Default wrist problems

Does anyone out there have a method by which a guy can make his wrists stronger? mine always crap out when i ride and that it difficult to go for a longer ride/race. Do wrist braces help? or do they get in the way of gloves? any suggestions would be most welcome.

I don't know about making the wrist stronger but I have a lot of pain in my wrist from arthritis and I made a brace that totally prohibits wrist movement and I installed a thumb throttle. It works. I still have some pain but at least now I can ride. CITI makes a wrist brace that can totally restrict wrist movement or limit it to a set degree.

I am using this http://www.powerballs.com/ at my physiotherapists to get my hand/wrist back into shape after my CTS release surgery and it works. Does it ever give your wrist and forearm a workout! May be good for guys who get arm pump also! After about 90 seconds my wrist and arm were very tired. I am thinking of getting one for home.

I think about the best thing out there is the Flexx Bars from Fasst Company. Almost everyone who uses them comments on how easy on the wrists thay are. Kinda pricey but not if it keeps you comfy all day riding. Can't really put a price on that.

Tons of info,reviews, bar setups/handguard mount options over at KTM Talk for the Flexx bars by the way.

Here is a review from Racer X Canada for you

I have one of these powerballs,, works great but seldom use it as my dogs freak out and attack my hand trying to get to it.. Broke two so far, if you loose grip and they hit the floor they usually shatter big time if at a high rpm. Something about the noise gets the dogs going..

Its the frequency. My dog would destroy that in minutes if she got it. She can pop tennis balls now, had to get "special" thick ones. Maybe I'll try squeezing those?

Spend time getting your forks as good as they can be. Not only will you not get beat up, but an improved ride inspires confidence and you will tend not to hold on so tight.
