OMNI-DIRECTIONAL SUSPENSION – EXCLUSIVE IN 6D HELMETS
6D’s revolutionary patented Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) embodies a fully active, in-helmet suspension and kinetic energy management system. The goal was simple; design a helmet that reduced energy transfer to the brain over a much broader range of energy demands, including LOW, MID, and HIGH-VELOCITY impacts for both LINEAR and ANGULAR ACCELERATIONS.
6D’s suspended dual-liner assembly will displace and shear omni-directionally when subjected to impact. This capability provides significantly improved performance against both linear and angular accelerations. There is simply no other helmet technology that can provide these combined energy management benefits.
ELASTOMERIC ISOLATION DAMPER
This damper is the heart and soul of 6D’s exclusive ODS technology. An array of dampers work in unison with the dual EPS liners to isolate impact energy from your brain. The elastic properties of the dampers, combined with their unique ‘hourglass’ shape provide a progressive spring rate that manages low and mid-threshold accelerations, while simultaneously allowing the inner EPS liner to displace and shear in 3-dimensional space within itself. This omni-directional suspension capability provides ‘six degrees of freedom’, which became the inspiration for our company name; ‘6D Helmets.’
Completely Re-engineered, the ATS-1R climbs to a whole new level of safety performance. Advanced ODS brings even greater energy mitigation performance to the system while also contributing to a lighter overall weight. Originally developed within our award winning work during the NFL’s Head Health Challenge III competition, advanced ODS offers significant improvements in both linear and angular acceleration mitigation performance. The ATS-1R provide unsurpassed security to riders and racers world-wide.
The 6D ATS-1R Helmet features 6D’s ODS (Omni-Directional Suspension) energy management system, nine total vents and a 100% carbon fiber shell. Pinlock-ready faceshield and a lens insert is included in the box.
