About a month later, a friend of mine fractured their wrist in a fall on the Friday Night Skate while wearing full split wrist guards. So, clearly, there are conditions where no pad will help. On the other hand, I have been wearing palm sliders for 20 years and this is the first time I've ever damaged my wrists.
