Knox K-Pack: Motorcycle Backpack

Motorcycle Backpacks

The K-Pack from Knox is the British company’s third generation back pack that, like its predecessors, sets new standards for motorcycle backpacks, with comfort, innovative design and practical features, including helmet carrier and integral waterproof cover.

Comfort and aerodynamics are key to carrying luggage on your back on a motorcycle, so the K-Pack is engineered to hold the weight low over the hips, reducing stress on the lower back. It sits neatly on the wearer’s back, offering as little wind resistance as possible.

Knox have also added breathable “spacer” fabric on inside of each strap, to help improve airflow and prevent the build up of moisture while riding your motorcycle.

Providing 25 liters of space, the K-Pack has a main compartment that is accessed easily via a 180-degree zip and features a document sleeve, mobile phone pouch and key fob.

Packed with neat ideas, the K-Pack motorcycle backpack has a mesh bottle carrier on the outside, and removable storage pouch, which converts to a hip bag. Zip tabs can be stuck down with Velcro when closed, to prevent them flapping in the breeze.

When a motorcycle helmet needs to be carried, place in the protective helmet bag provided, close using the securing chord and clip onto the front of the K-Pack. When not required, un-clip the helmet bag and replace with the handy extra storage pouch; this can be used for additional items or to carry the helmet bag ready for the next use. A visor pouch is also included with the K-Pack, which secures inside the main compartment, keeping spare visors well protected.

A fully waterproof, high visibility cover is incorporated in the base of the K-Pack motorcycle backpack, which secures by press studs to the inside of the back, protecting the bag and contents from the elements.

A “flap free” fastening system is also incorporated in to the K-Pack’s design. This helps eliminate flapping and whipping of excess webbing, yet allows a full range of strap adjustment for a snug and secure fit.

The new K-Pack motorcycle backpack is available in black. For more information contact Knox on (44) +1900 825825 email: or visit
