Motorcycle Glove

Re-engineered as part of the KNX-ST3 program of continuous innovation and development, Knox Recon leisure/touring motorcycle gloves now feature an improved ventilated knuckle protector and a fresh Black/White colour option.

Already well ventilated, with perforated leather panels between the fingers supplemented with vented sliders on top of each finger, for summer 2011 the Recon gets extra ventilation in the knuckle protector, to help cool air circulate through the whole glove while on the motorcycle.

Unlike other “hard shell” protectors the Recon motorcycle gear contains a visible impact absorbing honeycomb gel.

The Recon also features Knox’s Low Profile Scaphoid Protection System, and additional sliders on the fingers, wrist and cuff, for added abrasion resistance. A wrist guard is also included, to help protect and support this particularly vulnerable area.

Soft and supple drum-dyed Aniline leather sections feature on the fingers and back of the hand for maximum flexibility, and tough but equally supple goat leather – reinforced with Schoeller Keprotec – is used on the palm for added protection. An Amara Grip Pad and silicon print is also incorporated for improved grip and control.

The Recon also features the Dialled-in Boa Closure system, used across the entire Knox Hand Armour range. Quick and easy to operate – even with ‘gloved’ hands – the Boa Closure system provides even tightening, and is micro adjustable for a perfect fit. It also helps ensure the Recon stays on the hand during an accident.

The re-engineered Recon is available in classic Brown/Tan, Black and new Black/White color schemes in unisex sizes XS-XXL.
