Forcefield Slam 1 Shorts Review – Snowboard Protection Shorts
(‘A must for snowboarders’)

I was interested in reviewing the Forcefield Slam 1 Shorts as I reviewed the original Forcefield Slam Shorts last season and was mightily impressed. As a snowboarder, I appreciated that Forcefield had cut the fat, as to speak, getting rid of the excess padding that snowboarders do not need.

So what is different about the Forcefield Slam 1 shorts apart from a new royal blue colour?

Forcefield Slam 1 Shorts Review
The main difference is that they have managed to cut down on the thickness of the padding from 17mm, incredibly to only 8mm. This is still while retaining the level of protection with a CE Level 1 rating.

This makes the shorts much lighter than their predecessor and a much lower profile. I have always worn protection shorts and my main issue is that sometimes the padding is noticeable under ski trousers. This is not the case with the Forcefield Slam 1 protection shorts.

They are also very comfortable. So much so that I wouldn’t have even know that I was wearing them until I took a slam. Luckily this didn’t happen too many times, but with icy and variable conditions in Tignes, my board did slide out from underneath me when boarding at speed once, and I was very grateful for the added protection!

Although skiers would also benefit from the Forcefield Slam 1 shorts, they are definitely more ideal for snowboarders. The high energy absorbing foam, protects the lower back, coccyx, bum and thighs. If any of you have fallen on your coccyx you will know how painful that is!

The protection shorts can be used as a base layer and the fibres are made from BeCool technology. This makes it highly breathable, have great wicking properties and fast drying. In other words, it will stop you smelling like a drowned Snow Vole if you wear them for a few days on the trot!

Eventually, you will have to wash them though! This is not a problem as the padding is easily removable and you can bung them in the washing machine.

I love the Forcefield Slam 1 impact shorts. They have everything that made the original Slam shorts great for snowboarders, but made them better.

The new low profile really works and looks fantastic. As for durability, I have worn them for about 20 days on the mountain and so far so good.

A must for snowboarders! A review score of 10 out of 10 (I don’t give full marks away very often).
