Asterisk, which has been present in motocross, ski, wakeboard and snowmobile markets since 2000, will soon be back in the medical market as well. Asterisk was started by a group of athletes, including several motocross riders with extensive backgrounds in the design and use of orthopedic devices.

The motivation behind the formation and growth of the company was, and still is, to bring state-of-the-art protection and performance products directly to the athletes. Asterisk introduced the Cell Knee Protection System as its first product in April 2001 to satisfy the need for high-level knee protection, making them available directly to athletes at an affordable price.
