There is a new standard in knee brace protection with the development of the Pod MX K700. Pod MX invested in research to medically understand the natural movement of the human knee to develop the K700s hinge system that mimics natural movement, resulting in superior safety. The Polymer Hinge System in the K700 knee brace features Synthetic Ligaments that function like the human knee, to provide secure natural motion. The Pod MX K700 knee brace provides impact protection to the patella with the self-tracking patella guard that remains in position in front of the knee to transfer impact energy throughout the knee brace without directing impact to the knee. A carbon composite frame allows the K700 knee brace to keep a low-profile lightweight design without sacrificing strength and rigidity. Pod MX uses a plush anti-bacterial moisture wicking frame liner on the K700 for a forget-about-it comfort fit. Large straps that also feature the moisture wicking comfort fabric, maintain the knee brace position for optimum function. The Pod MX K700 knee brace is ideal for adult riders of any level with ACL, PCL, MCL, and LCL instability. The K700 design also protects against rotary and combined instabilities. POD ligament knee braces are medical grade products, covered by most heath insurance plans, with a doctors prescription. Check with your doctor and insurance provider first. Sold as a pair.
"The way the upper, and for that matter the lower main pads are held in place (the small Velcro pads) are not sufficient. I have worn them now three times, for more then 4 hours at a time, and the pads/linings will not stay in place. For the upper pad this is a big problem, as the patella cup will now ride under the lining/pad cover as to float above it as it is designed. For that matter, after about 10 hours of total use, they will hardly hold the lining (especially around the sides) in place even before you put them on.
As I have worn them, I will not be able to return them. I don’t fault Motosport.com, they didn’t design them. I will be contacting manufacture to see if there is anything that can be done, hoping that I am not out of pocket $800.00."
The Ultra Cell Knee Protection System is without question the most technologically-advanced Knee Protection System available. Several patented revolutionary design concepts come together in unison to create this System. The A.R.C. Cuffs ability to be totally adjustable for fit, yet remain rigid, along with a superior fastening design in partnership with Boa Technologies, a natural free-motion, rolling-gliding hinge, tibial plateau-capturing frame design, brace-to-boot tether attachment, and a full time-full coverage patella cup, sets this knee brace decades ahead of all the rest. A.C.M. FRAME: Anatomically correct design. Carbon fiber epoxy Matrix. Rigid and lightweight, impact distributing structure. Materials: Carbon Fiber epoxy Matrix. Weight: 1.6 pounds. ASYMMETRIC-GLIDE HINGE: Tracks the natural "rolling-gliding" motion of the knee joint. Asymmetrical design allows each hinge to set properly. Allows for automatic tibia alignment of lower frame. Adjustable external regulator from 0 to 30 degrees. Condyle shims for fine tuning fit. A.R.C. CUFF: Adjustable Retention Control. Multiform rigid lateral support. Built in Anti-Rotation connection. Stainless steel retention strips. Inverted adjustment increases lateral rigidity. Thermo-Formed EV50 shock absorbent foam padding. ANTI-ROTATION TETHER: Links the brace to the boot, making them as one. Transfers forces of a lower leg rotation. Adjustable to suit each individual. DUAL-INDEPENDENT SECUREMENT SYSTEM: Medial Macro-Adjustment. Superior security to strapping. Boa closure system provides smooth even closure and no pressure points. Quick release tabs. TELE-TRI PATELLA CUP: Telescoping Three piece design. Easily removable. High-impact Nylon 6 material. Full range of motion coverage of the knee cap. Thermo-Formed EV50 shock absorbent foam padding. WATER RESISTANT: Non-corrosive metals. Non-corrosive composites. Hand washable soft materials. UNDERSLEEVES (Included with Braces): Conically tapered cut to match the legs natural contour. Ventilated mesh promotes air flow; reduces heat build up by wicking moisture away from skin. Flat stitched quad seam for a smooth, durable finish. Durable fold-over elastic band. The braces come with an Allen wrench for making these adjustments. Note: Sold as a pair.
"They’re a great set of guards; however I had two concerns: 1) They are little ‘bulky”, and although they offer great overall support and protection, they are a pain to get ridding pants over them. 2) I had a hard time felling the bike between my legs. I ended up returning them a getting a pair of the PODS K700. I would recommend these, although I would look into the K700 as well.
