A helmet is the first line of defense in crashes, but experts say it lacks flexibility to protect against angular
acceleration, a leading cause of rotational head and brain injuries.
Layers of protection High-impact energy is dispersed Hard composite exterior withstands blunt force and disperses the impact energy. Transfered energy is absorbed Inner EPS layers absorb the high-impact energy transferred from the hard outer layer. Damper technology slows head rotation Dampers connect two EPS liners, allowing the inner liner to move in any direction during impact. This helps prevent the head from rotating.

How the 6D “suspension” technology works 6D Helmets’ technology aims to reduce angular acceleration with flexible isolation “dampers” that reduce head rotation at impact.
