Not all riders realize this, but an incredible amount of force – and strain – is constantly affecting both of your wrists while riding. Even during casual rides, this force can, and often does, lead to injuries and conditions that are much more serious than normal wrist strain. This is exactly why you see many of today’s top riders wearing wrist braces, during both professional competition and practice, to reduce the risk of suffering an injury to one of their wrists.
To combat wrist injury in motocross racing today, Allsport Dynamics offers a full line of professional wrist bracelets. Their comprehensive series of braces and support systems are meant to protect you against a wide range of wrist injuries and ailments, which can ultimately increase the length of your career as well as your overall performance on the track.
Their basic entry is the Allsport Dynamics M2 Wrist Support. Retailing for around $18.99, this simple device provides an adjustable compression support system for the wrist, while leaving the fingers and thumb free and unrestrained. It is manufactured in three different sizes, Small, Medium, and Large, so any rider, regardless of age or size, can use the Allsport Dynamics M2 Wrist Support. The device is usable on either the right or left hand.
If you need anything other than their basic model, you will have to be willing to shell out some big bucks. The Allsport Dynamics IMC Speed Wrist Brace, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $134.99, features quite a markup from the M2 Wrist Support – but the enhanced features of the IMC Speed Wrist Brace make it well worth the added cost. Specifically designed to inhibit wrist extension, the Allsport Dynamics IMC Speed Wrist Brace is ideal for those who are rehabilitating from a previous injury, or those who wish to prevent future occurrences.
Next in price is the Allsport Dynamics IMC Sport Wrist Brace. Similar in design to the IMC Speed Wrist Brace, the IMC Sport Wrist Brace is meant more for casual riders than professional racers. It still features all the benefits you would expect from a professional grade wrist support system, however, so it is suitable for use in professional competition. The Allsport Dynamics IMC Sport Wrist Brace has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $164.99.
Allsport Dynamics’ IMC Lacer Wrist Brace, well similar to other models in their wrist brace line, relies on a completely different strap system than their other supports. This results in an incredibly rigid feel, and one that still provides enough comfort to wear during a full day of racing. The Allsport Dynamics IMC Lacer Wrist Brace retails for around $179.99.
The Allsport Dynamics OH2 Speed Wrist Brace, worn by such riders as Justin Barcia and Jimmy Fitzpatrick, is the company’s best support system offered. Redesigned from previous versions to give you full control over the amount of wrist extension allowed, this piece is ideal for riders who suffer from acute pain or long-term injuries. The Allsport Dynamics OH2 Speed Wrist Brace has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $375.99.
