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.
  • Constructed using high tenacity stretch nylon, combined with newly developed mesh fabrics. Tough breathable arrownet mesh for abrasion, cut and tear resistance in high impact areas.
  • Soft but durable stretch mesh panels for flexibility, comfort, and maximum breathability to keep the rider cool.
  • Includes MICRO-LOCK armour in the shoulders, elbows and back. MICRO-LOCK uses SMART technology and properties to keep the armour super soft to touch but it locks when impacted.  The locking action increases the amount of impact absorbed by the protector and reduces the energy passed through to the back and/or limbs.

Product FAQ's

Product FAQ's

  • WHAT DOES ‘NO JACKET REQUIRED’ MEAN’?

    Exactly what it says on the tin! The Knox Urbane Pro Shirt is designed to be worn on its own in good weather with no extra layers are required. Just add a warm or waterproof jacket for protection from the elements.

  • CAN THIS BE WORN IN COLDER/WET WEATHER?

    Absolutely, the Knox Urbane Pro Shirt Mk2 can be worn all year round. It is the most versatile garment on the market, due to its lightweight and breathability for hot weather. In cold weather just layer up over the top with warm and waterproof layers. Its perfect for layering.

  • WHAT ARE THE SECURITY FEATURES ON THIS SHIRT?

    In line with the EN17062 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. The shirt features a new improved security belt loop system on the inside to ensure riders can secure their trousers to the shirt. A Velcro strip on the chest area allows an optional Micro lock chest protector to be fitted. Zipped pockets for securing valuables or a mobile phone.

  • WHAT STORAGE IS AVAILABLE?

    The Urbane Pro Shirt features two exterior pockets, one on the chest and one back pocket large enough to store a rain jacket if required. The Urbane Pro Utility Shirt features 5 tough duck canvas exterior pockets. Both styles have 2 handy interior pockets.

  • CAN I WEAR A JACKET/HOODIE OVER THE TOP?

    The Urbane Pro Shirt is designed to be worn as a CORE protection garment for any rider. This means the rider can layer up with a hoodie or jacket if preferred.

  • WHAT LEVEL ARMOUR COMES WITH IT? CAN I UPGRADE THAT?

    The shirt is supplied with CE approved Micro-lock Level 1 low profile shoulder and elbow and a full CE approved level 2 Micro-Lock back protector. An optional chest protector can be added. It is also possible to replace LV1 Shoulders and Elbows to Level 2 shoulders and elbows at the point of purchase. An additional Charge is made to cover this upgrade.

  • HOW CAN I WASH THE URBANE PRO SHIRT?

    This is a machine Washable garment – remove armour before washing. Always read the wash care labels.

  • CAN YOU HELP ME WITH SIZING?

    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 sales@planet-knox.com or contact us on our live web chat.

  • CAN THE ARMOUR BE REMOVED?

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

  • WHAT DOES CE LEVEL AA MEAN?

    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).

  • WHAT IS THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND THE PREVIOUS URBANE PRO?

    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.

      Brilliant product but read the sizing guide here and on urban rider - both are accurate - im a 46 inch chest all the way round and fit the 3XL and my normal t-shirt size is an XL. Enables great movement whilst feeling protected, perfect without a jacket over a t-shirt in hot weather. Will need at least a wind stopping layer when not so warm and/or with a bit of wind, but the fit enables you to layer casual or bike specific layers over it providing they are a bit of a looser/larger fit. I'm really happy with it.

      I bought the Urbane Pro MK2 from my local bike shop, originally in to buy a 'summer jacket' for a holiday in the Canaries, and the odd sunny Scottish day (wishful thinking). Once I tried on the shirt I was initially impressed with the comfort of the armour, compared to my normal jacket. Size-wise I had to go to an XL (6'2 and fairly slim), which provided a snug fit. In use in the canaries I was more than glad I had gone for this, especially when the temps hit mid 30's, on the move I had enough airflow through the shirt to be comfortable. The only thing is I wish I had chosen the grey version!

      fantastic product and second to none customer service. I had purchased the Urbane Pro trousers last year and found them a great alternative to riding jeans and even (dare I say) Rukka Forsair whixch I had used for a few years, so I was keen to see what the jacket was like. It's April in the UK as I write this, so I have not had a chance nor the weather to try it out on the road, but I am impressed with the construction, level of protection provided as part of the garment but most of all, I ordered the wrong size, but Knox turned around a replacement over the weekend and I had it on the Monday. Numpty that I am, I forgot to include the returns paperwork stating what I needed, cancellation or new size, but Knox took the time to email me and ask. Superb and even better British.

      Got my Knox urbane pro mk2. Size matches description perfectly. Now I can wear anything I fancy. Checkered long sleeves, polo shirt, t-shirts, overcoat, rain jacket or nothing at all.

      I love it! Everybody has asked me if it is really a motorcycle jacket and I can use it for a long period of time and still feel comfortable.

      My only suggestion is to contact Knox customer service if you are unsure of the size so they can help you, at the end I picked up a L size and it fits me very nice

      Take the advice of many before like I did - it is a real fitted size. I am normally medium in most things, but got the upgraded inserts so ordered a large - very glad I did. Form fitting in every way



      I have another full vented jacket, but was hoping this could provide the same airflow with less loose bulk, and that's exactly what it does, feels more like a long sleeve shirt than a jacket and I everything about it.



      One suggestion Knox, can YOU PUT ZIPS ON THE INSIDE POCKETS? I installed some on mine (wasn't difficult) and the pockets are so much more useful but there is no noticeable difference when wearing it.



      Either way, my first Knox product and expect it will not be my last.

      I ordered the Knox Men’s Urbane Pro Mk2 Jacket complete with Micro-Lock Chest Body upgrade and the Level 2 Armour upgrade.

      When the package first arrived, I noticed that the cardboard box was of substantial quality. Once I opened the box, I was also surprised to see a coat hanger. The coat hanger has the Knox branding and is shaped and thickened to aid in keeping the jacket in shape when its hanging, a simple item often overlooked.

      My body size was just on the cusp of medium and large, and I as I wanted the chest armour, I got in touch with the sales team who were quick in replying to my questions. The items I bought, just ooze quality, and fit perfectly. The Urban Pro has great quality in its stitching and assembly which inspires confidence when I’m wearing it. I have a full set of leathers and textiles; I bought the Urban Pro to wear under a hoodie whilst practicing my stunts and its now my go-to armour for wearing on my bikes, UK weather permitting.

      I will be ordering a few more Knox items shortly, as the quality is so inspiring. For the MK3 Urban Pro, I would like to see a slightly bigger chest pocket or a dedicated phone pocket for modern phones, Velcro, or zips on the inside pockets to keep your valuables safe.

      I'm 195cm, 88kg and usually wear size L. The XL would have fit me, however my shoulder width and arm length require size XXL. Overall it stills fits alright.



      I've used the Urbane Pro Mk2 for four weeks in France and Spain. Without it I guess I wouldn't have survived the summer heat, with temperatures up to 38 degrees.



      The thumb loops seem to be attached in a peculiar spot: with my arms next to my body they fit fine, with my hands on the handlebar they are twisted and too tight, so I tend not to use them.
