New Flex Lite knee guards from Knox

Rider’s legs are the part of the body most likely to sustain an impact in a crash, according to a report by European Safer Urban Motorcycling. Yet many riders, notes eSUM, resist wearing protective clothing because of cost, inconvenience and comfort. Fortunately British impact-protection specialists Planet-Knox offers riders a simple and inexpensive solution to this problem, with new ultra lightweight knee guards in a slip-on air-mesh sleeve that can be worn under casual trousers or un-armoured motorcycle jeans. Fully CE tested and approved, each slimline Flex Lite protector weighs less than 175 grams and is tested and certified to EN1621-1, the European standard for motorcycle armour. Knox use and advanced energy-absorbent polyurethane foam, which is shaped to fit the knee and is highly flexible, for freedom of movement. The sleeves are made from a super breathable stretch aritex and the protectors are perforated for ventilation too, so day-long wear is not an issue. Quick and easy to slip on and off the knee, each protector is held securely in place by a Velcro strap and, because the Flex Lite knee guard attaches directly to the legit is held firmly in the correct position to provide maximum protection. Practically invisible when worn under jeans, Knox Flex Lite knee guards will retail for the introductory price of £29.99 per pair including VAT
