Secure tread

Protect ankles, control movements and walk safely. 

During hiking, the ankle fulfils one of the most important tasks: it stabilises the foot and ensures its mobility.
The joint compensates for the many bumps on uneven trails away from paved paths – but only to a certain extent. Roots or stones on the trails can lead to jerky and fast movements of the feet to the outside or inside. Fail to pay attention for a moment and it happens: The foot twists and the hike ends. In Germany alone, around 10,000 people sprain their ankle every day. The worst part: Most people dismiss the sprain as a trifle. But a sprained foot should not be underestimated because every further twist causes injuries in the ankle. If proper healing doesn’t take place, the risk of osteoarthritis may increase. 

The Sports Ankle Support Dynamic protects ankles from buckling, hyperextension or lateral twisting. In addition, the support is extremely light. You’ll hardly notice as the innovative knit actively supports your ligaments with every step. Thus, the ankle sports brace provides the necessary security on particularly challenging trails, as if it weren’t even there.

Knee joint relief

Relieve knee joints and better protect against overuse. 

Nature to the right and left of the path, from local forests to fascinating mountain landscapes: hiking leaves an impression and offers pleasure for the senses.
Even though hiking is essentially a knee-friendly sport, it can definitely lead to joint problems. This is especially true on steep passages that lead down the mountain when pressure on the kneecap increases. Should they become overloaded, discomfort in the knee becomes noticeable and considerably affects the countryside experience. Therefore, it’s better to counteract this in advance. 

The Sports Support Line Knee Brace improves movement control with light pressure and keeps the knee joint secure during long walks and descents. At the same time, the durable sports brace massages your ligaments, tendons, muscles and connective tissue every step of the way with innovative pads. This positively affects your sensorimotor function. You perceive your gait better. Stress and risk of injury are reduced. Symptoms of overuse in the knee abate faster and your knee joints remain fit for the next hike!

Prepare for longer hikes

For satisfying hikes: Promote circulation and feel the freedom

Whether short trip, day trip, weekend excursion or a city walk off the beaten track – you want to enjoy your surroundings and take in the view as you reach your next destination.
You can support your body with the right hiking equipment – for example, with compression products - which increase your performance for longer. The Sports Compression Line leg sleeves and socks aid circulation through medical compression. In this way, more oxygen reaches stressed muscles in legs and feet. These warm up faster and regenerate better. 

The effect: You’re fit for longer and can hold your destination steadily in view. Thanks to improved circulation, you feel every movement more intensely and become one with nature. You provide your body with optimum support and retain power even on long and challenging hiking trails.
Increasing altitude or mile-long trails: climb peaks and steep trails and equip yourself with the Bauerfeind Sports Compression Line – for your long-lasting hiking experience and increased freedom.
