Poor skiing technique and incorrect landing from a jump are often causes of knee injuries. ACL tears are also common when skiers are trying to stand up and prevent a fall. Due to this high risk of injury, wearing a knee brace to prevent, as well as protect (any current issues), is one of the best things you can do to protect the knee while skiing.
The Bauerfeind knee braces have been specially designed with 3D medical grade compression which promotes blood flow and secures the knee ligaments.
This level of compression is not found in simple neoprene sleeves or cheaper braces.The added support from a brace will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to enjoy your next black run or slalom ski race.
What are the best knee braces for skiing?
If you feel niggles in your knee or have been diagnosed and a knee brace has been recommended as part of your treatment. Choosing the right knee brace is key to a speedier rehabilitation journey and reduction in pain.
The best kind of knee support is one that stabilises the joint while gripping your kneecap, to prevent strained rotation of the knee. As well as being breathable and comfortable while you're skiing.
The GenuTrain S is a good knee support to prevent skiing related injuries. The joint splints guide the knee, providing lateral movement support while keeping the area stable. This improves sensorimotor function for maximum movement control.
