    Another Knee brace question

    About 2 months ago, I had a crash and after seeing a specialist and doing an MRI, they found i had torn my lateral meniscus.
    I was using the Thor force knee guards at the time.
    Whats the best brace to go for, I do a lot of tech riding etc. Will I be able to claim for my medi aid??????
    Does the money come from the saving account or the MSA???

    Any advise would be awesome

    Decided that it will be easier just to pay for the braces. I have been looking at the leatt C frame and also the x frame, does anyone have any info regarding these braces.

    @DEAN, by doing some internet searching it looks like there are two different c frames, one with a silver bar and one thats plain black. Are these just different year models. and also do you use the leatt knee brace sleeve

    Dean, do you wear jocks under these compression pants or just compression pants?

    Do yourself a favour and get some padded cycling shorts from Mr Price, makes a HUGE difference
    RACING ! ! ! Because Golf, Soccer and Rugby only require one ball

    the single hinge is great braces not bulky and you grip the bike so much better
