6D, the helmet manufacturer who made a name for itself by re-writing the rules when it comes to helmet design and rider safety, has introduced arguably the most advanced youth helmet on the market today – the ATR-2Y.

According to 6D, between 2000 and 2011 over 4 million injuries were reported. Of those, 11.3% were Head and Neck Injuries (HNI), with motocross registering the fourth highest injury total (78,236). Only skiing (83,313), Snowboarding (97,527), and skateboarding (129,600) ranked higher. What’s equally alarming is, at a single race event survey conducted by 6D, half the riders reported experiencing concussion-related symptoms from riding, and over 60% of those riders continued racing that day. To add even more numbers to think about; each year 1 million Americans sustain a concussion, 300,000 of which are sports related.
Obviously, the health and well being of our kids is of utmost importance, and considering how many participate in motocross events across the world, reducing their likelihood of concussions in a fall is a top priority. With the ATR-2Y, 6D has taken a big step in youth safety.
6D has announced their latest youth helmet offering, packed full of safety and performance features.
