Kask Utopia Makes Global Debut After a Year Of Testing

Comments Comments
 

KASK’s most aerodynamic road helmet to date, the Utopia, is now available on the global market.

After extensive testing and use by cyclists of the ilk of Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas and their Team Sky teammates at the 2018 Giro d’Italia and Tour de France, the helmet has proven itself as the Italian company's most efficient and technologically advanced release.

The Utopia will be available in three sizes (small, medium, large) and five different colorways: black/matt, black/white, black/yellow, white/black, and orange.

Speed, design and hi-tech material
Developed with Team Sky, many months of research and testing went into Utopia’s creation. KASK wind-tunnel tested ten of the best road aero helmets on the market and created a 3D scan for a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. The drag data of Utopia versus the best competitor helmet resulted in a saving of up to 6 watts when riding at 50kph.

KASK say the Utopia is suitable for year-round riding in all climates due to its focused design to keep the rider cool, especially at high speed. A special feature of the new helmet is the breathable and quick-dry padding, offering a 5mm layer of fast-wicking material called Resistex Carbon that takes moisture away from the rider’s head and moves it to the helmet’s outer shell, contributing to a helmet that’s comfortable to wear all day long. 
 

 

Kask Utopia Key Features:

  • Super lightweight, coming in at 235g/8.3oz (size medium)

Shimano may have been late to the game releasing their first 12-speed drivetrain, but after spending some trail-time aboard it, there's no denying that the new XTR is worth the wait.

Focus has approached the E-MTB category in a markedly different way to its rivals by focusing on bike first and battery second. Is it the right approach?

Like them or loathe them, the E-MTB is here to stay and whether you are an elite racer or weekend FROTHER there is a place in everyone’s garage for one of these beasts.
