From a safety standpoint, nicely done.

I really like the benefits of this helmet, especially reduced winter draft and emergency responder removal option (if they know about it). :?: Only down side for me is how to drink my coffee and smoke a cigar! :lol:

Some interesting features, particularly the emergency removal, which does not put any stress on the neck when removed, unlike most helmets.

Of course, it depends on the first responders knowing how to get it off. A vast majority of them today will look at this thing, and stand around scratching their heads trying to figure out where the chin strap is.

I've never had the situation occur as victim or responder, but I think its easy to see how much more gentle helmet removal will be with this helmet. I can't imagine trying to support a probable spinal injury and remove a full face helmet. Even my Scorpion modular has issues with the inflatable liner; its purge button is on the back of the collar and pretty much hidden in most positions. I rarely inflate it but it can get snug if you ride up from a much lower altitude and then it can grip kind of tight. I may be a customer for VOZZ sooner than later, if not just for a more wind sealed cold weather helmet. I'll bet they modify the hinge pin to make it removable without a screw driver; I think that would be a very smart update.

I like the idea of less wind coming up from below in the wintertime. I also like the idea of no chin strap. Sometimes I pull mine a bit tight but it doesn't really bother me until I'm a few miles down the road. :lol:

Hopefully they'll be available locally before too much longer and I'll have a chance to look at one in the flesh.
