After doing some research, the most popular knee braces that pro motocross riders wear are Mobius, Pod and CTi.

The other notable brands worth mentioning are Leatt and Alpinestars, who also have high quality competitive knee braces.

Mobius and Pod are ‘off the shelf’ knee braces while CTi are custom fitted.

 Mobius, Pod, CTi and Leatt are all medically certified, which means that these knee braces are are claimable on insurance.

The Mobius X8 is very popular with pro motocross riders.

The only lone wolf in the field is Ken Roczen who uses a custom made knee brace from Germany called the Ortema Kcom.

With a price tag of about $3000!! though, they cost about as much as a used dirt bike and well out of the reach of us mere mortals.

As an example, here is a small list of pro motocross riders and their preferred knee braces.
