LEVEL snowboarding gloves with BioMex wrist guards can reduce the chance of a snowboard wrist injury by 7.5 times
All LEVEL Snowboard Gloves with wrist guards feature LEVEL BioMex protection. The BioMex design is the result of an extensive, ongoing collaboration between snowboarders, the medical community, and engineers.
A four-year study conducted by the St. Moritz (Switzerland) Orthopaedic Hospital involving more than 40,000 snowboard hours and more than 2,400 participants showed that snowboarders who wear conventional snowboard wrist guards are 4.5 times less likely to suffer wrist injuries over those who don’t wear wrist guards at all. However, LEVEL's BioMex wrist protection system reduces the likelihood of a snowboard wrist injury by 7.5 times.
The BioMex wrist guard is flexible, shock reducing, and ergonomically designed. It is made from high-density rubberized plastic with a split "swallow-tail" wrist support that keeps your wrist in an anatomically correct position, to better disperse the impact forces during a fall.

What's the difference between different LEVEL snowboard gloves with Wrist Guards?
We get asked often about the difference between different LEVEL snowboarding glove models. Here's a table that summarizes all the performance features of the different models, and then some additional guidance to help you choose:
- What's the same? LEVEL's BioMex wrist guard is integrated into the glove liner across all models of gloves in the LEVEL BioMex gloves line-up. This includes all price points - from the Youth Fly Junior gloves all the way up to the Super Pipes. So, from a wrist protection standpoint, you can be assured you are getting advanced wrist protection from all of the LEVEL snowboard gloves. You can learn more about the LEVEL BioMex wrist protection system.
- Super Pipe vs Half Pipe Models - The difference between the LEVEL SuperPipe XCR Gloves and the LEVEL HalfPipe XCR Gloves is three main things:
- The SuperPipe has a generous amount of leather across both the front and back side of the gloves, including knuckle padding over your first knuckles.
- The Superpipes have more extensive Kevlar on the palm side to protect the gloves from board grabs. The Kevlar extends all the way up the inside of your thumb.
- Finally, the Superpipes have SuperFabric along the outside of the hand, for stronger durability while reaching down to support yourself during turns
- Halfpipe vs the Fly/Butterfly Models - The difference between the LEVEL HalfPipes and the LEVEL Fly Gloves are significant. The Fly gloves do NOT have GoreTex, nor the upgraded interior liner. In addition, the Half/Supers feature the dual-density pad attached to the BioMex guard that improves comfort. These differences hold the price down to make the LEVEL Fly Gloves the value choice within the line, but not as warm or dry as the upgraded HalfPipes.
- Fly Trigger vs Regular Fly - What about the difference between the LEVEL Fly Trigger gloves and the LEVEL Fly gloves? The difference is in finger design of the gloves. The LEVEL Fly Triggers are half glove and half mittens - i.e. your thumb and index finger are independent like a glove, but the last 3 fingers are together like a mitten. (NOTE: the interior liner of the Fly Triggers is still a glove style for all 5 fingers, as it is with all LEVEL Mitten models)
Our Picks for LEVEL Snowboarding Gloves
Naturally, we're partial to the LEVEL Super Pipe Gloves. Over the last few years, LEVEL has toned down the look a bit to make the SuperPipes more subtle (the studs on the fingers are gone) and refined. However, it's still at the top of LEVEL's line up of impressive protective snowboard gloves. The Super Pipe gets our vote for the Snowboarding Glove That Has Everything.
Very close behind the Super Pipes are the LEVEL Half Pipe Snowboard Gloves and Half Pipe Mittens. The Half Pipes offer the same BioMex wrist protection as the LEVEL Super Pipes but without some of the extra leather treatment and abrasion resistant fabric (and a bit lower price). The LEVEL Half Pipe gloves come in men's and women's Half Pipe glove versions as well as men's and LEVEL Half Pipe women's mitten styles.
