    Knee & Shin Guards for skinny legs

    I'm looking at picking up some Knee and shin guards for riding. I have crap around me so no real way to check anything out in person.

    What would you recommend for a knee/shin guard for riding? I'm looking for something that is going to protect from pedals, falling, etc. Like to keep it under $100, the less money the better, but I want something quality.

    My legs are pretty damn thin and long so sizing is confusing to me.

    Thinking these should be good, especially for the price. What size though?

    I'm basically in the same boat. Running 661 Veggie knees at the moment, but every time I cut up my shin I go look for some decent fitting knee+shin pads.
    Never found anything that came close to fitting me (36" inseam). Manufacturers website will probably have the measurements.

    I emailed Fox and less than an hour later had a response! Grabbing a set in L/XL and hoping they fit correctly.

    Here is the fit guide for the Fox Knee/Shin Launch Pro

    Just ordered the L/XL set from Amazon as well as a Fox shock pump. I decided to grab the Fox Launch Pro elbow guards as well as they were only $22 for them. Hopefully medium fits
