[motorcycledaily.com] - Vozz Helmets: Rear Entry Design is Quick, Snug and Quiet (wit

I remember somebody saying something about simple ideas often being the most brilliant. This thought struck me when I first learned about Vozz Helmets new Voztec System, which results in a helmet that pivots on top and allows the rider to quickly (even with glasses on) put the helmet on, and take it off. Of […]

Why even read this article! The comments speak for themself, "Rear Entry Design is Quick, Snug and Quiet". The helmet must be made for the ladies. Wait a second, are we still talking about helmets? Who writes this stuff?

Rear entry helmet, what do you think?

A lot safer for a paramedic to remove after an accident, more protection, warmer in winter, quieter and more aerodynamic. I wonder if you can leave your eyeglasses on when putting it on or taking it off? Sorry, haven't learned to imbed a video yet. https://youtu.be/lnydMibNojo

I like it. Among some of the other benefits i see the lack of the chin strap is appealing to me for comfort and better fit with a winter jacket or gear...I've had the strap catch on my jacket before. Stubby neck to go with the rest of me.

I would like to see one up close. Curious as to how heavy it may be/feel.

"In the event of an accident, the paramedics can scan these QR codes positioned on the bottom of the helmet here, which lead to a very simple six-step removal... "

Which involves removing screws.

And oh by the way, the QR codes are on the bottom edge of the helmet, so presumably you'd have to move the head to get a clear shot at them.

While you've got a trauma patient on your hands.

What the actual f**k? Can you seriously see that happening?

The one aspect I'm really skeptical about is the reliance on a chin cup to keep the helmet from moving around on your head. With a strap, you can get it nice and tight. With a mobile jaw determining how secure the helmet is, I have to wonder.

Would like to see a helmet fit video where they try to move the helmet around on the head, similar to the Arai videos.

Would be cool to try one of these on. If it passed a basic fit/secureness assessment I'd be very interested.

I am in the market for a new helmet and this looks great! About time somebody got innovative with helmet entry and not just adding fancy features to an age old design like the Skully. Anybody wanna help pay for one and I'll be guinea pig? :P

I would be interested in the safety ratings (I know helmets don't really have a rating system, they either pass a test or they don't) compared to a normal style helmet.

Nice! Who doesn't love innovation? Without forward thinking and creative minds we wouldn't have iPads, GoPros, Skully, SpaceX, etc.. Nothing is perfect in its first iteration but can't wait to see what Vozz will bring to the table in the future. Also as a person that wears glasses, I'd love to put on a helmet without having to take them on and off.
