Send it to the moon.
Boosting out of the pipe and trying to grab a piece of that lunar green cheese is super fun, until you slam your butt down on the lip and feel the shock reverberating throughout your whole body. Burton designed the Luna Women's Short with G-Form padding over the tailbone to take some of the sting out of butt-first falls. G-Form is soft and flexible until impact, at which point it stiffens instantly to absorb the brunt of the fall before softening up again so you can ride. Burton made the fabric from DryRide Ultrawick, which manages moisture extremely efficiently to keep you dry and comfortable, and made the whole package machine washable, so the only stinky thing around will be that huge stalefish.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Maybe cuz I'm short? But I found the pad barely covered my butt, more lower and mid back. could easily adjust to leave my tailbone uncovered (very very likely). Will return because it doesn't really serve its purpose with the proportions of my body.
Practical Tailbone Protection
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
If you need a big rubber pad on your butt, this is a great purchase. Not too restricting but good padding that stays in place. Perfectly covers my tailbone and was exactly what I was looking for. The only regret I have is not ordering the Cat's Meow print. They also seem to run just a little small.
what's the difference between men's and women's protective gear like this? i'm just asking because i don't see men's model in stock for now.
