Six Six One Evo d3o Elbow Pad $0.00
Holler at SixSixOne's futuristic vision.
Slip on the SixSixOne Evo d3o Elbow Pads, and meet the future of MTB protection. Underneath the Evo's molded KEVLAR® elbow panels lies a flexible substance called d3o, and it will change your opinion of soft shell padding. When you take a digger, the d3o foam becomes intelligent, sensing the impact and hardening instantly to disperse it across the pad instead of through your arm. The result is a light, flexy pad that provides almost as much protection as the stiff hardshell guards you have now. Sick.
What community has to say
Slides down my arm, even with a size smaller
Tried this elbow guard in medium and find it slides down my arm too easily, due to trail chatter. It seemed loose, so I tried to size down to small, but same deal. It's still kind of loose and still slides down. Tried to wear it over some arm warmers and also over a long sleeve jersey, but same issue. Even when slid down, it still offers decent protection coverage, though the sliding nature makes it seem like it won't stay in place in a crash. It's not uncomfortable, unless you count the urge to want to slide it back up.
Have the same issue with with my Race Face Rally FRs in medium, though the small Race Face Rally FRs fit me great. Gonna go back to using those. I simply wanted one I could use with a wrist brace which my Rally FRs don't allow, since the forearm guard protects right up to the wrist.
Sucks having to wear pads...
...but since I'm not as young as I used to be and crashing is part of mountain biking I decided to get these pads. I haven't crashed too hard in them yet, but they look awesome and are as comfortable as you can get. I don't notice that I'm wearing them when I ride and they never get in the way. The velcro system could be improved, especially for how much you have to pay. Other than that I have more confidence riding with these things on.
my stitches say otherwise
I have these pads. I wrecked on them pretty hard and the rocks I landed on just pushed the pads up my arm, despite the fact that I had them strapped down hard. So they just got pushed out of the way and my forearm was sliced open by some razor rocks. The pad did a great job of keeping the blood in until I got to the E.R.
I am currently on this site to pick up a pair of Alpinestar Moab elbow pads, which will stay in place when crashing.

How are these sized? I am tall and have long arms, but I am also thin and the circumference of my arms is small. Are all sizes the same length? Does the sizing specifically correlate to the circumference of the pad?
Good enough to take home but not to the parents
These are nice, but a bit expensive and could used some tweaks.
I have small arms and I purchased smalls they still slide down. I think the issue comes from the very small velcro straps they use, the mesh system also can snag your skin and it's begging to rip. I have eaten it with them and they def do there job, the goo stuff inside hardens up on impact saving yourself a hefty doctor bill, if your interested in buying these make sure you dial in what size you need cause it can be a bit tricky.

Having trouble deciding whether to buy Medium or Large size for these. How far past the elbow to these go up to and do they stretch? THanks in advance.
These will come up about 4ish inches past your elbow. Depending on how big you are but mediums seem to be a very general fit.
Six Six One Evo d3o Elbow Pad - Teton Pass, WY

is this for a pair or just one?

I decided on these pads as I no longer wore my cumbersome hard shell elbow guards because they were just too restrictive. I realized that going padless was a recipe for disaster, so after doing that for a few weeks I decided on these pads. They are uber comfortable and will take a decent hit, but will not provide as much protection as hard plastic. For me, comfort and flexibility are paramount when ripping and retaining control, so I chose these and have been very happy since even though I haven't taken a big digger on the elbow with them yet....yet.
Good for impact, bad for rocks. . .
I've had em for just under a year. I love the idea and think D30 will change a lot of padding setups, and hopefully drop in price. As with most of the 661 stuff I own the stitching and fabric are very poorly done. One seam just never cuts it, especially when its going through a soft neoprene material. They fit nicely, bunch up occasionally. I think the knee pads are great, but the grand canyon of a scar on my right elbow tells me that perhaps they are not the best suited for anything more than a soft dirt or sand crash. . . jagged rock lovers need not apply.
Very nice! comfortable, not cold not warm, just perfect, the fabrics looks a little weak, and easy to tear, i did not crash it hard yet, but i guess this is a pay back for a comfort. I like this pads, money well spend!

I would like to now the sizing for the elbow pads, please.
It will depend upon how tall you are, and how big you are, I am 5'9" 165 and wear a medium in these
I have yet to crash test these, but they are so nice and comfortable compared to my old pads.
Comfortable, Light and Protective
The Six Six One Evo d3o Elbow Pad are comfortable, light and protective for mountain bikers of all sorts. I use (or at least bring) mine on almost every ride, cross-country, freeride, or straight downhill - they aren't too bulky to fit in the Camelbak, so why not at least bring them, right? The Six Six One Evo would also be a great elbow pad for dirt jumping or an urban assault.
Overall, the Evo d3o Elbow Pad is my #1 - I don't even notice them while I am riding, and when you take a fall, they give you all the protection need - seriously, with the new d3o padding, I feel as protected as when I used to wear my old, bulky hard-shell elbow pads. Highly recommended - in fact, I think it might be time to order some of the Evo d3o knee pads!
