The 6D ATR-1Y off-road helmet incorporates the revolutionary Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) technology, which is a patent-pending kinetic energy management solution. ODS is designed to protect your brain over a broader range of impact energy; particularly the low-threshold energy prevalent in most accidents. Low-threshold impact energy is the primary cause of concussion and secondary impact syndrome. Independent laboratory testing also confirms a significant reduction in angular acceleration energy with ODS. Angular acceleration is the primary cause of rotational brain injury, which is a potentially deadly and life-changing impairment.
The improved performance of 6D's exclusive ODS technology can reduce the likelihood and propensity of concussion over traditional helmet designs. Although no helmet can protect you from all potential impacts or injury, the 6D ATR-1Y was engineered to provide active free-motion capability within the helmet's protective liner and exceed current relevant helmet standards.
ODS (Omni-Directional Suspension) technology reduces angular acceleration and improves low-threshold energy compliance significantly.
Air-gap technology for greater ventilation.
Shell - advanced aerospace composite of carbon fiber, fiberglass and Kevlar(r) - is light and strong.
Large eye port opening for maximum visibility.
Rear delta vent - evacuates air by creating a low-pressure venturi effect.
Clavicle cut-away - reduces both mass and weight, while providing increased clavicle clearance without sacrificing strength.
Helmet: Using a soft tape measure, wrap it around your head at the largest point starting about 1" (2.5 cm) up from your eyebrows and around the largest part of the back of your head, and measure the number of your head circumference.
