661 has taken it’s highly popular and mightly affordable Reset full face helmet and given it a Mips makeover for 2019.
Back at the start of 2018 661 launched a bunch of new products, including new gloves and full-face helmet models. The launch was a significant one, almost a relaunch of the brand so that it could once again focus on high-performance protection at down to earth pricing.
The 661 Reset, clever name, was the first new 661 full-face and featured a bespoke shell design, attractive finishes, plenty of vents and excellent visibility. It was also great value at less than £84.99 retail but could be found for about half of that online.
Building on the success of the 2018 661 Reset, 661 has taken that standard helmet and given it a slight upgrade. The standard 661 Reset is still available, but this improved model is now available for riders looking for more features while retaining a great price point.
Named the 661 Reset MIPS, the new budget helmet features MIPS protection, an important feature that is proven to help protect your brain in a severe accident. MIPS works by reducing rotational forces that are transmitted in a crash, but it’s something we normally see on helmets costing £150+, not on £115 full-face lids.
In addition to added MIPS, 661 has added 2 new colours to the range and is offering the lightweight ABS helmet in 7 sizes ranging from XX2 to XXL (48cm-64cm) making it a good choice for riders of all ages.

Other features include large angular vents for better airflow, a large eye port for compatibility with goggles and a design that complies with CPSC, CE: 1078, AS/NZS 2063 standards.
All 661 products are available from www.sixsixone.com.
