The New 2012 661 range of Mountain bike body protection featuring the Sub Short
SixSIxOne is pushing product development to the limits to build the new Sub Short Body Protection 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 Sub Short body protection:
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:
Compression fit, breathable fabric construction improves blood flow and boosts muscle recovery
Anatomical EVA pads offer full coverage of hip, thigh, and tailbone areas
Extra wide elasticized waist band
Silicone leg grippers
The 2012 661 range of body armour protection is now available from Chain Reaction Cycles, the online bicycle store for the amateur to the professional cyclists.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lukiwiki good short for XC
I am 34" waist and XL fits perfect. The shorts are comfy when pedaling , superlight and the pads are exactly where they have to be. No chamois, so 2-3 hours of trails are the max. Forget about them for downhill etc... too soft. No silicon grippers. Got them in sale, for full price I would think twice before buying

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rayman I expected more for a 661 cloth
Since it doesnt have chamois you need another short. the fabric is not very breathable. protections are acceptable but I was expecting a better short

Rated 3 out of 5 by RALLE Nicht für DH aber AM
Für DH und FR scheinen die Pads etwas zu dünn zu sein. Dafür ist sie leicht und sitzt gut. Zum AM und Enduro scheint sie daher gut zu passen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Davidecrash Un po' leggeri
Hanno poca protezione e sono senza fondello per i tratti pedalati, non saprei quando metterli

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Great shorts but......
The quality of manufacture is shocking. Worn twice and the seam stitching is shot in multiple places. Massive shame as the kex are otherwise sweet. Didn't expect to have to engage needle and thread quite so soon. 661 product Is mostly cool but these are poor quality. Very disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Pads are actually a bit thinner then they seem in the picture, shorts almost weight nothing and are made from a cool elastic spandex like material that doesn't heat up very much when riding. After a few months the fabric seems to be grinding off around the pads but is still fine. Good for XC, All mountain or enduro, but a little weak for a DH crash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Very light shorts, with thin and soft pads. They fit good, but I couldnt find any silicone grippers! Haven´t tested them on a long ride yet.
