*Under Skate Tongue Measurement:
Sitting at a 90-degree angle with skates on your feet, measure from the center of your kneecap to the center of the outer ankle. Correspond this measurement with the Under Skate Tongue column below. This style provides a lighter, lower-profile, and snug fit suited for quick, agile players.
*Over Skate Tongue Measurement:
Simply add 1" to the Under Skate Tongue Measurement from above. Correspond this measurement with the Over Skate Tongue column below. This offers more coverage and a bulkier profile, better suited for defensemen and shot-blocking forwards.
Ensure that the knee sits directly in the center of the padded knee cup. This will ensure the knee pads align correctly with the knee cap.
If the shin pad is too small, the strapping may restrict circulation and also leave exposed areas to slashes and other impacts. If the shin pad is too large, protection will be compromised by the shin pad moving up and down, or rotating away from the knee cap and shin.
