Level Half Pipe XCR Protective Snowboard Gloves for Women offer a unique combination of price and protection. Offering the same protection as the top-of-the-line Level Super Pipe snowboard gloves, but without the Super Pipe's leather gloves and knuckle protection, the Level Half Pipe Women's snowboard gloves are ideal for the boarder who wants the very best in protection and warmth, but who prefers to put her extra cash toward another lift ticket. What's different about the women's version of the Halfpipes vs the men's version? The only difference between the men's and the women's version of the Level snowboard gloves - beyond graphics and colors - is the size and stiffness of the integrated BioMex wrist guard inside the gloves. Specifically, the women's version of the BioMex guard is slightly smaller and more flexible than the men's version. This is to account for the smaller hands and lighter weight of women boarders vs the typical guys. We prefer to outfit women in women's version of Level protective gloves, but it's ok for women to use the men's version, too. Why is the Level BioMex Wrist Protection system so unique? Watch this 5 min video for an explanation of the BioMex wrist guard, and why it is so effective at preventing wrist injuries.
Level's BioMex wrist protection system is the result of an extensive, ongoing collaboration between snowboarders, the medical community, and engineers. A four-year study conducted by the St. Moritz (Switzerland) Orthopedic Hospital involving more than 40,000 snowboard hours and more than 2,400 participants showed that snowboarders who wear conventional wrist guards are 4.5 times less likely to suffer wrist injuries over those who don't wear wrist guards. Level’s BioMex Wrist Protection System reduces 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. And the BioMex wrist guard has a central pivot system at the base of the palm, so that you can position the two-piece guard in whichever way it is most comfortable for you. All Level gloves and mittens feature BioMex wrist guards and removable/washable liners. The Super Pipe snowboard gloves and Half-Pipe snowboard gloves and snowboard mittens feature dual density guards that offer higher resistance and advanced comfort over the standard BioMex guard. You can easily remove the BioMex insert so you you can wear it without the liner on warmer days.
