Shadow Ankle Brace-- pretty good!

I've ridden with so many ankle braces in my lifetime. I wanted to write a quick summary of my thoughts on the Shadow Revive ankle brace.

The revive provides an elastic tension around the ankle that allows good range of motion while still guarding nicely against sprains as well. It's comfy. It will not lock your ankle down like most lace-up braces (e.g. the ASO lace-up and the 'Space Brace' which are heavy duty braces and can be uncomfortable after an hour or so). From my month's experience with it, it's a functional middle-of-the road ankle brace. How surprising from a bike parts company!

That being said, you've got to tighten it properly: Don't pull the support straps taught around the underside of your foot while tightening the first part of the figure 8. Instead, the first half of the figure 8 should be flush against the skin but not tight. THEN the second and top half of the figure 8 which goes around the back of your ankle should be secured with strong tension. Wrapping the underfoot too tightly causes horrible cramping.

It's like 25 bucks and I really dig it. PS I have no ulterior motives for writing this review. I'm just a dude who likes it.

Now go ride that bike!

Wow, 25 bucks for that brace is a really ridiculous price. I have used some terrible ankle braces that cost much, much more than this one. Even the one recommended by my doctor was pretty trash, and I had to pay 55 bucks for that one! At last, I have decided to look for other options. I have read many reviews, and I still couldn't fix myself on which one I should get. Finally, I decided to get an orthopedic brace which I found on https://remaininthegame.ca/product-category/orthopedic-bracing-support/ankle-brace-support/. There you can also find a helpful guide on how to use those braces in the right way.

Always ride with the ankle guards and (left) brace. Super supportive yet low profile.

How is it different from a typical ACE brace from a grocery store?
