I've been using the Demon Flex wrist guards this season and they've been great.
I used to have the Dakine ones that you have, but I didn't like them because there was nothing on the back sides to actually stop my wrists from flexing in that direction too far, which would cause a sprain. They were also uncomfortable and kind of bulky.
The Demon Flex ones are so much better- they're completely low-profile, have splints on both sides, lighter, offer better protection, and are so comfortable I literally forget I'm wearing them.
Another benefit I have from them is that they keep my jacket's wrist gaiters in place. They used to pull back behind my thumb every time I bent over to strap in (because I'm kind of tall), which was uncomfortable on my hands. Now I wear them over the Demon Flex guards and they haven't been a problem- it's actually made the wrist gaiters more comfortable to wear.
So they have a lower profile, lower price, and offer just as much protection as the Flexmeter wrist guards. And putting my gloves on over them is insanely easy
I would grab a pair of these if I were you. The reason I got them in the first place was because for the last 5 seasons I've sprained my wrists multiple times, which was annoying. Hasn't happened with these!
Here's a link to them on Demon's website. If you do get a pair, make sure you check the size chart first.
