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.
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.

The company claims its patented “Voztec System” has improved aerodynamics, no buffeting, no visions impairment, no neck compression and no neck restriction issues.
