Knees are one of the most vulnerable parts of the human body exposed to potential injury when riding a motorcycle. With the rider continually moving on the motorcycle in varying (and sometimes unexpected) conditions, knees are susceptible to impacts, twists, and hyperextension.
EVS designed, developed, and produced the industry’s first off-the-shelf motocross-centric knee brace back in 1985. Since then, we have continued to innovate and improve knee brace technology. Choosing the right knee brace may seem a bit overwhelming, but you can rest assured EVS is an industry leader in the knee brace category with a range that accommodates each rider and riding situation.
For racers — or those with pre-existing knee issues — the Axis Pro not only provides optimal protection and performance but, apart from the frame, is entirely rebuildable, allowing users to install new parts as needed to keep braces feeling like new.
Axis Pro Knee Brace – Rebuildable Protection
The Axis Pro Knee Brace combines superior protection and comfort with premium materials. The result is pro-level knee protection that fuses a carbon fiber upper cuff with an aluminum lower frame for an incredibly rigid yet comfortable, lightweight, and fluid, low-profile knee brace. The Axis Pro Knee Brace is the choice of professional and amateur racers alike.
The Axis Pro Knee Brace is completely rebuildable—apart from the frame—with replacement parts such as the inner and outer patella cups, straps, hinge covers, liner sets, and more.
Aluminum Carbon Fusion Frame– the Axis Pro uses an aluminum lower frame fused to a carbon fiber upper cuff that results in a lightweight and incredibly strong knee brace.
Tru-Motion 2.0 Hinge – mimics knee movement giving the rider a more natural stance.
Hyperextension Lockout 30 – is a hinge component designed to prevent hyperextension, the most common knee injury in action sports. To accommodate a variety of knees and riding styles, you’re able to adjust the hyperextension lockout on the Axis Pro from 0-30 degrees.
Dual Defense Knee Cups – two interactive knee cups slide with your knees’ flexion and extension to provide full coverage knee protection.
Shark Skin Liner – antimicrobial liner provides soft cushioned support and a textured surface to limit knee brace migration while riding.
Stretch Fit Strap – an elastic material that expands and compresses, providing a comfortable and secure fit.
