Helmets. There's a lot out there. Getting your helmet right will keep you comfortable and safe.
Kask make a wide range of helmets including skiing, work and construction, search and rescue to name a few so they should know what they are doing when it comes to making a product to protect your head. La Velocita has been testing the Kask alongside other helmets.
About - The Kask Majito is made in Italy by Kask, it is the lightest helmet in their range weighing in at 220 grams and crams 26 air intakes making this helmet super cool in the summer. It comes in a range of colours and includes high visibly stickers on the helmet and chin strap. We liked the look of the Mojito, it has a lower profile so is not too 'bulbous'.
Quality - Out of the box the Mojitio feels like a quality product, it is well finished and the straps are high quality with a washable non-allergic imitation leather chin strap that feels comfortable against the skin.
Adjustment - The rear dial adjustment works with a sure and solid feel with small sizing increments to get just the right hold. The Mojito held on tight with the chin strap undone to multiple heads when leaning upside down.
Ride - In use we found the Mojito very easy to get along with. The lightness is noticeable as soon as you put it on, the airflow is excellent and keeps your head cool but not cold. While riding there was close to no movement from the Mojito, it held in place well and was quick to adjust when we had to put a cap underneath on cold mornings. One of our testers had a small issue getting the arms of their sunglasses under the side of the Mojito, maybe something to check out before you jump to buy.
Sizes - Medium (48-58cm), Large (59-62cm)
Price - at around $200 the Kask the Kask is not an entry level budget conscious helmet. For you money you get a very light, high quality product that does its job well.
Overall - The Mojito is a great offering from Kask, the quality and the thought that has gone into the adjustment system is impressive and the lightness and airflow make this a product the La Velocita team enjoyed testing.
