SixSIxOne is pushing product development to the limits to build the new Core Saver Body Armour that exceed the standards within the Mountain bike industries. Our designers incorporate the newest technology to provide quality products that excel in comfort and protection.
Key technologies for the 661 Core Saver body armour:
Power stretch fabric: Our Power Stretch fabric is a specific polyester blend that helps wick away moisture, and cool the rider with its evaporative properties. The material performs better than traditional pressure suit materials because of its moisture management capabilities.
Side zip panel: Side zip paneling allows the chest piece of a pressure suit to be one piece. That one piece has the ability to do a better job of protecting the vital zone of the chest including the sternum.
Body armour specifications:
Breathable and moisture wicking main chassis
Compression-molded EVA shoulder panels
ABS roost deflector
Articulated spine guard
The 2012 661 range of body armour protection is now available from Chain Reaction Cycles, the online bicycle store for the amature to the professional cyclists.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Axeman Saved my bacon
I wore this for the first time at bike park Wales this week. I came off on some icy rocks and landed on my back on some jagged rocks, I felt the impact through the back protecter but walked away with nothing but a bruised butt. This could have been a life changing injury but I walked away thanks to this. I had forgot I was wearing it, I wore it all day with no chafing or ill effects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Splat Good Value, Feels Safe
I read loads of reviews and decided on trying the CoreSaver. I'm happy i have made the right choice. Ok I can't realistically say how strong it is but, the 661 Core Saver seems to be fairly well made and fitted. The S/M size is a bit tight around the gut (I'm 34 Waist) but does not feel restrictive in the chest. Its maybe a little on the short side (I'm 6'2) but I feel protected enough where it matters. There is minor comfort issue with the shoulders/ collar being a little close to my throat but, once my camel-pack is on, this goes away. My first ride out with it, I didn't notice any additional heat from wearing it, even with a T-Shirt over it. It stays put mostly, with just a little riding up of the belt but nothing drastic.
Only thing to watch out for is how much safer it makes me feel... I'm sure this will result is some silliness.
Other than that, the service from Chain Reaction, £50 including free delivery (came next day) is incredible. Will definitely use them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigChild Excellent bit of Kit.
I was looking for some protection after managing to break a collar bone and didn't want something which was too hot, This is excellent, with great back protection, good padding over the top of the shoulders and collar bone area. The chest protection looks OK too. Its very comfortable and really don't notice it when riding.
As always great service from Chain Reaction ordered it Sunday got it Tuesday. You cannot ask for better!!!!!!
