    Straps were not long enough. I'm 6'1" and 210 pounds (was 230-240 last year). Big calfs. The middle two wouldn't reach without nearly cutting off circulation. Had a friend's mom sew some extra Velcro on and now it's all good. LOVE the pads btw.

    straps are the same length for both large and X-large. Sorry, bad news.

    Big calf here as well (40cm/15,8" around) , wouldnt mind if the straps on my XL were a little longer , they overlap about halfway on the +/- velcro so half of the velcro hooks up on the elastic strap , all is good though , they stay in place during big spills.
    However I just tried a friends Rally DH pads in a size L and straps/mesh were perfect for my calfes , go figure.
    I getting a set of DHs , they also seemed cooler , more airflow between leg/pad due to moleded airchannels.
    Cheers

    Thank You....

    Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll try adding alittle velcro to the straps. No sense in going to the X-Large.

    Sorry for the double post. The other post was so far down in the thread , I didn't think anyone would get to it.
