Triple Eight Hired Hands Protective Gloves: That’s a Funny-Looking Wrist Guard

Triple Eight’s Hired Hands skate gloves offer integrated hand and wrist protection with a stylish, understated look. When you fall, the natural reaction is to put out your hands to break your fall. The force of the fall can often cause your wrist to torque or twist violently, causing a sprain or break. The curved ABS splints on the top and bottom of the hand help to stabilize and protect your wrist when you fall. If you’re going to be skating easy one day, remove the splints and you have a standard pair of protective skateboarding gloves without a wrist guard.
