Knee brace
FUll Lower Body Support

Meet the world’s first Supportive Apparel. The K1 Tempo leverages the Embrace System™, a proprietary technology which provides both medical-grade bracing and full lower body support. While our products were originally designed to support your knees, we have repeatedly received feedback from our athletes reporting that our products also improve lower back and hip pain.


Innovative technical knitting within all K-Line products allows us to provide targeted compression zones. These areas of compression put pressure on your muscles to help minimize delayed onset muscle soreness. K-Line products are designed to increase blood flow and promote healing so that you’re able to benefit from faster recovery times between hikes.

Hiking on uneven or challenging terrain requires an increased awareness of the position of your body while you move. The Embrace System™ was designed to provide greater proprioception—enhanced body awareness and control.

Integrated & Customizable Support

This Embrace System™—an intricate network of cables, control dials and compression zones—provides medical grade bracing support that is designed to mimic your body's ligaments on ascents and descent. The support system is completely customizable and can be engaged or disengaged on the move. 


The Embrace System™ is made up of 90 feet (30 meters) of high-strength fibrous cables that are inserted into the fabric and designed to facilitate your body’s natural movement and provide greater proprioception. All of this helps to enhance your body awareness and control, while allowing you to have a full range of motion while hiking on any terrain.

“I am in love! I've been wearing a traditional chunky knee brace for over a year and a half now, and testing out my K1 for the first time felt like opening a door into a crazy new world of knee support. The K1 is so comfortable and allows for a full range of motion while still providing support that I can trust.”
