In January I did a write up on the newly released VOZZ Helmet. It's a quality helmet and unique in that it uses no chin strap. Instead the two main parts of the helmet are hinged and lock together once the helmet is put on.
A few months ago I received from VOZZ the following email -
"We are sure you are enjoying your new lid, with its great aerodynamics, vison and ease to take on and off. Since your purchase, the VOZZ RS1.0 has undergone a few changes based on rider feedback.
We have a new improved comfort lining, foils either side on both locking covers, superior rubber compounds, improving seal and extraneous wind noise. We wouldn’t want you to miss out on these improvements to the RS1.0, so we would like to offer you this brand new lid in exchange for your old VOZZ. We are also offering you the opportunity if your helmet was not the perfect fit to select your preferred size."
Incredible? I thought so. Any chance of Henry III sending you an email saying how the 2016 Ford has been improved on the 2015 model and so they want to exchange your car for the improved version?
The modifications include "a new improved comfort lining, foils either side on both locking covers, superior rubber compounds, improving seal and extraneous wind noise. Based on this we have also been able to complete our wind-tunnel testing and our data is currently being complied".
On Thursday I received another email saying that the new shipment had arrived and that I should send the rear part of my existing helmet to them.
Today I received a box -
In the box was a box -
In that box was another helmet bag. (The best I have ever seen).
I will let you know how the improved version compares once I have been out for a ride. Improving an already impressive product will be a challenge. The finish, liner materials, assembly and visor fit of the original were, I thought, quite outstanding.
VOZZ have recently announced the appointment of a Canadian distributor of their helmet - VOZZ Helmets Distributor Announcement Canada
However VOZZ do seem to have been affected by manufacturing delays - no doubt made worse by their desire to improve the product on the run.
