The BetterGuard

High-performance ankle support for elite athletes

Take a closer look

Mini ankle stabilizer

The mini ankle stabilizer adapts to your movements and works like an artificial ligament. It offers freedom of movement during normal gameplay and instant support when twisting forces in the ankle joint reach dangerous velocities.

Adjustable, dual-strap closure

The adjustable, dual-strap closure system gives you the perfect fit for your ankles. It sits above the shoe line for easy access, so you can adjust your fit in game without unlacing your shoes.

Ankle compression sleeve

The BetterGuard is made with breathable, lightweight compression, making it 40% lighter than traditional ankle braces.

System strap

The system uses an adjustable strap to connect the mini ankle stabilizer to the lower and upper frames, engaging the entire ankle protection system for dynamic joint stabilization.

Welcome to adaptive sports technology

Micro ankle stabilizer

Supercharged by the BG POWER ankle stabilizer, The BetterGuard enables natural freedom of movement that gives you all the mobility you need. Its iconic minimalist design lives up to your expectations of being ultra-lightweight and comfortable.
