Burton Total Impact Shorts for Men: What's d3o?

What separates Burton Total Impact Padded Shorts from the competition are the five individual d3o pads located on the hips, the tailbone, and both buttocks. What is d3o? It is a compound made of advanced "smart" molecules that are soft and pliable until they suffer impact. Then, the d3o compound stiffens dramatically to absorb much more of the blunt force than standard athletic foam padding. Whether you ski or snowboard, these (Burton) RED Total Impact Padded Shorts with their five d3o pads offer greater protection during a wipe out on the slopes than standard padded shorts.

Burton Protective Gear

Long before anybody wore ski helmets, Jake Burton Carpenter was working hard to translate the obscure concept of the surfer into something much more spectacular – something that would go much faster, something sturdy enough to carry an agile rider the entire way down any ski slope, something that could even be employed by the most accomplished riders to get them through the densest glades and the most remote back country. Carpenter’s creation, of course, was the snowboard. The year was 1978, but it would be another four years before any ski resort would let snowboarders use this device on the slopes alongside skiers. Over the years, as Carpenter watched snowboarders pull more and more complicated tricks all over the mountain and all over the half-pipe, he realized that helmets, to that point worn only by competitive alpine racers, should really become a mandatory piece of equipment, as elemental as the snowboard itself. If snowboarding was to be viewed as a responsible recreational activity in the eyes of its critics, then boarders should really begin by wearing protection on their heads when they threw those evermore jaw-dropping anti-gravity moves. In 1996, Burton launched RED, its protective gear division with the design and production of its now-ubiquitous helmets. Later it added protective apparel for the upper and lower body. Today, Burton offers it's line of helmets under the Anon name, and Impact Shorts, Wrist Guards, and other protective gear under the Burton name. Whatever, it's still some of the most popular and protective items available for the mountain.
