These braces have saved me in a few nasty crashes that I'm certain would have ended up with a blown out knee had I not been wearing them. The straps are definitely a weak point in the brace as I have broke 4 in the last dozen rides. I believe these braces would be a comfortable fit if I had purchased the right size. I'm wearing a medium and wish I had bought a large. Anyhow, I highly recommend these braces.

Premium protection is important when it comes to knee braces but EVS also realizes the importance of comfort and designed the Web knee braces to be so comfortable, you will forget you have them on.
- Effectively transfers excessive energy through out the brace that would normally be directed toward the knees.
- The frame is constructed out of 100% carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is not only one of the lightest and most durable materials it also increases the effective energy dissipation.
- The hinging provides the option of changing the hyperextension stopping points. EVS built in the stopping positions at 150, 160, and 170.
- Protection extends from the mid-section of the shin to the mid-section of the thigh.
- EVS lined the knee brace with a removable and washable material to provide comfort and keeps the brace in position.
- Note: Sold individually.
Ive had my webs since 2006. Ive replaced the inner liners once, and some of the velcro just recently started peeling off of the straps. I contacted EVS and they are sending me all new straps for free. You definitely get what you pay for with these. These are great braces!
My son has used these for a year after bad knee injury. Has crashed hard several times with no injuries. only problem is the plastic fasteners that hold braces together. they fail after every crash found some at local hdwe store that solved problem braces are not bulky or bothersome to rider-he forgets he has them on.
I've had my EVS WEB KNEE BRACE about 2 years. Although they are great on protection, I have 2 problems with them. 1) strap breakage: I break the plastic retainers on the straps quite easily. I've broken 4 strap retainers. Surprisingly , it is not during crashes but usually I break them just doing fast stops. 2) comfort: I've never tried an Askteric but people have told me they are more comfortable. Mine sure aren't comfortable.
I ride an 09 KX450 , when i put on the brace i felt that it is very big unlike the Astrisk . Quality is alot better than the Astrisk BUT the strapes DO start to hurt after a while
I recommended to my son that he should get a pair of high quality knee braces. He had an acl repair a while back and had an orthopedic brace for that,,but I was concerned for the other knee. He looked over all the braces available,,including the orthopedic level ones. He picked the WEB. He is very pleased with how they feel and perform. He NEVER rides without them. I am very plesed with that. It was money well spent!
I have had these for over 2 yrs. They fit great and have saved my knees a few times already... One of the original black plastic loops the velcro strap go through did brake. I got them fixed by EVS. They referbished them with tougher plastic! I love these things!
I owned custom built CTi braces (stolen after 2 years), Asterisk cell braces and now these EVS Web braces and the Webs are the best. Cost about half as much as the custom CTi's and every bit as comfortable and protective. Don't even feel them when I'm racing. The asterisks were good but not as well made. Won't think of rolling out for one lap without the Webs on. The best I've ever worn and worth every cent I paid for them.
After a horrible knew injury from a jetskiing accident (ticks by myself) about 15 years ago, I have struggled to find a knee brace that would do what it was intended to do. The Web does just that. I purchased one about a year ago and will NEVER purchase another brand. I havent had any issues with hyper extension or twisting wearing this brace. Has made me feel much more confident riding as I need not worry about my knee.
I've had these for about six months. It took me a while to part with $300.00 for each brace, but now that I've done it, I'm glad I did! I dont ride in parks, primarily cross country, so theses things are on for hours at a time, and their great. Not to big and bulky. I think their less bulky than the Asterisk Cells. Fully adjustable and vent great!
Definitely a must have for any type of rider!!
