Knox began operations in 1981 when their founder (who still leads the business today), Geoff Travell, was a young British motorcycle racer and body armour just didn’t exist. As well as body armour, gloves and technical apparel, the company is also a major supplier of CE approved Knox armor to more than 25 motorcycle brands of clothing. These include large brands like Roland Sands Design, RS Taichi, Kushitani, Indian and Rev’it! but also specialist brands like Helite air bags and PMJ jeans.
All Knox protectors are CE approved and Knox armor plays an active part in the improvement of CE standards through our involvement in the European Working Group WG9.
