    New question here. Knee Pads Sizing

    I looked into Kyle Strait knee pads. According the 661 sizing charts I am a medium. Tried both medium and small.

    Medium: Perfect fit, more protected area, easy to bend knees.
    Small: Little tight, less protection area, little more resistance to bending. But it still fits.

    Medium would be a no brainer. BUT, it is much easier to push down and expose the knee. The small is hard to push down.

    So what do you guys do? Use a smaller size just so it does not move in a crash, or take the risk with the size that fits best?

    Posted this in the wrong forum, should be in protection. Is there a way to move it?

    If you're set on Kyle Straits, I would go with the medium, but it sounds like youre between sizes and should probably look at different pads that fit better. Maybe you could shorten the straps on the mediums?

    I would get the mediums. A tight knee pad will become very uncomfortable with your knees bending and straightening out as you ride.
