6D Helmets now available from Helmet City!
Helmet City now have the amazing 6D ATS-1 Helmets available and with an incredible Free Gift Accessory Pack! Born in the extremely demanding sport of Professional Motocross in America, the 6D Helmets have been developed to give outstanding protection and comfort using the most revolutionary and up to date techniques.
The give a short explanation, " 6D’s revolutionary patented Omni-Directional Suspension (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. See our description below for more information." Please see the Technical Details below for more details.
ATS-1 6D Helmets - Product Description
The 6D ATS-1 provides exceptional energy management capibilities, quality build level, luxurious comfort and fit making an aerodynamic, sleek, and functional motorcycle helmet with exceptionally strong design and aesthetic appeal with every detail of the helmet painstakingly engineered from scratch to meet the design and performance specifications demanded by 6D.
6D's Patented ODS is a fully active, in-helmet suspension and kinetic energy management system. ODS reduces the transfer of angular and linear accelerations to the brain by means of its 3-dimensional displacement capability.
PROPRIETARY FACE SHIELD
6D's proprietary face shield allows for maximum field of vision and features a lock down lever, 10 micro adjustment positions and an articulating pivot, ensuring a quiet, snug fit when closed and quick tool free changes. The face shield also features anti-scratch technology and a Pinlock anti-fog insert.
3K carbon ultra light shell layup. Advanced proprietary blend of aerospace carbon is remarkably strong and light. Multiple shell sizes optimize the size and weight ratio ensuring the perfect fit.
Removable and washable, the 6D ATS-1 comfort liner is as advanced as the helmet. Convertible for warm weather riding by removing the rear neck roll cuff and chin curtain, the airflow characteristics can be significantly altered. High-tech fabrics mated to CAD designed interal padding provides superior comfort, noise suppression and moisture dissipation. Available in multiple sizes for a customised fit.
ODS AIR-GAP VENTILATION SYSTEM
The ATS-1 helmet incorporates an advanced air flow management system designed to provide adjustable air flow throughout the entire helmet. This air flow system aids in heat and moisture evacuation from within the helmets interior area providing a cooler and safer enviroment during extreme riding conditions. 4 adjustable itnake ports channel fresh air into the helmet where it is managed by a network of 15 transfer ports and 5 exhaust ports.
ONLY 6D HAS OMNI-DIRECTIONAL SUSPENSION
6D’s revolutionary patented Omni-Directional Suspension (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.
ELASTOMERIC ISOLATION DAMPER
This damper is the heart and soul of 6D’s exclusive Omni-Directional Suspension technology. An array of dampers work in unison with the dual EPS liners to isolate impact energy from the brain. The elastic properties of the dampers, combined with their unique ‘hourglass’ shape provide a progressive spring rate that manages low and mid-velocity accelerations, while simultaneously allowing the inner EPS liner to displace and shear in 3-dimensional space. This omni-directional displacement capability of the EPS liners provides ‘six degrees of freedom’, which became the inspiration for the company name; ‘6D Helmets.’
