Mobius are one of the market leaders when it comes to knee protection and wrist braces, so the guys at trak Industries sent us a set over to try out.
After searching the market looking for some knee protection, Mobius came up as the most popular option for comfort, fit and durability, also being worn by the world’s best athletes the choice to try these out was a no brainer.
Straight out the box I found the braces super comfortable to put on, and the guide easily explained how to fit and put the correct pads inside the braces to make them fit snug to your knee. The braces feature patent pending technology which incorporates the CCRS (Continuous Cable Routing System) to form an unparalleled system of support and protection, which to me made the brace feel more secure on the back of the leg.
Fully lined with plush EVA foam it creates an impact absorbing surrounding. When i’ve tried other braces, I’ve found they have either slid down whilst I’ve been riding or I end up with my legs being super sore towards the end of the day, but with the mobius brace, my knee’s felt safe and secure and my range of movement wasn’t restricted at all.
Also I found I could fully grip the bike still, as I was unsure if I would be able to feel much through the sides of the brace as I have done previously, But all in all a solid ten out of ten and would highly recommend a set. You can purchase from Trak Industries through clicking HERE.
Want to learn the techy bits of the braces? Below is a full breakdown of the best features.
1. Injection Molded Shells
20% Glass Filled Nylon shells are designed to be flexible in places to allow the shells to conform to the users leg for better fit, comfort and stability, and designed to be rigid where necessary to resist excessive movement and provide impact resistance.
2. Forged Aluminum Parts
The Dial, Dial Fastener, Extension Stop, and Hinges are made of CNC Forged 6061 T-6 aluminum for maximum strength.
3. UHMWPE Cable
The cable is made with an Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Fiber. This material is being used in many advanced applications such as the aerospace industry and the military. It is the latest replacement material for Kevlar. It is known for its high tensile, bending and abrasion strength.
4. Tendon Back Plate
The Tendon Back Plate is uniquely designed to route the cable around the users leg in strategic locations to reinforce the main ligaments of the knee. The Tendon Back Plate is made from a special flexible Kraton material designed to grip the users leg and prevent migration.
5. Foam Padding
The Foam Padding is made from closed cell ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) foam. The EVA foam pads are designed to conform to the users unique leg shape providing maximum comfort and control while gripping the users leg and preventing migration. Closed cell EVA Foam won’t absorb moisture (sweat), so they are odorless and easy to clean..
The velcro straps are designed to be comfortable and fully adjustable. Thermo Plastic Rubber (TPR) Pull Tabs are durable to make the straps easy to use and are numbered to prompt the user to tighten the straps in the correct order to ensure proper fit.
7. Extension Stops
The braces come with optional degrees of extension stops to limit full extension if desired. The extension stop installed on the brace is at 0 degrees, and included are 4, 8 and 12 degree stops.
