Transworld MX June 2018 Print Issue Product Report – X-Frame Knee Brace
“The Leatt X-Frame Knee Brace is lightweight, comfortable, easy to adjust… and certainly worth consideration when it comes time to protect your knees. Bravo, Leatt.”
Transworld Motocross’ ‘Product Report’ in their June 2018 print issue included our new Leatt X-Frame Knee Guards.
“The X-Frame Knee Brace is Leatt’s latest entry into the knee brace market, and it has a much more traditional design than its original single-sided C-Frame Knee Brace. Constructed of injected carbon composite, the cage-type knee brace features asymmetrical hinges, adjustable hyper-extension limits, interchangeable padding, and it’s CE certified for impact protection. Best of all, it’s certified as a medical device in the United States and Europe, so most medical insurance policies will help offset their cost,” they said.
“Unlike the C-Frame, which some of our testers could not adapt to due to its one-sided design, the new X-Frame feels familiar and comfortable from the moment you strap it on. The asymmetrical hinge design has a 40 percent thinner hinge on the insides of the brace, which allows you to ride with your leg closer to the contact surface of your motorcycle. While this was the original idea of the design of the C-Frame, having nothing at all between our knees and the bike was quite odd. The X-Frame is noticeably slim and we like it. It is easy to adjust the X-Frame to fit perfectly, and the strapping system prevents brace migration well. The braces are lightweight and easy to get used to. The full-coverage patella cup is complemented nicely by impact guards above and below it, they added.
“The Leatt X-Frame Knee Brace is lightweight, comfortable, easy to adjust, and much easier to get used to than the brand’s first entry into the knee brace market. The X-Frame is certainly worth consideration when it comes time to protect your knees. Bravo Leatt,” they concluded.
