Vemar Helmets

I was looking at helmets at the Motorcycle Trade Expo and liked the look of the Vemar lids, has anyone got any feedback on them?

Thumbs up Beg Borrow Steal- just get It

Bought the Vemar VSREV late last year from Extreme Supply , sad day for my new shoei have not worn it since. The Vemar is alot queiter with noticably less drag front and side on when turning your head easier on the neck muscles, The difference at higher speeds is even more pronounced . I normally wear 57 and found the Vemar size "small " perfect
I think the shape must better suited in forward riding stance of the F4 . Sorry to sound like a salesman but this is the best helmet I have owned so far , Will be buying the Vemar Carbon next time the NZ $ reaches a good level .

.

Cheers for the info Chris,
In March we are opening an MV dealership in Derbyshire, UK, so we are looking at leathers, helmets etc. I especially liked the look of the Vemar lids and the BKS leathers so I am just trying to get some feedback on how people rate them.

Cool

I'm biased and hesitant to go with one of the "cheaper" brands, so I stick with the Corsair (2) and AGV's TiTech (1 Ago replica), none of which incidentally give me the "perfect" fit.

Oh well...

I have a Shoei x-11, but the carbon Vemar looks very tempting. Anyone has any crash ratings for Vemar?

I have the Vemar Carbon and I love it.. only problem with it is that it feels like its not really covering the chin area.

But.. since then i purchased an OGK-FF5 and i love it more. The looks are great as well as fit and finish.. it's very comfortable and has excellent air flow. The visor is very easy to remove and reattach. It looks and feels like a better helmet than anything i've had before.

The Vemar does have an amazing interior.. feels like suede.

I have a Vemar Carbon and would highly recommend it -super-light, very aerodynamic and extremely comfortable.

I lowsided my F4 at Pacific Raceways in Auburn, WA, while wearing my carbon VSR. It split at the chin when I hit the ground or air fence, I don't know. I walked away from it, well walked to the ambulance, so I guess it did it's job. I probably gave myself a concussion but my cat scan the next day showed I was ok.

That count as a crash rating?



by the way, the carbon on the chin is only 1 maybe 2 layers thick
