R,E,D Wrist Gaurds.

What does everyone think of them. I just started learning to snowboard and sprained my wrist first time down. Grabbed some gaurds from the car and finished the -18 degree day with just liner gloves on.

I got them because they fit under my gloves. They aren't stiff and that concerns me. Opinions?

If you're referring to the soft wrist guards with no metal or hard plastic braces in them, that will not help you much. Dakine makes a hard wrist guard that doesn't have the extra brace on the back of the hand. That would be a better way to go and should fit under your gloves.

Best style but probably won't fit under gloves:


Good style without the extra support on the back of the hand.




Soft style will not help: (might be wrong picture)

Definitely invest in some hard guards. I am. I sprained my left wrist pretty bad in Telluride.

I just picked up the red wrist gaurds last night and haven't used them but I have the Burton impact gloves and have used them two seasons(similar protection built in). With the RED It's true they're more of a softer gaurd that allows some range of motion and they'll definately help to some degree(and better than some other gaurds I've seen). They're just fine for what I use them for. I've never seen the dakine ones but the thing I really like about the red ones is how slim they are. They fit under my gloves well compared to others. I didnt even have to size up On gloves to make em fit undernearth. As long as you get the right size that fits they can work well I'd imagine. Because at first it didn't seem very protective till I grabbed a smaller size.

I invested in Level wrist guard glove when I started out. Once I broke the habbit of falling on my wrist, I sold them. They are worth every penny.

Level Gloves: great selection of Level snowboard gloves with BioMex wrist guards.

Are the dakine ones the gaurds that only have protection on the palm side ofthe wrist? Idk bout those I've tried on a pair like that and I think my red's are better... Seriously though try on the red's at the store if you can and see for yourself. They're pretty good if u want an underglove type. whether they work for you or not depends on what kind of riding you do.

soft guards won't help? yeah they will. hard guards are great at preventing wrist injuries and sending the shock up your arm and injuring another part of your body like your arm or shoulder. you guys should look it up.

Wrists are far easier to brake than the arm and tend to have complications that stick around.
