Quick question about Demon hard tail

Hey guys,

I just picked up the Demon hard tail impact shorts and have a really dumb question. Where exactly should the tailbone pad sit? If i'm wearing the impact shorts like regular shorts (sitting around the waist) the tailbone pad feels too low (i.e. the pad starts just above my rear end and ends half way down my butt -- feels like i'm walking around with a load). The only way i can get the pad high enough (to where i think it should sit) is to pull them up to my belly button which is just super uncomfortable.

Dumb qustion I know but id rather ask it then wear it wrong and get hurt.

Cheers!
Rocky

It should feel like you have a load in your pants, in my opinion. If you are going to hit hard enough to hurt your tailbone, then the most likely way is a hard landing/impact on the lower half of your butt.

It is possible to hit it in other ways, but you would have to be somewhat inverted or completely horizontal/sideways for an impact above that area to hurt the tailbone.

In the end, no one knows how the shorts fit on you... so you'll have to make your own call on what you think is correct.
