Kask Mojito helmet review£120.00

If it’s good enough to win the Tour de France…

BikeRadar score5/5

Kask has a reputation for superb fit, and the cheaper Mojito isn't going to do it any harm. Every base is covered – there’s just enough padding in the right places and the superb shape suits a wide range of heads.

The almost-total coverage from the moulded-in external shell leaves almost nothing susceptible to transit or riding damage, and Kask’s excellent cantilevered rear cradle design with slimmer rubber pads works for every head shape.

The lightweight woven straps don’t have leather lining like those of the more-expensive Vertigo, but they do have an adjustable three-way clasp, and the white leather chin strap remains.

It’s a compact helmet, appealing to the larger of head (and a certain Chris Froome) but it sits low across the temple and brow and has good rear coverage.

A host of small vents give a consistently even breeze throughout, with large vertical rear vents drawing cooling air through effectively, making the Mojito feel lighter than it is – which is a bonus on lengthy rides.

Robin began road cycling in 1988, and with mountain bikes in their infancy, mixed experimental off-road adventures with club time trials and road races. Cyclocross soon became a winter staple, and has remained his favourite form of competition. Robin has always loved the technical aspect of building and maintaining bikes, and several years working in a good bike shop only amplified that. Ten years as a Forensic Photographer followed, honing his eye for detail in pictures and words. He has shot at the biggest pro events since the '90s, and now he's here, drawing on all those experiences to figure out what makes a bike or component tick.
