What knee brace are you guys wearing and why?

custom CTIs,. two hyper-extensions, preventive maintenance. Highly recommend them if you can afford them. Run about 1100 each unless you can get insurance to spring for them. And that 1100 was 3 years ago. Good luck with you knee issues.

Why are you looking to wear braces?

After ACL reconstruction I was prescribed a brace by my physician. For most insurance companies to cover the cost up to what your policy covers will require a prescription from your physician.

CTI's are really the only choice as far as I'm concerned. They are extremely comfortable, they don't slide down your leg when you're riding, and their customer service is second to none. Getting a prescription will be the best way to get them, unless you want to shell out the coin for them. I highly recommend the Vapor Custom. They're just plain awesome!

CTI Custom as well here. Had it 2 years. Torn Meniscus twice. Surgery once. Got the brace, ride with it every time, knee feels like its to 100 percent again. Cost 2500, insurance paid all but 250. Doctor wrote prescription and place I went to was super cool and let me use an off the shelf till mine came in.

Cti knee brace owner here and I swear by them. I use the vapor for wake and the pro sport custom for hockey and rock climbing. Get the ams straps for water use and you should be rock solid. To get them i believe you generally need a prescription by your doctor. Insurance will cover some or all f the cost depending on your coverage. My insurance covered the bulk of mine under their durable equipment coverage.

I am using the pod mx braces. If you can't get custom cti braces the pod braces are top shelf. When I met harf before he got hooked up with cti he was wearing them and loving them so I tried them and have been stoked on them.

I use the Asterisk Cyto Cell, really good brace at a reasonable price. sizes are a little odd so I recommend trying them on before buying.
