Mate blowing out my knees was the reason I stopped racing minis bout 6-7 years ago. Knee braces will definitely help protect your knees. I use Asterix Cell. I've heard the new ones don't stay put the way my old ones do. They fall down when you walk or some ****. Check out pods. They are pretty good. Just go try some on and see what suits. Although my cells are sooo adjustable and have been set for my knee shape exactly. I can even set them to open only to the point my legs will. (Stops hyperextention) and remember. Don't be a cheap ****, you get what you pay for. And a busted knee will cost you a lot more.Hope Micko n Karlos are on the mend!!
Question for you guys ... Can u recommend good knee braces or pads , think I'm better off with braces as my right knee is totally screwed n has been since my early teens , left knee is getting smashed now too and I'm looking for something comfy to ride in but most important to give me stability n hopefully stop me from doing any major damage , will a knee brace fully protect the knee ? And /or will it cause me to brake something else instead? Like how a neck brace will save the neck but transfer impact to collarbone / shoulder ?? Any advise would be appreciated
