Got these when I did my top end. 25hrs later cables broke where I grab the bike with my knees. Super bummed. Excellent brace unless you use your legs and stand to ride. Probably fine for someone who rides sitting down. I want to go faster than sitting will allow. they claim one year warranty and replacement parts available but I cant seem to get the parts that are breaking. $500 down the drain. Def would try another brand.

I like these braces. I have had them a little over a year now. The sizing took a while to get right. Luckily you can play around with the different size foam inserts to get it to fit properly.
***The wire did snap on one brace, contacted Mobius directly and they are sending a replacement. Apparently they switched from stainless to a parachord type material.
A+ customer service. No questions asked and very friendly. Makes the high price worth it when they back up their product
Had the pods and they were okay but the pads would always fall out, the broke and they would also slide down and move around a lot while riding. The mobius braces seemed to be the fix to all those issues, they are very comfortable and dont move around like other braces, it was super easy to get used to them. In my opinion they are best braces out there.
So far these have been some great knee braces.! They stay in place pretty well while riding, they are comfortable and feel great.!
The leg measurement chart is exactly right for the fitment of the brace. This brace is very comfortable and durable. I am very happy with these braces.
I've bought these braces after having the pod K300 wear out after a couple years. These braces are okay. They are very comfy and stay in place "most" of the time. My biggest complaint is that your pants get stuck in between the sliding knee cap design making it so you can not extend your knee all the way with out adjusting your pants every 5 min. And when your mid moto and this happens, you end up riding the rest of the moto without being able to extend your knee all the way. Another thing is they are pretty bulky compared to my old pods. lastly the spinning tightening device has become very rough and some time takes some strength to turn. Other then that the braces are good, the straps stay together and the Velcro is awesome.
I've never owned high-end knee protection until now, because I slid out with my toes up and the bike came down on my right knee, almost causing damage. The Mobius product has exceeded my expectations for comfort and quality, and at least from my perspective, their design would probably do it's job better than the competitors to prevent hyper extension during extremely brutal impacts.
I did a three hour, hard core Glamis ride and forgot they were even on.
These are more of a knee guard .did not feel comfortable when riding
These braces are amazing. They come with different size pads that velcro right in around the knee and on the back of the calve. The adjustability is so great with these. There are three straps plus the cable pad on the back of the knee. I was able to find a perfect fit for my legs after one ride. just one, two, three four they strap right on and do not budge. i wear knee sleeves plus riding socks. They dont irritate or rub in any wrong place. Ive worn these without knee sleeves and they are just as comfortable.
They have a really comfortable profile all the way down to the shin. NO pressure points. I personally love how they are built around the knee and especially the inside of the knee. They are slim enough to grip that tank with your legs and pin it. The movement feels very natural. I instantly felt more confident on my 450 with these on. Im 6'0 ft 165 pounds. So this 2015 Kx 450 is a wild ride for me. These braces improved my riding and confidence on the bike. I can hang on with my legs with zero interference from these braces. I love the dial system and how well they fit your leg.
I have had one big endo with these braces. I went over the bars bounced and rolled over the ground pretty violently. These braces held up perfect. Not a strain or bruise on my legs or in my muscles around my knee. They seem very durable so far. The construction is top notch.
The mobius brace is an amazing product. One of the best purchases I have ever made. This is the best knee protection out there for a VERY reasonable price. Do NOT waste your money on anything else. 5 stars.
Again, just my thoughts.
I wear long boot socks that are thin at the top, FOX brand. I also use a very lightweight neoprene over both of my knees that you can get at any Sporting goods store. I have done that with all my knee braces and occasionally have to adjust padding with each brand. Moto is mental.
At 6 inches about the center of the knee my thigh came in at 19 inches.
I purchased the Medium X8. Once I unpackeged the braces I knew I was going to void my Ultra Cell with the BOA and my PODMX knees braces. I have both. I would rotate one or the other, but never liked either one. The Ultra was just to bulky for me and I felt got in my way when really pressing in with the knees but the BOA really locked down on my leg.
With the X8's I rode two 30 minute motos at E-Street, about 80 degrees in NorCal. First the quality is impressive and the feel is very natural. I like the almost soccer like shin guard feel and very low low profile fit. Immediately when I rode I realized I finally found my knee braces. I had no pressure point soreness or rubbing.
They wrap around your knees and feel and look like they provide full protection. Look like, because I have not tested that part yet.. I have read a few threads that said they are hot. Again I wear socks and neoprene over the knees, sweat was not in my consideration. The knee cap,a full all around protection was very comforting. They felt more natural when moving around the saddle and kicking the leg out. I did not get any hang up on my YZ450F. E-Street is sandy, so when I was dangling the old leg out the X8 held and provided solid stablity and I felt more comfortable and confident with my movements.
You get three variations of the knee cup for fitting, you can easily custom fit these knee braces and obtain a comfortable fit with the options they provide out of the box. The Velcro held up well, no shifting for me. They are easy to adjust, just one, two, three, four.
Hope this helps, because I looked and did not find much on these knee braces.
