July 26 2004. Protection specialist Knox has re-designed its Aero backpack to include several useful new features, combined with a new look, all for the same price as before. The key new features are;

- Main compartment has an expander zip, giving an extra 2" (5cm) all around.

- Clam-style opening for easy access.

- Stash pouch on shoulder strap for easy access for tolls, etc.

- Two-tone colour scheme.

The Knox Aero Pack carries the weight low on the back, making it comfortable over long distances, while the aerodynamic shape reduces buffeting. The shoulder straps are tailored to fit over bulky motorcycle clothing and so are easy to put on/take off over leathers/waterproofs. With its water-resistant design and zip-out helmet bag in the base, riders love the Aero backpack for its practicality as much as its value.

Geoff Travell, Managing Director of Planet-Knox, personally tested the prototype by riding his Suzuki GSXR740-K4 from the Company's Cumbrian factory to Assen in Holland and back again. "The fact that the Assen GP was on at the same time was pure coincidence," he claims.

The new Knox Aero-Pack still retails for just £29.95 inc. VAT.
