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

I wanna like these but im not sold on them. These don't work as good for a tall rider as they would a smaller rider. Being tall and having long legs places the 2 middle straps right near the crease behind your knee and even with knee brace socks it takes a toll on the skin behind the knee, big pinch point. A shorter rider would have the straps further away from the crease at the back of the knee due to the legs being shorter and also when sitting, you don't have to bend the knee as much. For a rider 6' and up I would not recommend them. Im 6'3" and prefer a different brace. They tend to slip a little bit and the hooks at the top and bottom of the brace are gimmicky imo.Read All Reviews

These are the most comfortable knee braces I've ever worn. Coming from the Asterisk Ultra Cell's with the web/lace backing system, I was hesitant of the straps irritating the backs of my legs and the lower profile frame offering less protection. I was wrong. They are substantially, slimmer and less bulky but offer the same amount of coverage and protection. Also, they are more minimalistic in design compared to the ultra Cell, I don't see any part on these failing in the future where the old ultracell's failed in multiple places, namely the plastic straps, lower knee cup attachment, and the ratcheting web/lace mechinism popping out of socket. Hope this helps..Read All Reviews

These are a great pair of braces. I've only ridden them for a couple rides so far but they are surprisingly comfortable and I hardly notice them compared to what I expected. They are pretty low profile for how comprehensive of protection they offer, but you should still make sure the riding pants you use have a good amount of room inside. I can't speak to the durability yet so time will tell but I'm impressed so far.Read All Reviews
