I live and work on the mountain, so it's pure torture not being able to ride. I am thankful for the 40-some days I got in so far, but it looks like that might be it. If I am extremely careful, I might be able to sneak out for some spring riding if I wear a wrist guard and take it VERY easy (don't tell the dr).

Anyway, I'm looking for opinions on the gloves with built-in wrist guards. I think Dakine makes some. How much protection do they really offer? Would I be better off wearing something from the Dr., or a more protective piece? Anyone ride with wrist guards? How bad does it suck? Etc. Etc...

thanks for any and all help. I just want to get back out there asap!!!
Level SuperPipe Pro, protective gloves. Not the warmest...but really protective.

My gf is learning this year and its the first thing i made her buy, them and a helment... but she blew her knee out instead getting off the lift... LOL.

I think wrist gaurds are a good idea.
I wear the Dakine ones as well. They fit well, have top and bottom support. Easily fit under my burton gloves.

It's easy to snap the wrist back by wrenching on the fingers end in Level gloves.

I'm over it. Learn to fall not on wrists

I've been debating on the flexmeter wrist guards, but man they are pricey!

I don't fall on them anymore either...but the protection on the palm ( Kevlar) and rubber on the back is pretty cool to have in the woods or icy runs.

I'm on the verge of taking the wrist protective parts out of mine. I probably won't, but they'd be more comfortable without them.

Wore pipe gloves for the last couple days and it's great

Haha, yehman. I had to swallow some wrist pain fear when not wearing them, but it was good. Especially riding hard pack. Actually, I thought about my hands less not wearing big gloves.

Hell yes for new snow, looking good here for last bit of the week. FINALLY
