Although 2010 was a fantastic year for me on and off the trails, it was also quite a painful year due to a few “crashes”. Luckily for me nothing really serious, but I know that my luck might not last, and just like everyone else, I’m getting older and more brittle.
In 2010 I managed to break my wrist, break my big toe, break two ribs, crack 2 ribs and crack my sternum.. and of course lot’s of bacon on various body parts.
I have big plans for 2011, and have decided to focus a bit more on trail safety, and my first step was to purchase the SixSixOne 2011 Coresaver. I know this layer of protection can’t perform miracles, but at least I have some peace of mind, and it will definitely protect me more than if I did not have it.
It fits nice and snug, and am looking forward to it becoming part of my “uniform” . After I have used it on the trails a good few times, I will post a follow-up about the SixSixOne 2011 Coresaver.
Articulating armor that is adjustable with removable back protector caps allow for the rider to use the Leatt® brace, while built in shoulder protection and hard capped chest provide a unique middle ground that is not offered by anyone else in the market.

- Back area has CE-certified injection molded high-impact plastic articulated armor.

- Re-designed for 2010 to be compatible with neck braces with lighter chest plate, better fit.

- Durable yet comfortable vented mesh main body.
- No need to refrigerate! Cools itself through evaporation.
