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; in Black, White, Grey and Red and sells for £129.99. The VJ1 also comes in XS-XL; in Black, White and Blue and retails at £115.99.
