Wrist Wraps: Find the perfect wrap for you

"Hey Onyx, explain the difference between High Tops and Low Riders to me."

We would love to! We get this question a lot and we always want to ensure you're using the right product for your needs in order to get the most out of your purchase. 

When decided between High Tops and Low Riders, it comes down to how much wrist wrap support you want. If you have had any wrist issues in the past or just like to ensure your wrist is locked in super tight preventing too much hyperextension, we suggest the High Tops. The additional leather that arches up along the back of your hand provides that extra support you need. 

If you prefer support that also allows mobility of the wrist joint rather than the additional coverage, the Low Riders are ideal. We also suggest the Low Riders if you do 'other' things with the wraps than just weightlifting, like CrossFit, where you're moving through various movements and don't want to be entirely restricted through your wrist. 

We have a variety of athletes from Weightlifting, CrossFit, ShotPut, Physique Training, and Powerlifting who fall in love with these wraps.
