HOW TO SIZE: Measure from the base of your palm (where the wrist creases) to the base of the middle finger. You will be measuring the palm section on hand only. Use this measurement against the size chart below. If you fall between two sizes, please select the smaller size (as the palm piece is leather, it will stretch slightly with wear).

Between 6 cm-7 cm | 2.5 inch - 3 inch
Between8cm - 9 cm | 3 inch - 3.5 inch

Please note: ALL guards should be checked with your coach prior to use, to ensure the size is correct for you. If guards have been named/ worn/ marked we are unable to exchange or refund. Incorrect use of guards may result in serious injury.
You must replace guards each year, or at the first sign of a tear
In the case of a tear, discontinue use of guards IMMEDIATELY and replace
The higher the skill level & hours trained is relative to how often you will need to replace your guards. Higher hours & skills = more frequent replacement. This is to ensure your safety on bars
Do not cut the dowel of the grips! The leather can expand and it will risk an accident.
Do not use water on your grips, the leather will harden and snap.
If finger holes are too small, you can abrade it with sandpaper slowly. DO NOT use a knife or scissors. DO NOT make finger holes too big they will stretch, this risks the guards slipping off.
