Kask Helmets

I am pleased to announce that I have added a new sponsor to my family of supporters!

I arrived in Santa Monica a week ago, so pumped to start training again.  The first thing I saw when I looked up to the stairs of my apartment, were two huge boxes of the FINEST helmets in the world.

I was excited when I heard Kask wanted to sponsor me. I had heard about how amazing they were in terms of comfort and performance. The same product worn by  Team Sky in the tour de france. Top notch products, 100% made in Italy. Other then that, I had been riding with team mate Jenny Fletcher who had only great things to say about the helmets.

Kask have been in the helmet industry for 15 years and is newer to the triathlon world where they are making a BOOM. From Safety, Ski, Horseback and cycling helmets. They have been dominating in several fields for years.

So, that all being said, I am ready to go out there and ride with the best combination of performance and protection available on the market and that is SUPER motivating.

Needless to say, even though it was midnight when I arrived in Santa Monica, I tore those two boxes of helmets open and checked out my triathlon presents (they sent me 7 helmets and are preparing –special ones- for race season. I’ll keep that a surprise for now… ;)

Of course, I couldn’t wait to give them all a test ride, I did my first ride this week with the Mojito helmet and absolutely LOVED it. It felt weightless and fit like a glove because like most of their helmets it is adjustable horizontally and vertically, so it –hugs- your skull as it adjusts to fit in the curve under your occipital bone.…+ it looked hot (you know that counts too!!).

The level of comfort is also increased by the fact that only the padded area is in contact with the head (vs 70% contact in a regular helmet).

I also took the Mojito for a spin! Absolutely loved it, it is smaller and is perfect for riding in heat conditions

The K.31  TT helmet is simply AMAZING, 100% adjustable, Super light and definitely ultra aero with the visor.

The K10 same fit and adjustment as the K.31 TT helmet sits lower on the head then the Vertigo, for a more aerodynamic profile.

Finally the K50

And then, there is the URBAN helmet. Most stylish to sport around Santa Monica on route to a day at the beach.
