BREA, Calif., September 28, 2016 – The 6D ATB-1T trail helmet has been named Mountain Accessory of the Year at the 2016 Interbike International Bicycle Exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada. Nominees were considered based on the level of innovation, overall design, construction, performance, and value.
The 6D ATB-1T is the world’s first ¾ coverage mountain bike helmet utilizing 6D’s revolutionary Omni-Directional Suspension™ (ODS™) technology. The ATB-1T reduces the transfer of angular acceleration by means of the 3-dimensional displacement capability of the ODS system. Low-threshold energy compliance is also dramatically improved providing a more forgiving helmet over a much broader range of energy demands.
“This award is huge for us and only further validates all the hard work we are putting in everyday at 6D,” said Bob Weber, 6D Helmets CEO and Co-Founder. “We couldn’t have accomplished this without the dedication of our entire staff, our excellent vendor, and the staff over at Mountain Bike Action that nominated us.”
6D’s revolutionary ATB-1T helmet is available at select bicycle retail locations, online retailers, and www.6dhelmets.com. Six different styles are available in the initial release, with a retail price of $269.00
The 2016 Interbike Awards were presented in more than 30 categories. Products nominated were chosen by the awards committee consisting of editors from within the industry.
