The Mountain Bike Action crew has been testing 6D helmets for years, with great results so far. Their technology delivers a level of protection, that they claim has a level of protection on low-speed and rotational impacts far better than the standard EPS foam options. We have one of these new Trail versions of the 6D line in the testing queue as we speak, so keep your eyes peeled for a full review in the future pages of MBA.
6D Helmets, the world-wide helmet technology leader is proud to announce the arrival of their new ATB-1T trail helmet. The ATB-1T is the world’s first ¾ coverage MTB helmet utilizing 6D’s revolutionary Omni-Directional Suspension™ (ODS™) technology. An engineering masterpiece, the ATB-1T has been painstakingly crafted to deliver all of the exceptional benefits of ODS into a lightweight and compact trail helmet. The ATB-1T reduces the transfer of angular acceleration force by means of its 3-dimensional displacement and shearing capability of the ODS system when subject to impacts. Low-threshold energy accelerations are also dramatically reduced, providing a more forgiving helmet over a much broader range of energy demands. The ATB-1T is designed and suitable for all MTB riding activities except downhill.
The ATB-1T is available in 6 distinct color options in sizes Medium-Large (55-59cm). Sizes XS-Small and XL-XXL will be available early summer.
The ATB-1T is certified to exceed CPSC 16CFR 1203 and EN 1078 standards.
