POD MX K300 KNEE BRACE
PRICE: $499.95 (pair), $264.95 (each)
-Inspired by the human body, the patented Human Motion Hinge uses shock-absorbing ligaments engineered from advanced materials to provide natural triaxial knee motion combined with ultimate support.
-The K300 knee brace in the POD MX range is injection molded in glass-reinforced nylon for structural strength and shares the same modular design and features as the premium knee brace.
-Interior Strap loops capture your leg to resist rotational forces and brace migration.
-Self-Tracking Patella guard stays positioned in front of your knee and transfers impacts through out the brace and away from the knee itself.
-Antibacterial moisture-wicking frame liners, condylepads and strap pads keep you cool and comfortable.
WHAT WE LIKE
-K300 knee brace is extremely lightweight.
-The polymer ligament in the hinges allows the knee brace to be virtually frictionless.
-Floating patella cup keeps the brace from binding up while riding.
-Velcro straps are comfortable behind the legs, and they keep the brace from sliding down.
-On the bike, the slim design doesn’t interfere with gripping.
WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE
-While the braces were comfortable to wear, the inside of one of our tester’s knees did manage to get some minor bruising after a long day of riding.
WHAT WE REALLY THINK
Lightweight, comfortable, affordable, and unobtrusive to our bike, the Pod MX K300 knee brace offers all the qualities that we look for when we ride. To make things even better, the floating patella cup is able to detach and you’re able to use it for a variety of other sports.
