Level Super Pipe Snowboard Gloves - What's BioMex and Why Do I Need It?
Level's BioMex wrist protection system is the result of an extensive, ongoing collaboration between snowboarders, the medical community, and engineers. A four-year study conducted by the St. Moritz (Switzerland) Orthopaedic Hospital involving more than 40,000 snowboard hours and more than 2,400 participants showed that snowboarders who wear conventional wrist guards are 4.5 times less likely to suffer wrist injuries over those who don't wear wrist guards. Level's BioMex Wrist Protection System reduces the likelihood of a snowboard wrist injury by 7.5 times. The Biomex wrist guard is flexible, shock reducing, and ergonomically designed. It is made from high-density rubberized plastic with a split "swallow-tail" wrist support that, upon impact, flexes to disperse the blunt force from a fall. And the BioMex wrist guard has a central pivot system at the base of the palm, so that you can position the two-piece guard in whichever way it is most comfortable for you. All Level gloves and mittens feature BioMex wrist guards and removable/washable interior liners. Since 2012, the Super Pipe and Half-Pipe snowboard gloves and mitts feature dual density guards that offer higher resistance and advanced comfort over the standard BioMex guard found in the Fly/Butterfly models.
