Knox layering is a move away from wearing 1 big bulky jacket with everything inside to a system of separate layers that can be worn together or separately. They are lighter and more comfortable to wear and give improved protection, flexibility and style.
The essential garment in Knox layering is the armoured shirt.
Worn close to the body so the armour stays in place and doesn’t move around which is the safest and most comfortable way to wear protection.
The first Knox Armoured shirt was released in 1994 and in the following 25 years, it has been the Knox mission to provide riders with this type of close fitting protection, in one easy to wear solution.
The New Knox Urbane Pro shirt is the most advanced armoured shirt from Knox and is also a CE approved Class A garment. This shirt has been engineered with abrasion resistance built in so it can be worn on its own with NO JACKET REQUIRED. Just add extra layers for extra warmth and waterproofness
Knox Layering System
How does it work?
Your protective layer. Impact protection either with or without abrasion protection. This is the core layer that is essential for motorcycle protection. If you buy a Class A or AA rated garment, then you don’t need any other abrasion protection as this is included in this garment and is CE certified to be worn alone. If you buy a C rated garment, then you should add an abrasion resistant layer when riding a motorcycle.
EXPEL THE ELEMENTS
Your outer layer and barrier against the elements. Keep yourself warm and/or dry when you need it.
SUPERCHARGE YOUR SYSTEM
Layers designed to make you more comfortable and increase your enjoyment while out riding. This starts with a temperature regulating base layer and also includes other cosy mid layers.
