Interactive Grip Guide - Gender
The first decision is whether you're looking for gloves for female or male disciplines.
Female gymnasts use "Uneven Bar Guards". The "Uneven Bars" are also referred to as "A Bars" and "Guards" are also known as "Handguards", "Grips" and "Gloves".
Male gymnasts perform on "Rings" and "Bars" and require different handguards (also known as guards, grips or gloves) for each apparatus.
When first starting out, all gymnasts (male and female) may use "Palm Guards", which can be used across all apparatus.
