Press Release: Sixsixone
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 hitting the dirt, we continue in our quest to design the ultimate gear by introducing the updated Recon range.
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. The original Recon pads were an exercise in minimalist trail protection. Our completely redesigned CE 1621-1 rated Recon pads take the torch on and improve all aspects of our most pedal friendly pad.
The new Recon features increased protection certification from a machine washable D3O Ghost insert that gives maximum flexibility and increased impact absorption. An extended sleeve construction for improved comfort and a secure fit backed with our Padlock connection system that links our kneepads and protective shorts.
