Your new standby.
The Six Six One Evo AM Tres Helmet isn’t like your old-school trail helmet. Its lightweight design and clean graphics will have you never wanting to take it off. Unlike most helmets that are molded from EPS foam, the Evo AM Tres uses Contego foam. This foam is touted to absorb as much as 30% more impact energy than EPS, making it ideal for high speed situations and rocky, tree-lined trails. To ensure that your helmet stays on, should you hit the dirt, Six Six One uses a Boa retention system to adjust the circumference of the inner webbing so that your head is securely wrapped.

Better than I expected
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
661 is pretty much what you expect when it is gotta be affordable but still work. When you see a $150 helmet from them you have to think someone is trying to pull a fast one, or maybe the company has decided to push its price point a little. Well, I can tell you what has actually happened in this case. They have made an incredible helmet. I don't understand where the accolades and reviews are. Oh, wait, I do. It isn't Troy Lee or some Coffee Sipping North West brand of the moment.
This helmet is light, sturdy, fits awesome with a nifty BOA closure system. The magnetic clasp is the best I have ever used. I can't say enough about this helmet. I am really digging it.
