Padded shorts to protect hip and butt

What Are Tortoise Pads?

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. Plus, these pads don’t wear out after a few weeks of use. They will last session after session and will serve you for a long time.

Tortoise Pads are constructed in a design that doesn’t add bulk to your pants the way other pads do. Plus, they provide great protection when you hit the ground. We can’t guarantee you won’t get hurt, but we can guarantee Tortoise Pads will help cushion your fall. So, which will you choose? Will you choose to do tricks without protection, or will you choose to be smart and look awesome doing it?

Padded Shorts for Action Sports

We specifically engineered our impact protection shorts for action sports and other high energy, high mobility activities. They are ideal for skateboarders, scooter riders and snowboarders. However, we have BMX riders, rollerbladers, and athletes in other sports that wear them as well. No matter what sport you compete in, you can have the confidence of knowing that Tortoise Pads are there to protect you.

Our designers are constantly thinking of new ways to accommodate the needs of other sports.  Football, ice skating, hockey, you name it – our goal is to protect everyone. Please let us know if you would like us to put your sport first on our list of new products.
