Kask Valegro - Red
Description of Kask Valegro Helmet - Red
At Tour de France 2017, Froome, Kwiatkowski, Landa and their team-mates are competing in the new Kask Valegro, developed in partnership with Team Sky.
The new Valegro's key features are its cutting-edge ventilation system, its super lightweight compact design, its superb fit and rider comfort. With 36 air intakes, resulting in a head-to-pad contact area up to 70% less than some conventional helmet designs, Valegro's temperature management performance is unmatched. The profile of Valegro's polycarbonate shell has been tested and refined by Kask’s engineers in conjunction with a wind-tunnel to get the best results in terms of thermo-cooling performance.
Hand in hand with advanced ventilation is Valegro's impressive weight. In conjunction with advanced materials and the new ventilation-optimised design, a brand new moulding technology has enabled Kask’s design team to provide Team Sky with a super lightweight version, weighing just 180 g – a feature always high on top level racers’ list of demands!
Valegro's new breathable and quickdry padding, including a 5mm layer of fast-wicking material that takes moisture away from the rider’s head and moves it to the helmet’s outer shell, contribute to a helmet that’s comfortable to wear, all day, and especially on those long, tough, hot climbs through the Alps and Pyrenees.
Along with unique features such as new front and rear sunglasses garages, Valegro takes rider comfort to another level, so there are no distractions from the race itself. Like all Kask helmets, the Valegro is designed, manufactured and tested to the highest safety criteria, so top level racers can concentrate in the job in hand – winning races.
