Ron, concussion IS brain damage - but maybe not lasting eh?

I had concussion once, once,once,once,once (slaps head), with no lasting effects other than I can't remember a thing about that day, even 45 years later. It split my openface Shoei helmet completely in two, when after being t-boned by a car  I did the usual 'man out of a cannon' trajectory and picked a high concrete curb edge to use as a pillow for a short nap.

Have used a Schuberth S2 sport for a few months now. Very light, quiet and great flip down tint visor.

Ear padding is a tight fit so putting it on needs a bit of wiggling to make sure the lobes are not caught up. Once in though, it is comfortable and I rate it best helmet ever.

Tried on a Vozz helmet today. They only had one in the store (had to travel to Ballarat), and it was a large. Looks like their sizing is slightly smaller than Shoei, so I have to go for an XL. And I have to wait till February to get it. It WILL be worth it.

Good Luck with that Razz I rang and talked to the boss last Christmas and was told the xl's would be ready in February, maybe he meant 2017 Laughing

My Shoei Neo saved my head in June. So that'll do as a good one. My favourite? An old 1950s Italian racing helmet. Utterly useless and positively dangerous but it looked good.

I bought mine from :-  goo.gl/w0FxEq

Bought my C3 Pro in 2014 from Euro somewhere with the bluetooth gizmo as an extra. Exchange rate put it over $1k so I copped another 15% import duties plus 10% GST on top of that.

Since then there is supposed to be an Aussie/NZ importer.

I've been after Vozz for getting a helmet here in California but experience is telling me it's going to be a real slow boat from China. First they have to get DOT to pass it.

Because I wear glasses nearsighted I'm looking at the Vozz as being a big time saver. No more, take the glasses off, put the glasses in a safe place, put the helmet on, put the strap on, put the gasses on, lower the visor for getting on my GRiSO. To get out the the rig I have to raise the visor, take off the glasses, place the glasses in a safe place, take the strap off, take the helmet off then put the glasses back on.

With Vozz it's just put the helmet on ---- take the helmet off. No more glasses falling on the asphalt / concrete, no more carefully putting the glasses on, no more messing with the prehistoric chin strap.

Maybe by July 2017

My favorite helmet for local around town riding is the Monaco Lazer modular helmet. One of the lightest helmets out there, its well vented and it has the transitions auto darkening shield. For high speed interstate travel, I prefer the Scorpion Exo-900 modular helmet, its a little quieter. Its more of a touring or sport touring helmet, but its very long distance comfortable for me. I've had two of the Scorpions, its recently been discontinued and replaced with another model.

I thought they already had DOT & CE. I shall check & report back.

The Vozz is really, really, convenient for those of us who wear glasses. The best thing since sliced bread.

Hey not fishing - I checked again with Vozz & their website - the helmet is already DOT compliant, as well as ECE & AS/NZ.

The word from Vozz last Monday was that a new shipment with ALL sizes & all colours was already on the high seas & due in Oz in a couple of weeks.

In addition to the shell shapes for us lot and Chinese/Japanese they already have, they are also developing a shell shape for Euro heads. I think they are serious about this business.

I've been wearing a AGV Numo EVO Audax Modular.  So far I like it. Longest ride was 200 miles. It's my first modular type helmet.  A little noisy, very comfortable. Quiet with ear plugs.

I have Arai, and Shoei helmets, but they don't color match the GRiSO.

I thought the Vozz Owners were of European Ancestry!

Unlucky for  me I have a Scottish blockhead and wear an XXL in Scorpion.  we need a "blockhead" size

I wonder if Vozz will sell one to California, DOT or not. I'll only use it off-road......

Check with them by email again. In person, at least, they have been very obliging & have provided excellent service.

A new helmet for the Trackie. AGV Pista GP R. It is absolutely amazing as far as visibility goes. Very Light , stable, doesn't seem too loud, but I wear earplugs anyway.

I put a deposit on a Vozz helmet yesterday and was told by the dealer that Vozz is offering $230 AUD off if you bring in an helmet with an AS 19-- approval sticker as a trade in. Drops the price from $888 to $649. I'm getting and X Large in red to match the bike.
