POD Active welcomes snocross legend Tucker Hibbert to the team
6th of February 2018 (Victoria, Australia) – POD Active is excited to welcome snowmobile snocross legend, Tucker Hibbert, to its team of elite athletes. Hibbert has put his trust in POD’s K8 Prepeg Carbon Knee Brace to protect him as he competes for his 11th Pro National Snocross title this winter.
“We’re excited to welcome Tucker to the POD family! His competitive nature and competency across Snowmobiling, Motocross and Mountain Bikes, coupled with his engineering brain are integral in design considerations for future POD braces and products. We have learnt this much so far, Tucker is not only a world-class athlete but he’s a world-class human,” said Byron Marsh, POD’s Marketing Manager.
Being a crossover athlete, Hibbert will wear the K8 brace year-round while competing in motocross as well. With his passion for technical design and safety, his diverse knowledge of both sleds and bikes, he’s already working with POD’s engineering team to test, tune and provide feedback for future products.

It allows me to do what I need to do and keeps me protected. I’m pumped about how versatile the brace is and how easily it adapts to fit your needs. I compete in a lot of different sports and the fact that I have one brace that can do it all is awesome,” said Hibbert. He continued, “It’s been really exciting to work with the engineering team at POD to provide feedback for future brace development. Product development is one of my favorite parts about racing. You can never stop innovating and pushing to improve. It’s fun to work with a company that shares that passion and makes me confident I’m wearing the right brace.”
