Vemar Helmets’s origins are set in Italy, in the early 80s by the division of a company already operating for over a decade in the field of composites.
The company earned experience and product awareness on motorcycle helmets as OEM company during the early years.
In 40 years of experience more than 50 professional riders have been racing with our helmets. We’ve been honored with 5 company awards and 36 championship victories.
The company was founded in 1959 by Bill Simpson. Its manufacturing facility is located in New Braunfels, Texas.
A line of Simpson helmets has been in production since 1979, the basic design was revised and renamed the Bandit.
Our company played an important role in the developpement and improvement of the motorcycle version, the Venom, adding new features like the sun visor and obtaining both ECE and DOT safety certifications.
