Best Braces for Skiing, Skating and Snowboarding

Whether you ski, skate or snowboard, winter sports can take a toll on your joints. Bracing your body with quality, medical-grade supports will help to stabilize your joints and protect you from painful tears and sprains.

Movements like banking and angulation put a lot of pressure on the knees, so it's no surprise that knee ligament pulls and tears account for about 1/3 of all skiing injuries. Our GenuTrain Knee Support provides medical-grade compression and stability in a brace so comfortable you'll forget you're wearing it.

At the end of a long run you can feel the pull of every muscle in your back. Stabilize your core and avoid excessive strain with Bauerfeind's LumboTrain and LumboTrain Lady back braces.

Skiers know the feeling: all it takes is a fall with your ski pole and you can be stuck with an unpleasant souvenir of the mountains for a long time. For "Skier's Thumb" to recover quickly, the joint requires stability. RhizoLoc Thumb Brace provides adjustable stability in a lightweight, breathable design. Read more about Skier’s Thumb here.
