Knox Handroid Hand Armor Gloves - 2013

Not content to follow the crowd, Knox broke down the walls of accepted hand protection and created the most sophisticated and advanced motorcycling glove ever.

Patented Exo skeletal flexible spines cover the vulnerable knuckles, fingers and thumb and give full unrestricted movement. These link to a comfortable gel lined Metapod that covers the metacarpals and offers added protection to the back of the hand. On the palm, the tried and tested Sport Scaphoid Protection System is enhanced by additional sliding systems on all sides which ensure the sliders, not the leather, takes the brunt of the impact. An additional inner cuff slider works to support and enhance the SPS sliding effect. 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 Handroid live exoskeleton finger and knuckle protection on all fingers and thumb
  • Knox metapod protector
  • Knox Sport styled Scaphoid protection system
  • Knox wrist and cuff slider
  • "Dialed in" Boa lacing system
  • Tear resistant Kangaroo leather palm
  • Amara grip pad with silicon print for improved control
  • Japanese race quality drum dyed Aniline leather
  • Japanese polyester high tenacity thread
  • Superior fit and comfort
  • Item # 35881

Best gloves I have owned

OK, to start, I wanted to give the fit a 4.5 instead of a 4 or a 5 because the thumbs (at least on mine) run a little large, but that's the only complaint I have about the gloves. I use the Handroid as my everyday glove and they just get more comfortable every time I ride. The Boa lacing to secure the glove is amazing--especially since there isn't any Velcro that can come undone as has happened with other gloves I've owned after using them for a while. Instead of replacing gloves every year or so (I ride 300+ days a year) because the Velcro or the leather wearing out/drying out from sweating, the Handroids are starting their second summer without a problem. The safety features--especially the active exoskeleton and the palm pucks--give me a greater sense of safety while riding and have boosted my confidence while riding. That might be a false sense of security, but knowing that if I go down and put my palms down first, the glove isn't going to be shredded almost instantly and that I have more protection on the back of my hand than individual pucks on the fingers. When the gloves wear out, I'll be getting another pair. The price, while a bit rich for most people's blood, is worth it for what you get for the price of admission.

Amazing...The Future of Racing Gear.

Out of the box these things have a finish and look unlike any thing I have ever seen before, every thing is perfect and top shelf. Got them out of the packaging and slipped them on and they actually fit great, I got a large and had some doubt as to fit but there really comfortable and can tell when they break in they'll be super comfy not to mention protective. Can't wait to get out and ride in them, I highly recommend them, WAY cheaper than a hospital visit!

Loved the gloves; a bit too snug for me, but the design and construction were spot-on.

Amazing!

have a large hand and the 2XL is a little tight, even after being broken in. I recommend ordering a size up since XL or 2XL typically fit me. The gloves do have perforation but I've never noticed any airflow while gripping the handle bars.

Superb gloves

I have ridden/raced with top-of-the-line offerings from Dainese, Spyke, Held, etc and these Handroids are right on par. Super-soft palm and fingers allow excellent feel of the bars and controls. Long gauntlet with the BOA system is easy to pull on/off and tighten over any jacket. They're not cheap, but neither is reconstructive surgery if your gloves come apart in a crash. Be safe.

These are by far the nicest gloves I have seen or worn, they are pricey but the safety and extreme durability of them strongly out-weighs the price.

Wow!

I has had these gloves for about two months now. I bought a size large thinking they would fit great. When I recieved them they came in their original packing and only a few days after I had purchased them. The flies were tight eapecially in the pinky finger. I wore these gloves for a week straight during a MSF course and they broke right in. They breathe very well and I get comments about how they look all the time. Definately would buy again!

Love it

Couldn't be happier. They look awesome, fit great and the BOA system is second to none. So fast and easy to use. No other glove out there comes close to the ease of use. Glove looks amazing. I get compliments all the time. Fit is great, very comfortable.

Glove

A great glove offering superior protection!! I saw these on my friend and really compared them to my Dainese Pro Metal gloves. Much more leather and over all protection. Love the exo skeleton design, it adds to the coolness factor, but they are functional. Like any glove, took a while for them to break in, but after about 3 days of riding, they felt great. They do turn heads too.

Almost perfect

The exoskeleton feature of the glove seems to slightly restrict my hand from completely closing into a fist. This is annoying if you are trying to get something done without removing the glove.

almost perfect

Gloves feel broken in out of the box. You can say, they fit like a glove. Mine seem to be defective. The stitching along the thumb started to burst open. Sent them back the guys at customer service are awesome, no questions and they took care of my issue. I am now recommending to all my Marines at the base to do business with Motorcycle Superstore.

Crazy Cool, but Super Snug

I've had these for a few months now, and I thought I'd have broken them in by now, but the XXL is still very snug around the knuckle area. They fit well, I love the supple kangaroo leather and the advanced safety features, they're just very very snug still. Sometimes my hands are sore and cramped-up after a long ride. I like the gloves and feel very safe in them, I just wish they came one more size bigger (I'm 6'3" 210lbs with big ol' mits...). I will try some baseball glove oil next...

knox handroid hand armor gloves

Bought these gloves because I wanted the best. Ordered the 2x largest size available still too small really need a 3x bad. Everything about the gloves was fantastic, all the features on the gloves are something out of the space age, hate to give these gloves to my son, but I have to, just to tight.
