Any k8 user want to tell how long the little hinge joint lasts on these braces.
I have some ligament damage that I don’t think I’m going to have repaired and I’d like a robust brace for exercise and higher impact activity.
How’s the fitment and articulation?

Hi, I have a lot of experience with these braces. The hinges and ligaments are improved for the 2.0. Ligaments last approx 5 times longer now so I’d expect get a season out of them depending on how often you ride. One thing to consider is the hinge ligament takes away force from the knee, so ligaments can break if it’s a big crash so I’d have some spare in your kit bag just in case. If you want to use them away from MX the patella comes off easily, and I’d suggest trying them on before you buy them.
