I'm considering to buy the G-form Elite knee & elbow protectors, but need help to pick the correct size. They have size chart which gives the sizes I've listed below. I've also read some reviews and comments that going one size up can be good too. I don't want it to be to tight, but at the same time I don't want it to slide up/down. I'm going to use them while riding EUC and not while biking (so most of the cases standing with knees bent a little bit).

I recently got a Segway MiniPro, and the wife and I love it, but the knee bar is a tad high for my tastes at the lowest setting.

I have put together a range of protective clothing in cooperation with some Australian partners that I will ship from Australia. Australia has been a leader in crash protection for a long time, haha we needed it. For road/concrete surfaces you will completely kit yourself out for about USD 600.00 (dirt protective clothing is a little cheaper) (Helmet, gloves, boots, Kevlar pants, Kevlar jacket (even have a hoody that looks normal even
