Created in collaboration with adaptive athletes from around the world, the Easy Ride knee provides optimal performance for high-impact sports, such as surfing, snowboarding, mountain biking, and more.
The Easy Ride’s shock absorber reproduces the natural motion of the knee to ensure smooth energy return, mimicking the sensations experienced in a variety of extreme sports. Constructed from a lightweight aeronautical-grade aluminium alloy, with a custom hardening treatment, the Easy Ride is durable enough to withstand even the most extreme conditions – including saltwater and temperatures below freezing.
Depending on the choice of sport, the Easy Ride knee is fully customisable for optimal function, with a choice of two adjustable modes. The two modes modify the knee’s alignment by changing the piston anchorage point, optimising flexion. Flexion resistance, extension assist and air compression levels can then be finely adjusted by three controls on the front of the knee.
Features and benefits
Aeronautical-grade aluminium alloy
Two flexion modes: board sports or cycling
User-friendly adjustments for fine-tuning
High level of impact absorption
Operates in a full range of temperatures, from -25°C to 40°C
Waterproof in fresh and salt water
When cycling, the knee must ensure a good load transfer to the pedal, as well as enough flexion to allow the pedals to rotate. The Easy Ride’s cycling mode allows a flexion range of 0-130°.
Board Sports Mode
Board sports, including surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding and skiing, all require consistent knee flexion: the Easy Ride allows for this in its board sports mode, adjusting to a flexion range of 12-60°.
