Knuckle down with Knox Biomech

Following hot on the heels of the Knox Handroid, with its unique exoskeleton, comes the latest model in the Hand Armour range - the Biomech. Safety is at the core of all Hand Armour and the Biomech features distinctive transparent knuckle and Metapod sections on the back of the hand. Unlike other hard shell knuckle protectors found on gloves, the Biomech contains an impact absorbing honeycomb gel, designed to absorb and spread impact forces away from the wearer’s hand. This is easily demonstrated, when pushing on the underside of the knuckle you see the honeycomb expand through the transparent shell.

As with all Knox Hand Armour the Biomech includes the Patented Knox Scaphoid Protection System, with additional cuff sliders and wrist guards for increased support and protection during impact.

Strong, tear resistant but supple kangaroo leather is used on the palm and fingers, and the palm is further reinforced with Schoeller Keprotec too. Advanced superfabric ceramic bead is used on the side of each little finger as an added precaution. Aniline leather sections feature on the fingers and back of the hand.

Topping off the Biomech’s impressive specification is the Boa Lacing system. Unique to the Hand Armour range, the Boa Lacing system provides a simple “dialed-in” fit mechanism, which uses aircraft grade stainless steel wire to draw ‘side pods’ over the wrist, with targeted multi-adjustable closure. Quick and easy to operate, the Boa Lacing system provides even tightening, and is micro adjustable for a secure and perfect fit.

The Biomech is available in three colours: black, red and blue, in sizes XS-XXL. The recommended retail price is £129.99 (including VAT). For further information and to find a stockist, call 01900 825825 or visit www.knox-lab.com/hand-armour
