POD Releases New K8 Forged Carbon Knee Brace

Patented and medically certified, this knee protection system is clinically proven to reduce the prevalence and severity of common knee injuries. 

The new POD K8 knee brace is a culmination of lab study, plus the demands of world champion athletes over the past decade. Patented and medically certified, this knee protection system is clinically proven to reduce the prevalence and severity of common knee injuries.

Inspired by the human body, POD incorporates a brace design with patented Hinge technology that uses shock-absorbing synthetic ligaments. These ligaments, tested to 100,000 cycles without failure, are engineered from Vectra Fibers that are five times stronger than steel, to provide progressive, multi directional motion control.

This breakthrough technology delivers new levels of comfort, performance and 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 the knee, plus 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 and 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 and Formula 1, is exclusively used by POD.

Pod designed adaptive cuffs to accommodate muscle motion and disperse load. Antimicrobial frame liners enhance comfort, reduce odor and capture the interior straps and clips to anchor the brace to the leg and stop brace migration during your ride.

The brace is CE impact tested and certified full coverage guards protect against impacts, handlebar strikes, plus enhance comfort when kneeling.

The K8 is a completely interchangeable modular knee brace system that allows users to replace parts of the brace, at home or at the track, if they get damaged or wear out over time – saving time and money.
