Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day*by 5pm MT 9/2/15

Does the sight of roadies rocking "aero" helmets on recreational rides make you cringe? Then you're a candidate for the Six Six One Recon Helmet. Less shave-one-tenth-of-a-second and more turn-the-trail-into-a-funplex, this brain bucket lets you rip with money in the safety bank. It's built to sit farther down the back of your head for added protection when the trail gets wild. A whopping 18 vents keep your head cool while you're hammering at the pedals. Plus, thanks to the BOA fit system, you'll be able to dial in your sizing.

The Six Six One Recon Helmet is available in sizes Small/Medium and Large/X-Large, and it comes in the colors Matte White and Matte Black.

Just OK

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I ended up returning it.

Functionally it's a fine helmet, but it is much wider on the sides than it looks. And I didn't find the fit very comfortable.

I would suggest a POC or a Fox Flux instead.

Great Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used this helmet about a dozen times since receiving it, and the fit is excellent. Very comfortable, durable, and comes down on the back of the head more than previous helmet purchases. I got the large/xl size and my head is 23.5 inches (pretty big). There would be room front to back for a larger head, but side to side would not provide any more space. I got lucky and the fit is perfect. The only complaint I have is that the velcro used to attach the padding on the inside of the helmet is crap. I had some larger sections of velcro to replace it, and the padding stays in place now.

Solid Bike Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great helmet. The BOA fit adjustment is very easy to use while riding and fits snug without pinching or pressure point. Good ventilation, I've stayed nice and cool in this thing every ride. All in all, a functional steezy helmet. Definitely recommend.

This Helmet is awesome. The venting on the helmet works great.Fits nice and snug. I white because during summer days here in Utah anything helps reducing heat on your ride.

A great helmet since it's intro

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

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!
