Wobbie...I know that DBD wears wrist braces, although I can't remember which brand. You might want to check with him.

After last weekend I am seriously considering getting some wrist braces. I hit a good sized rock with my back tire and it jarred the heck out of my left wrist. It hurt so bad I had to stop for a minute.

GOOD THREAD Mrs.Twister!! I too have been thinking of getting wrist braces but I was wondering how they feel.Do they take some getting used to?Do they effect your grip?

I've taken big notice of the cti's for wrists in TWMX. I'm less than 100% in my right wrist and have been considering braces on both. I wear the Asterisk knee braces even though I have no knee problems. Just trying to be preventive. : It didn't take long to get use to them and now I feel very awkward without them. I bet the wrist braces would be the same. I'm like you, Robbie. I'm looking for a way to get them without a perscription. Ouch!! I want them before another injury!
And Ek, from the write-ups I've read, they don't affect your grip at all.

I was thinking the same thing recently, only about kidney belts. Anyone try them or use them? I have chronic back pain, related to mild scoliosis, so i was wondering how much it would help. Are they uncomfortable?

I might think about one depending on how my wrist feels after memorial day weekend. I could easily get one prescribed since I get disability for my right wrist. Hmmmmmmmm

I use wrist braces, not heavy duty ones. I dont find that they inhibit any movement that i wouldnt want them to , they just make your wrist feel secure. I dont wear them riding around the house for an hour-less but if Igo on a riding-trip for more than a day i find them invaluble- just like boots or anthing else...........If you ever get sore wrist you wont regret buyin them.

lol ok yea im awake.. workin nights really gets to ya. Anyways about the wrist brace. I LOVE mine. Its very akward for the first couple times but after you get used to it i feel wierd without it. I got mine from a dealer in garland right after i broke my wrist on new yrs eve. IT was like $400 i think. very expensive but better than a rebroken wrist. It has saved me a couple times allready. Basically it allows you to move your wrist but only to a certain degree, then after that point there is NO WAY you can extend it anymore. It fits over your glove and jersey or under whichever you prefer. I put it under my jersey and over my glove. i found that more comfy. You can buy them custom made in any degree and any color you want. They take a mold of your wrist and send it in and have one made to your specifications. Pretty cool deal if you ask me. Anyways ill get some pics of it if your interested.

$400 dollars is just way to much for me right now.Is there any cheeper ones that work decent?I wear both knee braces and kidney belt,and have never even noticed them once I was riding.Now if you sit alot then the kidney belt seems to start to bother my gut where the top of it is,but I never have sore kidneys or back pain after riding.And as for the knee braces I just feel more secure with them on.

I agree with you ekholms, 400.00 is alot. I found some EVS wrap type that would probably help but not a true brace. The search continues......
