KNOX Handroid Hand Armour Gloves
***STG, Video Reviews***
The Knox Handroid Gloves have proven themselves over several seasons now to be the best of the best when it comes to motorcycle race gloves. The Handroid glove is at home on the street or race track as it provides a level of comfort you would never expect from a glove offering this level of protection. The Handroid had sliders placed in all the right places to help prevent injury from abrasion, impact as well as reducing the possibility of creating a tumble. From 2014 the Knox Handroid Gloves are fully CE certified to prEN 13594 - 2012. This new protective glove standard is difficult and gloves are assessed on the level of protection they provide whilst motorcycle riding.
The Multi Award winning Handroid is the pinnacle of the collection and has passed all of the following tests.

Voted Innovation of the Year 2011 by the British motorcycling press.
Patented Exo skeletal flexible spines that cover the knuckles, fingers and thumb and give full unrestricted movement. These link to a comfortable gel lined Metapod that covers the back of the hand.
On the palm the NEW Dual Compound tried and tested Scaphoid Protection System is enhanced by additional sliding systems on all sides which ensure that in the event of an accident the majority of contact with the ground are sliders and not leather. An additional inner cuff slider works to support and enhance the SPS sliding effect. Super strong and tear resistant Kangaroo leather covers the inside palm and fingers.
The Handroid carries the most technical Knox Boa lacing system that allows precision adjustment around the whole cuff. The wrist system acts as an external brace and tightens equally from all sides. All you have to do is dial in the right torque for you. To release simply pull the dial. Putting gloves on and off has never been smarter or easier.

KNOX GLOVES SIZE CHART
Posted by Matthew on 25th Apr 2017
3rd set in 6 years..one set took 3 crashes with one of them around 100mph. Had a pinky get pinched between the clip on and the track but still managed to not get injured. Not a single hand injury (knock on wood) through all my crashes. Crashing sucks but i trust these as much as my Arai and are my go to racing gloves. Sizing is a little odd and tight for the first week as a good suit or properly fitting glove should be. After the break in period you can't get much better than this glove. Typically last me about 2 years with 50 trackdays/endurance racing events a season.
Brand new gloves
Posted by Chris on 20th Apr 2017
Haven't gotten the chance to ride with the gloves yet. Been wearing them around the house just getting used to the feeling of them. For as bulky as they look they are quite light. The quality is superb and I can't wait to ride in them. The amount of protection is unreal. I won't buy another pair of gloves, and I used to swear by another brand!

Simply said, based on what is out there right now, I would not consider another glove for racing.

Great fit! I have long fingers and they fit great. Superior feel on the bars and the Boa system is outstanding

Best gloves ever. Fits perfectly and seems very durable in a crash, but Hopefully I don't have find out.

Just used them for a weekend at the track.I never noticed any difference from my old broken in gloves. they seem well made with lots of protection that do not interfear with controling the bike. fit is true to size with a snug racer fit.

This is my third pair of Handroids. If all things in life were built as well as these, all would be well in the world. My last pair survived a 140 mph track crash where I slid/tumbled on the straight for about 300 feet. Two of the fingertips of the gloves burned through but that was it. I just got my new V14 handroids and Knox has made them even better than the previous versions. They are simply outstanding.

These gloves are sweet. Kangaroo in the palm is essential for feel and these things are built extremely well. The protection is stout and I have no doubt they'll protect in an off. Break-in was drama-free and it only took a handful of rides before they started to become invisible. Comfortable, stylish, and proven protection. What more do you need? Oh, and the Boa system is stellar. Total time saver.
Worth the money. Buy them now! Highly recommended.
Don't think buy these !!!

I first heard about Knox gloves years ago and have been trying to find a good U.S outlet Well guess what we now have one with full support ,Yes they are expensive ,but just how much are your hands worth to you. it's like they say if you have a ten dollar head then get a ten dollar helmet,and the same applies here. these have proven themselves over and over in the U.K. racing scene. and I have seen many riders that were damn glad they had them on...So STG thanks guy's from one Happy Camper these rock and in case your wondering I ride a 2015 Yamaha R1M and I wont climb onboard without these on...5 stars gang..take care

The quality of this glove is awesome, the leather is very soft, and the protections are also very well. Don't really need to break in, the fitment is good. I highly recommend this glove to anyone!
v2 Quality Going Down
Posted by Detrich on 9th Sep 2015
My first pair of Handroids have lasted 5+ years and are still wearable. But, they're getting old, so I wanted to refresh them.
This new v2 pair has 2 things that really irked me right out of the box. First, the wrist buttons that snap the left & right glove together are gone. (This was a very convenient feature when you remove them.) Second, the white knuckle plate on my left glove popped clean off when I was taking them off for the very first time.
My first gen Handroids have been ridden weekly for 5+ years, dropped, dragged etc. and -never once- did the white knuckle plates come off- never. Not even once.
Made in China is really showing it's true colors this time around. Will still give 4 stars, but clearly, they are starting to go downhill.
your next last glove
Posted by Adam on 2nd Aug 2015
I was a bit skeptical at first of these gloves because it wasn't the big name brand like A-star or dianese gloves. But after talking with the crew at sportbiketrackgear.com i was convinced they would be great.
And they are! The are incredibly soft. They do fit like a race glove in regards to them being stiff. I took short rides for about a week till the broke in and started forming to my hand.
Once broke in they feel like i don't even have glove on. no tightness or stiffness and the amount of feedback on the bars is incredible.
I have big palms but shorter fingers so the medium fit me well. a tad long on the pointer finger and middle finger but all the other fingers fit like a glove. i also wear a medium in Rev'it gloves as well. By far a way better quality than the rev'it gloves i own.
For the money you just can't beat these gloves when it comes to comfort and protection.
Best Gloves Money Can Buy
Posted by Bobby on 6th May 2015
Right out of the box the Handroids are soft and fit as advertised with plenty of pre curve built into the glove. The gloves provide tons of bar/lever feel and break in extremely fast. SPS slides and the BOA lacing system put the glove over the top and allow each rider to get a dialed in fit within seconds. Hands down the best gloves I have worn.
Posted by Bret on 2nd Apr 2015
Crashed in a pair of these. One hand caught under the sliding bike the other smashed palm down on the tarmac sliding at least 30 + feet before slamming into an embankment. Bike smashed. Hands ok for the win. Moreover, the glove held up 100% without even a frayed seam. The palm slider ground down and saved my hands. I will no longer ride in anything else. They look odd - but they work. .
Best Gloves on the market
Posted by Unknown on 18th Feb 2015
I had a set of the original Handroids. They lasted 5 years before the palm started to grow holes. They survived a 100 mph crash and continued to serve after the crash. The new ones are even better. Major seam on the out side of the index finger, the thicker air foil on the hand, the re-formed and larger SPS plates and the revised BOA wheel are all pluses. The only draw back is the break in. They need a good sweat or a few days to get them "stretched". These gloves, with proper care, will out last ANY other glove on the market. For the price, they give you more than Alpinestars OR Dainese.
