Rated: Knox Handroid gloves

Tester Dan Sutherland

Time tested: 1700 miles

What’s good? The Knox Handroid is certainly a glove that looks the part. The twist-action Boa lacing closure at the wrist and exo skeletal structure along the fingers looks seriously cool. I was initially sceptical and thought this was purely style over substance, but the closer you look the more you notice just how many intricate safety features the Handroid has. For a performance-inspired glove these have been very comfortable on my daily commute too. A leather seam also runs up the index finger on both gloves to neaten up the stitching. Though this wasn’t designed to do anything else, it also works well as a visor wipe in the rain.  

What’s not? The Boa lacing system is easy enough to operate and taking the gloves off is fine, however a Velcro system would be a lot quicker to use when putting them on. This design also makes the wrist of the glove quite bulky, meaning I can’t fit them inside my textile jackets when riding.
