UPSHIFT November 2020

POD Active K8 2.0 carbon fiber knee braces are protective, resilient and comfortable for riding disciplines where you need legitimate protection for one of the most complex joints in your body. This testing period consisted of 88+ engine hours over the course of 40+ rides, adding up to well over 200 hours in the braces. While many brace options exist, it’s important to know that not all are created equal and the K8 2.0 braces live up to every expectation.
