RECON re-defines road riding

Planet Knox - world leaders in the development and manufacture of body protection systems - has added a third model to the Hand Armour range. Designed for touring and leisure riders, the Recon offers levels of protection usually only found on racing gloves, but doesn't sacrifice the comfort, feel and control crucial for long stretches in the saddle.

Heading up the Recon's safety features are unique Opaque Knuckle Protectors. Unlike other ‘hard shell' protectors, they contain a medical grade, impact-absorbing, honeycomb gel; specifically developed to absorb and spread impact forces away from the wearer's hand.

The Recon also features Knox's Patented Scaphoid Protection System® with the Low Profile SPS, and additional sliders on the fingers, wrist and cuff for extra abrasion resistance.

Soft and supple, drum-dyed aniline leather sections feature on the fingers and back of the hand for maximum flexibility with durable, tear resistant goat leather on the palm, which is reinforced with Schoeller Keprotec for added protection and overlaid with an Amara Grip Pad for improved control.

The Recon also features the Dialled-in Boa Lacing system, used across the entire Knox Hand Armour range. This unique closure system has a simple dial-in to fit mechanism, which uses aircraft grade stainless steel wire to draw ‘side pods' over the wrist, for targeted multi-adjustable closure. Quick and easy to operate - even with gloved hands - the Boa Lacing system provides even tightening, and is micro adjustable for a perfect fit. It also helps to ensure that the Recon will stay on the hand during an accident.

The Recon is available in three colours: black, black/white and brown/tan in sizes XS-XXL, at a recommended retail price of £99.99 (including VAT). For further information and to find a stockist, call 01900 825825 or visit
