i don't wear any safety gear other than a helmet. if you take a lesson & learn how not to catch an edge, you'll be fine

I use hardtail impact shorts every time. You don't want a broken tailbone. I broke mine and it hurt for months.

It's a 20-30 dollar insurance for your butt that has served you so dutifully all these years. Do it a favor and save it from future abuse.
