Press Release: SixSixOne
The new Recon Advance protection balances a technical combination of high absorption impact materials matched with rider cut mobility patterns, low profile with extended fit with optional hard cap for maximum comfort and on-trail confidence.
Designed to offer the finest pedal-friendly, high impact protection experience for modern-day riders. The Recon Advance pads feature an extended one piece slip on sleeve with high thigh fit for added comfort and security. Protection certified to EN1621-1 with a lightweight and flexible D3O LP1 insert with the option of adding a hard cap outer shell - for those extra rocky trails.
MTB Protection has come a long way since our early days. Established in Southern California in ‘99 - SixSixOne set out on a path to push the envelope of protective equipment. Over two decades of hitting the dirt, we continue in our quest to design the ultimate gear by introducing the NEW Recon Advance.
Mountain Biking’s original protection was begged, borrowed or adapted from other sports. We’ve taken over 20 years of heavy impacts, slide outs and pedal slams to stamp our place in mountain bike history and we are still charging hard to help shape the future of MTB protection.
