|Kevlar shorts||Old Guy|

|So back in the 80s I had a bad crash once where I ground my hip down almost to the bone.
Yesterday a guy crashed right in front of me in the Lighthouse Crit and DID grind his hip down to the bone. Really disgusting. I recall several years ago someone was selling shorts with kevlar inserts in the hips.
Does anyone know if these are still made? Who? Where? etc, etc...
ps: Critters: don't forget to shave your forearms.

|Somebody does make them, I think they market them under the name 'crash pads'; my dad has a pair for inline skating.|

|Thanks for the tip.
The site is www.crash-pads.com and they have a lot of different products. Their Mt. Bike short comes closest to what I want but it's definitely overkill. I'm looking for something that mostly protects the top of the femur and uses slightly thinner padding.
I'll keep searching...

|Pearl Izumi made the kevlar shorts. They were the Keirin model. These were the REAL Japanese Pearls, not the POS that Phinney is schlepping off as Pearl.|| |
