Tortoise Pads are shorts combined with protective butt pads and protective hip pads. Wear them underneath your regular pants to help cushion your falls. Made of lightweight yet dense foam, these shorts give the wearer more mobility without sacrificing protection or comfort. The foam is a high impact EVA product designed for maximum force absorption. ****** MULTIPLE LAYERS OF PROTECTION: Our T2 impact protection shorts contain a uniquely engineered dual density high impact EVA foam configuration which gives greater protection while minimizing foam thickness. The denser outer layer of foam dissipates and absorbs more of the impact's energy. The softer inner layers provide cushioning as well as additional protection between you and the ground. The combination of the two results in a pad that will take a bigger impact and will help reduce the number of injuries you will suffer when you fall. ****** ERGONOMIC MOBILITY AND COMFORT: We have engineered and crafted our impact protection shorts with the perfect spacing to allow for a complete range of motion. The design minimizes the gaps between pads while providing maximum coverage. All seven pads are self-forming. This produces a contoured fit that keeps the pads right where you need them to be, while maintaining the cushioning you need to protect yourself. ****** SELF FORMING PADS: Our multiple layer design and durable spandex pockets allow even our firmest foam to constantly reshape, creating pads that move the way you do. ****** BREATHABLE MESH SHORTS WITH EXTRA TOUGH POCKETS: Tortoise Pads impact protection shorts are made from a durable spandex power mesh fabric with tear resistant spandex pockets. The mesh fabric provides great breathability while the super tough spandex pockets help to minimize the wear and tear that the shorts are exposed to during constant usage.
