Can hand guards on a dirt bike really break your wrist if you get your hands caught in them if in a wreak?

I got some new hand guards and my friend told me Beware!

It's possible, I guess, if the bike flips backwards and you can't let go anymore. However, without them you can hurt your hand as well - all it takes is to hit a tree or fall on a rock with the hand grips. Decide what you rather have... :-)

I guess that would depend on what they are made out of. The stronger they are the more likely they could cause damage to you in an accident. I would assume most wouldn't but I would say there is a chance.

Haha I guess up to you. They are just to protect from mud and rocks etc being thrown at your hands right? I don't think you need something expensive.I have to say I don't think it will make a big difference one way or the other. I think it would be unlikely that your hand gets stuck in them and you break anything. I think it would be more likely you run into something and they would protect your hands. II guess pick which one you are more worried about.
