    knee/shin pad sizing

    hey guys, i was somewhere in between a manual and a wheelie at 20 mph and came off hard...tore up one leg real bad that i couldn't ride for 6 days..

    need to get some knee/shin pads...never had any before, so i don't know what size to look at...we don't have good lbs's in this town...so i can't try any on...only 3 dudes ride here, just XC

    i'm 5 foot 7 inches..should i be looking at mediums or large...or small...i don't know

    any advice appreciated...thanks

    I'm ~5' 7" also...

    I tried on a pair of dianese larges today that were just a hair too long, I'd need to probably go with a medium, but I want to try them on first. That said, my legs are a little short (between a 29 and 30" inseem)

    Another 5'7" you need to try them on, they run in unusual sizing. I like the EVS you can find them at most moto shops.
