6D changed the helmet industry forever in 2013 with the introduction of the revolutionary ATR-1 off-road motorcycle helmet, with its patented Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) technology. 6D's ODS technology has been studied, analyzed and tested by some of the greatest minds in head protection and has proven itself effective all around the glove across multiple helmet platforms. The exceptional 6D ATR-1 revolutionized helmet design and kicked off a technology race to improve helmet safety performance.
The standard by which all other youth helmets are measured:
The ATR-1Y is the only premium helmet designed specifically for youth riders and is the ideal choice for MX and BMX competition. Incorporating all of the amazing benefits of 6D's revolutionary Omni-Directional Suspension technology, this helmet has no equal.
The ATR1Y is designed with softer multi-density EPS materials, and softer isolation dampers that offer superior protection to the child's still-developing brain and skull. The helmet is smaller, lighter and more compliant than the adult helmet and is certified to both DOT FMVSS 218 and ECE 2205 standards.
ONLY 6D HAS OMNI-DIRECTIONAL SUSPENSION: 6D’s revolutionary patented 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.
