Bottom line.
I'll probably wear to Blue Mountain or Whistler.
Good protection..better than wearing nothing.
Has a few faults..but most can be dealt with while wearing the suit.

3 chillies for vaule...coulda had a better budget while making the suit.
3 chillies for overall cause ive wiped out before and it has saved my a$$ one or two times.

Date Reviewed: November 4, 2008

Strengths:    Comfortable, lightweight

Weaknesses:    shoulder pads, cheap manufacturing

Bottom Line:   
I bought this suit because it seemed less bulky and more comfortable to wear compared to other suits...and it is. The spine protection is solid and the big velcro strap around your stomach keeps it in place. The real weaknesses are the shoulder pads and the tiny velcro straps for them. After one ride they were already coming loose and wobbling around on my shoulders. Doesn't seem like they will do much in the event of a crash and there really are no other adjustments to make on the shoulders. Not to mention, the whole thing seems cheaply stitched together.

Date Reviewed: August 25, 2008

Strengths:    Comfortable and tough

Weaknesses:    Lack of adjustability in shoulder pads, strange sizing.

Bottom Line:   
Much more bulky than the pro suit, shoulders are really widely spaced apart, altho a jersey on top can help keep them in place. The kidney belt seems quite useless as it moves alot, even when strapped real tight. The back protection has been redesigned for '08 and feels bulkier than previous models i tried on in stores. Protection is very good, i've had some big crashes at Whistler and been real happy to have been wearing this suit. Extremley over priced in most stores in Vancouver area, definetley recommend buying on ebay. Make sure you try a few different brands and various sizes before buying.

661 Coresaver vs Assault Pressure suit?

My buddy and I have been looking at pressure suits/body armour, we don't want a full-on pressure-suit with alot of arm protection, and we've pretty much narrowed it down the 661 Core-Saver and the 661 Assault pressure suit. The coresaver seems to be more like a bulletproof vest with not alot of sho ... Read More »
