(Scroll down for Wrist Guard Sizing Tips.)
Flexmeter/Docmeter Gloves with Wrist Guards Intergrated are our Top-of-the-Line Product for Snowboard Wrist Protection!
To select the best size for you, measure the distance from the tip of your middle finger to the base of your palm. (The base of your palm is where your skin creases when you bend your hand forward over your wrist).
Next, select your size from these guidelines:
SMALL – Up to 17.5 cm (about 7 inches)
MEDIUM – 17.5cm to 20.0 cm (about 7 inches to 8 inches)
LARGE- More than 20.0 cm (about 8 inches)
Use a measuring tape and measure the widest part of the hand without the thumb to determine your hand circumference. (Remember that circumference is the distance AROUND the hand, top and bottom.
SMALL – Less than 18 cm (7 inches) :
MEDIUM – Between 18 and 19.75 cm (7 inches – 7.75) :
LARGE – More than 20 cm (about 8 inches)

Check the Fit
When you receive your Flexmeter Wrist Guards, put them on and tighten the straps, then check to see that the “Flex Zone” of the wrist guard lines up with the part of your wrist that bends upward.
And check that the top of the wrist guard near your knuckles does not extend past your knuckles, or it will be uncomfortable when you fall.

Will YOUR Glove or Mitten FIT over Flexmeter Wrist Guards?
Please note that Flexmeter Wrist Guards are worn UNDER your snowboard gloves. You probably need a larger snowboard glove with a wide opening to fit over the Flexmeter Wrist Guard. We sell warm Flexmeter mittens and gloves designed to go over Flexmeter Wrist Guards.
Or choose our Top-of-the-Line product, the Flexmeter Glove with Single Wrist Protection integrated right into the glove, or the Flexmeter Glove with Double Wrist Protection integrated right into the glove. These are easier to wear because you just slide them on, and give the strap a pull to tighten in one easy operation.
The Flexmeter Glove with Wrist Guard integrated is what I wear!
