British impact protection specialists Knox has introduced a fully-CE-approved safety harness that has a specially designed back plate to accommodate popular brands of neck brace.

Developed with the help of Relentless Suzuki MX rider Jamie Law, the Knox Warrior BC9 combines ultra light weight with class-leading protection and ease of use.

Weighing in at just 1.1kg, the chest, elbow and back protector elements of the Warrior incorporate naturally strong hexagonal honeycomb internals that are light but capable of absorbing massive amounts of energy from an impact, working in a similar way to the crumple zone on a car. All protectors are independently tested and approved to the current European standards (EN 1621) for complete confidence in their protective capabilities. The back plate is lined with Spacer fabric that reduces heat build-up and works with pinhole vents to improve air circulation, keeping the wearer cool when the racing heats up.

Both Leatt (also BMW and KTM) and Alpinestars neck braces fit comfortably with the Knox Warrior BC9, sitting in specially shaped sections front and rear. Elastic and Velcro straps around the waist and over the shoulders secure the Warrior quickly and easily. Available in two sizes, (small and large), the Knox Warrior BC9 retails for £149.99 including VAT.
