Aftercare having reconstructive surgery on my wrist I was forced to wear a brace for any type of sport. I actually have the do joy carbon fiber brace listed in the link above and have been pretty happy with it. It seems to do its job without getting in the way or being too noticeable. The only issue I have is the front strap doesn't always stay tight. So, I run a piece of athletic tape across the top of the strap and through my hand to keep it tight. I would say the brace works better than the other things I've tried, but can be a bit pricey. Also, make sure to get a carbon fiber brace, the plastic ones allow your wrist to flex and extend beyond the limits of the brace or limiting insert.

The brace in the link above looks all most like my Cti wrist brace.  Cant tell much difference between them.

Broke my right wrist too. Going 30 on gravel and lost my front end. 8 weeks in a cast. Just have good insurance, and don't ride the first week after you get your cast off. Look up stretching techniques because your wrist is going to be STIFF.
