Skateboard Wrist Guards

More than one-third of skateboard injuries are to the wrist: You need skateboard wrist guards

Skateboard wrist guards offer protection and support to your wrists so when you fall (and everybody does), the brace in the wrist guard bears the brunt of the impact, not your bones and tendons. XSportsProtective has a great selection of skateboard wrist guards from popular and reliable brands such as Triple Eight, ProTec, Pro Designed. Learn more about the different kinds of skateboarding wrist guards below.

How are wrist guards for skateboarding different from other wrist guards?

Skateboarding wrist guards come in three basic designs, offering you three different choices of skateboard protective gear.
  • Protective Skate Gloves with Integrated Wrist Guards: These protective skate gloves offer integrated skateboarding wrist guards, as well as finger, thumb and sometimes palm protection.
  • Standard Skateboard Wrist Guards: These skate wrist guards provide similar skateboarding safety protection as the skateboard gloves, but without protecting your fingers, thumbs or palms.
  • Skate Wrist Guards: These offer straight wrist protection, with short splints and/or battens that support the wrist. No palm or finger protection offered.
