Pod K8 2.0 Carbon Knee Brace

POD K8 2.0 Forged Carbon Knee Brace in a Pair - POD Motocross Enduro Body Protection

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.  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.

POD K8 V2 Knee Brace

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 K8 adapts to me and means that I get a custom fit for ultimate comfort and performance.”

TOMMY SEARLE | CLS KAWASAKI MONSTER ENERGY

Many of the world’s leading athletes trust POD to reinforce their knees without compromising performance while thousands of recreational athletes rely on POD to stay active. POD is the first choice of Dakar Champion Marc Coma, 5 x Enduro-X champ Taddy Blazusiak, GP MX1 Rider Tommy Searle, Erzberg champ Jonny Walker, MX legend Andrew Short and many others.

POD K8 V2 Knee Brace

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 K8 V2 Knee Brace

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.  We're so confident in the Strength and protection of the Unbreakable K8 frames that we back it up with an industry leading 5yr Warranty.

The Adaptive Cuffs were designed to conform to various leg shapes, while adapting to muscle movement. They accommodate muscle motion and disperse load reducing the risk of skeletal fractures.

POD K4 2.0 Knee Brace features:

  • The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body, with three large bones held together by four ligaments that are vital for joint stability and proper function. Because that reason, the K4 Knee Brace has been certified as a medical device to help prevent leg and knee injuries such as ACL, MCL, PCL, LCL, Rotary and Combined instabilities.
  • 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.
  • The brand new Quick-Loc Clip System & low profile interior straps anchor the brace to your leg quicker and easier than ever. No more waste of time before a ride!
  • All technical equipment requires scheduled maintenance, and POD’s simple modular design allows you to replace worn out liners & straps, rebuild the hinge system and replace damaged impact guards. That means you can buy the parts you need to service or rebuild your brace, at home or the track, saving you time and money.

POD Measurement Guide

STEP 1: Knee Width

Measure across the centre of the knee using the POD Sizing Tool. Take measurements in a weight bearing position at full extension (i.e. with leg fully straight).

STEP 2: Knee Circumference Measurement

Measure the circumference of the knee directly underneath the kneecap using a soft tape measure or string. Take measurements in a weight bearing position at full extension (i.e. with leg fully straight).

STEP 3: Try Brace On

Walk and bend your leg to aid the brace in settling. The brace should feel comfortably snug.
