Every snowboarder knows the feeling in your tailbone when you fall backwards, not nice, especially when you're sitting on a bar stool at the end of the day. Snowboard impact shorts are designed to prevent you from bruising your tailbone, or worse, breaking it. These crash pants make falling while learning new tricks on the rail, or a slide on an ice shelf a lot more comfortable. As a beginner, this is the first protection you should buy, together with wrist guards. Demon snowboard impact shorts are available from € 59,95.
