I'm not so sure. As far as I know (and I am not an expert), the only way to injure your tail bone (short of landing on a pole or a rail) is to land very hard with your midsection in a seated position (bent at the hip).<br><br>The demon shorts have padding on the butt AND on the tailbone, though only the tailbone would have had the hard plastic padding.

I think that the OP might have hurt his tailbone no matter what he was wearing.

Anything with enough padding to absorb the energy from&nbsp; an impact hard enough to bruise his tailbone through these shorts would probably be waaaaaay bulky.

I wasn't there, so its hard to say. I have crash landed pretty hard while wearing in the same Demon shorts without sustaining injury to the areas they protect.
