Wrist guards are one of the required pieces of roller derby gear for a reason. As skaters fall, one of the primary points of impact is the wrist, while the fingers curl to protect from rolling skaters coming in from behind. Without this protection, the wrist can easily become over extended and sprain or strain. The hard impact absorbing plastic in the wrist guard takes that force and distributes it through the guard while keeping your wrist stable and supported. Some wrist guards are better than others, and some will offer more mobility than others. If you find that you use your hands frequently in roller derby, invest in wrist guards that offer freedom of movement.
