Vespa has just released two new helmets, the VJ and VJ1 models. Both helmets are true Vespa products: they combine modern features with retro style. The VJ and VJ1 models both have a feature that you don’t see very often today – this would be the retractable sun visor. More importantly, they both are compact enough to fit inside the under-seat storage compartments on most scooters. Click through for more details.
Vespa’s new VJ and VJ1 Helmets offer the best of both worlds – modern features and materials wrapped up in traditional open-face styling.
Ideal for urban use, the new helmets feature a demi-jet design for all-round vision on congested streets in towns and cities, and are compact enough to fit inside the under-seat storage compartments on most scooters, as well as in top boxes and side cases.
Unlike many traditional open face lids, both the VJ and VJ1 feature a retractable sun visor. The VJ also comes with a full-length clear external visor as standard for added protection against the weather, dust and dirt thrown up from busy roads.
Safety is taken care of by a strong and lightweight ABS shell, fully approved to the current ECE2205 safety standard. Both the VJ and VJ1 are held firmly in place by a micro-adjustable seatbelt-style strap and fastener. This is quick-release system, so there’s no fiddling around when your destination is reached.
A breathable textile lining keeps the rider comfortable and cool in the heat of the city, and it’s removable and washable.
Finished with a stylish chrome rim and a subtle Vespa logo on the front, both the VJ and VJ1 will look the part on any retro ride.
The VJ comes in sizes XS to XL and available in Black, White, Grey and Red while the VJ1 also comes in XS-XL and is available in Black, White and Blue. If you don’t find the VJ retro enough, see this one: SOXON SP-325 Imola – ITALY Jet Sport Urban Vintage Vespa Pilot helmet creme Gr. L
