SixSixOne recently revamped their entire protection collection. Thye're now offering three different lines of their knee and elbow pads. The Comp AM elbow and knee pads serve the entry-level market with retail prices of $39.99 for the elbow and $44.99 for knee pads.
In collaboration with the Gravity Republic Specialized Team, SixSixOne and Loic Bruni worked together to create both the Rage and Rage Hard line of pads. The Rage pads feature a longer pad with silicone top and bottom band to help ensure a slip-free fit.
The Rage Hard knee pad shares the same chassis as the Rage knee but adds a hard plastic knee cap shell. The pads feature biofoam side padding and mesh rear panel for added protection on a breathable package. The Rage Knee runs $69.99 and the Rage Hard is $74.99. A knee/shin option is in the works for the Rage line.
The Recon knee/shin pad is SixSixOne's light-duty protection. Using a thin layer of XRD foam on the same chassis as the Rage pads, the Recons are slimmer, lighter and more pedal-friendly. Currently the knee is available and elbows are coming in early May. Retail for both is $59.99.
Loic Bruni also wanted upper and mid-body protection. They worked together to create the SixSixOne EVO Protection suit and EVO Shorts. The EVO Protection suit uses D3O padding and will be available with both long- and short-sleeve options. Loic wanted the padding to be as slim and breathable as possible and feature a removable spine protector. The EVO suit can also carry a hydration bladder with spine protector in place or without.
The Rage, Recon and EVO suits and shorts feature the SixSixOne Padlock system. This allows protection pieces to be connected, reducing movement in the event of a crash. The EVO Protection Suit is $189 L/S and $159 S/S.
