Knox Urbane Pro Armored Shirt
Knox Urbane Pro Armored Shirt

The Urban Pro can be worn either as a liner under a civilian jacket of your choice, or on its own, as a way to beat the heat without sacrificing safety.

Knox has been making protective motorcycle gear longer than many reading this have been alive—circa 1981. And since 1994 the company has been making armored riding shirts, like the basic Lycra/elastne Armored Shirt we’ve sold for years, which slips under any unarmored jacket to instantly beef up the protection.

Enter the new Urbane Pro—the first Knox armored shirt to offer armor *and* abrasion resistance in one package. The jacket's shoulders and elbows are reinforced with abrasion-resistant panels, and non-critical areas made of uber breathable mesh.

While the Knox video below depicts this jacket being used on a sport bike on a closed track, we’re going to go on a limb and say that if you’re riding hard on a GSX-R you should probably invest in a more significant jacket. Knox also shows this jacket being worn on a flat track bike—entirely more appropriate.

Also appropriate: riding in New York City, where the need for armor is paramount, and abrasion resistance never hurts. 

And because New York summer city heat + traffic + sitting on a running engine = uncomfortable, sweaty mess, the Urbane Pro makes for a compelling choice as a vented jacket option that can be worn on its own all summer. And you don’t need to put it away when cooler weather comes. Layer over it with your favorite sweatshirt, and even rain shell over that.

Each Urbane Pro shirt is made in-house by Knox’s UK factory, using technical fabrics specially selected for their abrasion, cut and tear resistance.

* Our only qualm with this piece is the sizing—it simply runs a whole size small.  If you generally take a medium, buy a large, etc


** Nerdy Europe safety regulation sidenote: The CE Standard we all know and love has recently been updated. Beyond determining whether individual armor pieces meet a Level 1 or Level 2 impact test, the agency now has a holistic rating standard it applies to jackets and pants. Rated A through AAA, the test takes into account abrasion resistance at different zones, seam burst strength, etc. This Urbane Pro is rated "Class A." An armored leather jacket would be AA or AAA; and a full race suit would absolutely be rated AAA.
