What makes Crash Pads padded shorts and Crash Pads body armor so comfortable?

Crash Pads makes a range of protective gear, from snowboard pants and padded shorts to roller derby shorts to padded bike shorts to body armor. The company takes great pains to design specific products for the needs of specific sports. Although many Crash Pads padded shorts or Crash Pads body armor can and do cross over several sports, Crash Pads recognizes that each sport has specific needs relating to the shape of the body, the area of the body most vulnerable in a certain sport, and the type of movement being performed during the activity. For that reason, you’ll find that the pads on the Crash Pads 2700 roller derby padded shorts are placed a little differently than those on the Crash Pads 1300 bicycle padded shorts: Derby players have different safety needs than mountain bikers or BMXers. All Crash Pads protective gear have some features in common, including:
  • Non-restrictive, non-plastic design
  • Abrasion- and impact-resistant padding provides outerwear durability
  • Half-inch inch thick thermal formed, scored, flame-bonded, high-density foam
  • Technical moisture management fabric

About Crash Pads

Crash Pads is dedicated to making protective gear that is flexible and lightweight, but won’t restrict any of your athletic mobility. As a company, Crash Pads is the quintessential small business success story. Back in 1992 in the beautiful river town of Astoria, Oregon, a woman teaching herself to inline skate got tired of the bruises she suffered every time she wiped out. For her own self-preservation, she began to stitch foam pads into her clothing. Through trial and error, her designs became increasingly more sophisticated. Thus was born Crash Pads, one of the very first manufacturers of body armor in the United States. More than two decades later, every piece of protective gear the company designs is still manufactured in the United States (though no longer at this enterprising woman’s kitchen table).
