The 6D Helmets are Packed with Stiff Liquids

Californian label 6D Helmets is aiming to vastly improve athletic safety with its breakout designs. Its helmets are different from the rest in that they go above and beyond the prototypical merger of styrofoam with glue, and have instead made use of a layered framework.

Stuck within the inner divisions of the 6D Helmets are layers of gel. The gel acts as an absorber, taking in shocks from six different points, and it is in this way that the company arrived at its name. And while the slabs do work to take in the impact of crashes, it is more so directed at low speed sports, making it particularly relevant to those who partake in motocross.
