I have to wear Knee Braces now so which ones ?

Recommended Posts

 Yeah yeah, due to this latest knee injury and not being able to afford to take off work for 4+ months I was told to get braces. Yes I can get the Doc note and go through insurance for CTI's but (yes the dreaded BUT) I still have to pay 40 to 50% of said braces. So, as you can see my dilemma here. Pay 1500 + (yes that is abut half price) or pay 699 or 599 ;)

 

So which do I get?? I will also have to wear while shopping the Malls hehe.

 

Asterisk Ultra Cell for 699

Or the new Leatt C Frame for 599

 So need these before my next race as I plan to try and ride this Wednesday just to see if 8 weeks was enough time off hehe

 My Doc only recommended the two I posted vs the CTI's ;) But thanks :D 

 

CTI's

​ But Im biased / ignorant as thats what I bought and I like them, and have not used other like style / quality braces.

 

 

 I had some and loved them but due to a major BLONDE moment I lost them and well don't have the 1500+ for them :/ Hence why I was asking about those two. If I had the $$$ It would be CTI's ;)

 

 

 Thanks for the input guys :D

After using my insurance to purchase a knee brace (DonJoy) the price I have to pay still was more then just buying the same one on eBay. The price was 4 times inflated going through the Doctor Office.

You wouldn't put a namura piston in your bike...why put less than top of the line knee braces on your knees.

 

Never wore em but I have heard good things about CTIs.  I try to just stay healthy, but that doesn't always work.
