A new type of motorcycle helmet should be taking over the streets in the near future: rear-entry helmets.
Reportedly, rear-entry helmets will offer a better fit for motorcycle riders. In addition, they're supposedly safer and are specifically designed so that emergency personnel can remove them easily when crashes occur.
How It Works
These helmets aren't interesting just because they look cool, after making initial adjustments to the helmet's chin cup, users simply press two buttons to open the helmet, then slip their head in for a snug fit.
Multiple sizes and options ensure a comfortable fit. The rear entry allows for a better fit around the jawline, which helps the helmet perform better at high speeds.
Specific Helmet Advantages
Due to the unique design, this type of helmet has a rolled chin bar, allowing a closer fit to the jaw lane, creating less snag points than conventional helmets.
The emergency safety release system and adjustable chin cup are the main differences between this helmet and others. Vozztec's makers insist that these changes significantly improve the safety of riders.
Dangers Facing OC Motorcyclists
It's no secret that motorcycles are dangerous, but in Orange County, riding a motorcycle can be extremely hazardous to your health. Motorcyclists argue that motorists in Orange County simply do not take the time to notice motorcyclists, resulting in a lot of collisions.
Unfortunately, updated OC motorcycle accident statistics are hard to come by. However, according to the California Highway Patrol's (CHP) traffic records system, eighteen motorcyclists lost their lives and seven hundred and ninety-six were injured in Orange County collisions in the year 2010.
When You Can Get One
There is no release date scheduled at the moment, but a little research reveals that Vozz helmet's online shopping is opening up on January 10th. The manufacturers of these helmets have been working on making one since 2005. Let's hope it won't take them much longer to get them in the hands of California riders.
