Knox Hand Armour Technology

Something that can is much needed and can make a difference in the world of motorcycle riding. This led to them begin the manufacture of Knox hand armour motorcycle gloves. They began with the SPS (scaphoid protection system) that is used to protect riders against scaphoid injuries. These injuries are caused by hyperextension or compression fracture when a glove makes contact with the ground. Integral shim washers and plastic tubing acts as a sliding eliminator and grab effector which also eliminates scaphoid injuries. Following this line of innovation, Knox has been able to come up with very many types of motorcycle gloves that are fully protective against injuries and the winter cold and grasping.
