■Better fitting for round type head shape

The shape of a human head varies by race, gender, and generation, and therefore varies greatly depending on the region where the helmet is sold and the target user. Many overseas brand helmets often adopt a vertically long oval shape, and in the area of Asian races, which often have a circular (round) head shape with a protruding temporal region, if the size does not match the actual head size, you may experience headaches or discomfort if you wear it forcibly, or you may be forced to wear a helmet that is one size larger to match the size.


Based on the head shape data that Kabuto has collected over the years, VOLZZA has been designed with the optimum shape so that many users can wear it comfortably
