Planet-Knox has responded to the growing number of female riders. Over the past ten years in Britain, there has been a 62 per cent increase in women taking a CBT. Of the 225,000 female riders in the UK today, 63 per cent use their bikes for daily transport. 
The Ricochet is made in sizes and a shape to suit female riders. It combines the best features of both 'soft' and 'hard' back-protectors, and is designed to absorb impact energy. The Ricochet exceeds the new European standard for back-protectors [EN1621-2] and can withstand repeated impacts. 
Features of the Ricochet back-protector include a transparent panel to inspect the honeycomb structure. There are many different sizes to choose from, suiting women, men and children. The quick-release shoulder straps can be worn in two ways and can be removed if required under racing regulations. Knox's vent system allows hot air to be drawn through and dispersed via a chimney effect. The one-way torsion control resists bending backwards.
