What makes the ATR-1 Sonic so unique is the patented ODS technology. The Omni-Directional Suspension Technology is designed to help prevent severe head & brain damage so riders can ride with confidence when pushing their limits. The ODS protects riders from straightforward impact, but also directional impact as well. 6D helmets have undergone hours of extensive testing by Dynamic Research Inc., the authority on vehicle dynamics and accidentology. In short, the ODS system reduces the amount of time it takes for the impact to transfer energy from the exterior shell of the helmet to head & brain of the rider. Decelerating this force is the key to preventing short and long term brain damage. Study after study has shown that 6D helmets provide superior protection when compared to their competitors.
The shell of the Sonic is a special blend of carbon fiber, Kevlar and fiberglass which makes the dirt bike helmet extremely sturdy without dramatically increasing the weight. Underneath the shell lies an EPS layer that absorbs directional impacts and decelerates impact forces. These two layers work in tandem to give rides the ultimate head protection. The Sonic weighs less than four pounds which goes a long way in keeping riders comfortable. Speaking of comfort, 6D helmets are equipped with a number of specializes ventilation ports that work in tandem to keep the rider comfortable. The vents placed on the front helps cool air to enter into the helmet cavity by utilizing forward acceleration. The four exhaust ports on the back permit the hot air to escape the helmet
This dirt bike helmet has many other useful features that make it one of the best helmets on the market. The inner liner of the 6D ATR-1 Sonic helmet deserves special mention. The lining is made of CoolMax® anti-bacterial fabric that helps to keep the helmet fresh. What’s great about this liner is that it is moisture wicking. It draws moisture away from the hair and skin of the rider and onto the fabric where it can more easily evaporate. This dirt bike helmet has many safety features that help to stave off injuries. The visor is attached with shear away visor screws, which allows it to detach from helmet itself. The ATR-1 Sonic is also equipped with emergency release cheek pads that allow medical personnel to have quick access to the riders head.
