Absorbing up to 30% more impact than standard EPS foam, the Six Six One Evo AM Helmet uses Contigo foam to protect your head in the event of a traumatic crash. Its aggressive lines cater to modern trail riders and enduro racers, with 15 sculpted high-flow vents to keep your head nice and cool on hot summer rides. The backside's flatly sculpted shape provides better retention of goggle straps for enduro racers.
The antimicrobial, adjustable padding keeps your helmet fresh and stink-free when you're sweating on the trail. Additionally, the Fidlock magnetic buckle and Boa 360-degree retention system dial-in a great fit.

- Q & A
GOOD, NOT GREAT
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Overall, this is a good fitting and good looking helmet with some great features, but one fit issue that might be a dealbreaker for me. On the plus side, you have memory foam padding, BOA adjustment, and a slick magnetic clasp. On the minus side, the BOA system sits low in back and pushes the whole helmet up if you look uphill, and you can't move the system upward to compensate for this. The magnetic clasp is cool, but since it doesn't have that familiar feel like a quick release buckle, it actually takes a second longer for me to connect than my old helmet. And the visor is not adjustable. I think I will end up returning this helmet and going with a Smith Forefront, despite the extra cash.
