Knox reveals HC Tech back protector

New CE-approved armour weighs less than a first class letter

BRITISH impact protection specialist Knox has developed a back protector that is the lightest on the market, weighing less than a first class letter.

The HC Tech is fully CE-approved thanks to a three-layer construction and comes in three sizes to suit both men’s and ladies’ riding jackets.

It weighs 86 grams, is 19mm thick, and has been designed to deliver greater flexibility for rider comfort.

The HC Tech has also been tested at -20 C and +40 C to ensure that protection is provided at extreme temperature.

Riders wishing to upgrade the protector in their current motorcycle jacket can buy the HC Tech for £19.99 or have it fitted as original equipment in one of Knox's partners' jacket line-up.
