Finally!!…A set of stunt pads that won’t make me look like Frankenstein… Being a bigger guy, even the slimmest motorcross, bmx, or snowboard pads still make me look like a freak.
I heard about Xion PG and because I’m a stuntdouble for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, they offered me a full set of protection to review.
They fit so well you can’t even tell I’m wearing them even with the tight spandex wardrobe I’m wearing for the movie Fast and Furious 6.
Wore the Xion protection, only to come off of a car and didn’t feel a thing. They are so comfortable I forgot I had them on by the end of the day. With this protection you can downsize your huge ass stunt pad bag to a backpack.
Thanks XION -Tanoai Reed
