Kask is a helmet manufacturer – in fact, it only makes helmets, although not all of its range is for cycling. Cycling helmets are what it is best known for, and its helmets are worn by everyone from casual commuters to Team Sky, the world beating champions on many UCI World Tour events. The range of Kask helmets available includes road helmets, mountain bike helmets, and time trial helmets. It is an Italian brand, with the helmets combining high performance and the latest technical innovations, with attention-grabbing designs.
Kask is an Italian manufacturer of helmets. Its main range of helmets is for cycling but it also makes helmets for skiing, outdoor pursuits, and the safety industry. All the helmets it produces are designed and manufactured in Italy.
The company was founded in 2004 so it is a relative newcomer to the sport of cycling. Many of the world's leading cycling brands have, after all, been around for decades. Despite being new, Kask helmets are respected and used by everyday cyclists, as well as the top competitors in cycling’s most demanding competitions.
Kask has achieved this by designing helmets with safety at the top of its priority list as well as aerodynamic performance, high levels of comfort, advanced functionality, and attractive design. The company has an active research and development unit that constantly works to improve the designs, advance the technology, and develop new helmet innovations.
The company develops these helmets to meet the specific needs of the best bike racers in the world. The most high profile is the grand tour winning Team Sky. The features and designs developed in this process are then filtered through to the retail range, many of which you will find here at Bike Exchange. This includes road helmets, mountain bike helmets, time trial helmets, and several helmet accessory options.
Unlike most other cycling manufacturers and brands, Kask does not also offer other products. Instead, it stays focused on its core product area - helmets - devoting all of its resources to making the best possible helmets that it can.
The helmets in the Kask product range have a number of different features, depending on the model you choose. This includes aerodynamic performance, washable inner padding, and structural technologies that ensure maximum levels of protection for the rider.
The categories of helmet are split into the various cycling disciplines:
• Road helmets - the top option in the road range is the Infinity. Other models include the Protone, Vertigo 2.0, Mojito, Mojito Special, Mojito Flag, and Rapido. • MTB helmets - helmets designed for mountain biking. This includes the Vertigo XC and the Rex. • Time trial helmets - the Bambino Pro is designed to maximize speed through its ultra-aerodynamic design.
You can also get helmet accessories from Kask. This includes winter caps and visors.
