Default Not tailbone, ass cheek

I usually go down on one butt cheek and end up in some discomfort. The red impact shorts I have (only protection I use) are not doing the trick. What impact shorts provide better protection for the cheek areas as opposed to tailbone?

Hillbilly or Skeletools

I have both. The hillbilly are lighter and move a little better, the Skeletools are better protection. You can double up the pads on the Skeletools if you need/want to as well.

Get a tail saver pad.
Just hook it on to the back of your pants.
Gives coverage of the cheeks as well as the tailbone.

The Skeletools offer the best protection I've seen, but I like the ProTec the best.

I had the ProTecs and wore them often, but after I blew them out, I went with the Skeletools for better protection but they're so damn bulky I almost never wear them. Just food for thought.

That. Don't have experience with Skeletools, but Hillbilly is good. Have Hillbilly Buttpadz that I've used for a couple of seasons and like. More recently, I got some RED Impacts, the D3O kind, and used them about 3-4 times. I'm going back to my Hillbillys come this winter. As good tailbone protection and better, more "linear" cushioning in the hip and cheek area than the REDs.

I have Azzpadz and Skeletools w/double pads ( I bought an extra set of pads when I ordered them)

You specifically asked for "cheek" protection so recommend the Skeletools especially if you double up the pads. I uses these on days I'm trying new tricks and expect to be hitting the ground more than normal.

On days I'm not learning or just riding groomers or jumps I prefer Azzpadz.
I used to have pics comparing them try searching my threads. Might have cleaned up the server and deleted the pics, not sure....

I didn't know they made them. Do you know who makes them and where I can pick up a few?

This is where I got them. Says they're out of stock right now. I'd call and ask if they are getting more in. I got the large size (I'm 5'11') and it covers most of my backside, not just the tailbone.
I actually ordered the small afterward because I found the large was TOO large for my liking. You may wish to order one of each size for that reason.
