6D ATR-1 Helmet: Technology Sets A New Standard
6D is widely credited for being the first of its kind to deliver the most revolutionary full-face motorcycle helmet to the scene. Rider safety is at the forefront of 6D’s mission when designing the ATR-1 Helmet. They have patented the technology that brings a whole new level to brain protection: the Omni-Directional System (ODS) technology. 6D went above and beyond in their studies of impact management on the brain. The varying degrees of energy absorption and dispersal are addressed, securing a level of performance and safety that hasn’t yet been seen with other helmet manufacturers. 6D protection is unsurpassed with the ATR-1 Helmet.
Energy cannot be outrun or destroyed, but it can be manipulated. 6D has researched the nature of energy and engineered a modality to manage its kinetic properties during impact. Enter the patented Omni-Directional System (ODS) technology. This new technology gives 6D-egrees of freedom for the head to move inside the helmet when dealt linear or angular force. In layman's terms, you can hit your head and the force will be directed elsewhere rather than focused at the point of impact. There’s a sheer science in play; in 6D’s case, there IS replacement for displacement. The ODS technology consists of many moving parts, from the inner liner to the outer shell and everything in between. There are two EPS liners (as opposed to the usual single) and they are separate moving entities with several Elastomeric Isolation Dampers between them. This allows each liner to remain in a dynamic state. These uniquely shaped devices work as multi-directional springs allowing independent movement of each EPS shell. This redirects the force of the blow laterally instead of “head-on”. Genius. Bill Nye would be proud.
Science allows us to really get to know aspects of nature on a first-name basis. 6D got up close and personal to kinetic energy with the introduction of the ODS-equipped ATR-1. In terms of impact safety, the most crucial aspect is slowing down that initial force. By doing that, it lessens the severity of injury, exactly what ODS technology delivers. Crashing happens and happens fast. By adding time, if even in milliseconds, to the head-saver then energy transfer has been successful; force mitigated, brain saved. Protecting your brain comes first and foremost. 6D set out to focus on the true science and data behind brain injury, importantly the “how” and “why”. Using reputable research laboratories and medical resources, the ATR-1 underwent rigorous tests to ensure that 6D built the safest off-road helmet to date. Brain-saving isn’t magic, it’s science! Right, Bill?
