Best tailbone protection is? azzpadz?

So is it more or less a consensus that Azzpadz are the best tailbone protection? I'm not really concerned with hip or thigh pads, just tailbone protection

To those who wear the azzpadz, what size should I get? I have a 32" waist and I'm 5'11" 175lbs. I Want them to fit snug but provide full protection.

Is there any other product I should look at that uses a hard plastic shell backed by foam?

Yes, the Demon Hardtail shorts



I think they use a gel instead of a foam pad

I also have azzpadz and I own Skeletools



I switch off between both depending on what I am trying to learn. I like both as well, azzpadz are just a little more UN-comfortable on the chair.

I've been using the R.E.D. total impact shorts the last couple yrs after a tailbone injury. They've worked well so far.

If you were to say one offered more tailbone protection which would it be? Do they both have hard plastic and foam? Why do you say the asspadz are more uncomfortable? Thanks!!!

Honestly I think they are the same. Skeletools covered more of my arse with a larger pad and thinner plastic. Azzpadz covered a smaller area but had a harder plastic piece.
They both have plastic but as stated above a little different in design.

They Azzpadz aren't uncomfortable to say. They have a large plastic piece and it makes it a bit uncomfortable on the chair lift. It sometimes shifts around while on the lift. The skeletools use compression shorts that the pads slide into. I bought extra pads and depending on my day I double them up.

Either one would work great, like I mentioned before I still use both.
Everyday riding Azzpadz
New tricks Skeletools

Not sure I helped but my thoughts non-the-less.

If I get some free time I'll try to snap a few pics of the 2 for comparison reasons.
