More info about Triple 8 Pads
Triple Eight skateboard and longboard pads have emerged as a leader in the skateboard protective gear area. In addition, Triple Eight has extended that wide selection and high quality gear into the longboarding discipline, too.
- One of Triple Eight more popular pieces of protective gear is the Triple 8 Bumsavers padded shorts. Two style of the Bumsavers are the "traditional" skateboard/snowboard padded shorts that hit mid—to-low thigh. A second version is the roller derby padded short that’s cut a little shorter and has pads placed specifically to protect against the bumps and bruises of roller derby.
- Triple 8's Roller Derby Bumsavers padded shorts offer great protection and fit at a great price and feature contoured, half-inch foam pads designed to protect your hips, thighs, buttocks, and tailbone. A hard fall on the wrong spot can do more than give your ego; it can bruise your tailbone or strain a tendon or ligament. Triple 8 Bumsaver shorts 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.
