Introducing the Game-Changing Joyfall Shorts!


About the shorts:

Joyfall shorts are made of a high-technology material that is soft and flexible when worn but hardens and absorbs the impact energy upon impact. This allows it to be less than a 5th of the thickness of other protective shorts. The padding covers the main areas that skaters fall on, and the shorts themselves are made of a material that is thicker and more resistant to splinters than spandex, which is often used to make protective shorts. The shorts can be worn under other clothing, but are also great worn on their own!

Are the shorts you’re looking for out of stock? Pre-orders for our next batch of Joyfall shorts are open until June 1st, and you can find them here.

Care and important information:

Joyfall shorts can be washed by machine or by hand. They should be hung to dry and stored either flat or hung (not folded). Reducing the frequency with which you wash your shorts will increase their lifespan. Whilst the outer material is resistant to rips and tears, the inner lining is made of a different material. For this reason, please keep the inner material away from the Velcro on the rest of your pads.

Please be aware that repeated falling/ sliding on the shorts may lead to pilling of the fabric – if you wish to avoid this, you may consider covering them with a second layer of clothing. I personally leave mine uncovered so I can show off the cool patterns.
Please note, for shorts made with patterned fabric, each pair will look slightly different as they are not all cut from the same part of the pattern

The protective padding is designed to absorb impact and reduce injuries, but they may still occur. It is advised that all users skate responsibly and within their limits. Extreme sports carry the risk of serious injury – this is reduced but not eliminated by the use of protective gear.



XS (UK 8-10) S (UK 10-12) M (UK 12-14) L (UK 14-16) XL (UK 16-18)
WAIST 63 – 71 CM 67 – 75 CM 72 – 80 CM 77 – 85 CM 82 – 90 CM
HIPS 88 – 93 CM 93 – 101 CM 101 – 106 CM 106 – 111 CM 111 – 116 CM

You will notice that the waist measurements are broad and overlap – this is both because the shorts are made of stretch material and also have a draw-string waistband that can be tightened, allowing them to fit more sizes. When choosing your size please note – the padding must be against the body, not loose for it to work most effectively. Choosing a baggy fit is therefore not recommended.  See fit examples on real skaters here

The Shorter shorts are roughly based on a 3″ leg length and the longer shorts on a 6″ however this is not exact. The length is proportionately shorter for smaller sizes.

    Cannot recommend these shorts enough. After breaking my coccyx last November I knew I needed some good pads. Along came Joyfall. I have been eagerly awaiting the 6inch in and I just cannot explain how wonderful they are in person. From the packaging to the print, the fit and the protection. These feel high class, sturdy yet stylish and cool. Make me a baby park skater feel like a pro!

    Firstly the fit: I am a 18/20 normally. I got the XL. They fit great. A touch snug but they come up heigh enough on the snack pouch (past my belly button!). The 6inch leg is perfect for my height at 6foot, covering a comfortable amount of thigh. I did swap the waistband string out for a longer one, but that was personal preference. I have not found them to roll, slip or move around once on.

    They pass the squat test and look great as shorts, or fit seamlessly under clothes, you wouldn’t even know I had them on. They feel so unintrusive and not bulky at all.

    The protection: they are so good! I was terrified of falling on my butt/hips since my break, and these not only give me the confidence to throw myself at tricks again, but it also doesn’t hurt. The padding works! It firms up on impact but is not tough to wear, all the right places are covered and even on a bigger size, you feel well protected from impact.

    The design is so cute, so looking forward to rocking these as shorts in summer.

    Thanks Joyfall for giving me my confidence back!
