Aren't we ALL getting older?!
After researching as far as I could on this new helmet, my main concern with this design is its similarity to a French made helmet a few of my road-racing friends had back in the early '80s. That helmet was also 'strapless' by virtue of a double closure around the neck - one 'trap-door' pivoted at the rear base of the helmet and the other from the chinguard, using the space about where you'd expect the soft lower (rubber) rim of most current helmets to be. To close it you would fold the rear closure into place and then close the front , with a flush-mounted push button on either side above the split seam to release the center mounted latch. It seemed like a pretty ingenious design (for the time!), but was pulled from the US market before the 6 month mark. Rumors were that someone basically had a 'face-plant' type accident and nearly was decapitated or broke his neck or something along those lines due to the 'guillotine' effect, prompting the race sanctioning bodies to ban them from competitive sports - I heard a few even went as far as banning any alternative attachment methods outside the 3 standard styles of webbed locking straps (no quick-release/ seatbelt push-latch either!) without long term public testing/ proof that it was just as safe or better.
That said, by design and major advancements in material and manufacturing standards, this should be a much safer product. The chin cup should reduce/ eliminate the 'guillotine', although it could also potentially break or dislocate the jaw if impacted in the same manner as the other helmet - only time and a few real-world tests (accidents) will tell!! Unfortunately, Vozz may never get the exposure it truly deserves though, because it might never get placed on the heads of Rossi, Lorenzo, Rea, Davies, nor any of the other racers in the world, at least for a while. That's because most race sanctioning bodies require Snell Foundation testing and, unless Snell has revised their standards on such, they require a 'chin-strap' and single piece shell for testing. That's why you don't see Snell certs on flip-front helmets. Even if they don't have a current test or allowance for a rear-entry such as this, if approached with the proof of post-accident safety factors, etc, I'm sure the Foundation would at least devise a way to test them and/or work with Vozz to make it (or the RS 2.0?) a Snell certified lid, but that takes time (and money)!
As much as I do like the concept/ design, without Snell certification and a price point of around 650USD, it would fall outside of my allowable limits, as I'm sure it would for many others as well. With it being a new/ first gen product, I'll just sit back and watch and see how effectively it does its job. I would also hold out for a more dual-sport/ adventure style shell (hint hint!) - after all that is what we ride...
