The Ghibli is the second Vemar helmet I’ve reviewed. The first, the Sharki modular, is a pretty good value modular for the money. The Ghibli is an inexpensive full-face helmet, with an MSRP of $139. That is a very appealing price, especially for new riders that are still getting their bearings. Upon arrival, the first question I asked was “is it as good of a value helmet as the Sharki? ”
To test the Ghibli, my wife Melissa wore it throughout the Summer, giving us a pretty good perspective on what the Ghibli is all about.
- DOT & ECE 22.05 certified
- Scratch-resistant visor
- Removable & washable interior liner
- Pinlock- ready
- Micro-ratchet strap
You can get the Ghibli in numerous colors, broken down into two designations: base, and warrior. The base colorways feature simpler graphics and have “VEMAR” boldly printed on each side. The warrior colorways look more, ehh, tactical by comparison.
The Ghibli I have here is the #G020 yellow base colorway.
Comfort, Fit, & Functions
Fit & Comfort
The Ghibli is a tight fit in the size medium (as shown here). There isn’t a lot of play, with noticeable snug points right on the crown of the head. According to Melissa, it isn’t uncomfortable, but it’s not as comfortable as other helmets she’s worn (such as the Bell RS-2).
The Ghibli comes in a single shell, so I imagine that larger sizes may also wear smaller than the chart would imply. I recommend a try-on.
One thing the Ghibli has going for it is its weight, which I measured at 3lbs flat and other reviews have pegged between 3 and 3.25lbs. Since I’m using a digital scale it’s important to note that it may not be objectively accurate. AKA: I measured 3lbs, but don’t hold me to that.
