fox knee pad sizing

Postby thecube123 » Sun Dec 02, 2012 22:02 pm

Hi, i want to get some fox launch pro knee and elbow pads but i dont know if they will fit as i think i am below the minimum leg and arm measurements. Does any have any advice on fit please?
My measurements are:
.center of knee - 37cm

My opinion based on two pairs of Launch Pros is that the L/XL would fit the majority of the adult male population the range of adjustment is huge. I'm a burly 6'2" with thighs like tugboats and they are a great fit

The S/M are noticeably smaller, aimed more at ladies and youths

There's a sizing chart here: http://www.allsportprotection.com/Fox_L ... ox0016.htm (scroll down a bit)
and here: http://www.competitivecyclist.com/produ ... HNR_CC0002

The sizing for the L/XL is spot-on.

Fox's measurement for the top opening is 20 cm above the knee I think you would be fine with S/M but bear in mind they do slacken off with wear as the neoprene and the elastic in the straps stretches.

You're a bit smaller than me and I have s/m knee pads which fit perfectly and medium elbow pads which are too big. Get s/m knee and small elbow
