The new Knox Meta-Sys Back Protector is one of the most capable spine protection systems currently available, it has an outer layer of hard polypropylene plates to spread impact forces and stop penetration, combined with a shock absorbing core of EPP.
The Meta-Sys has been tested and CE certified to the Motorcycle Back Protector Standard prEN1621 – 2 – 2011, the most demanding test currently available for motorcycle back armour. For warmer weather the engineers at Knox have given the Meta-Sys an air induction system for ventilation, as well as extra side adjustment straps to ensure a snug fit.
