|Full Face Helmet Comparisons|
|Full Face VEXON Helmet|
|Full Face Conventional Helmet|
Please note the differences between both helmets.
(The modification made to the Vexon Helmet maintains its structural integrity).
- The side rims of the view window of the Vexon helmet are further back than the conventional helmet, allowing an unobstructed peripheral view. They slant backwards and then at about eye level, angle forward to the top rim, unlike the rounded configuration of conventional helmets. This significantly eliminates the eyes from focusing on the side rims and the padding of the helmet when looking out of the view window at the sides.
- The step-down cutouts to the lower rim of the view window below each eye helps to improve frontal view. These step-down cutouts widen the view window from top to bottom, unlike the conventional helmet. The helmet's visor has been modified to improve peripheral vision. These step-down cutouts work in conjunction with the configuration of the side rims of the view window to improve peripheral view.
- The Vexon helmet's shell has narrowed portions at the sides at eye level, contributing to enhancing peripheral vision. These narrowed portions resurface at the middle of the helmet. The inner padding thickness of this helmet meets DOT standards.
- A DOT/SNELL helmet was modified to incorporate the Vexon's unique features.
