back to the 2010 - 2011 Snowboard Season.
your snowboarding for the first time, attempting a new trick or trying
to step up your riding to the next level, injury prevention must be taken
seriously. Unfortunately, there is always a painful price to pay everytime
you catch your back side edge, miss a landing and smash your tailbone,buttocks,hips and more.
in 1997, I was racing Boardercross™ at Blackcomb Mountain and had
the unfortunate experience of missing a landing and kissing a patch of
ice. I fell hard on my butt and fractured my tailbone wearing a competitors snowboard protection, which was thin and flimsy. I was out of action
for months, not to mention the remainder of that season.
my rehabilitation, I researched protective tailbone and hip protection
that would withstand heavy impact. There were none (and still none) that incorporated molded
1/2" high impact foam for both the tailbone and hipbone areas that did not have gaps between the pads. Just well designed ergonmic crush
lines for unmatched protection. None until two years later after countless
painstaking hours at the boardroom before the final performance engineered
piece was completed.
want ANYONE to go through the pain that I went through....Not only the
physical pain, but the pain of not being able to enjoy my favorite sport.

Some other Snowboard Protection

back protection, Tucker kidney and rib Protection, knee supports, and possibly an ankle brace if prior damage
has occured. There are many great products available on the market right
now that will guard against wrist, head and leg injuries....but what about
your hips,buttocks and tailbone??
There is other Snowboard Protection out there that offer tailbone and hip protection but do they
completely cover your tailbone ,buttocks and hips? Do they give technical
details regarding their protection and are they comfortable? Are they
breathable. Do their fabrics retain moisture? That's when Tucker Sports
Products decided to manufacture Butt Gear Protection. Butt Gear would
have definitely protected me from the fall that I had back in 1997.

I just came back from my ski trip to Bogus Basin ID. The conditions
were packed and icy (it snowed the last two days I was there, but
only a couple of inches). The Butt Gear really helped! Even though
I was better balanced this year, the ice made carving a little hard
and the "death cookies" under the power made non-groomed runs nearly
impossible for me. So I took a few falls.... I came back home with
no lower end damage with the help of Butt Gear!"

snow while waiting for a friend or riding a lift without freezing your
butt off. Photographers and instructors take note that Butt Gear can act
as a warm seat cushion too! Our unique ergonomic design is breathable
and water proof so you can enjoy your day on the slopes without worrying
about a cold wet back side. Butt Gear
makes Snowboarding More Fun.
so much for saving my ass! I used the Butt Gear for a couple of
days in Colorado and it saved not only my booty, but also my arms,
since I was no longer trying to stop skidding downhill. I was amazed
that the velcro held, too. Great productl!"

You are the MAN! The Butt Gear saved me BIG TIME! Saturday was my

Caught my back edge a couple of times and WHAM! The Butt Gear prevented
any injury to the precious backside as you said it would. I am incredibly
