumference (A): Palm circumference is the total measurement around the widest part of the palm and over the knuckles. Put the tape around your palm and make a fist, then note the measurement.

Hand Length (B): Measure from your wrist crease to the end of your middle finger.

Measure your hand length and width and choose size the closest to your measurements. This should fit your hand correctly. If your hand fits one measure but not the 2nd, or if you prefer a loser fit, we would advise choosing the next size up.
