I'm pleased with mine so far, I've used them in a couple of races and practices, while they make it super difficult to squeeze the bike with my knees, and do put the wear and tear on your pants; their still worth it. I had a minor crash and could tell they definitely helped. I don't like they fit with mx boots, but I've talked to others with these braces and it seems to be my personal distaste. Didn't expect the brace to go inside the top of the boot, but that seems to be a good design, it just makes it harder to get a proper fit on your boot and getting the brace positioned just right.

I was thinking about going back to straps from the wire ratchet version I have now to reduce bulk but the straps are a bit narrow and the loop is not easy to thread so I will return these and stay with the more bulky but easier to get in and out of version......
These fit great and I don't even know that I am wearing them until I need them. I spent some time getting the fitment right with the straps by walking around the shop with them on and adjusting as needed. One reason I purchased these is that the extra width makes it so much easier to grip the bike with your knees. The engineering and design of the product impressed me and puts it above its competitors. I consider the investment in high quality safety equipment well worth it.
Very slim knee brace, with my riding pants on I still have slack in the knee area, and I don't wear a next size up pant to compensate for the braces. Not restrictive at all, they track your leg geometry so well that when your sitting on your seat the upper leg part of the brace still sits flush with your leg, not sticking out your pants in your lap like a lot of other braces. They don't slip at all and are surprisingly grippy with the "shark skin" liner they use, its like a rubber and sticks to your skin or sleeve pretty well. I bought these because the Asterisks seems to have the best design theory as far as safety with the adjustable oversized cuffs and boot tether. The whole shape of the design looks like it was designed with purpose rather than something asymmetrical and simple like everything else priced over $400. Cant say anything bad about them that they would truly need improving, they just do the job and allow full movement for riding. And if youre worried about coverage protection in the patella area, don't forget you can upgrade to the ultra cell patella piece too.
