Tried and Tested – Vemar Hurricane

The Hurricane is the top of the range helmet from recently-resurrected brand Vemar (see page 36). A full-face sports helmet, it is made from Maxx-3C, a high strength and lightweight compound of carbon, kevlar and fibreglass. The shell, which comes in two sizes, has been honed in a wind tunnel to reduce air resistance and minimise turbulence at speed and has been shaped at the rear to clear a racing hump or airbag. The first thing you notice is how tight it is to put on – it’s a bit of an ear-mangler! But once on it is comfortable and secure, with the removable and washable liner providing a snug feel. This might also help when it comes to noise reduction – the Hurricane is commendably free from annoying whistles and intrusive roar. The helmet lives up to its claims of aerodynamic prowess, with little or no buffeting being apparent on my A-road commute. The current warm and wet weather also put the venting to the test, with the chin and top inlets and rear exhaust being supplemented by the ability to position the visor a few millimetres open. The damp climate also made me glad to see the provision of a Pinlock Max Vision insert in the box to prevent the anti-scratch coated visor from fogging. Available in plain white, matt black or a range of graphics in sizes XS-2XL (53-63cm). SRPs start from £229.99.
