Having your children ride motorcycles is great! They start out young enjoying the powered two wheelers, and often continue riding in motorcycle sports like circuits racing and/or off road racing.
But because children are more fragile than adults, you need to be sure they are very well protected. Knees are one of the first body parts that suffer when you crash, so obviously you need to ensure that your kid's knees are well protected. And you can buy lots of good, quality, gear for your kid's knees. But a year later you end up buying another one since children grow. So they outgrow your knee protector.
USA based POD have come up with a solution; the K1 . The K1 is a brace system that really protects the knee, but it also evolves over time. Every time your kid grows, you add a piece.
The K1 is comfortable, lightweight (480 grams) and very sturdy, so it will prevent the knee from being damaged incase of a crash. The age gaps is between 10 and 15 years, but obviously size is the most determining factor.
The price is not cheap, but then your kid's knees should be either. Count about US$400 / UK£250 / €400 for a pair. Click here for Amazon USA.
