187 Fly Elbow Pads
187 makes skateboard Pro Knee and Elbow pads for skateboarders and longboarders that are constantly pushing their limits. Whether you are bombing hills, sliding, freeriding, skating ditches, or riding vert ramps, rest assured 187 pads will endure your demands. The family-run company constantly seeks the best materials in the production of their pads. These high quality, long lasting materials make 187 pads the most comfortable, flexible, and durable pad in the industry. The serious amount of velco on these pads means you can rest assured that your pads will stay in place when you slam. Progression only comes when you're feeling confident, which is exactly what these solid feeling pads provide. Each pad is sewn so that the threads are not exposed to the elements; no more making your mom break out the sewing machine. Therefore, your pads will last longer than competing brands. The 187 pads are worn and tested by the owner of the company so be assured the no corners are being cut.
PLEASE READ THROUGH THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE PURCHASING PROTECTIVE GEAR.
The following sizes are just a guide. All Fly Elbow Pads are slip-on and feature two velcro support straps. If you wear large knee pads you probably wear large elbow pads.
To determine your size, measure around the center of your elbow (right around the bend). If you've got "larger" arms 'cause you're a bodybuilder of some sort (or you're planning on wearing the elbow pads over a shirt — NOT recommended) and you're pushing the upper limit of a size, you may wish to move up one size. The pads DO STRETCH and they will BREAK IN over time. They may be snug right off the bat, but that's much better than them being too loose! If they're loose, they'll fall off when you bail. You don't want that to happen. Not a pretty sight. Anywho, here are the measurements taken directly from The 187 Website (187killerpads.com)
Due to the nature of sizing pads in general and the disposition/preferences of the rider, there may be some disagreement with the numbers listed here. That being said, we will not accept returns on protective gear (kneepads, helmets, gloves, or elbow pads) that has been "used". If you're going to test them out to see if they fit and move properly, please do so on CARPET and NOT on concrete, wood, plastic, metal, trees, rocks, griptape, sand paper, or anything else that may scratch the protective gear. You don't want to receive scratched goods, so why would anyone else?!

Great product, excellent customer serviceBy Jeff on 2021-07-20 Verified Purchase
I initially ordered the wrong size and Muirskate provided excellent customer service while making an exchange. These seem to be quality pads and I’m looking forward to keeping my elbows protected when skating.

Fit well, have not lost my shwifty with them yet, but Ill bet I get lest hurt.
Perfect fit!By Isaac Camacho-Medina on 2020-06-04 Verified Purchase
Just follow their size chart and you’ll be good. They feel a bit tight at first but will loosen up a bit after using them. Definitely feels secure and doesn’t feel like I’m carrying extra weight.
Good As ExpectedBy Justin Rose on 2016-08-16
I got the Fly Knee and was just amazed at how comfortable they were for something that offers a fairly solid amount of protection. I took a spill in June of 2016 and knocked about a quarter inch deep of flesh out of my elbow and it only takes one spill to convince you to make sure that doesn't happen again. Another five stars from me, 187 Pads!
Really adds to my confidence.By Jeremy N on 2015-09-28 Verified Purchase
I feel so much safer wearing these now. I now have the confidence to get some more speed and work on my downhill skills.
