KINESIS – movement in response to stimulus

Major development in impact protection launched by Knox
Knox, the British impact protection specialists have a reputation for innovation dating back to the early 1980's, when they pioneered back protectors and body armour. Knox was the first brand to bring CE-approved limb and back protectors to market, the first to produce a roll-up back protector and in fact Knox has consistently displayed an energy and enthusiasm for creative ways to make motorcycling safer and more enjoyable. Knox are now proud to launch the revolutionary KINESIS impact protectors, the ultimate incarnation of its OEM range of armour.

The most significant innovation in impact protection since the introduction of a European standard in 1995, KINESIS doesn't just absorb energy from an impact, it deflects it! Developed during routine testing in the Knox Lab, when a 5KG weight is dropped onto new designs to test their impact absorption properties, the Knox Team discovered that less energy was transmitted if the sample protector sipped out of position when hit. They realised that this is because an oblique force deflects much of the energy from an impact, whereas blunt force is transmitted directly.

Due in garments launched in late 2011, ready for the 2012 season, Kinesis will redefine motorcycle impact protection.
