Brace[/mageProductLink] is finally available to the public. The
newest piece of dirt bike and race equipment works off its custom
continuous cable routing system (CCRS), which Mobius has patented.
Additionally, the equipment's tendon back plate gives full support to the knee, protecting the four main ligaments in the knee from a severe leg twist or harsh impact. Its futuristic look, fit and movement are all designed to prevent lateral bending, lateral rotation and hyperextension, which are three main types of knee injuries common in motocross.
Named after the
the famous one-sided loop, the mobius strip, this knee brace
utilizes a similar structure. The X8 uses a hard nylon shell along
with its CCRS in a figure-eight construction to loop around the
rider's knee joint. This allows the knee brace to tighten when
impact is applied. The brace shell constricts upon impact to keep
the knee in place and avoid injuries.
Essentially, each time a motocross racer experiences a severe impact to the knee area, the X8 will tighten through its CCRS and grip the rider's tibia and femur bones in the shin and thigh to control and safeguard the knee and lower leg. This incredible technology along with its lightweight Nylon shell will fit directly to the rider's leg.
uses CNC forged 6061-T6 anodized aluminum hinge plates and Velcro
straps with pull tabs so that the brace fits comfortably while
riding. This allows riders to quickly don and remove the knee brace
in an instant. The Mobius X8 Knee Brace comes in three sizes:
small, medium and large. There are also two color options: White
and Acid Yellow and Storm Gray and Crimson.
As the popularity of the X8 grows it's unlikely the majority of motocross riders will go without this knee brace.
