The Zamst RK-1 Knee Brace is a functional and biomechanical brace that corrects issues causing IT Band Syndrome. The Brace has also been designed to deal with Runner's Knee, although it is advised that you check with your health specialist to see if this item would work for you. Developed by elite athlete specialists Zamst over in the US, the Zamst RK-1 Knee Brace could be the ideal solution to prevent different forms of knee injury and aids in recovery. 

The Zamst RK-1 also prevents repetitive irritation of the IT Band on the side of the knee and relieves pain. Ultra-thin, breathable fabric provides optimal comfort. The spiral strap (side) and the butterfly shape (back), support and guides the knee by restricting internal rotation and assist in the knee flexion. The brace and the semi-rigid stays increase proprioception (positioning) which is ideal for Runner's Knee. The technology and design behind the Zamst RK-1 Knee Brace is very different to your standard knee brace with an emphasis placed upon injury prevention and a low profile design. 

Who Can Make Gains with the Zamst RK-1?

The RK-1 Knee Brace is a great choice for people recovering from a variety of knee injuries. It is particularly effective in dealing with IT Band Syndrome and Runner's Knee, but if you are unsure whether the brace is suitable for your condition then you should consult a medical professional first.

The Zamst RK-1 has in place a dual density pad which anchors the spiral strap below the knee, keeping the lower leg from rotating internally while maintaining proper alignment. Resin stays keep the leg in a neutral position while a butterfly shape pattern on the backside of the brace assists in knee flexion and extension. Added to this the brace is both ultra-lightweight and well-ventilated, so you'll always be cool and comfortable.

Features and Benefits of the RK-1 Knee Brace

  • Anatomically correct for left or right side ensures maximum comfort
  • Flyweight Tech ensures an lightweight brace made of advanced materials
  • Pre-curved design provides a full range of motion, allowing you to perform unhindered
  • Ventilated flow through design ensures you're always cool and comfortable

Sizing Guide for the RK-1

The RK-1 is available in sizes extra small to large. Alongside the different sizing brackets, you will need to identify which leg the brace is to be used on as the anatomical design of the right and left brace are different. Listed below is the sizing guide, which is determined by the circumference below the knee:

Size Inches
Extra Small 11.5" - 12.5"
Small 12.5" - 13.75"
Medium 13.75" - 15.25"
Large 15.25" - 17"

Measure the circumference of the leg 2 inches below the centre of the kneecap. If your measurement falls between two sizes, choose the larger one.
