Given Knox’s track record, it was only a matter of time before we saw this - their true pièce de résistance. After the unmatched success of the CE Level A Urbane Pro, then it’s more protective successor the MK2, there was no direction left for Knox to go. The Honister is an armoured shirt CE Approved to Level AAA - the highest class available, usually reserved for one-piece leather race suits. This achievement truly cannot be understated - this is an armoured base-layer that offers the highest level of protection on the market, without sacrificing any of the breathability or lightweight comfort of its predecessors. It is nothing short of groundbreaking.
Knox redesigned the Armoured Shirt from the ground up to achieve this. Named after the mountain pass closest to Knox HQ, the Honister is constructed from a brand new combination of hyper abrasion-resistant CORDURA® polyamide, and tough mesh panelling. Low-profile Level 2 Micro-lock armour is included at the shoulders, elbows, and back is slimline, and fits close to the body - exactly where it should be. Soft to the touch, and hardening on impact, it’s held in place thanks to built-in stretch material, essential for rider comfort on longer journeys and for ease of movement. A Micro-lock chest protector can be added as an optional extra.
With hardy YKK zippers throughout, featured on the handy pockets for your personals, the Knox Honister is sleek too. Minimal and discreet branding is coupled with hidden reflective elements for added safety in low-light conditions. Thumb loops keep you secure, and a soft interior neck collar will keep you as comfortable as can be. If this wasn’t enough, the Honister is machine washable - simply pop the armour out, and follow the wash instructions.
The Knox Honister truly is a game-changer. If you’re new to the Armoured Shirt world, then know that this is the pinnacle. It unlocks true freedom to express your style however you choose on your bike. In the heat, wear on its own, or with just a Tee over the top. Pop on a denim jacket, or your favourite vintage leather. If the weather turns, just layer up however you see fit, with a waterproof and/or thermals - you will always be as protected as it is possible to be if you are wearing the Honister Armoured Shirt.
