This document specifies the requirements and test methods for ergonomics, innocuousness, comfort/sizing, restraint, ability to limit wrist extension as well as provisions for marking and instructions supplied by the manufacturer for wrist protectors for all users of snowboard equipment. It does not apply to protectors used in roller sports or alpine skiing.

NOTE 1 The requirements of a clause take precedent over figures.

NOTE 2 The intent of this standard is to specify performance requirements of wrist protectors needed to reduce the risk of direct injury to the wrist caused by contact of the ground within the protective zone of the wrist protectors.

NOTE 3 The intent of this standard is to reduce the risk of injuries to the wrist and distal forearm without increasing the risk of injuries to the arm and shoulder of the user and without compromising the form or appeal of the sport.

NOTE 4 Snowboarding is a sport in which there is a risk of injury. This standard is intended only for wrist

protectors used for snowboarding. Snowboarding wrist protectors do not afford protection from impacts to the proximal forearm or fingers.

NOTE 5 The tests required to ensure that a wrist protector conforms to the requirements of this standard do not attempt to predict the performance of the wrist protector in all possible situations. This standard does not

address protection from axial forces caused by an impact on the fingers or fist. Moreover, this standard does not address protection against palmar flexion (terminal flexion) caused by an impact on the dorsal side of the hand.

NOTE 6 In order for a wrist protector to perform adequately, it must be in good condition, fit properly and not be altered in any way.

NOTE 7 This standard does not address accessories that are associated with a wrist protector.
