6D ATR-2 Helmet | Spring 2019

Spring is Sprung with the 6D ATR-2 Helmet Spring Collection!

As the weather heats up and the dirt bike riding conditions optimize, many of the helmet companies are releasing their latest creations. To that end, the 6D ATR-2 Helmet collection for 2019 is absolutely stunning! Great colors and graphics are only half the story though. Let’s check out what makes these helmets so great from a construction and safety standpoint.

As we know, the 6D ATR-2 Helmet provides improved performance in both linear and angular acceleration mitigation. In layman’s terms, these are prime pieces of motocross protective gear! Moreover, it’s also easily rebuilt for a potentially longer service life. That brings extreme value to the table!

Make no mistake, when you improve rider safety while saving the consumer money- you have a formula for success. That’s why 6D Helmets are taking the motocross community by storm. These dirt bike helmets are fantastic.

Now let’s check out these aforementioned features. The ATR-2 sports a lot of them! The safety specs alone will have you feeling mighty confident over those dirt bike controls. As a result, you’ll have 3rd gear pinned while grabbing the holeshot, knowing that you’re fully protected in the event of a fall.



6D ATR-2 Helmet Features

6D’s challenge and goal is simple. It’s to develop a revolutionary design concept utilizing creative, forward-thinking technology that would change the market. Also to improve the safety capabilities of the sport’s helmet. This is especially true of their Youth Dirt Bike Helmets. To that end, 6D’s exclusive ‘Omni Directional Suspension™’ provides protection capabilities unmatched by any other helmet or helmet technology. And that’s just the beginning.

6D ATR-2 Helmet = Big Time Safety Tech

6D revolutionized helmet design with their introduction of the ATR-1 Flight Helmet. Furthermore, the helmet’s modern safety technology set new standards in athlete brain protection by providing protection over a much broader range of energy demands. Obviously, this includes both linear and angular acceleration forces.

Today, some manufacturers are introducing technology in an effort to address the inherent flaws in traditional designs. Yet so far, none achieve the overall performance characteristics of 6D’s ODS system. Noteworthy is that the revolutionary ATR-2 Sector Helmet allows more riders to enjoy the safety benefits and superior protection.

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

What’s in a name? For 6D, it’s not your ordinary moniker for motocross apparel. In fact, their name is 6D because of the engineering term 6 Degrees of Freedom. Which refers to the ability to move 3-dimensionally in space about the Cartesian coordinate system of X,Y and Z. Which includes rotation about each axis. 

Moreover, it’s their Omni-Directional Suspension system that utilizes this term to maximize its ability to absorb and mitigate energy.
