Gearing up to do a track day which would’ve happened at the end of last year’s season had my ZX-6R not been stolen. My Shoei GT-Air is a great street helmet that has a drop-down sun visor so that means it only meets DOT specs and not ECE, making it track-ineligible. I went shopping and tried on a few Icon and HJC lids but they didn’t fit me so well. I also wanted to save a few bucks on this purchase so tried to stay away from Shoei or Arai. Walking around, I spot this thing. Zox? What is this, a helmet for Dr. Seuss characters? Turns out the company has a larger presence in Europe but is moving into NA as well. The salesperson told me it’s a solid helmet and it was in fact quite comfortable. On sale at $225 Canuck bux + tax? Hi-viz accents? Obnoxious ‘Z’ that I want to remove? Sold. Now the countdown to May 4 begins... see you there, Peter.
