Knox has introduced a version of its award winning Stowaway back-protector that includes not only chest protection, but wind protection too.
Integral to the Gilet Air X is the Stowaway - at just 550 grams, it is the lightest model in the Knox range and believed to be the lightest CE-approved back-protector on the market.  Incredibly, its internal honeycomb polypropylene construction ensures that the Stowaway is capable of absorbing massive amounts of energy from an impact and thus comfortably exceeds latest European CE standard for back-protectors EN(1621-2).   At the front is a removable Knox Advance-X CE-approved chest protector that can be used with the Gilet or worn separately with other bike wear.
Both chest and back protectors are incorporated in a zip up vest that is not only easy to wear but is also made from the same windproof and breathable 3D+ fabric that has made the Cold Killers clothing range so successful.  The check fleece material on the inside allows improved better air circulation.
More comfortable and easier to use than 'strap-on' items, this combination is particularly suitable for use under textile jackets and is expected to be popular both with British commuters and Northern European bike tourists.  This light and versatile piece of protective kit will also prove useful on skiing or snowboarding holidays! 
Available in sizes XS to XXL the new Knox Gilet Air X sells for £99.99 inc. vat.
