Size Guide

The latest version of the award winning Knox Handroid long cuff glove, is the Mk4. Due to its design these are the most striking motorcycle gloves ever made. The design includes features such as the scaphoid protection system as well as the eye catching exo skeleton finger spines which cover the tops of the fingers for impact protection as well as a unique closing system which always ensures a perfect fit.

Now the latest Handroid takes all of these features and refines them. The finger spines are now softer and of a lower, more aerodynamic profile, yet no less effective when it comes to protection.  The body of the glove is made from drum dyed Korean leather. This has been chosen for its feel, light weight and strength. Complementing this is 0.8mm kangaroo hide which is used on the palm. While the strength and feel offered by this hide is exceptional it’s still responsibly and ethically sourced.

While the strength and feel offered by this hide is exceptional it’s still responsibly and ethically sourced.

A new SPS impact system is the most recent development of the Knox patented Scaphoid protection system. This now has Micro-Lock armour incorporated into the design of each slider. Because the BOA® Fit System is so effective the Handroid now no longer needs a second Velcro strap on the wrist. Box construction of the fingers makes for an even more comfortable glove that fits even better than previous models.

The CE testing for the Handroid covers 15 different tests. As a result independent testers have given the gloves a CE EN 13594- 2015 rating. This covers so much including the  materials used, the fit, the cut of the glove, its abrasion resistance, the all-important seam and tear strength as well as impact absorption.

Separate tests were conducted for design and construction as well as tests on the materials used. This included checking features as detailed as the pH value of the leather as well as its chromium V1 content. In addition to the sizing dexterity the cadmium content and even the water vapour transmission were also measured. Strength tests included the Handroids’ restraint tear strength, the seam strength, cut resistance, abrasion resistance and, of course the impact resistance and the size of the protective area. The Handroid passes all with flying colours.

The Handroid is available in two sub models, the ‘Long Cuff’ and the short cuff ‘Pod’. The Long cuff is available in four different colours; black, black with white, red or blue. The Pod is available in 2 colours Black and Black/Sand The range of sizes runs from XS all the way to 3XL. The Boa fit system now comes with a lifetime guarantee and the whole glove is CE certified to EN 13594.

    The Handroid fits me very well, no need to break in the gloves, the kangaroo leather is very soft and all the protection fits very well into my hand. Wearing the Handroid takes a little bit more time than some gloves but the protection and comfort make it worthwhile! Cheers for a gloves well built!

    Usual Knox quality. Handroid gloves are the best I have ever worn; after a few hours riding they have softened up slightly. They are comfortable, great feel and a breeze to remove and fit.

    After 1 year of soft usage, one day, celebrated and greatly-praised BOA Clouser System’s cord was teard out from holder. Not even 1 fall from bike, not even one scratch, just broke off while i was tighting it up.
    Sad, very sad.
    Today I’ll try to ask dealer where i bought them if there are any warranty for that case, but i don’t think miracle would happen.

    The Good:
    When you put on the glove for the first time you think it’s massive. The bulk of the glove gets you and you think it’s going to be one of those uncomfortable heavy, cumbersome gloves. AS SOON as the glove hits the handlebars your worries are over! The Kangaroo skin palm molds to the hand and actually INCREASES the feeling you have with the handlebars.

    The bad:
    * The little finger isn’t tied to the next finger like you see in the pro glove (to prevent the little finger doesn’t get snapped back).
    * The actual support for each finger SHOULD be restricted when bending back so that you cant over extend your fingers.

    I first started using Knox at the beginning of last season and now I’d never look back! The design of all products are ao highly developed that it allows me to focus on my riding – (the important bit) and feel confident and comfortable with the safety gear im using! Would highly recommend to anyone.

    i just thought id share my experience with you guys. Last weekend my self and 11 mates took off for a 4 day blast through the Victorian high country. Winding over some of the planets best roads (search Jindabyne to Khancoban on google maps), everything from 200kph plus blasts to 1st gear full lock corners. We travelled 1800klms, went thru countless tanks of fuel and all in my pair of Knox Handroids. Seriously awesome glove. thanks again. Best gloves I’ve had.

    I was riding my Suzuki Hayabusa on the A13 in Essex when I was in collision with a London Taxi, I was catapulted into the side of the taxi due to heavy braking which caused the bike to throw me over the handlebars. I hit the Taxi doing approx 50mph, I remember the first body part to impact was my hands which I put out to protect myself, they were in turn ‘crushed’ against the car by my body, I weighed approx 95kg. I went for the Handroids as I like the BOA system and how it protects my wrists, as I have pins in my left wrist from a previous accident.
    My Injuries were: Broken femur 2 places
    Broken Sternum
    Broken Clavicle
    Punctured lungs
    Split Liver
    Bruised heart
    I was in a coma for almost 1 month and considered a fatal accident by the police investigating until 1 week after I came out of the coma. My hands and wrists had no injury at all, I slid down the road and the scaphoid ‘savers’ did their job very well. I fully believe these gloves have saved me from very serious injury.

