A common question we get is - what are the differences between the new 601 D2 and the 600 Dually Dual Sport Helmets? We've laid out a few of the major differences between the two models that should help your decision making process on you new Dual Sport Helmet.
Our comparison starts with the older of the two: the 600 Dually
This helmet is bit heavier, making it more robust and sturdier than the alternative 601 D2. Our customers that love and choose the 600 Dually are looking for a secure tight fit that can withstand the test of time. The 600 Dually appeals to an older audience that love a helmet that is comfortable, secure and easy to maintain. The overall dimensions of the 600 Dually are larger than the 601 D2, which would make this helmet better suited for broader body types.
You are able to remove the peak on the Dually, but it is not advisable as the helmet does not come with pieces to finish the converted option.
The Dually features a removable moisture wicking liner, drop down integrated eyeshade, and ratchet quick release system.
Moving over to the 601 D2
Our 601 D2 appeals to a younger rider where agility and newest designs are high up for decision making factors. This helmet is both DOT and ECE approved for safety rating. The helmet is smaller in dimension than the 600 Dually, which would make this helmet better suited to someone with a smaller body type. While both the 600 Dually and the 601 D2 have options to remove the Peak, there is no finishing kit/ pieces with the 600 Dually, which can make the product look unfinished when removing the peak. However, the 601 D2 comes with the finishing pieces with your helmet, so you are able to move from the Dual Sport to Full Face/ without peak with ease.
Another reason you may want to consider the 601 D2 is that in Summer 2018, Voss will start making these helmets "Pinlock ready" to be able to attach the popular Pinlock Anti-Fog system. Depending on the climate in your riding area, the addition of Pinlock Anti-fog can be a make or break option to your helmet.
The 601 D2 has similar features to the 600 Dually: removable DryTech Liner, drop down integrated eyeshade, and ratchet quick release system.
