Ass Armor To Protect The Butt Draggers

Ass Armor

Ever tried to snowboard and spent more time on your backside than actually on top of the board? Even seasoned riders biff from time to time and butt plant into the hard pack snow or worse yet—ice. Well now there is no need to crawl away in humiliation and pain, as the Ass Armor compression short takes the hit for you.

Ass Armor is a low profile compression short featuring D3O impact-absorbing technology that supposedly performs 67% better and is 40% thinner than traditional foam-based materials. The bespoke D3O smart impact protection is made from 6mm of a pre-curved composite material, D3O XT, composed of polymers and dilatant fluid (becomes thicker when pressure is applied). It is temperature stable and offers high performance impact protection. While an additional thin layer of comfort padding further eases shock at your coccyx, the flexible tough shell is puncture resistant.

Ass Armor is the brainchild of Casey Scherr who bruised her tailbone after a day of riding in Aspen. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, Scherr partnered with U.K.-based D3O, the industry experts in impact-absorption, to come up with a solution to protect your tailbone.

Ass Armor is a unisex dry-fit stretch short. Constructed with minimal seaming to avoid any extra tightness or chafing, it has a separate elastic waistband for snug comfort. The cool-handed fabrication is designed to wick away moisture and maintain a breathable feeling under layers of gear.

Key to note, Ass Armor is comfortable enough to wear for hours and doesn’t alter your figure in a pair of snowboarding pants. If anything, just remember—it’s “All About That Bass.”

Scherr believes that hardcore tailbone protection should be a staple in everyone’s snowboarding kit, whether you’re just learning to ride, or are more advanced and want to go big on the mountain or in the park. Ass Armor compression shorts retail for $89.99 are available from the company website.

Wonder if this will work for those learning to ice skate or even for scary winter sledding.
