    Knee pads for 25 inch thighs!

    Hey everyone, I've been on a great search for knee pads because I can't seem to find any that fit over my knee. I was a downhill ski racer and I have huge thighs because of it (25inches around a few inches above the knee) and I would like some knee pads because I've recently had some close calls as I'm getting better at riding and I don't want to break a patela (again ). I've seen older posts that kind of say I'm out of luck but I'm hoping there are some new options for the large legged brethren. Thanks for any help!

    Check Alpinestars Paragon. According to Astars site they come in XXL. Wouldn't be surprised if they were too big. I usually wear large everything, have decent size quads... and I could easily fit into a SM. A few friends have the same issue with the fit of these...

    They go to a max of 22inches in with the Paragon, I've tried them on in the xxl and they were too tight

    I bet they wouldn't be too tight after they broke in... the upper elastic/sleeve doesn't do much to keep the pad in place from my experience. I would roll it down if I was in your situation. I also find that cuffing the lower sleeve back up over calf/under the pad does the brunt of the work keeping it in place.
