6D ATR-1 MATT BLACK

THE ORIGINAL GAME CHANGER.


6D revolutionized helmet design with the 2013 introduction of the ATR-1 helmet, whose ODS technology set new standards in athlete brain protection by providing protection over a much broader range of energy demands, including both linear and angular acceleration forces. Inspired by 6D’s work, some manufacturers have subsequently introduced technology in an effort to address the inherent flaws in traditional designs which 6D exposed. To date, none have achieved the overall performance characteristics of 6D’s ODS system. Now, the revolutionary ATR-1’s lower price will allow more riders to enjoy the safety benefits and superior protection of the exceptional 6D ATR-1.

• SHEAR-AWAY VISOR SCREWS

• ROOST GUARD

• CLAVICAL CUT-AWAY

• STERNUM PAD – Provides added protection of the chin, jaw and sternum

• EXCEEDS ECE, DOT, ASTM, AU and AC standards.

• 3-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY

ONLY 6D HAS OMNI-DIRECTIONAL SUSPENSION

6D’s revolutionary patented Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) technology represents a fully active, in-helmet suspension and kinetic energy management system. Engineered to uncouple the helmet’s exterior shell from the inner EPS liner, the system effectively mitigates energy transfer to the head and brain of the rider during any given accident or impact event. The ODS system is comprised of 2 EPS liners separated by an array of elastomeric isolation dampers that allow the system to sheer and displace 3-dimensionally when subjected to impact.

Omni-Directional Suspension functions over a much broader range of energy demands, including LOW, MID and HIGH-Velocity impacts for both Angular and Linear accelerations when compared to other competing helmets, and helmet technologies.

There is simply no other helmet, or helmet technology that can provide the exceptional energy management benefits of Omni-Directional Suspension.

ELASTOMERIC ISOLATION DAMPER
This damper is the heart and soul of 6D’s exclusive Omni-Directional Suspension technology. An array of dampers work in unison with the dual EPS liners to isolate impact energy from the brain. The elastic properties of the dampers, combined with their unique ‘hourglass’ shape provide a progressive spring rate that manages low and mid-velocity accelerations, while simultaneously allowing the inner EPS liner to displace and shear in 3-dimensional space. This omni-directional displacement capability of the EPS liners provides ‘six degrees of freedom’, which became the inspiration for our company name; ‘6D Helmets.’

SUPERIOR ANGULAR ACCELERATION MITIGATION

ANGULAR ACCELERATION (ROTATIONAL) is generated from oblique angle impacts to the helmet’s surface. The result of this type of impact, and subsequent energy transfer is shearing, tearing, compression, and rotation of the brain within the skull. The medical community has determined that angular acceleration is the primary cause of concussion, mild-traumatic brain injury (MTBI), and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Tests conducted by Dr. David C. Viano of the Bioengineering Center at Wayne State University concluded that a helmeted head sustained the same degree of angular acceleration as the un-helmeted head when subjected to identical impacts. So, if angular acceleration is a major cause of concussion (or worse), how is the brain protected by conventional helmet design? Unfortunately, in respect to angular acceleration energy, it is not.


By uncoupling the helmet’s inner liner assembly from the outer liner and shell, 6D’s revolutionary Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) system effectively mitigates the transfer of angular acceleration to the head and brain of the rider during any impact event.
