Check out this video rundown from the manufacturer. As you will soon learn… These dirt bike helmets are killer!
ATR-2 = Broad Range Protection.
This dirt bike helmet (like the ATR-2 Strike Helmet pictured above) sports the most compliant energy management solution available. From low to high velocity impacts! In short, 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. How? With a combination of isolation dampers and variable height EPP damping towers. This is certainly true of the ATR-2 Circuit Helmet!
ATR-2 = Low-Threshold Energy
Because low-velocity impacts are far & away the most common type of off-road accidents…
Medical research has provided alarming conclusions surrounding concussions. Something to consider when replacing your dirt bike brakes! This includes their causes, severity and long-term effects. Even seemingly minor concussions! They have much more serious long-term effects on the brain. It’s scary all the way around.
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. Once you open the 6D Helmet Bag, you’re getting the safest helmet in the industry. Moreover, it covers all impact velocities below the certification standard’s requirements. Both for linear and angular accelerations.
Low-Threshold Energy is the most concerning problem facing the athlete today. Illustrated in this simple graph above. Clearly, it makes us all rethink our dirt bike gear! The energy transfer in all the competitive helmets referenced is at, or above the concussion threshold for an adult male. Furthermore, it 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. It thereby reduces energy transfer to the brain. The ATR-2 Aero Helmet below looks as good as it protects!
ATR-2 = Angular Acceleration
Angular Acceleration Force is the primary cause of concussion.
Angular acceleration (rotational force) is generated from oblique angle impacts to the helmet surface. This results in shearing, stretching, and tearing of the soft tissues within the brain. Therefore, Motocross Protective Gear is a MUST. The medical community has determined that angular acceleration is the primary cause of concussion. Moreover, it also causes traumatic brain injury and worse.
Laboratory testing at Wayne State University* proves interesting results. A helmeted head sustains 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 benefits of Omni-Directional Suspension is that it effectively “uncouples” that relationship. This allows the shell and outer liner to shear independently to the inner layer… And the head-form. The ATR-2 Sector Helmet below rocks ODS! This scrubs off a high percentage of the angular acceleration force. And just like that- maximum safety.
