It all started back in 2015 when we customised an old pair of knee braces in our garage. We posted a few photos of our funky design on social media and were surprised by the reaction and requests we received.
We have now teamed up with Townsend Thuasne - manufacturers of the Rebel® ligament sports knee brace. These high performance medically proven knee braces are designed for users who have experienced ligament injuries and/or reconstructive knee surgery.
Featuring exclusive patented technology and built to CE certified standards using a unique fabrication method. This enables us to offer you a perfectly fitting knee brace that's individually made from three specific leg measurements (which you can easily take yourself).
So whether you're returning from an ACL injury or for prevention, you can trust BracePimp® to build you the ultimate custom made knee brace.

"I completely tore my ACL and ruptured my MCL in 2017 which left me off my skates for a long time. I opted not to have surgery, just physio. When getting back to skating I’d worry I would injure myself again, but after wearing my Rebel Knee brace I’ve found the confidence to perform at my best and push my limits again."

"I injured my MCL during an international match in Sweden. I was given an extensive rehab programme from my strength & conditioning coach. However, if it wasn't for my Rebel custom-made knee brace I wouldn't have been able to accomplish my goals as fast as I did. The brace gives me the mental and physical security to return to top form."

"I think a pair of Rebel custom-made Knee Braces is the way to prevent injury, no matter if you do have knee problems or just want to prevent further damage. With the ultimate knee protection they provide, I can improve my performance and feel safe whatever the riding conditions."

"I tore My ACL and MCL as well as damaging my meniscus in spring 2014. After having reconstructive surgery later that year my knee still felt vulnerable so I decided to try a knee brace. It took a couple of sessions to get used to at first but once I was used to it I totally forgot it was there. 3 years on and my knee is strong again but I still ride with the brace to prevent future injury to my knee but also as it just feels so natural to me now."

"I've suffered with various knee injuries over the years and although I've tried to rest and recover, I still re-injured them and each time it's taken longer to heal. Due to the extremity of the sport I decided to invest in a pair of knee braces as I'd rather protect my knees against further injury, and avoid the need for surgery. I now wear my braces during every session and my confidence and ability to perform has improved greatly."

"After taking a nasty fall back in April 2016, I ended up with Arthrofibrosis in my knee. Due to complications during surgery I was out of action for some time. Now after 18 months of recovery I'm finally back on my board and couldn't be happier! Although I still don't have my full range of motion back, a knee brace gives me the protection, support, and the mental push to keep riding to my full potential."
