3.0 out of 5 stars Functional, but single use.
By A. Ross on June 19, 2018
I had these for less than a week before crashing at 20 mph on an electric skateboard. It without a doubt saved my wrist, which would've definitely been broken without the guard, but ended up as shown in the picture.

It didn't feel secure with one strap ripped like that, so I ended up sewing some soft leather on the inside to hold together and that has been working well and feels much more sturdy. The material it comes with is a very thin mesh that won't handle more than mild friction, if that.

To conclude I'd say the guard is definitely functional and safe, but is kind of a single use item that won't last more than a couple significant falls. That being said, it's early repairable.

5.0 out of 5 stars SAVED my wrist!!!
By Carolyn on July 7, 2021
So, so, so very grateful for these. I was going down a hill too quickly when I saw a patch in the asphalt that looked super uneven, and I was afraid I'd lose control of my board going over it. I tried to bail, but managed to crash headlong into the asphalt while going way too fast. I landed squarely on my left wrist and shaved about 1/4" off these wrist savers. My hand and wrist is completely, totally fine. Not a scratch on it, not bruised, and not sore. After I landed on my wrist, I instinctively rolled onto my right side and onto my ribs, which were not so lucky, and are bruised and painful. I can't imagine how torn up/broken/destroyed my hand and wrists would have been without these. I will 100% continue to wear these, no matter what! I am so grateful I had them on, and that they're designed incredibly well so that my fingers didn't even touch the ground. Thank you for making these!!

5.0 out of 5 stars They paid for themselves already.
By Steve N on August 4, 2021
I wiped out at 20mph into concrete on an electric skateboard. Was wearing these and a pair of low profile under-jeans knee pads from the same brand. I destroyed my remote and tore a hole in my pants but walked away with no injuries.

Wrist guards and knee pads are a must if you're into extreme sports. And these wrist guards work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple easy on and off
By Student for Life on September 4, 2021
Beware the product runs small. Small doesn't fit an adult woman. Medium barely fits a small man.
I'm using this with electric unicycles, powered micromobility, so I want safety gear that takes zero time to place or remove, and I don't notice I'm wearing it. Doesn't work if you don't wear it, right? The glove model simply pulls on with a loop and tightens with only one strap. To remove I pull up the strap, put a finger through the skid (palm) plate and pull. I added retro-reflective DOT-C2 tape for unmistakably clear hand-signalling in evening traffic.
