The Biomech is sports inspired hand armour that features an opaque knuckle protector. Soft impact absorbent honeycomb gel fills the cavity and can be seen through the opaque window on the Knuckle guard. When under pressure from a clenched fist the gel expands as it is pushed up from the inside.
A small metapod on the back of the hand houses the same impact absorbent honeycomb gel.




Superfabric, featuring ceramic beads, covers the side of the little finger


On the palm the tried and tested Sport Scaphoid Protection System is enhanced by an additional inner cuff slider which works to support the SPS sliding effect.


Super strong and tear resistant Kangaroo leather covers the inside palm and fingers.


The unique Knox Boa Lacing system works to draw the side pods over the wrist with a targeted multi adjustable closure. Easily tightened, just dial in the right amount of torque for you. To release simply pull the dial.

how do you like these compared to the held phantoms?
The Knox Handroid would be more of a competitor for the Held Phantoms.

The Knox Biomech is still a great glove; the SPS slider system works extremely well. We have a lot of crash data at this point and this system is proven to work and save your palms from tearing on impact when hitting the ground.
The BOA system is obviously a huge advancement in gloves, the system is very easy to use and allows you to tight the glove evenly and to very small increments.

For $80 less in retail the Biomech is a fantastic glove for the money.
