Redefining your expectations of an entry-level road cycling helmet, the 2014 Kask Rapido offers a light, well designed helmet for the fraction of the price.
The Rapido is as nimble as the name suggests. Tipping our scales at 215 grams for a medium(a touch lighter than the official 224 grams that Kask state), the Kask Rapido is the lightest helmet that Kask have made to date, which will appeal to those weight conscious riders looking to save grams at every possible opportunity. The Rapido follows in the footsteps of the Mojito and Vertigo by offering sleek and subtle styling, without the bulky appearance of many other helmets, which further boosts the feeling of weightlessness.
The 24 large vents found on the Rapido help to circulate air through the helmet, releasing warm air out from the rear vents, leaving your head cool and fresh, perfect for long summer rides. The inside of the Rapido is lined with removable pads, for easy cleaning, leaving no excuses for having anything but a clean and fresh smelling helmet.
The retention system on the Rapido pivots to allow for up and down adjustments as well as tension around the head via the easy to use adjustment dial located on the rear of the helmet. The pivot system enables you to position the retention system in the correct position, just below the occipital bone, perfectly cradling your head, for a feeling of reassuring comfort.
The Rapido features Kask's In-Mold technology that joins the inner polystyrene cap to the outer polycarbonate shell, for enhanced impact absorption without adding any extra weight.
100% Italian made, the Rapido looks and feels like a helmet worth much more than its entry-level price. A superb value helmet suitable for all levels of rider. The Kask Rapido is available in Black, White and Red. In Sizes M (52-58) and L (59-52).
