We all love what suspension has done for the mountain bike. We can ride faster, and go bigger than ever before. Unfortunately, that also means that we crash bigger than ever before. That means that modern mountain bikers are in need of protection that is progressing as fast as the sport. Well, just as suspension has improved our bikes and riding, so is it improving the helmets that protect us. The 6D ATB-1T has the distinct privilege to be the world's first ¾ coverage helmet that uses Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS). ODS consists of an array of elastomer dampers that sit between the dual EPS liners that absorb and disperse the energy of low, medium and high speed impacts. This means better protection from the types of impacts that are more likely to cause serious brain trauma. In addition to its superior protection, the ATB-1T also features 15 air scavenging transfer ports for maximum ventilation. The moisture wicking, anti-bacterial liner is comfortable and can be washed to keep foul odors at bay. The removable visor adds versatility to meet any riding condition, while the FIDLOCK magnetic closure offers easy operation even with gloves on. Strap on the ATB-1T and feel confident that you have the best protection available for XC, Trail, and Enduro riding.

I purchased this helmet to replace a POC Octal road helmet that was damaged in a crash that resulted in a severe concussion. A friend introduced me to 6D and I am convinced that this is the safest helmet out there to help mitigate concussion risk. I use it as a road helmet without the visor. It is easily removable for those who don't need to bang branches out of the way. It cools well enough in 80+ temperature. I haven't noted any big disadvantage from the extra weight. The smaller vents keep my baldish head form getting sun burned without a cap. I also think without the visor it is aero as well. If style is your only concern than buy something else for the road. In my mind safety trumps coolness . I hope not to crash test it but I feel the safest I ever have on a bike.
As with all helmets take a long look at the coolest factor, of course we all like that kinda of stuff? But what people really should look at 1st. Is since you only have ONE BRAIN, which is not cool to look at after its been turned to gel after wearing a cooler looking helmet vs. THE SAFEST CYCLING HELMENT PRODUCED in my cycling experience which I hate to say is decades +. So I chose the 6D after reviewing so many of the top brands and how they build and than test them. 6D not a huge company but if you look into theirs history you will see why they are to date the safest HELMENT right now. And one that relies on my cycling equipment I am confident that I made the best Choice for my brain so if needed I can ride ANOTHER day. Yes $ factor is hard to swallow at times and than you never look back other times when 20 or 30 bucks gives you the safest equipment possible. Easy choice.
Safe safe safe & cool in my opinion.
Size so I have heard as why should have bought a Smith or a pic, or or, well size is in noticeable, weight in noticeable, cool factor ?? It is cool cool as any other helmet when ur sweating your ass off.
