“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Hinged helmet lid design

THIS is the just-launched RS 1.0 helmet which features a unique hinged shell system that is going to revolutionize helmet design, claims the maker, Australian company Vozz
The RS 1.0 opens up at the rear, so instead of putting it on like a traditional lid, the shell closes shut over the head before locking together.
Vozz claims that its patented ‘Vozztec’ opening system offers several benefits over traditional full-face helmets. Because the opening at the bottom of the shell doesn’t need to be wide enough to accept a head, Vozz says its helmet offers a much closer fit compared to a traditional lid. Consequently, the RS 1.0 doesn’t have a chinstrap, but instead features an adjustable ‘chin cup.’
The helmet’s maker say its design means reduced wind noise because it’s harder for wind to get inside the helmet and that because of the RS 1.0’s fit and aerodynamic shape, users won’t experience buffeting at high speed.

It’s got DOT and ECE certification, and is certified for use in Australia and New Zealand. Currently it’s only available in Australia and costs $888, but according to the Vozz website and its Facebook page, it will be available elsewhere round the world next year.
