Armoured shirts are at the heart of Knox protective apparel. They were first invented by the brand in the 1990’s. They’ve 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, motorcycling is rendered Seasonless. There is no spring, summer, autumn, or winter wear. Instead, riders have one hardworking layered outfit. 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.
Discreet body armour can be found in the Action Pro armoured shirt. This armour sits in a super stretchy shirt. This has been designed all types of motorcycle riders, and it offers superior abrasion and impact resistance. This shirt isn’t just for motorcyclists. It’s also suitable for other adrenaline sports including eBike, MTB and Off Road riders as well as those doing Snowsports, all looking for valuable protection. The shoulders and elbows are approved to EN 1621-1:2012 L1 and Level 2 back protector is approved to EN 1621-2: 2014 L2 CB. These Micro-Lock protectors are guaranteed for five years when registered
In the Action pro shirt, abrasion resistance comes in a package that is form-fitting, lightweight and breathable. Athleisure aesthetic and performance wear meet in this shirt to give the wearer optimum protection with optimum comfort. This is thanks to its’ construction. Being made with sustainable Sorona® Agile, an eco-efficient fibre which is partially made with plant-based polymers from Dupont. This fabric has a subtle piquet texture, yet has high levels of strength, stretch, and stain resistance. This makes it a perfect fit for the hard-working Action Pro.
Armour in the back, shoulders and elbows can easily be removed for washing the shirt. The Action Pro is CE approved to EN 17092 – 4:2020 for road use with a Class A certification. It can be worn on its own for warm weather riding. When it turns cool or wet, the wearer can simply add a warm or waterproof layer from the Knox Seasonless Collection.
The abrasion resistant Action Pro is available in no fewer than seven sizes from small to quadruple extra-large. Stretch mesh on the forearms and under the arms, engineered by Knox, adds breathability.
The technical CE classification 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 matt black Knox branded zip pullers. Premium detailing continues with discreet Knox branding on the chest, front hem and back as well as Knox branded elastic on the cuffs where there are thumb loops for added security.
Also adding to the security is a belt loop system on the inside of the shirt. This ensures that riders can secure their trousers to the shirt. A separate removable Micro-Lock chest protector can be added as an optional extra. The Action Pro shirt is available in black.
