6D Motocross Helmets

6D Helmets – Innovative and Secure Mx Helmets

6D Helmets is a relatively new helmet manufacturer who is committed to producing and developing helmets that protect the head and brain better than other helmets on the market.

When Bob Weber and Robert Reisinger set out to make a new motocross helmet, they were not just looking to make something that looked good. They wanted to reexamine safety and what it takes to properly protect the human head and brain during impacts.

The duo came up with a completely unique design that is somewhat changing the way we think about helmet safety.

Omni Directional Suspension™

They work and build their helmets around their “Omni-Directional Suspension” concept. Here you can read more about this and below you’ll find a movie that briefly describes what it’s all about.

The 6d ATR-1

A game changer?

The 6D ATR-1 off-road motorcycle helmet has changed the industry forever, this according to 6d themselves.

The helmet was introduced in 2013 and it was the first motorcycle helmet that incorporated technology that reduced angular acceleration and low-threshold impact energy transfer. Do do this they invented the revolutionary Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) system which you already read about.

The ATR-1 is certified to exceed US DOT FMVSS 218 and ASTM F3103 (US), ECE 22.05 (47 Countries World-Wide), AS 1698 (Australia) and ACU (UK) standards.

The 6D ATR-2

The next level!

The new ATR-2 with advanced ODS provides substantial improvements in performance over the current ATR-1. This across the entire range of energy demands; low, mid, and high-velocity accelerations for both linear and angular accelerations.
