The Australian-designed and owned VOZZ Helmet with a unique system that rids the helmet of a chin strap will cost $888.

The tri-composite VOZZ RS 1.0 Helmet splits in two and is hinged at the top with a rear shell opening that makes it easy to put on and take off, even while wearing glasses.VOZZ Helmet

The chin strap is replaced by a fully adjustable chin cup so you don’t have to take off your gloves to fasten it.

The helmet was launched in December and the price has only just been released. For $888 you also get a carry bag and a tinted visor.

Australia and New Zealand approve helmets in sizes medium and large are available now, but riders with S, XS, XL and XXL heads will have to wait until April 2016.

European (ECE) and North American (DOT) stock in all six sizes from XS to XXL will be available in late April.VOZZ Helmet

  1. Looks cool especially since i wear glasses and am looking for a new helmet. A couple of questions for your review.

    1. Can you wire in a Bluetooth comms unit. My current one runs around the back of the Helmet so may not work on this model. Does it have recesses for helmet speakers? Is there space for a Mic at the front?
    2. Is the liner removable and are there different sizes for the liners if so.
    3. What tinted visors are available eg Photo-chromatic or Gold etc.
    4. How heavy is the production model
    5. I know its tri-composite what are the three materials?
    6. With no chin strap D loop is it lockable to a bike?
    7. With a chin cup what is the fogging like? This is a concern of mine in particular. (try it in a large cool room (Fridge) if possible.)
    8. A giant seam on the side – Is the helmet noisy?

    1. Hi again,
      Here are the answers from VOZZ:
      1. Can you wire in a Bluetooth comms unit. My current one runs around the back of the Helmet so may not work on this model. Does it have recesses for helmet speakers? Is there space for a Mic at the front?
      A. We have ear recess and depending on the system may be retro fitted however cannot be put at back of split line in other words on front shell of helmet. Not a factory option from us at this stage. We will continue to develop this type of feature in the future.
      2. Is the liner removable and are there different sizes for the liners if so.
      A. The liners are not removable, cheek pads can be removed and we have 6 fractional fittings of comfort liners with 3 shell sizes. So each shell size has two options for cheek pad size.
      3. What tinted visors are available eg Photo-chromatic or Gold etc.
      A. Clear and 80% tinted visor included no other visors available at present.
      4. How heavy is the production model
      A. 1780 grams for AS/NZ and DOT and 1680 for ECE
      5. I know its tri-composite what are the three materials? Front Shell is Tri Composite = Carbon, Kevlar and Fibreglass with rear shell being high grade ABS.
      6. With no chin strap D loop is it lockable to a bike?
      A. With a plastic coated chain through the chin bar available at most good dealerships.
      7. With a chin cup what is the fogging like? This is a concern of mine in particular. (try it in a large cool room (Fridge) if possible.)
      A. Better than normal full face helmets due to the fact the chin bar is longer than normal helmets which in turn moves the visor further away from mouth and nose reducing fogging, has anti fog treatment as well on visor.
      8. A giant seam on the side – Is the helmet noisy?
      A. No. Extra quiet as split line is sealed with rubber seals. Check out latest FB video.
