Eagle-eyed readers who have been following Team Sky’s debut will have noticed their unfamiliar choice of helmet. They’re actually Kask helmets, an Italian company which has supplied professional team Barloworld previously.
“We have been pleased to have found a great partner in Kask, supplying top of the line helmets for Team Sky,” said Team Principal Dave Brailsford. “We’re always looking for competitive advantages, using only the best available and always trying to develop the products even further. I believe working with Kask will provide us with another good opportunity to do exactly this.”
“By choosing Kask, Team Sky has made a powerful endorsement of the quality of our helmets and we are looking forward to working with them to secure success for the team,” added Mr Angelo Gotti, President of Kask.
The new Vertigo helmet the team will use – with a custom colour scheme of course – incorporates a unique ‘Up’n’down adjustment’ hinged adjustment system that allows for both size and vertical adjustment, making achieving a comfortable fit easy via the turn-dial.
Cooling is taken care of with 24 vents made possible with a reinforced frame inside the helmet. Inside there are reflective strips on every strap and at the back of the helmet.
The full Kask range is now available in the UK through Active Life Logistics. For details of your nearest stockist contact David Jack on 01299 890101 or alternatively email [email protected]
