POD's NEW K8 Forged Carbon Knee Brace...coming soon!
Today, Athletes are training harder, bikes are getting faster, the intensity is increasing, lap times are dropping, though protective equipment hasn’t evolved or improved as fast – UNTIL NOW.
Inspired by the human body, POD has taken hinge design to another level with a patented Hinge that uses shock-absorbing synthetic ligaments. These ligaments, tested to 100,000 cycles without failure, are engineered from Vectra Fibres that are 5 times stronger than steel, to provide progressive, multi directional motion control.
This breakthrough technology delivers new levels of comfort, performance & reliability, making traditional mechanical hinges technically obsolete.
The Ligaments form part of the patented Knee Protection System. The hinge housing controls the range of motion while providing a smooth contact surface against your knee, plus your motocross pants – to avoid abrasion and damage. Load dampening hinge inserts can be integrated to limit full extension and reduce the time the knee is in the ‘at risk’ position.
Formable Knee grippers, plus interchangeable hinge shims and pads capture and control the knee for a precise & secure fit.
Low profile forged carbon frames allow for optimal load transfer away from the knee joint, without compromising feel for the bike. This advanced composite technology and construction process, adopted in aerospace & formula 1, is exclusively used by POD.
Add Adaptive Cuffs to accommodate muscle motion and disperse load. Antimicrobial Frame liners enhance comfort, reduce odour plus capture the interior straps and clips to anchor the brace to your leg, and stop brace migration during your ride.
CE impact tested & certified Full Coverage guards protect against impacts, handlebar strikes, plus enhance comfort when kneeling.
The result is a completely interchangeable Modular Knee Brace System that allows you to replace parts of the brace, at home or at the track, if they get damaged or wear out over time – saving you time and money. Check them out...!
