Adequate protective equipment is absolutely essential for a high-speed sport such as motocross. However, helmet technology has progressed very little in recent decades. Bob Weber and Robert Reisinger are both highly experienced motocross riders and wanted to minimize the risk of head injuries resulting from falls. They have developed a completely new technology.
With their “6D Helmets” the two Californians won a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter plus 10,000 dollars to customize their van in the “Drive your business forward” contest held by the American business magazine, Fast Company. The two company founders can now use their new van to visit athletes and their families on location and inform them about their innovative helmets.
