Protect Your Wrists While You Are Riding

March 06, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 154

If you have ever enjoyed BMX or mountain bike, you would certainly be aware about the importance of protecting yourself against injuries. This is why you wear protection accessories such as helmets, knee pads, elbow pads, padded shorts etc. However, amongst these many choices of protection accessories for biking, you should choose them on the basis of their usage and the way they would protect you from injuries.

When you are riding, possibility of falling is present all the time regardless of how good you are at your sport. Quite simply, players who have mastered the game also sometimes fall, and sometimes their injuries can cost them a lot. They may prevent them from playing that sport further or sometimes, they can cause permanent disablements and disfigurements. This is why it is crucial to understand the level of severity of the injuries.

During most of the falls, you often land on your hands. This means that your palms are often the first point of contact with the ground. Then, the force of impact applies to your wrists, which is a relatively weaker part of your hands. This is where the need for protecting your wrists arises. In order to protect your wrists, you should try to land safety onto your fists instead of open hands. If you land on your fists, the force of impact traverses to many other parts of your body since you are more balanced.

The most common injuries to your wrists are sprains, fractures, twists and breakages. You can reduce the severity of these injuries by wearing appropriate wrist guards. These wrist guards are especially designed for those who are into adventure sports and are highly prone to getting their wrists injured.

Also, since most of these adventure sports require you to move at high speeds, possibility of accumulation of moisture and sweat becomes a concern as well. Most of the professional wrist guards from companies like Protec, Triple Eight, 187 Killer Pads, Docmeter etc. are designed with the breathability in mind. They are constructed with breathable fabric and impact resistant foam. This ensures that you do not experience any discomfort due to moisture being accumulated inside your wrist guards.

Wrist guards are useful not only for bike riding but they are also useful for other adventure sports, such as skateboarding, longboarding, skiing, snowboarding etc. This is because of the fact that your wrists are prone to injuries upon a ground impact, which is a common occurrence during all of these sports.
