Years of test runs with professional riders Josh Grant and Ryan Villopoto have resulted in bringing the revolutionary Mobius X8 Knee Braces available at Adventure Designs to market. The Mobius X8 was in development for seven years, with testing and prototypes leading to a brace that has been engineered to protect against lateral bending, hyperextended knees and lateral rotation. Any of these injuries could be game-changers, or game-enders, for serious riders. The X8 brace has a hard nylon shell along with a Continuous Cable Routing System (CCRS) to loop around the knee joint and tighten when forces are pressed against the knee. Constructed of an injection molded shell with 20% PIM glass-filled nylon shell, the Mobius X8 is designed to be flexible and rigid and to provide maximum comfort while creating 360 degrees of protection that won't rotate or slip. The overlapping patella area with zero-degree CNC forged 6061-T6 anodized aluminum stop does not leave any gap exposed, no matter how far the knee might be bent.
