Looking into getting some compression shorts with some guards on the hip area because today I tried to 270 on to a wider flat rail caught My front edge and just slammed straight to my hip on the rail. This is the second time I've done it and I just hate hurting my hip/quad area that bad because it hurts like a bitch and worst of all it takes like a week or so to heal and if you fall on it again which is pretty common, you fuck it up even more. So to avoid this problem all together I'm looking in to getting some hip protectors, anyone else wear these?
I have dynese. Couldn't be happier with them. Saved me so many times. Best thing is it have plastic hip guards so if you slam your hip on icy landing you don't get blue baloon bruse. Definitely recomend using hip pad
I have a RED pair of D3O ones that are flexible and comfy until they're impacted, and the material tenses up. A bit pricey but they've definitely extended a couple of my park days. They give you a little confidence boost too knowing that you're safe.
