edit: wtf my pc is acting strange...nvm what i said before

one of those isn't going to protect your ankle from a great shock. e.g. landing from a b-hop or flyout, they are mainly used so your ankle doesnt twist or bend in a way it shouldn't

i suggest you resting for at least a week. stay away from any major walking/running/jumping and no bmxing!

if your ankle gets really bad, show up in A + E in hospital or go see a physio..

my ankle has a torn ligament. after 1 week i can walk again.. yesterday i walked to the shops..(like 200M from my house) was a seriously bad idea (as my foot is quickly self destructing) my foot has swollen up again and now i cant move :( back on crutches.


rest it, best advice i can give you

hope it helped

yes it does, some of them prevent against ankle bite too...after i was using mine for a while, found that it ended up hurting my ankle more after it was healed, so once your almost fully healed take that thing off and let your ankle roam free or it could end up hurting you more:p

Is it padded at all or just a strap type thing? (under the foot)

I just got a set of the older 661 guards, they take forever to get on and off, but they work quite well.
I've had a bad ankle the last 2 months or so, and I've recently started whips again, and trying whips on drops etc, my right ankle (right foot foreward, too) has been taking a few hits, but since I got the guards earlier this week, I've been out riding twice with them, and they're really really good.

It's mainly just a nylon boot type thing with a plastic insert on both sides of the ankle, cupping the ankle bone and going up about 3 inches. (the older 661's)
