Riding Impressions


For 2012, SixSixOne introduced an all-new lightweight downhill specific helmet. With a great, comfortable fit, light weight and good styling, the Evo Carbon is a continuation of SixSixOne's progressive helmet design.

Large vents located under the visor and at the back of the helmet encourage airflow and keep your head cool during riding. Goggle fit and peripheral vision wasn't an issue with the well designed eye opening.

The only small conflict with the helmet is with GoPro mounting - It is slightly hindered due to a small fin/ridge that runs front to back on the top of the helmet, but a small modification to the GoPro helmet mount (cutting/removing a small strip of the 3M tape to provide relief for the small ridge) proved easy and is still giving a strong mount thus far.

What's The Bottom Line?

Looking for a lightweight, downhill specific helmet? Put this helmet on the top of your list if performance, comfort and quality are in your helmet search criteria. During the seven months I've been using the helmet, I've had zero issues and it still looks great after countless rides.

The Good: 1. it's fairly lighter compared to other carbon helmet 2. Sun visor is flexible so it won't break easily 3. air ventilation is great 4. click on lock

The Bad: bad graphic, less graphic choice and, 661 should redesign it to better suit Leatt and other neck brace

Overall Review:

It's a great value vs price for a carbon helmet
