For those participating in action sports, shoulder injuries can be a common occurrence. Whether it’s the two-wheel variety or some other type of action sport, the potential for a crash or impact that can result in a shoulder injury is ever-present. Recovery from a shoulder injury can be a long and arduous process that is also susceptible to re-injury if not allowed to heal properly.
That’s why at EVS Sports, we created a line of shoulder braces and supports for action sports athletes that are one of the best options on the market for dealing with shoulder injuries. Many of our customers tell us they wear their EVS shoulder braces when mountain biking, when playing stick-and-ball sports, and we’ve even heard of instances where trade workers wear them daily on the job site.
With four unique models to choose from, the EVS line of shoulder braces and supports includes options for each user’s specific needs and budget. This article provides a brief, high-level overview of the various models that make up the EVS line of shoulder braces specifically designed to help improve shoulder injury recovery, management, and prevention.
The SB05 with breathable Air Mesh construction provides superior compression, airflow, and support for shoulder injuries. EVS’s X-Strap Stabilizer System fits over the brace to keep it firmly in place and provide double shoulder support. The universal no-snag design with TPR gripper pull-tabs makes for easy on and easy off shoulder support with adjustable arm closures that help eliminate underarm chaffing.

Now that you’ve perused our line of shoulder braces and supports, when you’re ready to make a purchase, be sure to follow our handy “How To Measure” guide and corresponding size chart to determine the size you need.
Using a cloth measuring tape, measure around the chest, just below the armpits. For women, measure around the bust band or upper chest circumference.
Using a cloth measuring tape, measure the circumference around the widest part of your bicep when the arm is relaxed.
NOTE: If your measurements are close to the size you want to choose, we advise picking one size larger.
Whether you choose a shoulder brace, knee brace, or one of our helmets, EVS Sports is at the forefront of protection and injury prevention with a wide range of product offerings for every action sports activity.