    Dear everyone.
    Just a quick review to thank you for providing the Knox protective clothing for James. It was an horrific impact at Thruxton , and apart from his leg injury and his back and hands are fine.
    I am sure the protectors must save many many lives. He said the gloves were amazing and he didn’t have a scratch on him there either
    Thanks again

    On the way back home from the ride I had a mishap and went down. Luckily for me, all of the protective gear that I was wearing functioned exactly the way they are supposed to. My boots got pretty banged up, my jacket was basically torn apart, and my brand new Hadroids were mangled, especially my left glove. I only suffered some minor bumps and bruises, my left knee took the brunt of it, but my hands are absolutely fine. I know for a fact that I landed on my hands and slid. I also know that were it not for your top quality gloves protecting my hands so well, I would not be typing this letter now. I am still in complete disbelief that my hands were not injured in some way.
    Again, I would like to thank you for making a superior product! I can attest to anybody about the quality and protective capacity of the Knox Handroid. You now have an extremely satisfied, lifelong customer!

    OMG they arrived this morning…..How you guys sell these for £160 a pair and not each I don’t know. Your designers took input from real bikers, and I’m sure medical experts. Little touches like the wrist strap protection under the palm flap, the rivet/tab to help pull the glove on, to the fitting wheel “pull” quick release. I’m at my desk and I still have the gloves on, these gloves are awesome! These are not just cool looking gloves these are seriously engineered protection and should have a little union jack somewhere to show the world. Just discovered the #1 on the index finger pad, so when I raise this finger to recognise another biker or person in the street they get the No. 1 message.

    After seeing a good friend and close rival crash at croft and suffer serious hand injuries i decided to invest in some quality race gloves. After studying the market I decided on the very impressive knox handroids. During the next race meeting at cadwell park on the 2nd may shortly after taking the lead i had a big off at the gooseneck travelling around 100mph which destroyed my bike snapping the frame in half. After bowling over four or five times i came to a halt. My new knox handroids and knox back protector had done their job brilliantly and to everyones amazement i got up and walked away with out a mark on me. Big thanks to knox for another great product and i wont be racing with out my handroids on!! Thanks again.

    Well what can I say about my Knox protection? As always before the ride on went the trusty back protector and my Handroid gloves! Off we go around Leicestershires roads on a Sunday morning for a blast with the boys until on the way back a notorious hairpin catches me napping for just a second and I’m picking myself out of the ditch after a 20mph off, the kit performed faultlessly and I was at work within the hour with no injuries just a dented wallet due to a smashed nosecone!
    Keep up the good work Knox! And remember everyone WEAR the kit one day it could just save your life!

    First of all they are the most comfortable gloves I’ve ever worn, and their “feedback” is excellent, and secondly, they do “exactly what it says on the tin!!”. I crashed at the end on the main straight at Knockhill while travelling at some considerable speed and continued bikeless in close proximity to tarmac and gravel for quite a distance……! On examination of myself on coming to a stop, I was gratified to note that although I had taken several hits to my Handroid gloves, there was no damage to my hands or wrists. I am also grateful to record that the aftersales service is top notch. Orra best!!!

    Hi, I was racing in the Knockhill Race club preinjection 600 race series when I, unfortunately highsided out of the race at approximately 120mph on the back straight. I was wearing Knox handroid gloves, a knox aegis back protector with Knox chest protector, and knox padded impact shorts. I am happy to report that although knocked out cold…. I had no upper or lower torso damage, due no doubt to the excellent protective qualities of the knox body armour. I am also pleased to report that I sustained no hand/digit damage thanks to the handroid gloves. It is remarkable that despite the speed and ferocity of the accident I emerged relatively unscathed thanks to my knox protection! I’ll be purchasing a new knox back protector and shorts, as I was cut out of these at the trackside, and I wont be going racing ( or when I ride on the road) without Knox protection!.

    I bought the Knox Handroids almost immediately after they were officially released. After 2 years of wear and tear of almost daily commuting, I thought you guys may appreciate some feedback.
    First off, I’m very happy with these gloves. Luckily I’ve never crashed in them, but I’ve seen how well they protect other crashes. My hands are essential to how I make my living, so I decided to spend top dollar protecting them. The Handroids are very comfortable, they fit perfectly and allow full range of movement and most importantly I feel safer in these gloves than I’ve ever felt wearing any other.

