6D’s co-founder and director of engineering, Robert Reisinger explains the design, functionality and real-world application of 6D’s shear-away visor screws on team Geico/Honda’s Zach Bell’s actual helmet from his, now famous, heat race crash at the Dallas Supercross, earlier this year.

The 6D shear-away visor screws are specifically precision manufactured of engineered plastic rather than aluminum or titanium, to allow the screws to shear in the event of a high-stress impact or snag, reducing energy transfer to the head and improving rider safety. The 6D shear-away visor screws are just one more element to 6D’s overall goal of ‘Advanced Impact Defense’.
