Through years of development Push Culture has created the ultimate shorts for downhill skateboarding.
Designed for maximum durability, mobility and road rash prevention. Key areas are reinforced with Cordura, a fabric which is even more durable to abrasion than kevlar, and the design itself eliminates seams in the most vulnerable places. While most skaters purchase, destroy, and throw away pair after pair of normal pants, a single pair of PC crash pants are often worn for an entire season or more, eliminating waste into the environment and saving you money (and skin)
The Mobility Maximizing Inseam is a four way stretch fabric that allows for a range of motion not otherwise found with such a strong and durable product.
Many customers combine G-Form shorts and knee pads for the ultimate combination of durability and protection, as the shorts themselves are not padded. If you wear impact shorts you will want to consider this in choosing a size.
- Made in LA
-Built in drawstring
-Interlocked side seam
-Mobility Maximizing Inseam
-Cordura reinforcements at thighs and seat.
-Half moon pocket design eliminates vulnerable seams on the seat.
-Second button keeps main button (and your pants) on during impacts.
-Exposed cordura pocket facing prevents immediate wear from grip tape while carrying board.
-Fit- See below
When picking your size consider this.
In the below photo I am wearing a well worn (stretched out) pair of pants, However, when they were brand new they sat tighter and higher on my hips than how they appear in the photo. These pants in the photo are a size 34, this is the correct place to measure your pant size. My waist measures 33-34" and I wear a size 34 crash pants. When they come out of the dryer they are a tight fit, after a 3 day skate trip wearing them every day the are much baggier and sagging.
A waist size 28 has a 31" inseam, a waist size 30 has a 32" inseam, waist 32 = 33" inseam, waist 34 = 34" inseam, 36 = 35", 38 = 36"
Hot temperature makes fabric shrink, Dying fabric requires very hot water. The Khaki, Green, Maroon, and Black have been garment dyed, which means pre-shrunk! When you unpack them and try them on they will be the smallest they will ever be, However they will stretch out immediately. Literally after wearing them a few hours they feel looser and after a day or two they feel a full size larger. When you try them on the first time and they feel too tight don't just return them, know they will stretch out. The most comfortable and well sized pants are purchased tight because the nature of fabric stretching dictates that. However if you can't even close the button, you do need a bigger size.
The Denim pants are the opposite, they are not dyed and therefor not pre-shrunk so they will shrink a little like a normal pair of jeans.
Rest Assured that PC Apparel is truly a skater run business, I, Travis Davenport, am a part of and sincerely care about the skate family. I will be understanding about exchanges, I know these pants are an investment for you. Fit is paramount to optimal function, When you crash in baggy pants the reinforced panels do not stay where they were designed to be. Think about a leather racing suit - it is skin tight for a reason! Being patient with the tighter pair instead of exchanging right away for the bigger size will result in less road rash!
You can't return pants after crashes or days of dirty wear, but please feel free to keep them on for a while and see how they form to your body. If you still need an exchange we'll be happy to do that!
Common Sense - Skating with phones, keys and other hard objects in pockets will cause rapid wear from grip tape and pavement. When you start a session, empty your pockets! While these are designed with skating in mind, no refunds or exchanges will be made for gear that is damaged from doing so (just like your skateboard), they were not designed to be wear proof and there is no guarantee against crashes resulting in holes. They are designed with reinforcement so that crashes resulting in holes wont imediatly get down to your skin, but with certain variables like speed, weight, type of crash and what you crash on, theres just nothing you can do about it, that's life. Anything determined to be a manufacturer defect will be addressed differently.
