Australian Company Revolutionises Helmet Technology
14 Mar 2016
VOZZ Helmets are hinged, providing rear access, removing the chinstrap, adding safety, comfort and convenience
After a decade of research and development, Voztec Helmets Pty Ltd is excited to announce the limited release of their revolutionary motorcycling helmet.
VOZZ Helmets are industry certified and approved for use on motorcycles in Australia, New Zealand, Europe (ECE) and North America (DOT).
“Our company’s rationale is a simple one. We create and deliver innovative helmets that increase the comfort, safety and performance of people in high-risk activities,” explains Mark Bryant, Managing Director of VOZZ Helmets.
When fitted, the helmet appears like any other stylish high-performance product. The difference is that the helmet has a hinge on the back, allowing the rider to quickly insert their head and snap the helmet closed at the back. This new design eliminates the chinstrap while adding extra chin protection, greater head movement for the rider and a snug shell without the need to heave your head through the padding.
Locally designed in Australia, the helmet is a tri-composite construction that delivers a ride with no buffeting, no chin strap, no vision impairment, no neck compression and no neck restriction issues. Mr Bryant claims “We believe it is close to the perfect bike helmet and we quite literally believe we will make the traditional pull on, pull off helmet extinct.”
The Australian based team is not limiting its research and development to motorcycling helmets. “Our design does not compromise the safety of the helmet, in fact it adds safety features, while eliminating the tiresome and often uncomfortable task of fitting them. We are working to bring our innovation to all corners of the helmet industry,” states Mr. Bryant.
Launched in December 2015, the VOZZ motorcycling helmets are already attracting global interest from bike enthusiasts, stockists and fleet managers. “Our safety certifications remove the need for conversations regarding protection and so we’ve begun engaging in a new dialogue with people and organisations looking at the benefits the hinge fitment provides. Interestingly we’ve had a number of expressions of interest from police forces looking for a helmet that allows speedy fitment and removal,” explained Mr. Bryant.
VOZZ Helmets (Australian and New Zealand certified) are available on a limited release from the VOZZ website with globally certified stock releasing in June 2016.
About VOZZ Helmets
Voztec Helmets Pty Ltd, the company behind VOZZ Helmets, is based in Sydney, Australia.
The mechanics of the helmet are globally patented and referred to as the Voztec System. It has an emergency safety release system and a fully adjustable chin cup that does away with the old-fashioned chinstrap. These features increase safety by providing medical personnel improved access in case of an accident and allows the lower edge of the helmet to be rolled, thus producing a helmet with far fewer snag points.
The Voztec system can be implemented in any helmet for high-risk activities.

The helmets are priced at AUD$888 (incl. GST) (about $650 USD) which also includes a helmet bag and additional tinted visor (80% tint).
European (ECE) and North American (DOT) stock and dealer locations will be announced in the coming weeks.
