that's indeed how it is advertised; I also would love to believe it, but I just don't see it.. So you fall on your wrist, your wrist bends backwards (as in the top of your hand moves towards your forearm, ie hyperflexion). In doing so, the V-shaped part of the biomex becomes kind of floating and not sitting against your forearm anymore (or is there some magic way it stays there?). Now all that is left is a shock absorbing protection on your palm and no dissipation whatsoever.
I couldn't really find anyone saying anything bad about this type of protection so my logic above is probably not sound because I'm missing something, but what?
