The 661 range of Mountain bike Full Face Helmets featuring the Evo Carbon Camber Helmet
SixSIxOne is pushing product development to the limits to build a range that exceeds the standards within the motocross and mountain bike industries. Their designers incorporate the newest technology to provide quality products that excel in comfort and protection.
Technologies for the 661 MTB Evo Carbon Camber Helmet:
Neck Brace Compatible: Certain technologies work better if the supporting products are designed to work in conjunction with each other. Neck braces are one of those technologies that need products design specifically to work with other safety equipment. Certain helmets, chest protectors, and roost deflectors are designed to work in conjunction with a neck brace to maximize comfort, fit, and motion.
Full helmet Venting System: The Full Helmet Venting System, or FHVS, is a system designed to give maximum airflow by linking channels and vents to create a vortex of airflow pushing warm air out of the helmet allowing cooler air to keep you cool.
Panorama Eye Port: The Panorama full view eye port is designed to give maximum peripheral vision and allow any goggles to fit without interference.
3K carbon fiber: 3K carbon fiber is made with a tighter weave that is more flexible in the molding process which allows the helmet shell to have more carbon fiber strands supported by less resin. The use of less resin in turn allows the helmet to be lighter yet still provide superior protection.
Coolmax®: Coolmax® fabric is the performance fabric that includes an effective fiber-based moisture management system. The system can move perspiration away from the body, and through thefabric, where it can evaporate quickly, allowing the wearer to feel cooler and more comfortable.

3k Carbon construction for optimal strength to weight ratio - Weight: 2.1 lb/975g , /- 25g

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lewis comfortable and light
bought a slightly older version of this helmet a few years ago (carbon version) and it has performed very well for me.. has taken some massive hits, general ware and tear (dropped it plenty of times and hasn't cracked whatsoever.. very comfortable, well ventilated, light and good field of view.
however, the ventilation meshes are not very strong at all and came lose within a few weeks.. however, not a massive issue for me
overall good helmet and good value for money

Rated 4 out of 5 by MeowMeow Value for money but don't expect too much.
I bought this full face helmet after crashing my other Urge full face helmet during a DH trip in Indonesia. This helmet is confirm stronger in built as compared to my former Urge helmet BUT the workmanship wise will let time and usage to speak for itself. Firstly, I a bit concern that certain parts of the helmet were NOT 100% covered with the carbon fibre material and you can still see through certain portion of the helmet at some of the corners. Meaning, you are seeing the resin they had used on this helmet. Also, it is rather hot putting this helmet on in our Asia climax.
Well, we can't always have the best of both worlds but with the nice price tag, you just got to live with it :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shurf Отличный фулфейс!
За эти деньги, отличный карбоновый шлем, по сравнению с обычными шлемами 661, у самого есть, этот ощутимо легче, сделан в традициях 661. Для спусков и техничного катания, где есть вероятность хорошо убраться самое то! Ну и смотрится очень красиво, купил очки к нему "под карбон", теперь еще и модный весь )))

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peted Light weight - good protection - looks ace
Ive had this helmet for about six months now and still rate it very highly.
Quality is good no issues at all. Still looks great.
Its light weight and doesnt strain your neck.
Only negative is a lack of spare peak. Who wants to look like a bullet head ?

Worn this hood now for about 3 months and wow it's mint. Great fit, looks boss and is very light. I prefer the clip chin strap to the standard thread through buckle type. Great visibility area and the cool max material keeps your head from not exploding from heat build up.
Best helmet I have ever had.....
