Replaced my Alpine Star knee guards with the Leatt C-Frame braces. I felt the extra protection justified the cost and so far, I think that was a good decision. The braces are well made, a little intimidating with the bulk and complexity but once I had worn them a couple of times, I never give my knees a thought when riding. The C-frame design allows you to grip the bike with your knees and I have more confidence due to the increased protection.
I waited for months for these to come in and they were well worth the wait. I took them straight to Baja and hit the trails. I normally ride moto but these showed up right before the trip so I was curious to see how they'd do for 3 all day rides rather than shorter moto sessions. They did great! It took a little getting used to but by day 2 & 3 I didn't even feel them on my legs but still had the re-assurance that they were there when I came across situations where I needed to dab. Great work Leatt and thanks to the folks at MotoSport for making sure I got them in time!!!
These are really nice knee braces. They fit good and the double hinge system looks identical to the one on my brace I got from an orthopedic surgeon. I do not even know I am wearing them when I am racing.
