I bought these to replace my old Asterisk braces that were probably over 10 years old. These new braces fit better, are more comfortable, stay up better and are easier to use. Great all around brace.
I had my last cell knee braces for over 10 years and they never let me down. These look to be better constructed and are much more comfortable than the old cells. After 2 rides the awesome orange paint job is wearing off on the sides. They should make a sleeve that slips over the knee brace to protect them from the pants rubbing them. I imagine the pants will start to do damage to the brace integrity eventually.
Very happy with my Asterisk knee braces. Had a pair years ago and even though I was happy with them the new version with boa knobs is awesome. Only minor complaint is that my pants tend to get hung up on the braces when I'm putting pants on or taking them off.
Bought the pair to replace my 4 year old pair that had a lot of use. The new ratchet tensioners are really really good for getting the braces nice and snug. I was very impressed after using them several times.
I had an older pair and the knee cap had better protection in those but the brace portion is better fitting in the new version to reduce potential twisting. Might be a problem for a person with a disperportionate quad/hamstring to calf/lower leg. I have chicken legs. A little bulky for tight pants.
Have had several rides in these after purchasing a few months ago. They were very easy to do initial fitting on and wear much better than previous models. I will definitely buy again when I wear out the set I have.
Worth the investment after putting them on for the first time they felt very bulky even walking around but after riding a few times you forget you're wearing them great support and great peace of mind for protecting your knees
Not as comfortable as the old style ones I used for eight years!
But after a crash without them I've learned to appreciate max
These knee braces are one of the best out there. Very comfortable knee brace. These braces are a little hard to get use to when riding, as far as gripping the bike with your knees, but the is common with most knee braces
I decided to try the Asterisk and i very pleased with their fit, comfort and performance.. much better than my old EVS.
The fitment its great! The most important thing is that you feel a natural movement of the knee, without uncomfortable pressure points.
Is light weight but solid, very satisfied with the purchase.
Maybe the price is too high and I hope the later cables long enough
I hope you serve my review for those riders looking for the best.
