    wrist guards?

    I have a wrist that has hit the ground one-too-many times, and I was wondering if any companies sell wrist guards made specifically for cycling. I wear gloves, but even the slightest impact kills my wrist, and I do tend to fly over the bars now and again. I have some old rollerblade wrist protector/gloves, that I might grind the palm nubs off of if I can't find something else.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Or better yet, do a search in the dh/fr forum. I know I've seen posts on the subject there. Sometimes those guys get spastic if you ask a question that's already been asked

    Good job! 661 guards

    661 make wrist guards. I've had a few wrist injuries so I bought them a month or so back. prefer them for DH over XC, gear-changing on my DH bike requires less finesse, but I have dual control XT on my XC bike. The guards lift a section of your palm off the handlebars, but I reckon they are worth it if you're worried about smashing your wrists up any more.
