Knox, Britain's leading impact protection specialists, has re-engineered its Cross Knee guards for use across a wide range of sporting applications for which comfort and performance matter.

The Cross Guards are made in the UK from injected LDPE with an integral honeycomb section for outstanding protection, which means they comfortably exceed the European standard for motorcycle limb protectors (EN621-1).

Tested and Approved
The standard demands that protectors should transmit no more than 35kN of energy from a 50J impact. Knox Cross Guards transmit just 21kN, exceeding the standard by a massive 40%. This is an outstanding level of protection especially as many companies offer similar products that are not tested at all! With Knox Cross Knee Guards consumers can be confident that they are using a product that has been tested and approved fit for purpose.

Knox has over 25 years experience in impact protection and the company understands that comfort is equally important when trying to compete in sporting events. The Cross Knee Guards are light (at under 225g each) and are sewn to mesh bonded foam with adjustable wide soft elastic straps. They are perforated for cooling and available in short and long lengths for a closer fit.

Knox Cross Knee Guards retail for £34.99, which includes a mesh carry bag for easy storage and transport.
