Why do you need snowboarding gloves with wrist guards?

This is one case where we’ll let the numbers tell the story:

  • 40% of all snowboard injuries are to the wrists
  • 24% of all snowboard injuries are wrist fractures.

When your feet are locked into your snowboard and you lose your balance, you’re going to fall either forwards or backwards. Think about what happens when you fall. You instinctively reach out your arms and hands to catch yourself. Snowboarding gloves with wrist guards help protect your wrists from injury. And the best part is, when you have a pair of snowboard gloves with built-in wrist guards, you’ll never have to worry about misplacing your wrist guards again.

How do snowboard gloves with wrist guards work?

A good pair of protective snowboard gloves has a built-in wrist guard to give you protection and support. XsportsProtective carries a full line of Level protective snowboarding gloves. All Level BioMex snowboard gloves feature BioMex wrist guards, which have been shown to reduce the likelihood of a snowboard wrist injury by 7.5 times. The Biomex wrist guard is flexible, shock reducing, and ergonomically designed. It is made from high-density rubberized plastic with a split "swallow-tail" wrist support that, upon impact, flexes to disperse the blunt force from a fall. The BioMex wrist guard also has a central pivot system at the base of the palm, so that you can position the two-piece guard in whichever way is most comfortable for you.

Some features to consider when choosing protective snowboarding gloves:

  • Wrist guards - integrated and/or removable
  • Durable construction - typically leather, synthetic leather
  • Knuckle protection - on fingers, thumb
  • Palm protection - padding and/or suede/suede-like reinforcement
