Predator Motorcycle Helmet Laser


You've most likely seen the original Predator motorcycle helmet released a few years ago, but now Nitrinos has updated it with a 3-point laser module. To be more specific, these aluminum encased red lasers - up to 5mW - are visible in fog or smoke when activated. For those wondering if this is safe? "Lasers with such power don't hurt the retina. LASERs are switched by means of a microsized button at the bottom of the helmet. Two AAA batteries shall be used in order to switch the lasers," according to the company. Besides that feature, these helmets still have 22 dreadlocks, a 4-channel adjustable ventilation system, and a quick-release visor system.

Vozz Helmet

Say goodbye to uncomfortable (and unsafe) motorcycle helmets, and hello to the "Vozz Helmet". Rather than pulling it over your head and using a chin strap, this design splits vertically into two sections that pivot around a hinge, which lock in place using a little pressure. Once locked into place, it fits perfectly and can't be accidentally removed, ensuring a tighter fit as well as more chin coverage. All of this means less aerodynamic lift at higher speeds, and additional heat insulation for cooler weather. Should you be involved in an accident, the helmet can easily be separated into two parts, making it possible for removal without moving the neck or applying pressure to the head.
