The Pod MX K8 Knee Brace is a premium protection option and if you’re a rider that’s in the market for a brace to increase injury prevention, you can view the MX K8 as the option that balances comfort, adaptability, and protection well in every aspect.
At its core the MX K8 works off a lightweight carbon fiber chassis that forms the support structure for Pod’s unique True Motion hinge, a system that uses an artificial ligament to support your knee instead of a gear or cam based hinge you typically find. With the chassis and hinge working together, the K8 can deliver excellent impact protection from shin to thigh and stability to the knee joint in nearly every axis.
Pod built versatility into the K8 as well by including several spacers that let you customize the angle of lockout for your knee. They’ve also made the patella coverage completely removable, so with it removed you can use the brace in other sports where you need the support but not the impact protection.
