Knox re-engineered their Biomech gloves for 2013, adding the latest sports profile scaphoid protection sliders to the palm in response to input from development riders. Both Michael Dunlop and Michael Rutter chose the Biomech for their 2013 Isle of Man TT campaigns, covering 1698 racing miles (2735 km), taking five race wins and setting three new lap records between them.
“Truthfully the best I have ever used. Getting them back on post TT & have NO blisters for the first time” commented Rutter.
Michael Dunlop adds; “To win at the TT you need total concentration. The Biomechs are perfect! Great protection, comfort and fit; I don’t feel like I’ve got them on.”
Conceived as a sports touring glove, the Biomech has built up a loyal following among racers thanks to its exceptional levels of comfort, combined with high levels of protection – ideal for long distance races on public roads like the TT.
Manufactured from supple aniline leather with flexible and tear-resistant kangaroo hide on the palm,
which is overlaid with an Amara grip pad for improved control, the Biomech has ventilated panels between the fingers allow cooling air-flow. An opaque knuckle protector contains impact absorbing honeycomb gel, with an additional pad covering the metacarpal bones on the back of the hand. As well as the scaphoid protection sliders, there are also abrasion and cut resistant Superfabric® pads at the base of the little finger and on the thumbs. Cuff sliders complete the all-round protection package. Secured by the patented BOA closure system, the wearer dials in the precise amount of torque to hold the glove firmly in place and simply pulls the dial to release.
Available in updated black/white, red and blue colour options, in sizes XS-XXL, Biomech gloves sell for £129.99 (including VAT). Call 01900 825825 or visit www.knox-armour.co.uk
