Knee Braces provide knee support and protection during those long races or trail rides.

Very slow get off with one of my knees hitting the ground perfectly on the knee cap caused the knee brace to explode; the impact would not have hurt my knee without a knee brace on... Also had to use double sided tape on both braces to reattach Velcro on both braces after wearing them the second ride; I returned the pair to Alpinestars and they gave me a $350.00 credit to buy things they carried in their warehouse but this was the third time I had worn them on relatively short rides...Read All Reviews

I got these a couple years ago and wear them every time I ride. I like them because I feel not only am I getting some protection in the form of hyper-extension and ligament protection, but also from impact. They are pretty easy to get on overall, but do take a few extra minutes. The velcro straps get caught in the liners on my pants and tend to loosen up while I'm riding and I don't really notice until I'm done and there are some pressure points on the back of the knee, but nothing terrible. Maybe I'm not wearing them right or they aren't fitted well to my legs, but overall they are good. They seem like one of the best to buy off the shelf though without custom fitment.Read All Reviews

My 14 year old son is new to motocross and has friends that wear these braces. He is very inexperienced and rode in his first race without braces or pads and ended up having a crash and landed on his knee. He was pretty sore for a while so we decided he couldn’t ride until he had some sort of protection. He tried his friends out and liked them. He loves wearing his own pair now and says they feel great without being restrictive. As his parents it was a great investment into his safety. Would definitely recommend to others.Read All Reviews
