Having something grab your front brake or clutch while you are riding will throw you off.
Riding a trail on a Trials bike would be fine to use the hand guards, my thoughts were mainly pointed towards Trials riding itself.. Dropping off ledges or attempting to clear larger logs could see a journey over the handle bars (damhik ) ending in broken bones.. I use hand guards on my Super Enduro so i`m not totally against the use of them, just know how easy it is to come unstuck when you`re pushing your skills to the limit..

My 10 year old. First time with a clutch, and first time on a trials bike. We bought him a GasGas 200, and lowered it down a smidge, as well as cut the bars back a tad. After about an hour he was jumping logs..

In the second video, taken from the video "Revolution" featuring the 1998 Norba National series, the part featuring J starts at about 5:10, first with footage from the Park City, Utah round, and then the last part is devoted to him... He was just 16 at the time, and in the process of winning his 3 and 4th Pro Men's titles.

OK, I guess I'm done bragging up my kid now.....
