Should I Have My Wrists Protected?
No matter what is your discipline, whether it is rollerblading, skating or other extreme sport out there.. You should always protect your wrists and keep them away from any potential injuries.
As humans, our natural reflex is to protect our body with our hands and so we try to place our hands either on front of us or behind us when falling.. It's what we call catching the ground. So if we naturally fall on our wrists to protect ourselves, we are also very likely to injure our wrists in the process. Therefore it is extremely important to have your wrists protected when shredding in the streets or at the skatepark.
Wrist Guards Sizing
It is important to get the correct size for your wrist guards as they become less effective once their too big or too small. A wrist guard that is too big will be too loose and might slide when skating. When the wrist guard is too small, you might not be able to close it or it will be super tight and uncomfortable.
All of the wrist guards
come with size guides so be sure to follow them in order to get a
size that matches your wrists!
