The X8 Knee Brace is the most protective, comfortable brace on the market, utilizing innovative patent pending technology which incorporates the CCRS (Continuous Cable Routing System) to form an unparalleled system of support and protection. The forged CNC machined dial makes fit adjustments on the fly and through pants easy. Fully lined with plush EVA foam, a comfortable, impact-absorbing surrounding is created. Includes one pair of braces and two extra sets of patellar shell pads for a precise fit.
CCRS (Continuous Cable Routing System) externally reinforces all of the cruciate ligaments. The continuous cable loop is twisted 180 degrees, or a half turn, to form two interconnecting loops. The CCRS cable is routed around the knee joint. When forces are applied to the knee joint, the CCRS becomes tight and resists the excessive movement that can cause injury to the ligaments. As the Continuous Cable Routing System tightens, it squeezes the brace shells gripping the tibia and femur. The tibial shell is designed to grip the tibial tuberosity controlling the lower leg, while simultaneously the femoral shell and tendon back plate grip the femur. Mobius has routed the CCRS cable in such a way that when the leg is fully extended the continuous cable progressively tightens resisting hyper extension, bending, and rotation. When the leg is in flexion, the CCRS cable is designed to progressively tighten as well, preventing rotation and bending.
Measure from the center point of the kneecap to 6 inches up the thigh. Measure the circumference of your thigh at that point. With this measurement, follow the size chart below.
If you fall between two sizes, choose the smaller size.
If the #2 Tendon Back Plate contacts the shells and will not tighten any further, the brace is too large for you. Using an X8 that is too large for you will not function as designed and will not protect you properly. It may also cause premature wear of the device and may void the warranty.
