Alpinestars Product Spotlight: B2 Carbon Knee Brace

Alpinestars has released information about their new B2 Carbon Knee Brace which is constructed from an ultra lightweight carbon fiber to provide full protection while also allowing full range of motion for the rider’s knee. The brace design prevents exessive torsional force transfer to the knee which greatly reduces the risk of knee injury in the event of an accident.
