Their Omni-Directional Suspension system utilizes this term to maximize its ability to absorb and mitigate energy. 6D Helmets® are dedicated to the relentless pursuit of brain protection. This has become their challenge and their goal: to develop a revolutionary design concept utilizing creative, forward-thinking technology that would change the market and improve the safety capabilities of the sport's helmet.6D's exclusive patented Omni Directional SuspensionT provides protection capabilities unmatched by any other helmet or helmet technology. The 6D ATR-2 Helmet is the rebuildable, most advanced energy management device ever manufactured for off-road motorcyclists. Infused with technology found nowhere else, the 6D ATR-2 Helmet's Omni-Directional System is built around elastomeric dampers that allow the inner EPS liner to move independently from the denser, outer EPP (expanded polypropylene) foam layer. 6D refined this ODS technology while collaborating with the NFL during the Head Health Challenge III competition - a four-year study that concluded in 2017. All this technology takes place in a lightweight package that is housed in a tri-composite shell, split over three shell sizes for a slim profile. With the ATR-2 Helmet, the inner EPS layer - the sacrificial defense against impact - is carried by these ODS dampers. Most importantly, this system mitigates rotational forces to the brain. But this unique design also allows this inner layer to be replaced after an impact.
The unique design is effectively a helmet within a helmet. The outer EPP foam is designed to absorb force and then rebound after an impact; its structure does not permanently deform as expanded polystyrene does. Unlike conventional helmets, this is not a one crash and done helmet. Unlike other helmets, 6D's industry leading innovations make the ATR-2 the most impact compliant lid on the market. The Most Compliant Energy Management Solution Available.From low to high velocity impacts the ATR-2 out- performs the market competitors by significant margins. The advanced ODS system is freer to manage shearing loads while managing linear compressions with a combination of isolation dampers and variable height EPP damping towers. Low Velocity Impacts are Far and Away the Most Common Type of Off-Road Accidents. Medical research has provided alarming conclusions surrounding the causes, severity, and long-term effects of concussions. Even seemingly minor concussions may have much more serious long-term effects on the brain. No other helmet company cared about low-threshold energy transfer before 6D brought the issue to light in 2013. This is the most critical performance range of helmets and covers all impact velocities below the certification standard's requirements, for both linear and angular accelerations. Low-Threshold Energy is the most concerning problem facing the athlete today, illustrated in this simple graph to the right.
As you can see, the energy transfer in all the competitive helmets referenced is at, or above the concussion threshold for an adult male and accurately represents the market. 6D's Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) starts working the instant any force is applied to the shell.
Its suspended inner liner travels and shears under crash impact loading thereby reducing energy transfer to the brain. Time is Critical in Reducing Energy Transfer to the Brain. Time-To-Peak (TTP) is the measurement of time (in milliseconds) it takes the energy of an impact to reach maximum (peak) G force. Deceleration time is the single most beneficial component of reducing the severity and magnitude of any impact. The more time, the less severe the energy transfer will become.6D's advanced ODS technology buys time. Angular Acceleration Force is the Primary Cause of Concussion. Angular acceleration (rotational force) is generated from oblique angle impacts to the helmet surface resulting in shearing, stretching, and tearing, of the soft tissues within the brain.
The medical community has determined that angular acceleration is the primary cause of concussion, traumatic brain injury and worse. Laboratory testing at Wayne State University has proven that a helmeted head sustained the same degree of angular acceleration as the un-helmeted head when subjected to identical impacts. This is because the helmet is directly "coupled" to the wearer's head. One of the major benefit features of Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) is that it effectively "uncouples" that relationship allowing the shell and outer liner to shear independently to the inner layer and the head-form; thereby scrubbing off a high percentage of the angular acceleration force.
