Impact protection specialists Planet-Knox have launched a brand new micro site dedicated to the wide variety of athletes who rely on the British-company's market-leading safety products. With input from superbike racers, stunt riders, motocrossers and mountain bikers, the Knox Athletes site features picture galleries,plus regularly updated blogs and twitter feeds, so viewers can keep up with the latest news.

Prominent sports men on the Knox Athletes site are 2009 British Superbike runner-up James Ellison, racing for Swan Honda in BSB this year, and motorcycle stunt rider Sparky Stunts, widely regarded as the Ace Cafe's official No.1 Stunt Rider.

Off-road riding is represented by former Relentless Suzuki star Jamie Law, who is running a one-man team this year. Often the first non "works" rider home, Jamie is a great development rider and helped Knox create their class leading Warrior harness.

World Cup downhill mountain bike racers Stuart "Jenko" Jenkinson and Liam Little are both dedicated hard-riding competitors who rely on Knox armour to protect them during the unavoidable bumps and scrapes that occur in their sport and their blog entries are action-packed.

On top of all this readers can find out what members of the Knox test team are up to; with contributors from the design, development and sales teams. "We don't always get it right and it's the constant mishaps on the trail or track that keep the developments going" explains company MD Geoff Travell.

"Ultimately the intention is to grow the Knox Athletes microsite over the next 12 months to around 50 Knox-protected sports people from around the world, creating an exciting window that reveals the real face of Knox - the users." For further information, call Knox on 01900 825825 or visit
