And now for something completely out of the ordinary . . . . a motorcycle helmet that opens from the back. Designed by an Australian company, the Vozz RS 1.0 is an innovative helmet that is hinged at the top, allowing the rider to put their head into the helmet and snap it closed at the back. No more annoying ear folding and if you wear glasses, you shouldn’t have to remove them to put your helmet on.

This design also eliminates the need for a chin strap. Where the strap would be there is an adjustable chin cup instead.To improve impact results, the helmet comes with a multi-density EPS liner with ultra low-density areas.

The Vozz RS 1.0 offers several comfort and safety advantages. Should an accident occur, the rear access of the helmet, along with its safety release system, allows paramedics to remove the helmet more easily and without having to cut it off. There is even a QR code that paramedics can scan for instructions on how to use the release system.

The helmet is DOT-certified and it comes with an 80 per cent tinted visor that cannot shift while riding at high speeds due to its close fit. The helmet weighs in at 1,680 grams and it is available in three different shell sizes so that wearers don’t have to rely on the different thickness of padding to ensure a good fit.

For now, Vozz RS 1.0 is marketed to motorcycle riders, but the company said it is working on additional applications.
