Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been wearing the 661 Sub gear short sleeve armor for 2 seasons now. I mostly use this piece for lighter bike park and Enduro riding. If I know things are going to get rowdy, I'll switch over to the Core Saver from 661 (full back protection). The sub gear has light chest padding for skid protection and shoulder protection for those corners you rally a bit too far on the inside. I really like the compression based fit for the long jostling descents. I feel like it reduces muscle fatigue and I barely feel it when worn under a jersey. How can it hurt if you don't know you're wearing it?

After 2 seasons off, the Filter returns better than ever! Versatility is the key to these shoes. Stiff enough for efficient pedaling on those longer trail rides and stout enough for the bike park. I tend to ride clipped in almost everywhere these days and the Filter is a great go to if you don't need a carbon sole + bike shoe aesthetics. I'll ride into town with these on my single speed and walk around a bit with ease. Also nice that they come in a few half sizes. I ride TIME pedals and they seem to work well with the SPD recessed zone on the Filter sole.

With the 661 EVO Knee being a huge hit, we decided that the same tech could be applied in an elbow pad. D30 helped to create a custom mold that ensures a solid fit + excellent impact protection. Single strap design is key for easy on/off. I've only worn mine a few days this preseason but so far they're excellent and haven't slipped a bit. I can only imagine they'll hold up as well as my EVO knee pads.

Enduro or DH!

661 has worked with D30 to provide one of the best performing soft pads on the market. I've had mine going on 3 seasons and they show little signs of wear. I've worn them everywhere! Lift laps in Whistler to Porcupine Rim in Moab, they're comfortable and low profile enough to pedal in. I have lighter pads for the days I know they'll be more up then down but the EVO knee is a go-to pad for me for when I know it's going to get rowdy. Also easy to pack in a hydration pack if it's a long slog up to start. 661 also introduced a matching elbow pad for the 2014 line/season. It's built around the same D30 padding but in an elbow specific mold/format. Check it out!!!

A great helmet since it's intro

The Recon has been a solid helmet for 661 since it's introduction in 2011. For 2014, we added the BOA driven fit system. It's been a a warm Spring here in Utah so I've already put some good miles on mine. BOA contracts equally on both sides of the helmet when tightened giving it a more consistent fit over-all. Riding a trail like MAG7 in Moab tests the best of helmets as the terrain is rough and rugged for the entire duration of the ride. I definitely felt a noticeable improvement vs prior models. 18 vents, a bit over 300 grams and BOA for $109.99 is a steal these days. GET IT!

I don't think there would be an issue packing a small tri-bike in this bag. You would need to remove the handlebar and any aero bars as well. I hope this helps.

Bob, the headset is the interface that the fork rides on. I believe you're referring to the fork? If so, it is not required for removal in most cases. Downhill forks will need to be removed some of the time. I hope this helps. See the attached picture.
