Cannot thank Brett Nicholas @ POD ACTIVE enough for going above and beyond with his efforts. Ordered a pair of replacement POD straps and clips for my knee braces from a local supplier and waited a few weeks for them with no success. Contacted Brett and he dispatched them on the spot and got them before a ride weekend. The PODS are awesome and the support was even better! 💯 would stick with the PODS and recommend the support. Totally appreciate it!

Stating up front I think the braces are excellent, but the knee impact-protection is in dire need of improvement, and this could otherwise be a 5 star review. So for the good, the braces themselves are excellent, they offer tremendous support with a wonderful fit to them. For the bad, the knee covers just do not cut it for moto enduro riding. Even the mildest of contact with a rock will be felt in your kneecap, and I've now bruised both knee caps several times coming off the bike. This would not have happened with any of the MTB knee pads I own given I have had the same experience there without any bruising at all. Pod needs to go back and re-design their knee-guard insert. The knee-guard has a tendency to pop off the metal retaining pin often, which leads to the knee-guard floating around under my moto pants more than it should. Next, and this is far and away my larger concern, the impact cushioning and absorption is wholly inadequate. Pod states the knee-guard is CE rated but the exact rating isn't listed on the product page. What they should seriously consider is switching to a superior, if not thicker, viscoelastic material other knee pad manufacturers use (e.g. Poc, TroyLee) and certifying to at least EN1621-1 Level 2 as do the forgoing companies mentioned. I'm also a bit disappointed the Pod owner replies to all the 5 star reviews thanking them for their feedback, but doesn't reply to lower reviews offering specific feedback - I would have thought they would at least acknowledge their user's opinions in consideration of future product enhancements. If Pod re-designs the knee-guards , I will happily purchase them and update this review, otherwise I am seriously and sadly considering giving up the K8 to get better knee protection.

This should be a 5-star review for the K8 2.0 but held back by 2-star impact protection. Overall I love the fit and support the brace provides and feel it is a real benefit for the enduro moto riding I do. The downside is the impact protection for the knee is minimal even though it is CE rated. I have had a couple of slow speed falls and felt much more impact to my knee and resulting soreness afterwards than I would have with any other knee pads I’ve used. When you examine the pads you can see just how thin they are and therefore minimal amount of impact absorption. I recognize these braces are intended for multi sport, but would seriously advise Pod to offer an optional knee cup for moto with impact gel that would put it on par with its competitors and, most importantly, better protect its users.

Best knee braces on the market. Light, slim, comfortable, and affordable. And the best part you can rebuild them yourself. All parts are available and can order. Rebuild them to new in no time. I get years out of my knee braces. Worth the investment.

I knew I bought the right knee brace for me when I forgot I was even wearing them! Put them at the track around noon, rode on and on for 6 hours after which we were all tired. We didn't even feel like changing clothes for the 1.5 hour ride home. Loaded bikes up, took off boots and helmets and jumped in the truck. 30 minutes later I realized I was still wearing my pod k8 2.0. Continued on the car wash to clean the bikes and then get home. Unloaded and finally went inside. 8 straight hours! I was wearing knee brace socks but no sore spots, rubs or indentations in my skin. My right knee is a few mm wider than my left but customized fit with included pads fixed that. Oh yeah, then there's the protection these offer second to none. Love these and will wear them on every ride, every race! Great product. Great support and protection. Great fit! Well done guys!

I am using POD Knee braces for the last 5 years in enduro and trails riding activities and I am more then content with the performance and protection of these braces. What the experience made even more out of this world is the service/support level from POD Active Pty Ltd As with all good products you need to maintain them to keep them good and living in Cambodia, the challenge is to get the proper parts and advice. The level that POD Active Pty Ltd did respond to me to meet this challenge is better then the school book example and did impress me. The mind set shown is: How can we get there. Robert-Jan

I am a Physical Therapist Assistant who had a Right Total Knee Replacement (TKR) in August 2020 at 49 years old due to being bone on bone for years and missing out on a lot of things with my kids. Being a Therapist I researched all of the knee braces available that provide additional support after a TKR for more "aggressive" hobbies after my knee replacement. I sent an email through the PodActive website with questions for my particular upcoming situation and was sent a reply quickly from Brett Nicholas, the CEO of PodActive. Brett was great about answering all my questions about their Multisport brace for my particular circumstance. I have helped rehab a LOT of knee replacements as a Therapist and I didn't want just an ACL/MCL brace as some of the other braces offer for ligament injuries. After my surgery I ordered the K8 2.0 brace through an outlet here in the USA (Fly Racing / WPS) which my insurance (TriCare) paid for thanks to the brace being certified as a Medical Device with the FDA. Five months after my total knee replacement I am back riding my dirt bike and snowboarding with my kids which is one of the reasons I had my knee replaced at 49 years old. The brace offers great support and gives me the confidence to do the things I was missing out on. Brett in Australia and Bruce Parry at Fly Racing here in the US have been great answering any questions or concerns I had! As a Patient and a Therapist I can't say enough about the POD Active Brace and support!
