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.
