New Knox Kompakt back protector

Published: 14 February 2008

Protection specialists Knox has launched the third generation of its roll up back protector, the Kompakt.

The back protector weighs less than 600g, making it exceptionally light. Despite its light weight the Kompakt exceeds current CE standards for back protectors.

The back protector has a hexagonal honeycomb structure which absorbs energy and works in the same way as a cars crumple zone.

To secure the Kompakt there is a wide Velcro waistband with Increased Posture Support (IPS) and an over the shoulder strap system, with the option to fit a Knox chest protector.
