Really good wristguards for uni

Hi all,

About a couple of months ago I started wearing a new (new for me) type of
wristguards, made by Triple 8 <www.triple-eight.com>, called “Anti-gloves”. They
are awesome! They have a removable splint on the back and NO splint on the
front, just extra padding in the palm area. This means that they are way more
comfortable when holding onto or leaning onto the front handle of the seat.

The back splint is also removable and the wristguards still give very good
support without it (they have a wraparound velcro strap at the wrist), while
having enough wrist flexibility to be worn, for example, while practicing
artistic/freestyle stuff.

Cheers,

Kris.

Kris, Where do you find these? Also, I tried on some Boneshieldz wrist guards at
Boscov’s (department store) the other day and they were really uncomfortable. Is
this normal?
