WHY SHOULD YOU WEAR A KNEE BRACE WHILE CYCLING OR BIKING?
Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your chances of a cycling injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression.
A study conducted with 116 professional cyclists reported that 94 per cent experienced overuse injury over the period of a year, and 23 per cent of those riders reported knee pain. Wearing a knee brace while cycling or biking can aid in preventing and avoiding cycling injuries.
Cycling poses high pressure on knees due to the repeated movement of the knees when peddling. Bauerfeind knee braces help to promote healing with the use of medical grade compression.
Medical-grade compression depleted the lactic acid build up from repeated motion and stimulates muscle regeneration.
MENS MAGAZINE GQ LOVES BAUERFEIND PRODUCTS
Jess Campbell from GQ reviewed Bauerfeind compression gear and sports supports, "Whether you’re running, cycling, walking, or simply going through a gym circuit, the effects of Bauerfeind are instant and more noticeable than any compression gear I’ve worn in the past.
Prone to little niggles around the knee and nursing an ongoing calf-strain, I found my muscles to feel stabilised throughout the duration of activity. During my workout, my legs felt supported and better able to adapt to changes of pace and direction".
