The next revolutionary MX helmet safety - 6D Helmets June 16 2015, 0 Comments
The 6D ATR-1 off-road helmet incorporates 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 low–threshold energy prevalent in most accidents. Low-threshold impact energy is the primary cause of concussion and second impact syndrome*. Independent laboratory testing also confirms a significant reduction in angular acceleration 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-1 was engineered to provide active free-motion capability within the helmet’s protective liner and exceed current relevant helmet standards.
Six Degrees of Freedom – In engineering terms, refers to the ability to move 3
dimensionally in space about the Cartesian coordinate system of X,Y and Z, including rotation about each axis.
6D’s™ innovative ODS™ system improves impact force management within the helmet’s interior environment. Omni-Directional Suspension™ ( ODS™ ) technology is designed to protect your head over a broader range of energy transfer; especially angular acceleration in low and high velocity impacts, than traditional helmet designs. In testing, ODS™ has shown to significantly reduce the energy transferred to the head. This can reduce the likelihood of a concussion or brain injury over a traditional helmet.
