Kask Vertigo Special helmet review£165.00

Comfy helmet with some high-end touches

BikeRadar score4.5/5

Kask's Vertigo helmet is instantly comfortable. Its well cushioned triple density pads are heavily perforated and fit is spot on.

The rear retention system cantilevers down lower than anything else, gripping the base of the skull very firmly indeed, with heaps of lateral adjustment and a rotary dial for tightening. High-density rubber pads avoid any discomfort from the hard plastic fittings too.

The moulded-in shell extends well in to the helmet for excellent durability and extra protection, and it’s very neatly finished. The light fabric straps have a thin textured leather lining on each side, and the chinstrap is all soft white leather that is ultra secure, more comfortable than you’d expect, and allows a little give for a comfy fit.

The vents are smaller than some helmets, but there’s good ventilation from low on the brow that is quite even all over, making the helmet easy to wear for long rides without excess heat or pressure.

Its overall weight is very respectable, considering the extra shell covering, extensive rear cradle and overall toughness of the helmet.
