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.

Things to note:

Some of have been re-stitched so if you look very closely you may see a faint line where the previous stitching was. This will not change the look or function of the shorts when you are wearing them.

The Joyfall logo on the left leg may start to peel away – this is due to the application method, which we have since changed.

Due to the reasons above we have decided to keep the cost of Joyfall shorts the same for this first batch, despite increases in Labour and material cost that mean the price will rise in the future. We will do our upmost to keep this price increase low, to ensure that Joyfall affordable for as many people as possible.



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 sizers.

We welcome your feedback:

So much work has been put into making Joyfall shorts amazing, however nothing is ever perfect. It is central to our philosophy as a company that will never stop aiming to develop and improve our products so that they can serve skaters better.

  1. Cuca Couto

    Absolutely love my Joyfalls. It’s been 3 weeks since I received my shorts so had the chance to skate (and fall) a few times in these. They are super slim, effective, cute and they protect me in the right areas. I also have other padded shorts (triple eight and a core) and don’t protect me as much as my Joyfall (plus they are so bulky). Delivery was ok (about a week) and customer service was great as I had so many questions before buying. About sizing, I am a size 12 in clothes (74cm waist and 101cm hips) I bought size medium that fits me a bit loose so I ended up buying also a size S which I think fits me better.
    Totally recommend these shorts, it’s money we’ll spent!

    I really love the Joyful 3″ shorts. They really save your bum and they are almost invisible beneath other pants. I feel really good and secure with them! The material looks really good an the shorts are even fashionable so you don’t need to hide them!
