Review - Kask Valegro Cycling Helmet

Kask Valegro Bicycle Helmet Review
Kask make some of the best bicycle helmets in the world, for some of the best riders in the world; look no further than Team Sky, Wiggle High5, or Jeremy Powers. The Valegro helmet is their latest release, and pushes boundaries in terms of comfort, performance, and Italian style.

The Valegro was developed with input from Team Sky Pro Cycling, and is designed to provide the best comfort and ventilation when cycling in hot conditions, and particularly when climbing mountains at lower speeds.

The shape of the helmet was crafted in the wind-tunnel, but rather than the sole focus being on aerodynamics there was also a consideration of how the airflow was working to cool the head of the rider; looking at creating effective through-flow that encourages cooling and is aerodynamically efficient.

To facilitate "thermo-cooling" Kask have placed 37 ventilation holes on the Valegro helmet, which is more than on their previous models. These vents whip air through the helmet at speed: reducing drag, and increasing the cooling effect.

To compliment the cooling design, Kask have used 5 mm thick fast-wicking, anti-static, and anti-bacterial padding that covers the majority of the inside of the helmet. Unlike some traditional foam helmet padding this doesn't cause discomfort because of the greater skin contact area, but rather the padding serves to aid heat regulation and moisture wicking thanks to its carbon 'Resistex' technology.

Of course, there is also the great fit, thanks to the Kask Octofit system found in all their high-end models. There is also the quality Italian feel, found in features like the leather chin strap.

Out on the road and trails the Kask Valegro is incredibly comfortable and incredibly cool. I have owned numerous Kask models in the past, including the Kask Infinity, Mojito, and Rapido. All these models performed well, but the Valegro out-shines them both in terms of comfort and performance.
Even in sustained efforts at the TorTour Summer Cyclocross Race in the Swiss Alps, this helmet was barely noticeable in terms of weight or unwanted insulation.

It looks great, it is built to last and provide state-of-the-art protection, and it performs superbly.
This is a winning helmet in more ways than one.
