BREA, Calif., October 6, 2016 – 6D Helmets’ proprietary Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS™) system has been named Best New Technology in the coveted Motorcyclist MOTY Awards. The MOTY award is one of the most prestigious recognitions in the motorcycle industry that identifies truly game-changing motorcycles and products; and their influence on the market.
6D’s Omni-Directional Suspension technology exclusive in 6D helmets features a fully active, in-helmet suspension and kinetic energy management system. ODS™ reduces the transfer of angular and linear accelerations to the brain by means of its 3-dimensional displacement capability. Low-threshold energy compliance is also dramatically improved providing a more forgiving helmet over a much broader range of energy demands.
Motorcyclists editors comment “The helmet is a rider’s most important piece of protective equipment, and this year helmet technology took a massive leap forward thanks to 6D’s Omni-Directional Suspension.”
“It is a great honor to receive the “Best New Technology” award from Motorcyclist.” exclaimed Bob Weber, CEO and Co-Founder, 6D Helmets. “It proves that the motorcycle community recognizes and appreciates new technologies dedicated to rider safety.”
