Boxing wraps are designed to hold your joints in place (metacarpals and wrists), as well as preventing irritation in areas that suffer repeated blows. By absorbing perspiration from your hands, the wraps also protect the linings of your boxing gloves.
There are two types of boxing wrap: - The 100% polyester model is recommended for boxers who want flexibility and support. This model comes in 2.5 metre (98 in) lengths. - The 100% cotton model is recommended for boxers wanting more support and better perspiration absorption. This model comes in 3.5 metre (137.8 in) lengths.
The size of a wrap can be adapted based on your body size, the sport you are doing and your standard.
There are several methods for putting on your wraps. Watch a few videos and choose the method that suits you best.
Wash before use. Machine wash at 30°C. Dry naturally before rolling them up. Polyester wraps dry more quickly than cotton models.