    I felt that I should write to you regarding the great customer service that I have just received from yourselves. I bought a pair of Handroids about 18 months ago, and have worn them for approx 15000 miles. The gloves have been great, I find them very comfortable, and glad to say that I haven’t had to try the protection out (although I am certain that it would do what it is supposed to do). Its Fantastic to see that there are still Great British companies that pride themselves with looking after their customers rather than making a fast buck. Thanks for the great products and service.

    Let me start off by saying you guys rock. About a year and a half ago I bought myself a pair Know Handroids because I kept hearing good things about them. I picked up a pair and loved riding in them. They felt great, looked great, and I hoped they would protect me as well as they looked.
    Last week they got put to the test. I went down going around a turn at about 105mph. I low sided because of some gravel, slid across the road, across the gravel, and flew into a ditch which then turned into a corn field. And my hands came out perfectly! Without even a scratch, bruise, burn etc. I did mess up my left knee, my back and my left thigh since they weren’t covered by something that Knox makes! Way to make one damn amazing product. Thanks again.

    I’m using Knox Handroids at the moment and they’re really clever. I was testing them at the Ulster Grand Prix in 2010 when Dan Kneen stopped suddenly right in front of me when he accidentally hit the kill switch coming out of the hairpin. I ran into the back of him and was thrown over the top of the bike and landed hands first. The Handroids have palm sliders on them so instead of your gloves gripping the tarmac and sending your body over the top – which is when you break your scaphoids – they slide down the road. I was very sceptical initially but they actually worked perfectly. As racers, we help to develop kit for road riders and good manufacturers listen to you.

    I landed front first onto my hands and chest and slid for a good 150 yards on asphalt, before rolling in the gravel. Amazingly, the gloves were still very much intact and could quite easily be used again. The innovative scaphoid protector did its job perfectly and saved my hands from any damage

    These are the gloves everybody asks about the most, and just one look at them tells you why. Be assured, this kind of thing is the future and not just for gloves. Plenty of manufacturers are looking at this technology and many have been playing with it already. Knox beat them all to the post, though. Beautifully built and hardy for track gloves they’re not even the most expensive here. Plus the wrist closure system is utter genius, unlike Velcro it should never get tired and it also locks to your wrist in a way that makes you feel secure. Knox has used nothing but the best, so for a first effort, they’re frankly incredible. They’re that good that racers have been asking to wear them without expecting pay. That alone should tell you what you need to know about the Handroid.

    Hi Guys and Gals,
    I bought my Knox Handroid gloves shortly after their release. They have outlasted all the other gloves i previously had including Arlen-ness and Alpinestars. They are robust enough for daily use with the only weak point being the white plastic knuckle shields, although i know from experience these can be bought seperate and replaced. My only real gripe is the lack of colour choice, when i bought mine blue and white was an option that no longer seems to be in the range which is a shame. I would love to see some yellow Fluo ones etc.

Technical Information

BOA® Fit System

Delivering fit solutions purpose-built for performance, the BOA® Fit System consists of three integral parts: a micro-adjustable dial, a super-strong lightweight lace and low friction lace guides. The MK IV no longer relies on a secondary retaining wrist strap, but is now a simple 1 step process activated entirely by the BOA® Fit System for a fast, effortless, precision fit.

Metacarpal & Exoskeleton

The striking exoskeleton spines now have a much lower profile, a softer feel and are more aero dynamic than before, yet just as effective.
The metacarpal protector covering the back of the hand houses a gel lining for impact absorption.

Scaphoid Protection System

The new SPS Impact is the latest development of the Knox patented Scaphoid protection system and has the added benefit of MICRO-LOCK impact protection incorporated into the slider.

Kangaroo Palm

Sustainable 0.8mm Kangaroo hide has been selected for its superior strength and enhanced feel on the palm and fingers. By weight, it is still stronger than any other leather. This continues to be sourced from the same Australian family business that have been experts in their field since 1891.

Size Guide

Palm Circumference (A): Palm circumference is the total measurement around the widest part of the palm and over the knuckles. Put the tape around your palm and make a fist, then note the measurement.

Hand Length (B): Measure from your wrist crease to the end of your middle finger.

Measure your hand length and width and choose size the closest to your measurements. This should fit your hand correctly. If your hand fits one measure but not the 2nd, or if you prefer a looser fit, we would advise choosing the next size up.

Men's Hand Size S M L XL XXL XXXL
Palm Circumference (mm) 215 230 245 260 275 290
Hand Length (mm) 186 193 200 207 214 221

HAND ARMOUR

Hands are one of our greatest assets, vitally important for gripping, holding, feeling, and modulating. In short, they’re worth protecting!

HANDROID GLOVES

The Handroid has been the Pinnacle of the Knox Hand Armour collection since 2010, and the 4th generation Mk4 is still the ultimate in motorcycle sports design.
