Check Out This Vozz Strapless Motorcycle Helmet

A company called Vozz is turning motorcycle safety on its head. The brand has developed a new helmet called the RS 1.0 with a one-of-a-kind strapless design that goes on your head like a clamshell.

The main benefit of this design is ease of removal by emergency responders in case of an accident. However, that raises the question, are all emergency responders going to know how to take these things off? Everybody knows how to remove a strap or just cut it off, this is a unique design.

Vozz did plan for that by putting a QR code on the side of the helmet that gives instructions on how to safely remove a helmet, but that sounds like it would take a lot more time than removing a strap. However, as demonstrated in the video below, it can be removed while keeping the rider’s back straight which would be beneficial in an accident with a back injury.

Other benefits include less wind noise since the shell of the helmet can go under your chin, ease of taking on and off while wearing glasses, and it’s almost impossible for it to fall off unintentionally since it creates a more solid seal around the bottom of your head. To me, the most convenient part of the clamshell design is being able to put it on and take it off easily while wearing gloves.

The Vozz RS 1.0 has only been on the market for a couple weeks, but Vozz is hoping to have a helmet on the track in MotoGP within 16 months.

The new helmet is DOT and ECE 22/05 certified and it’s available for purchase right now in eight colors. With the current exchange rate, it costs $609.81 USD which makes it competitive with some top-of-the-line helmets from proven, experienced brands.

Here's a video of Motorcycle News talking George Richardson of motorsport product distributor Helmet 28 demonstrating the virtues of what could be a revolutionary new helmet.
