Sette Impact Padded Shorts

Mountain Biking Products

Last month we featured the Sette Impact Protective Suit.  Along with the suit, we received the Sette Impact Padded Under Shorts.  “Under shorts” meaning you would wear these under your moto style, baggy cycling or just plain shorts.  These are specific for downhill with pad placement or areas such as your tailbone, hips and thighs.  It does not come with a chamois.

The Sette Protective Gear line is quite impressive. They have protective gear for all the areas where a full-body pressure suit would cover. The quality of their products is up to par with similar items found in the market. You certainly will get the bang for you buck! These are available at from $29.98 – $34.98 (depending on size). You can also save by buying two for $59.98.

For the rest of the 2008 season, I’ll be putting this pair to the test. Hopefully I will not I will not have to find out how good they work or how much impact it can absorb.

  1. Those shorts, combined with the protective suit, would make a GREAT Star Wars Halloween costume — an Imperial Tie-fighter pilot. All you’d need was the helmet!

  2. Joe um…is that a ….in your shorts or are you just happy? JK!

    By the way, is it bulky? Does it make your butt look big? Can you move?

  3. RL – LOL not bulky at all. I should have taken a shot sideways.

    No I dont feel restricted at all, the shorts are pretty comfy.

    Ghost Rider – Good idea! Either that or a character from Dodge Ball 🙂

  4. HA HA Purple Cobras!

    Hey guys, any idea why no chamois on these shorts? I know these are for DH or FR rather than trail riding but I would like to see a padded version with chamois for aggressive XC or hard trail riding for an extra layer of protection. What you guys think?

  5. Not a bad idea. These are not bulky but maybe too bulky for XC and the constant pedaling. They have shorts out there for XC that are thick enough where they provide ample protection for the aggressive riders.
