Knox Chest Guard
Customer Product Reviews
Ordered a small which was very small so exchanged hassle free. Good product once I got the right size seems like it will absorb a lot of the initial impact in an off but hopefully I won't have to find out. Little bulky under leathers but great under textiles you forget it's there.
Fits well and despite being dense foam didn't overheat me at a very hot Mallory track day. Personally I think it could be improved my putting some hard plastic panels on it, as at the end of the day its just a sheet of foam in a fancy liner, but I would rather crash with it on than without it....
Well made and comfy
I bought this for track days, to go along with a new back protector. Not uses on track yet, but have done a few hours on the road to help 'adjust' the leathers. It does add a couple of inches to your chest, so if your leathers are really tight it might not be comfortable. Lots of airflow should help if we ever see the sun again! I haven't bothered attaching it to the back protector, as it made it a faff to get on and off - I just put it in my leathers as I zip up and it doesn't move anywhere.
I bought this as a just-in-case measure for a track day. I spent about two and a half hours commuting and the whole day on the track wearing it. It was light and non-restrictive and kept the chill off my chest at 6am yet didn't cause me to overheat during the day. It fitted really well with the Knox Aegis back protector although if you run the braces through the chest protector it's not that easy to put on/take off as a unit. The only down side that I could see is that you add a few inches to your chest so if you're wearing a once piece that's already quite snug then it makes your leathers a bit of a nut crusher when you stand up!
Excellent product. Every biker should have one.
Upon opening I initially thought it may be a bit cumbersome on wearing. I have the Knox spine protector too - a fantastic combination - the pair fit easily around my torso. Off the bike I did feel a bit like 'ironman' however on the bike where it matters it feels comfortable, secure and not as cumbersome as I initially thought. So much so I use it every time without fail. Its also great to know that my chest is much better protected, providing confidence, off course safety and a bit of extra warmth! I 100% recommend this product. Very happy.
Excellent product - recommended
Perfect fit in conjunction with existing Knox back protector. The back protector straps easily attach to the chest protector. Your jacket will feel a little tighter but the feeling of more security is very comforting. It also increases the wind proofing of your jacket (for obvious reasons) and you can't feel those stones or big bees smashing into your chest! Get one, it's worth every penny.
