This completely new concept solves the problem faced by many riders in hot or humid climates – finding clothing that will shield them from impact and abrasion but won’t be too warm for the conditions.
All too often motorcyclists discard their jackets when the temperature rises too far and resort to riding in just an armoured shirt or without any protection at all, in a desperate attempt to avoid over-heating.
Combining the best features of a mesh jacket and an armoured shirt the Zephyr delivers full venting, reinforced with abrasion-resistant fabrics and with the reassurance of class-leading Knox CE-protectors covering the shoulders, elbows and back.
- Fully vented – Arrownet mesh stretches nearly the full length of the front and back panels, and down each arm too. This reassuringly tough, yet light and comfy, mesh fabric allows maximum airflow, keeping the rider’s core cool and stopping the build-up of perspiration. Lined with fine soft-cotton, it’s also comfortable against the skin.
- Abrasion resistant – High tenacity nylon covers the shoulders, upper back and the outside of the arms – the areas most vulnerable in a slide or fall. Chosen for its significant strength, durability and abrasion resistance, the material is also breathable and stretchy, for added comfort and ease of movement, both on and off the bike.
- Impact-protection – Knox Lite+ CE-approved protectors are built into the shoulders and elbows, with a CE-approved Knox Back Protector covering the back. There’s also the option to fit a chest protector. Each protector has a low profile cut, smooth finish, thin edging and much greater articulation than hard armour. The Zephyr’s stretchy fabric and tailored fit, means each piece sits firmly where it’s needed.
The men’s version features two-position popper adjustment at the waist and cuffs for a snug and secure fit.
The ladies has zipped cuffs and a stylish real leather waist belt, for a more feminine style and fit.
Both versions have outside pockets; high quality YKK zips throughout; a soft, ribbed collar for comfort; and both can be machine washed, with the protectors removed.
The Knox Zephyr provides comfort, style and confidence – whether you’re riding in hotter climates or navigating the heat of the city. The men’s version comes in sizes S-3XL (38”-50”); the ladies in XS-3XL (UK Size 8-20). Both retail at £199.99 including VAT.
There’s also a waterproof overjacket in both men’s and women’s styles that can be purchased separately to fit neatly over the Zephyr jacket. Each overjacket folds away into its own zipped carry bag for easy storage.
The men’s over jacket fits into the concealed zipped back pocket on the Zephyr and the ladies overjacket slides neatly onto the leather belt.
Both waterproof overjackets retail at £49.99.
