Six Six One Evolution Shin Guard is a vented Shin Guards with D30 Technology.
SIXSIXONE have teamed up with d3o, leaders in intelligent foam technology to create the EVO pad set, a new approach to the tough demands of 21st century MTB riding.
Strengths: These are super comfortable and really protect from pedal gashes to the shins.
Weaknesses: The problem that I have with these pads is that the fabric that wraps around your leg stretches and tears over time. So as the fabric stretches you find yourself compensating by tightening them to your leg more and more until the Velcro connection spots don't match up anymore. I cant fasten them to my leg tight enough and they slide down my shins.... 661, put a fabric that doesn't stretch on these over time.
Comfortable and really protect your shins. Can get hot in the summer months. Fabric stretches and tears over time. 661, put a better tougher fabric on these things and I would by again.... if not, I'll pass.
