CTi sports

Since 1983, CTi knee braces have been tested and trusted by professional action sports athletes around the world.

MX and FMX

MX and FMX riders have unique demands and anatomy. CTi features specific design advantages and/or adjustments that can be made to optimize performance for riding dirt bikes, including:

  • A basic frame design that functions well for riding. The CTi is the only ligament knee brace that captures the tibia, locking down securely on the tibial crest. The rigid upper and lower arms combine with the hinges, condyle pads and straps to properly align the knee joint and provide accurately-tracking exoskeletal support.
  • There are no rigid components in the upper medial aspect. This keeps the rider streamlined to the bike and enables them to use their thighs to better grip the tank without pinching or digging in.
  • CTi can be ordered with a patella cup. This protective cup keeps the patella safe from flying rocks and other debris common to riding environments.
  • CTi has no rigid components across the posterior (back) side of the brace, so you won’t experience pinching or cramping when in deep flexion (squatting) through whoops or tight corners .
  • CTi’s low-profile design allows it to tuck into the top of MX boots. It actually works in conjuction with the boot to help provide better overall protection.
  • CTi can be manufactured to be shorter, longer, thicker or thinner based upon your height and weight.

Wakeboarding

Wakeboarders are constantly pushing the boundaries in their pursuit of ever more impressive tricks, which puts them at increased risk of knee injuries. CTi features specific design advantages and/or adjustments that can be made to optimize performance for wakeboarding, including:

  • A basic frame design that functions well for wakeboarding. The CTi is the only ligament knee brace that captures the tibia, locking down securely on the tibial crest. The rigid upper and lower arms combine with the hinges, condyle pads and straps to properly align the knee joint and provide accurately-tracking exoskeletal support.
  • The upper portion of the CTi brace frame can be flared out to accommodate larger quads (common among wakeboarders) and to reduce rubbing and bruising when landing tricks in deep flexion (squat).
  • CTi can be ordered with an Anti-Migration System (AMS) at no additional charge. This comfortable neoprene padding configuration virtually eliminates brace slippage and works well in water.
  • CTi has no rigid components across the posterior (back) side of the brace, so you won’t experience pinching or cramping when squatting to load the line or land a trick.
  • CTi can be manufactured to be shorter, longer, thicker or thinner based upon your height and weight.
  • Non-corrosive materials make the CTi ideal for water sports.

MTB and BMX

Mountain and BMX riders exert high levels of forces on their knees as well as on their equipment. The construction of the CTi combines lightweight and super strong materials for maximum support. CTi features specific design advantages and/or adjustments that can be made to optimize performance for riding, including:

  • A basic frame design that functions well for riding. The CTi is the only ligament knee brace that captures the tibia, locking down securely on the tibial crest. The rigid upper and lower arms combine with the hinges, condyle pads and straps to properly align the knee joint and provide accurately-tracking exoskeletal support.
  • There are no rigid components in the upper medial aspect. This keeps the rider streamlined to the bike and eliminates pinching or digging in between the seat, brace and leg.
  • CTi can be ordered with a patella cup. This protective cup keeps the patella safe from flying rocks and other debris common to riding environments Or, custom made pads are available for CTi braces through The One. Eight. Seven. For more info on 187 pads visit: www.187killerpads.com
  • Field serviceable buckles can be positioned on the interior or exterior of the frame to reduce brace profile when needed.
  • CTi can be manufactured to be shorter, longer, thicker or thinner based upon your height and weight.

Surfing

Surfers are constantly pushing the boundaries in their pursuit of ever more impressive tricks, which puts them at increased risk of knee injuries. CTi features specific design advantages and/or adjustments that can be made to optimize performance for surfing, including:

  • A basic frame design that functions well for surfing. The CTi is the only ligament knee brace that captures the tibia, locking down securely on the tibial crest. The rigid upper and lower arms combine with the hinges, condyle pads and straps to properly align the knee joint and provide accurately-tracking exoskeletal support.
  • CTi can be ordered with an Anti-Migration System (AMS) at no additional charge. This comfortable neoprene padding configuration virtually eliminates brace slippage, eliminating the annoying hassle of having to constantly adjust your brace in the water.
  • Streamlined frame shape and hinge design (especially on the medial side) contour closely with the leg. This keeps the brace very low-profile and limits the drag in the water when paddling and snapping up on waves.
  • CTi can be used with wetsuits. Simply remove standard padding from brace (attached via hook and loop) and apply the brace over the top of the wetsuit. The wetsuit replaces the padding.
  • Non-corrosive materials make the CTi ideal for surfing. Simply rinse out with fresh water after use in the ocean.
  • CTi can be manufactured to be shorter, longer, thicker or thinner based upon your height and weight.

Snowboarding

Snowboarders are at increased risk of knee injury due to the nature of the tricks that characterize the sport. CTi features specific design advantages and/or adjustments that can be made to optimize performance for snowboarding, including:

  • A basic frame design that functions well for snowboarding. The CTi is the only ligament knee brace that captures the tibia, locking down securely on the tibial crest. The rigid upper and lower arms combine with the hinges, condyle pads and straps to properly align the knee joint and provide accurately-tracking exoskeletal support.
  • The upper portion of the CTi brace frame can be flared out to accommodate larger quads (common among snowboarders) and to reduce rubbing and bruising when landing tricks in deep flexion (squat).
  • CTi can be ordered with an Anti-Migration System (AMS) at no additional charge. This comfortable neoprene padding configuration virtually eliminates brace slippage, eliminating the annoying hassle of having to constantly adjust your brace under your layers and outerwear.
  • CTi has no rigid components across the posterior (back) side of the brace, so you won’t experience pinching or cramping when squatting to land a trick or sitting on a lift.
  • Field serviceable buckles can be positioned on the interior or exterior of the frame to reduce brace profile when needed.
  • CTi can be manufactured to be shorter, longer, thicker or thinner based upon your height and weight.

Skateboarding

Skaters have unique demands and anatomy. CTi features specific design advantages and/or adjustments that can be made to optimize performance for skating, including:
