    raceface, lizard skins users please help

    Hi

    As mentioned above, i've got my pick narrowed down to these two items (knee/shin guards):

    Race face rally FR
    Lizard skins softcell combo

    Being a tall rider it's crucial to have as much shin coverage as possible.

    That's why i would kindly ask anyone using these in size XL (lizards L/XL) if they coul measure the total length of the guards (and possibly the knee and the shin part seperately).

    Thanks in advance.

    i have the orginal Lizardskins for a lonnnnnnng time...they have held up really well. I use to use them a lot when i first started, however they have been sitting in my bag for the past 3 years or so. I bought them in 02. They are machine washable which is a huge plus.

    I'm tall as well. It seems that everything that fits me in length needs altered because they're way too loose. And I'm in no way skinny(6'3"/220). But I inherited a sewing machine, so no more taylor charges.

    Hi Georgeslo - here's the numbers on the Lizard Skins knee/shin combo, in L/XL.... Total length, top to bottom, is 21.5 inches. The hard shell shin guard itself is 11.0 inches tall. The top of the shin guard begins around 3.5 inches below knee cap center. If you want any other dimensions, give us a call. Thanks!
