I'm considering buying 2 sets of wrist braces for myself and son and would like to hear some feedback before spending the $. Mostly concerned about comfort vs protection level and if it could actually cause more damage like a broken forearm when the wrist extension reaches the degree limit.

Old thread but I need a brace.

Mobius is $499.99. It surely appears to be worth it from design appearance but good lord, steep.

Any other lower cost brands? I need the mobility limiting the Mobius seems to provide.

I putting one together for the Allsport Dynamic braces. Got a few guys going to ride with them, and we will see what they say. I've rode with them 3 times and after moving them around and getting the fit right, I didn't even notice I had them on, and I'm a rider who doesn't even like my sleeves around my wrist.

Mobius Wrist Brace. I have been wearing theses braces for 5 months now.

The wear and tear of the brace has proven them to be sturdy. The neoprene layer that includes the loop that attaches thru the finger on the glove has not stretched or torn, it is easily removed to wash and it does form a bit to the arm it is used on. The cables, hard plastic, adjuster pad and pivot point has survived rocks and dirt clods on the track without issue. The adjuster pad will form to the joint as well.

Comfort wearing the braces is excellent while riding. In and around the pits I leave mine on and have learned to put my helmet on with gloves. However, they are easily removed, the hardest part about putting them on is sliding the velcro strap thru the opening provided at the rear of the brace.

There was an added to benefit to the peace of mind that comes with the added protection to my recently dislocated wrist, and it was the distribution of loads on the forearm/wrist from hard landings off of jumps, that is nice benefit.

Overall, my opinion is that they are not cumbersome at all, provided one uses a thin riding glove on the wrist being protected. The price point is good and customer service at Mobius has been excellent.

I broke the scaphoid in my left wrist ages ago and it never healed properly. Now the only fix is a wrist fusion. I’ve tried lots of different braces since the last 15 years. My favorite and most effective is also probably the least costly you can imagine.

I tape my wrist with athletic tape (use the under layer stuff first), and then a TLD skateboarding type wrist brace over a thin glove. The TLD brace was barely $40.

It takes some practice to find the perfect “tension” on the athletic tape and at first it is easy to wrap too tight. But I’ve got it down now and can wrap my wrist in barely 60 sec.

I had a scaphoid fx of right wrist. Metacarpal fx of
Left wrist and severed ligament on left wrist. When I had the casts removed, I had very limited movement. I did research on the Mobius and atlas braces. I talked to my surgeon and he told me that the wrist brace could save the wrist from another fx that would cause it to be fused. He said that the wrist brace would also potentially cause finger dislocation or fx or both. Having a fused wrist isn't as bad as having a fused finger. With a wrist, you still have dexterity and mobility. Fused fingers, you are jacked! I chose to not go down the wrist brace route.

I've tried to teach myself to crash with my hands in a fist position, but that's harder to do than I thought.

Good luck ??

I broke my scaphoid last year and ended up getting the carbon fiber Allsport Dynamic braves with the quick lace system. I don’t even notice I am wearing it when I ride.

I broke both radius' on my sx track came a little short on one of the triples. My right wrist rom is pretty normal my left is limited due to shattering the cup or home for the lunate bone. I wear all sports dinamics lacers on both and don't even realize they are there. They are awesome. First ride back on flat ground no braces I felt every bump and truck ruts pulled and thought I may not be able to do something I've done my whole life. The braces came in and awesome support didn't feel anything really. And I was back soaring the sky's again and hadn't rode with out them since.

Good review. Did you notice increase in arm pump when wearing the braces?

Mobius Wrist Brace has been a God-send for my wrist. Shattered my scaphoid 17 years ago and was in-operable. I'd say that that injury was way worse than compounding my femur in terms of long-term pain. Before the mobius there were days after riding long motos where I couldn't even turn a door handle, or lift a fork to my mouth to eat without excruciating pain. With the Mobius I can moto hard all day long, and while still sometimes my wrist is a bit tinder based on the amount of track abuse, I can open the door to my house and eat dinner like a normal person without dropping my fork in my lap and yelping in pain. Highly recommend.
