Seems like the safest option.

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Coverage, style, adjustability, technology, safety

The Bad:

Warmer than my old S-Works XC helmet but that was to be expected.

Overall Review:

I recently went down with the XC helmet, cracking the shell which prompted me looking into a new helmet. I've always been more of a trail/DH/park rider but had the XC helmet for a long time and figured I'd wear it until something happened. Well it did, and it got me looking into a more safe option designed for my preferred riding style. I looked into most of the MIPS helmets and while that is a step forward from non-MIPS, I just felt that the ODS system from 6D made sense and provided more protection than MIPS. 

The not so great: When looking in a mirror it gives you the impression of the attached photo, but that's just the first impression I had.  I haven't seen anyone wreck on the trail from staring at the helmet so maybe it's not so bad.   It is a little warmer than my XC S-works helmet but it's been in the 90's with ~150% humidity so there's that.  

It certainly gives me added confidence on the trail knowing that if my head hits the ground or tree or low flying planes it'll be okay.  I love the colors and adjustability of the straps and pads that were included.  And it's not noticeably heavier than my XC helmet so I wouldn't let that deter you from buying.

More Info

6D’S ODS Energy Management Technology

6D’s patented Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) technology is a fully active, in-helmet suspension and kinetic energy management system. Engineered to uncouple the helmet’s exterior shell from the inner EPS liner, the system effectively mitigates energy transfer to the head and brain of the rider during any given accident or impact event.

  • 2 separate EPS liners separated by an array of elastomeric isolation dampers
  • 3-dimensional displacement of the inner liner upon impact
  • Reduces linear and angular acceleration forces to the head and brain
  • Superior performance for low, medium, and high-velocity impacts
  • Increases ‘Time-to-Peak’ values by roughly double (lessens severity)
