Knee protection

PRICE: $749.95 (as a pair), $399.95 (per single brace)258x3794

KEY FEATURES:
-Polymer Hinge System that uses Synthetic ligaments that function like a human knee
-Self-tracking patella guard that transfers impacts through the brace and away from the knee
-Low-profile carbon composite frame that is strong and lightweight
-Straps are designed to resist brace movement and migration, keeping the brace where you want it while riding

-POD MX braces are covered by most insurance plans

WHAT WE LIKED:
-Knee cup is comfortable and does a great job at protecting in the event of a crash
-Overall the braces are very comfortable and are the closest to custom for off-the-shelf braces that we’ve tested
-Hinge is smooth and it’s nice to have different sized Synthetic ligaments to choose from in order to limit the amount of movement at the hinge
-Braces are very lightweight
-Carbon frame is durable and strong
-For riders that run their braces tight, the straps can be tightened down without discomfort
-The added protective guards, which are connected to the frame and sit on the top and bottom of the patella cup, give extra protection where not many knee braces do

WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE:
-The Velcro straps can move around at times while riding
-Additional pad on straps tends to fall off. It would be nice if this was built into the strap itself

WHAT WE REALLY THINK:

If you are in the market for knee protection, but don’t want to break the bank and spend the extra dough on custom braces, look no further than the POD MX knee brace. Of the braces we’ve tested over the years, the POD MX brace is by far the most comfortable and lightweight off-the-shelf brace we’ve put on. It’s also durable, and believe us when we say it, we’ve crashed tested the braces a couple times already and they have done their job.
