Ass Pads....

Post by DamoH » Sat Feb 09, 2013 10:37 am

Took my board to a skatepark today. Spent more time on my arse than on the board! So now I've decided it's time to get some butt pads.

I'm looking for something with good coccyx protection. Been looking at Azzpadz and the Hillbilly shorts. Anyone know how good the coccyx protection is on the Hillbillys?

love my hillbillies, they have a nice semi hard plastic coccyx protector. Definitely come highly recommended.

Been going through old posts on here, and nearly everybody that owns the Hillbillys likes them. The only thing stopping me from buying them, is that I saw a couple of reviews (on Amazon I think), that said the coccyx protection wasn't great. I guess that hasn't been a problem for you?

These are what I'm currently using they have removable padding so they can be washed

Hillbillys for sure I never ride without them, wrist guards or a lid.

Looks like I'm gunna buy the hillbillys then. Any idea where you can get them in the uk? Could buy them off of Amazon.com, but not sure how much the import duty would be. Plus the courier adds handling fees too, could end up very expensive.

Nice one. Are these the ones that everyone uses on here? The ones on Amazon have different padding. Also the sizing charts are different on The hillbilly website and the atbshop site.

yeah im riding those black ones like on atbshop, think mine are medium and im pretty standard sized.

as for cocyx protection, i once slid out backwards and heard a resounding crack as the plastic shield hit a sharp rock. I was fine, shorts were fine. Probably would have been painful.

i may be wrong but the coccyx protection is just plastic no padding? im riding pro tec snowboard ass pads which have a sillicone gel in... ive gone down on that ass (scuse the pun) more times than steven stiffler, and not hurt my ass, nor coccyx since...

I used this thread when looking for pads and wanted to add to the input. I ended up with the triple eight bumsaver. I like that I could pull out the pads I didn't really need (e.g., thigh, front hips) which adds to the comfort factor. Also like that they can be washed.

The coccyx protection does have some padding, though less than other places.
The nicest thing about the hillbilly ones is that they have pads in exactly the right spots, and they're very breathable. On a hot day, take your pants down in the breeze for a minute and you'll be dry again... (did I really just say that?)
