The lightweight Rapido helmet has the distinctive sleek Kask looks made famous by Team Sky using its top-end lids.
This Italian-made, race-style helmet has 24 vents to keep you cool, which are located to optimise aerodynamics for a fast ride, although this hard to notice on the road.
The hinged rear retention system, which slides up and down the rear straps, looks cumbersome and clunky. In use it actually works well and is easily adjusted with the large twist dial adjuster.
The side straps are adjustable with lock-down buckles, but the webbing isn’t as soft as some at this price.
The Rapido has thoroughbred race styling that will work for a wide range of head sizes and shapes, and is a solid performer with pro team styling without the lofty price tag to match.
Kask offers a three-year 50 percent off a crash replacement policy.
