Innovation


Knox has been a leading innovator of impact protection since the early 1980’s so it was a natural for them to look at other areas of the body where they felt they could make a real difference and offer much needed development.


 


So 3 Years ago Knox patented the SPS (scaphoid protection system) which for the first time gave riders effective protection against common scaphoid injuries caused by either a compression fracture or by hyper extension when a glove palm made contact with the road. By placing the Knox SPS on the palm the plastic parts act as a slider eliminating the grab effect and scaphoid injuries.


 


This has proven to be a very effective system for riders and many have benefitted from the small addition to their gloves.


Understanding that glove development in the market was limited and could be improved Knox spent 2 years developing new systems for the hand with perfect comfort and fit which is synonymous with the Knox brand..


The result is not just another range of gloves; the result is Knox Hand Armour.


 


 


The Birth of Boa


Boa Technology is a company that exists to optimize footwear design with one simple mission: To render shoelaces obsolete. This was technology that hadn’t ever been challenged.


The Boa Lacing System revolutionised footwear, delivering better performance to a new generation of athletes.


 


Knox sought to incorporate Boa Technology’s cutting-edge innovation into Hand Armour to improve the tired Velcro wrist closure method that had remained unchanged for decades.


 


Knox approached Boa Technology with the idea, and the result has been a major partnership between the companies. Today, Knox and Boa Technology are united in development of a pioneering new wrist closure system, exclusive to Hand Armour.


Knox Hand Armour incorporating The Boa Lacing System gives a unique, stable and controlled closure method.


 


Features + benefits


Dialled-in fit for a mechanical advantage


Micro adjustable for a precision fit


Lightweight closure system that never comes undone


Wrist guards for stable support & abrasion


 


Boa Lace Explained


7 strands of aircraft grade stainless steel wire are woven together into a small bundle. This bundle is then surrounded by 12 additional strands of stainless steel to create a strong and flexible cable. The completed cable is then jacketed with a specially formulated polymer to provide a smooth, abrasion resistant and low friction surface.


 


The Hand Armour product names perfectly reflect the inspiration, innovation and technology behind each design in the collection.

 

SPS- Scaphoid Protection System


Generally scaphoid injury is only caused by either a compression fracture or by hyper extension.


For example, with hyper extension it’s easy to understand how the SPS can eliminate this injury.


 


Hyper extension is caused when the palm of the hand comes into contact with the road when falling from a bike. Normal leather grabs the road and slows the hand down while the forward momentum of the upper body carries on and overtakes the hand which is now loaded. This is the root cause of hyper extension.


By placing the Knox SPS on the palm the plastic parts have a low coefficient of friction and slide easily forward. As the hands slide forward they eliminate the potential of both hyper extension and compression loading because the hand is always in front of the body.


 


This system is now further supported by the new Knox wrist slider that further enhances the sliding effect over a greater area.

 

Handroid


Pinnacle of the collection, race inspired hand armour.


 


Patented Exo skeletal flexible spines that cover the vulnerable knuckles, fingers and thumb and give full unrestricted movement. These link to a comfortable gel lined Metapod that covers the metacarpals and offers added protection to the back of the hand.


 


On the palm the tried and tested Sport Scaphoid Protection System is enhanced by additional sliding systems on all sides which ensure that in the event of an accident the majority of contact with the ground are sliders and not leather. An additional inner cuff slider works to support and enhance the SPS sliding effect. Super strong and tear resistant Kangaroo leather covers the inside palm and fingers.


The Handroid carries the most technical Knox Boa lacing system that allows precision adjustment around the whole cuff. The wrist system acts as an external brace and tightens equally from all sides.  All you have to do is dial in the right torque for you. To release simply pull the dial. Putting gloves on and off has never been smarter or easier.

Biomech


The Biomech is sports inspired hand armour that features an opaque knuckle protector. Soft impact absorbent honeycomb gel fills the cavity and can be seen through the opaque window on the Knuckle guard.

A small metapod on the back of the hand houses the same impact absorbent honeycomb gel.


The fingers give traditional protection with discreet, perfectly shaped finger mouldings.


Superfabric, featuring ceramic beads, covers the side of the little finger.


On the palm the tried and tested Sport Scaphoid Protection System is enhanced by an additional inner cuff slider which works to support the SPS sliding effect. Super strong and tear resistant Kangaroo leather covers the inside palm and fingers.
