Style Notes

Style Notes

This CE level 2 back protector is worn in its own gilet.  The Track Vest is the first choice of and worn by a host of Knox Athletes.  The zip on/ zip off gilet allows it to be held perfectly in place without the need for straps.  The Knox Track Vest utilises the best-selling Aegis back protector.  It’s easy and incredibly comfortable to wear. Designed for the active rider across a range of disciplines, that demand the best performance while delivering a high level of comfort, without restricting movement.

The gilet is low profile and can be zipped off the back protector to allow for machine washing.  It also benefits from Knox technology that allows it to remain breathable and moisture-wicking.  This is achieved by working with raised channels and vents in the Aegis back protector and helps to keep the wearer cool while preventing the build-up of perspiration.

A CE Approved chest protector can be added as an optional extra under the soft padded, ventilated chest in the Track Vest.  The fabric itself features a four way stretch breathable mesh construction.  This, in turn, is combined with cool wicking British Meryl Lycra that is fast drying and allows for frequent machine washing.

The Track Vest also allows for full movement even in a tight racing suit.  All of the zips are by YKK, and the Aegis back protector has been tested to +40C and -20C.  This makes it suitable for use at extreme temperatures.

Thanks to extensive testing and careful development it is CE certified to the Motorcycle Back Protector EN1621-2:2014 Level 2.  The Track vest is available in sizes from S  – 2XL and comes in a grey on black colour scheme.

    The track vest is very good and very comfortable while on, with the zip instead of straps it sits nicer in the leathers and fits more comfortably

  2. John Burrows

    The Track Vest’s the best piece of kit I’ve ever owned, being as it zips up and the back protector hugs your spine really well. John Burrows, leading national road racer.

    Amazing piece of kit, better than expected

    Received my track vest today, from opening the postage bag it was clear I had a great product inside. Presented in its own knox sack the vest just screamed class and quality, once on the vest hugs your body comfortably with the waistband adjustment helping to keep the back protector in place. The vest features additional padding in the chest also giving it a stab vest look.
    Light, airy and incredibly comfortable with an amazing level of protection I hope not to have to test, but I’m confident if it’s as good as it looks I’ll be fine.

    Really nicely made, holds the protector in the right place


    Nice product

    This Knox Trackvest for me is the best out there. It does not restrict my movement and is extremely comfortable under my leathers. I have found traditional back protectors which have a waist strap dig into my stomach when tucking in on a straight, where I don’t have this problem with the Knox Trackvest. I have had many fast crashes whilst wearing my Tackvest and have never had a back injury. Would highly recommend!

    I’ve used this Track Vest and back protector. Not only is it really comfortable but it works. I’ve had plenty of crashes over the last 3 years with the Team HARIBO Starmix, some at over 90mph. It’s protected me well thanks to KNOX, great product well worth the money.

    the track vest is best piece of equipment yet from knox, before i was introduced to this i was never comfortable with wearing a chest protector and back protector at the same time, but with the track vest i have both in one piece of equipment, and the best thing about it is you don’t know your wearing it!

  11. Daniel B.

    Great for road or track. Love the adjustability and the fact that you can wash the vest.

  14. Del D.

    I’m extremely pleased with the Track Vest. I’m a slim 5ft 9″ tall male. I purchased three S size. It fits well, and the back protector is perfectly placed, and it’s comfortable. It’s also hassle-free to take on and off due to its gilet design.

    Fit and finish of the Knox Track Vest is excellent. the vest is comfortable and low profile so it fits under my Held Race Evo track suit. Shipping from England was extremely quick!

  16. Brian C.

    Can I let you know how good it is after I have fallen off and slid it down the road?

  17. Neil M.

    I broke my back snowboarding so bought this product to wear during my recovery in case I fall again it’s a great fit and well made product and I’m glad to say I haven’t had to test it yet but I’m sure it would protect my back from further damage if I had to

  18. Morten E.

    Perfect fit and easy to wear

  19. Bill S.

    Really pleased with my recent purchase of the track vest.
    I was especially pleased with the helpful lady who processed the purchase really quickly as I was attending a track day and need it fast.

    Many thanks for the great service

    Great product used as a passenger for road racing and the British F1 Sidecar championship with True Heros Racing and philp F1 Sidecar team in the BSB

    After looking for a few weeks decided on the track vest mkiii great bit of kit I wanted to add the extra chest protection a quick email was advised to get a large (I am a39” chest) fit is perfect. Only small niggle and I mean small I think it could do with a larger front zip it can be a bit fiddly only time will tell how robust the zip is. Great job knox

    I’m a year round biker, and a Blood Biker. Whilst commuting from work a month ago, a driver failed to look and pulled out of a junction 2ft in front of me. I had no chance. My vintage CB500 was written off and I have multiple injuries. But the Track Vest and chest plate saved me from far worse trauma. Broken thumb, right knee and pelvic trauma. But torso was uninjured. (I’m a Staff Nurse). The A&E Trauma Team were very impressed by the Knox armour and said that without it, I could have had life changing injuries. This is the best way I can think to put a decent review. Hope I never put it to the test again, but it did it’s job! I’ll never ride without it. Need better gloves though…

    Spent a long time looking into which back protector to get as I wanted to upgrade from the d30 that came with my jackets. Also I wanted to have something that could be used for the odd track day but mainly for road riding. Settled on the Track Vest by Knox. It was more than I intended to spend but as soon as I received iit and tried it on I knew it was a very worthwhile investment. Very comfy, easy to put on, no faffing, very comfortable and and importantly clearly will provide great protection in the event of an incident. Have worn all day long and it is as if I am not wearing it.. I am 5’10”, 78kg and chose a size M which is perfectly snug on me. In my view it is definitely worth the investment if you want top protection and all day comfort.
