I bought these with a pair of the K8 2.0's. They work as advertised. They minimize any rub and keep the braces comfortable. The only thing I wasn't to crazy about is the fact that the printed knee zone on the front has pretty much fallen off after one cycle through the wash and that the part you overlap the brace with got snagged up on a part of the velcro on my SG12's. Aside from that, they certainly get the job done. My recommendation to Pod would be to find a more durable print or sublimate it on there.
