there are the Burton Impact gloves that I consider the best.

then there are the Burton Support gloves.. not too good.

I think there are few more out there...

But the impact gloves are by far the best.. I have gotten my friends to get them too.. about 4 friends got them after I told them about it.. hard to find though..

Quite a few topics on this subject, here are two:

I used to have the Burton Impact gloves, didn't like that your palm takes all the impact. There is no reinforcement there, just in the back of your hand. Makes no sense to me.

i'd say impact gloves as well. The reinforcement is at the back of your hand to prevent ur wrist from breaking, while still being able to hold things without removing the gloves.

You can also get separate wrist guards over your gloves.

I dont mean to take over the thread but do wrist guards really do anything. Ive heard that they can sometimes cause you to break your arm?
I make handmade longboards PM me for info.

If I was going to wear wrist guards I would buy them seperately. What happens if you buy the gloves with the built in guards and you really hate it? You would have to get all new gloves instead of just not using the wrist guards under them.

Mostly this is an urban myth. But if you're really worried about it you can try Level gloves or other products with Biomex tech which claims to prevent it.

i have burton impacts.  i dont think they really give that much support.  and the fingers are starting to get torn up from ice when i only used them about 10 days last season.  im thinking of getting flexmeter wristguards.
Longboarderdude, if you're concerned about the broken arm, look into flexmeter.  they talk about the possibility of the impact just being pushed up the arm with normal wristguards.

AussieBoarder -- in general, the arm heals better and easier than the wrist.

That's the truth.

My mom broke her wrist as a teenager and something went wrong during the recovery. To this day, she can't bend her wrist back more than 45 degrees. Arms are a more straightforward heal the vast majority of the time.

I have been using Flexmeter gloves when I go riding and saved me from broken wrist many times coming off kickers.  I found out about it from "http://www.ski-injury.com/prevention/wrist_guards" and the doctor from that site recommended Flexmeter or Biomex wrist guards.

Get the level gloves. They really work and they have lots of high end glove tech on them that makes them worth the money.
I broke both wrist on a bad fall playing basketball 10 years ago. to this day if I fall my wrist start killing me.
I got the level gloves and a couple of $5 neoprene wrist wraps at Walgreen's and I can now fall as much as I want with no pain.

I might have to try out a pair of these flex masters... see if they are better than the impact..

impact gave me alot of support when i was first starting.
I would hurt my wrists alot before I got the impact gloves.
after that I was pretty much good

I broke my wrist last season when i wasn't wearing wrist guards. Apparently it's not really true about breaking ur arm cos u've got wrist guards on.

And in regards to ur mum's wrist it was probably cos it it didn't heal in the correct position. When i broke my wrist my bone moved a bit so they had to pull it back into place and if that didn't work i would have had to have surgery to correct it otherwise the doc said i wouldn't have full wrist movement. Happily let them pull it back into place to avoid surgery.

don't get inbuilt ones, get separate ones that either go under or over the gloves :)

Agree wtih above poster. Get a pair of comfortable wrist guards and use under gloves/mittens. You'll probably not need wrist guards after a few weeks.
Shop smart... Shop S-Mart.

I haven't fell hard enough for my wrist guards to save my wrists from breaking but they sure prevent my wrists from feeling sore the next day.

I think gloves with built-in wrist guard usually quite hard and less flexible.

I think in NZ I have only see the Burton ones around.

Level Gloves with the Biomex inserts.  The Biomex inserts are small and more comfortable.  They can be removed from the gloves if your doing something where you don't need the extra support , like shoveling the driveway.  They inserts are only on the front and are less constricting than most of the others.

I switched from using the DaKine wrist guards under my (one size larger) gloves.
