    Default Vozz Helmet RS 1.0 - Strapless helmet!

    The Vozz RS 1.0 Helmet claims to be a revolution in the world of helmets. The revolutionary aspect of this helmet is that it doesn't use a chinstrap to secure the helmet. Instead the helmet has a hinge function at the back of the helmet which allows the rider to secure it from the sides even while wearing riding gloves.

    The Australian Helmet company has been working on this design for the last decade and have spent countless hours testing it and ensuring that the product is different from every other helmet, while at the same time being as safe if not safer than the conventional helmets. The company now holds patents and trademarks in multiple countries of the world including, Australia, USA, Japan, China and Europe. Only after this long period of development and paperwork, Vozz has finally launched the helmet.

    Unlike conventional helmets, the RS 1.0 isn't slid onto the top of the head and fastened at the chin. Instead, the helmet splits into two parts with the hinge at the top rear. When the helmet splits it leaves sufficient space for the helmet to easily encompass the head, after which the helmet is shut closed from the rear bottom.

    Innovation is always good, however, what better protection does this new hinge operation offers compared to our tried and tested D-ring strap? Also how well will they able to accommodate different head shapes? Regarding ease of use, if they have hinge lock on either side, then I need to use both hands to remove the helmet, while for traditional helmet, I can at least remove using one hand.

    It doesnt provide any better protection, its merely a different step from teh conventional way of Securing the Helmet on your head.

    How will they accommodate different shapes? Just like how teh current helmets accommodate the various head shapes > Different Size of helmets

    Do you use your other hand to do something else while you undo the helmet strap? What kind of justification is that? Whats the problem in using 2 hands?

    If you want to know what the benefits that this helmet design may provide, read the complete article that is linked.

    after wearing a strap waala helmet for more than a decade, it will feel very odd wearing one without a strap

    and those who have outward flaring ears, need to be careful of the potential pinch point :O

    Finally an end to the messy hair I enter my office in... On a serious note, correct size is even more important for this helmet as compared to the traditional one. With straps, people can do away with loose-ish helmets. This one needs to be an exact fit to the head otherwise it might just slip through the head.

    Another good thing about this helmet is the easy removal in case of an accident without harming the rider's (already injured) head.

    Neat.
    Variety is most welcome.
    And by the looks of it in the video, the helmet appears to be light weighted.

    But would it be at par with the d link strap ?
    I think it will be the next best thing to a full face helmet i.e it will attract those who are looking for a modular helmet... What say?
