Joking aside, crashing hurts and there’s two things that you really need to protect in my opinion: both your back and your noggin, which is why I’ll never head out on two wheels without a trusted back protector – and this jobbie from Knox might just be my favourite yet. Between us, I have a torso the size of a partially grown child which means I’ve regularly struggled to find the perfect fit, yet thanks to the wrap around vest-like design of the track vest, it fits like a charm without poking out the top or riding up. My suit is fairly tight on the chest yet even so it’s not restrictive or too chunky when riding. Once it’s on you can barely even feel it’s there. The mesh is nicely done and even though I’ve thrown it about, sent it through thousands of miles of sweat and pouring rain and had it folded in all sorts of positions to fit in luggage, it still looks and feels like new. Top marks, Knox.
