I think the designers use roadies to come up with sizing for these elbow guards... who has puny arms like this? The S/M feel very small. With some effort, they'll go on but they feel like they would cut off the circulation to your hands. Since they are one piece construction (foam) with a couple hard plastic pieces sewn on, they do not bend freely. Your arms have to be bent for them to feel normal. When you straighten out your arms, a crease on the inside is created and it digs into the back of your arm. The thing I hate the most is the fishnet mesh on the inside. When you take these off after a ride, it'll leave a nice lizard pattern on the inside of your arms... it's just another reminder (even when you don't have them on) of how bad they really suck. You can buy Cheapo elbow pads from a dirt bike shop for $25 and they will work better. So far, I'm unimpressed with Alpinestars mtn bike gear. Good looks but they work like crap.
