BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (BRAIN) — Quality Bicycle Products has reached a distribution agreement with 6D Helmets LLC. QBP will be responsible for global aftermarket distribution and sales of 6D's full range of bicycle helmets.

6D Helmets entered the bicycle market three years ago with products featuring its patented Omni-Directional Suspension technology, a suspended dual-liner system that the comapny said reduces energy transfer to the brain during crash impact. Last year 6D introduced the ATB-1T Trail helmet, a 3/4 coverage mountain bike helmet with ODS technology. The helmet was named Mountain Accessory of the Year at the 2016 Interbike.

"Partnering with QBP allows our young brand to immediately plug into a vast dealer network and to service our retail partners more effectively and efficiently. We're excited to work with their distribution team and couldn't be more pleased with the relationship," said Bob Weber, CEO and co-founder of 6D Helmets.

Mike Pederson, QBP's helmet category manager, said, "QBP is excited to add the 6D helmet line to our helmet selection. The ODS helmet protection technology sets the standard for bike helmet head and brain protection."
