    Took some measurements... and of course I am right in the middle.... as usual.

    7" Proximal to knee center = 18"
    6 3/4" DIstal to knee center = 14 1/2" (this measurement is at calf apex)

    I think it would fit in the XL knee guard range (top=18 bottom = 15"). So my calf is to small for the XL, but my Thigh = correct circumference. I have never really considered myself an XL... 6'2" @ 175 lbs.... Large at the most.

    I am really out of sorts about the size... Gunna try callin again tomorrow.

    661 Kyle Strait Sizing?

    I am looking into getting a pair of six six one Kyle Strait Knee guards, but I have run into a road block with the sizing.

    The six six one's website sizing chart states, "Elbow & Knee Pads: Measure around your arm or leg where top & bottom of pad ends. **Length of knee/shin guards is from center of knee to the bottom"

    The only problem is that I cannot find any literature telling me the length from 'Center Knee to Bottom of Opening' for the Kyle Strait knee guard. I have tried calling them toll free number the past two days. No answer from extension.

    Can anyone help? If you have a pair of Kyle Straits Do you mind taking a measurement from the center of the knee cap to Distal & Proximal openings?

    Thanks so Much!

    just about, i wear mine on the higher side, i find the pad flexes with your knee more naturally in the pedaling motion.

    ^umm, what year? on my 11's they are stretchy.

    also, it is like a sleve, you pull the whole pad on up your leg then strap it tight.

    is the closure a 'wrap around' or a 'pull up' style? Is it a stretchy material?

    Bottom is a wrap around. Top wraps around, but is pull style if I am understanding you correctly.

    Straps are not stretchy, but everything else is.

    *Edit... Straps are stretchy.

    i purchased the pads over the weekend and i was surprised how soft the pads were. i was expecting hard plastic for protection where the knee is but it feels like stiff cardboard instead. i guess they made it this way for comfortable movement?

    ... and if we just ...

    The 661 Straits are some of the most iconic pads in the industry. I think over the years they have improved the design and fit. I find them to fit very true to what you would expect.

    Still no luck contacting Six Six One. Kinda ridiculous customer service... it almost turns me off from purchasing these, but all of the reviews for the Kyle Straits have convinced me otherwise. I am going to try ordering the XL.

    So my Kyle Straits ended up coming in today. They seem to fit pretty well (XL). I do notice some gapping under the Thigh Opening when I am sitting down. Does this gapping happen to anyone else?

    I haven't been able to ride in them yet. I wanted to get some opinions before they get dirty.

    Several Pics. Some with them strapped, some without.
    (sry about the white legs!)







    Thanks!
