I spotted, in a ChatterBox! ad in the June issue of Sport Rider, a rider wearing a full carbon fiber HJC helmet. Has anyone ever seen one of these helmets on the market or anywhere on the net for that matter? I've done some searching and came up empy handed.

Re: Carbon Fiber HJC Helmet (blkhalo996)

my buddy contemplated buying one, but it was too expensive for him
let me try to dig it up.. (this was a while ago mind you, half a year, it might be a different helmet than that which you speak of)

Re: (dj_wawa)

I just picked up one of the Vemars for $800. HJC, I think? Does make a full carbon one, but for Harley. It is $400+/- but has Harley Davidson printed on the side.

BMW also produces a full carbon helmet, but according to my local BMW dealers, they won't import them into the states because of liablilty.

Re: Carbon Fiber HJC Helmet (dj_wawa)

Vemar makes the helmet and right now Helmet Harbor is the only place I ever seen one for sale. Usually its place your money and wait. Heard it passes DOT/SNELL and BSI but don't quote me on that.

Re: Carbon Fiber HJC Helmet (drthompson65)

The Vemar is DOT and BSI, but not Snell, if memory serves me...I'll have to check when I get home. Comes w/ two visors, and additional pads, and a bag which was nicer than the one which came w/ my Arai RR3

Re: Carbon Fiber HJC Helmet (f4mille)

I got my Vemar carbon at the L.A. motorcycle show from BMW of L.A. The show price was $749. It's the lightest most comforable helmet I've ever owned. It does come with 2 face shields--clear and smoke but ordered an iridium sheild for summer. It's kinduv purple/yellow color.

Re: Carbon Fiber HJC Helmet (mrgrn)

Thanks for the input, guys. Sorry for my late response back,,,been without net due to travel to work.

This helmet in the June issue of Sport Rider, in the ChatterBox! add, is definantly not the Vemar model,,,it could be the one made for Harley by HJC,,,,they might have removed the Harley name from it. It would be ironic if it was one though,,,in the ad, the guy is on a Ducati 998.

Re: Carbon Fiber HJC Helmet (blkhalo996)

Well, I just got a response back from HJC Customer Support,,,this is a new helmet that they are planning to make available to the public this September. I responded back to them with an inquiry on the pirce and specs. If I get anymore information, I'll pass it on.

Why is carbon fiber so damn addictive!!!

Sorry for the late reply. We are moving to a new location and putting our dyno in a trailer so things have been hectic.

If mrgrn can get you the Vemar for $650, go through him because that's even below dealer cost!!! The best price that I can do is $749.95 (plus shipping to you) and we can get it in 1-2 days. Retail is $899.

Gee... I don't know (insert sound of sparky setting down one of the two new pieces of carbon recently purchased here)...
I've seen the Vemar before. Very pretty. If you have a picture of the HJC that could be scanned, I wouldn't mind a peek.

Re: Carbon Fiber HJC Helmet (Latebraker)

How ironic can it be that Harley-Davidson, of all companies, would offer a high-tech carbon fiber helmet! Shouldn't they sell a chrome-plated aluminum helmet instead?

And a full face one at that!
I would have expected a CF beanie.

Re: Carbon Fiber HJC Helmet (AZ Scott)

The MSRP on that helmet is $450, but you could probably buy it for even less since so many Harley riders don't wear helmets let alone full face helmets.
