Properly measuring for elbow pads

Well-fitting skateboard elbow pads should not restrict your range of motion, which is why it is important to purchase the right size elbow pads. Elbow pads that are too tight will be uncomfortable and will limit your ability to bend your arm. To ensure that you get the perfect elbow pads, follow the stops below to properly measure your arms:

1. Wrap a soft tape measure around the center of your elbow. Measure around your outstretched arm, either at the middle of your elbow (C), at the top (A) or at the bottom of your arm where the pad will rest (B).

(Check our product images for an accurate measurement and how to measure for the specific pads)

2. If you do not have a flexible tape measure, try marking a string and measuring it against a ruler.
