Knee brace for skiing
Ski safely with the CLS knee brace
Every winter sports enthusiast knows that an accident is just around the corner. A collision while descending or having your skis stay in place while you fall over are two common causes of injuries. The knee is especially vulnerable in these cases. A knee injury requires a long recovery process. You can prevent this by skiing with a knee brace from now on.
The risks of skiing without a knee brace
When you are skiing, there is constant pressure on both knees. Due to these forces, you can easily twist your knee. As a skier, you must always prevent this by maintaining the proper position. If you don’t or if you ski without knee protection, you risk damaging your knee ligaments because your knee can turn too far or the leg can be bent inwards or outwards. In the worst case, for example in the event of a fall, the knee ligaments tear. Such an injury requires a long recovery process and can cause permanent instability.
This is what a knee brace does while you are skiing
The CLS knee brace strengthens your knee joint and leg. This is because the brace is made of a material that is a combination of nylon and carbon. This material is strong and at the same time light. It ensures that the shocks encountered during skiing are distributed over a larger part of your leg.
This is because the brace frame and leg together form a stronger whole. Unexpected bumps in a slope, crashes or collisions have less impact on your knee joint and therefore the chance of a serious knee injury is reduced.
At B&C custom bracing, we view each knee as something unique. We talk about the wishes and needs of the athlete. We measure, scan and design with high-end equipment. This is how we develop unique knee braces with the perfect fit for you. With us, ‘custom made’ really means custom made.Read about how that works
Brace protects against impact
The brace frame and optional knee pad also form a protective layer when skiing off-piste and protect you against collisions and external objects. At the same time, the brace is lightweight and comfortable to wear under your ski pants. There is still total freedom of movement because the brace is custom-made and therefore follows the natural movement of the knee. Your unique brace is developed on the basis of an extensive and accurate measuring process.
The CLS knee brace has been intensively tested on very high-level skiers. The brace supports, stabilises and promotes the correct movements of the leg. The CLS relieves and reduces pain in the athlete’s knee.See the CLS knee brace
