Triple Eight Bumsaver Padded Shorts

Triple 8 Bumsavers padded shorts make it easier to jump back up after you land on your bum. Bumsavers are lightweight, low profile, and ready to wear under your regular pants or shorts.

Triple 8 Bumsaver Padded Shorts: Why Does My Bum Need to Be Saved in the First Place?

Triple 8 Bumsaver padded shorts feature contoured, half-inch foam pads designed to protect your hips, thighs, buttocks, and tailbone. Let’s face it, getting hurt... hurts. A hard fall on the wrong spot can do more than give you bruise or a scrape, it can bruise your tailbone or strain a tendon or ligament. Bumsavers are designed for moderate to aggressive activity, meaning that they’re a fine choice as protective gear for skateboarders, snowboarders, or inline skaters who are doing more advanced riding. While padded shorts can’t prevent all injuries, they can mitigate the effects of most falls.
