With the summer riding season set to be a scorcher, Knox has made it even easier to look and feel cool, with improved ventilation and a sharp new look for their Aegis back protector. The most technically advanced in the British company's range, the Aegis offers unparalleled levels of comfort and protection.

Uprated venting allows maximum airflow, keeping the rider cool on hot and sticky days, and its unique low profile cut ensures that the Aegis sits perfectly under close-fitting jackets and suits, assuring ultimate comfort.

Independently tested and approved to EN1621-2 Level 2 (the highest rating under current European regulations*), the Aegis features exclusive honeycomb plate design and inclined cell wall technology for maximum impact protection. An adjustable and removable soft kidney section is included for extra peace of mind.

Freedom of movement remains central to the design of the Aegis - flex channels allow the spine section to articulate freely, moving with the rider and allowing the Aegis to sit perfectly around the contours of the back, ensuring that protection is maintained in all positions. The multi-position waist strap can be moved up or down by 2" (5cm), to suit differing lengths of torso, while the automatic shoulder strap slider system self-adjusts for a perfect fit every time.

Topping off this impressive specification is a cool new look for 2010; ice white flex panels and hot red highlights. Available in seven sizes, for men, women and children, the Knox Aegis sells for £89.99 in adult sizes. For further information, call Knox on 01900 825825 or visit See the video at

* EN 1621-2 assesses the performance of protective devices by measuring the force transmitted through it when impacted by a falling mass of 5kg. Protectors subjected to this test are deemed to conform to the standard if the average transmitted force of nine tests is less than the following:
Level 1 protectors: The average peak force recorded shall be below 18 kN, and no single value shall exceed 24 kN.
Level 2 protectors: The average peak force recorded shall be below 9 kN, and no single value shall exceed 12 kN.
