PODMX is a company that was introduced specifically to find the ultimate knee brace that provides the best safety features built with top shelf components. PODMX focused on developing a hinge point at the knees that matches the natural movement. By matching the natural movement of the knee, energy dissipation can be transmitted throughout the knee brace, avoiding the knees weak points. The PODMX knee brace incorporates synthetic ligaments in the hinge to match the knees natural range of motion. This groundbreaking Polymer hinge within the hinge stop housing provides maximum medial and lateral protection. The hinge stop housing on the PODMX knee brace has been set up from the factory with a 15° stop to match most riders with standard biomechanical features. PODMX also offers a 12.5°, 17.5°, and 20.0° hinge stop housings. The front patella guard on the PODMX knee brace “floats” over the knee cap. This design provides exceptional protection by avoiding direct contact with the knee during impact and efficiently dissipates energy throughout the carbon fiber frame. The PODMX knee brace was designed to be less intrusive then other knee braces by constructing the frame out of carbon fiber composite. The dual carbon fiber layers keep the weight at a measly 660 grams or 1.46 pounds. Using carbon fiber not only keeps the weight down, but it also keeps a low profile so you do not loose bike feel and feedback. Lining the PODMX knee brace is vented foam and thermo-formed pressure-point padding. Both the vented foam and the thermo-formed pressure-point padding are removable for easy cleaning while the pressure-point padding is interchangeable. The interchangeable pads are available in a 3mm and 6mm thickness to optimize comfort and protection. Keeping the PODMX knee brace in place is accomplished with the systematic strapping system. Four straps are used to ensure the knee brace remains in the optimal postion. To increase comfort POD uses thermoformed pads on the straps directly above and below the hinge. The straps are left oversized to allow for the rider to customize the length. The PODMX knee brace was built to last through the demands of pushing the limits with the use of stainless steel on all the fasteners throughout the brace.

"i got two of them right when they came out and they are alot better and easier to move your knee in then my old braces, EVS webs, but after riding 8hrs. every week on them i broke right through the carbon fiber and the metal arm inside on both of them. they sent me two new ones and said they fixed the problem and havent had any trouble in a while."
Every few years a product hits the shelf that turns the off-road industry on its head. Leatt has done just that with their revolutionary Leatt Moto GPX Club neck brace. The Leatt Moto GPX Club neck brace was designed to prevent these extreme movements of the rider's neck in the event of a crash: hyper flexion, hyper extension, lateral hyper flexion, axial loading, and posterior hyper translation. The Leatt Moto GPX Club neck brace was designed to re-direct the helmet in the event of a crash so that the brace absorbs and re-directs that energy in a safe manner instead of the neck taking the majority of the impact which could result in a serious injury. Designed by medical professionals with the motorcycle enthusiast in mind. The glass-reinforced nylon fiber and Kevlar body was shaped in a way as to not effect the riders mobility or visibility. With the use of glass-reinforced nylon fiber and Kevlar Leatt was able to create a brace strong enough to absorb significant impacts and stay light at 850 gram so that the rider did not experience fatigue while using the brace on their motorcycle or ATV. Sizing Guideline: Small: 4-16 years old (thin build) Medium: 16 years + (average to bigger build)
