Expert Reviews

Incredibly flexible, offers even support, and lives up to the reputation of its maker.
This much pricier knit sleeve is significantly longer than the Futuro and has flexible side stabilizers and a patella encircling gel ring, all of which increase the support it offers.

Washable and created to prevent rolling at the top and bottom, the Bauerfeind GenuTrain sports a 3-D knit design with a viscoelastic insert that offers lightweight support.
The material is very easy to care for, as well as being very breathable and easiy wicking excess moisture.
The corporate site explains that the GenuTrain active support consists of an anatomically contoured knit and an integral, ring-shaped, functional visco-elastic cushion - the Omega pad. It relieves pain by providing the therapeutic pressure of support from the kneecap to the soft tissues of the knee.
It features a three dimensional knit that gives great compression but at the same time allowing for maximum breathability and consistent temperature even when worn for extended periods of time.
The Bauerfeind GenuTrain is breathable and can be used to control inflammation, strain and knee sprains.

What reviewers didn't like

On the more expensive side, but you are paying for the quality of materials.
It needs to be pushed far up the thigh for to be tight. Relatively expensive.
Some bunching behind the knee
This is an extremely expensive knee braces compared to any other product on our list. Not particularly durable.
Unfortunately, when I felt knee pain again recently and wore it to BJJ, I noticed the stainless steel stay on the inside portion of the brace had protruded from the fabric and had to be pushed back into place.
