Which Mountain Bike Wrist Braces are Right for You?

Wrist braces for mountain bike are designed to stabilize the wrists and keep them from moving too far in any one direction without limiting your free range of motion. With sinch tight velcro straps and support that ranges from just past the wrist to half way up the forearm. There are stiff padding or splints on the dorsal, back of, side of the wrist which direct the force of an impact from the sensitive wrist ligaments to the stronger regions of the forearm.

How do you protect your wrists and thumbs?

The Troy Lee Designs mountain bike wrist protectors distribute the force of impacts when falling to the hands while riding from the wrist and hand to the middle of the forearm, with their longer support guard design, this acts as a brace, keeping the hand and wrist area tight, not allowing it to move too far back, front or to either side, while allowing you to grip your handle bars and ride comfortably. The smaller wrist wraps mountain bike wrist braces sinch tight around the wrist and/or have a slot for a thumb for added control and support. These also include the dorsal wrist protection, a stiff piece of Kevlar or plastic to prevent the wrist from bending too far in any one direction.
