Kask Tackle Super Premium Helmet Market Head On With The Elemento

Kask have added a premium new helmet to their lineup, the latest offering hiding in plain sight over the past few months with Ineos Grenadiers riders extensively testing the Elemento.

Key features are what the company describe as ‘fluid carbon’, and ‘multipod technologies’.

Fluid Carbon 12 is a composite technopolymer capable of absorbing more energy from an impact than traditional materials. The idea is that this helps distribute forces more evenly across the helmet.  

This has enabled KASK’s technicians to increase the size of the Elemento’s internal channels, improving ventilation whilst simultaneously reducing the size of the ventilation holes. Ultimately this aides internal cooling and external aerodynamics.

Multipod is a KASK-designed structure that is 3D-printed and used in the Elemento’s internal padding. This elastomer material was conceived as a direct result of KASK’s Rotational Impact WG11 Test – an internal testing protocol that has enabled KASK to improve the performance and safety of its helmets when subjected to different types of impact.

The helmet also features a reflective graphic on the back to increase rider visibility, plus also merino wool internal padding is used in addition to Multipod. This, say Kask, ‘Guarantees unprecedented comfort and heat regulation.’

Elemento Colours

The Elemento is available in the classic Black or White versions, as well as the new metallic finishes of Beetle Green, Oxford Blue, Red, and Silver.

As is standard for all KASK products, the Elemento was designed in accordance with the KASK Rotational Impact WG11 Test, an internal testing protocol that measures the helmet’s performance when subjected to rotational impacts.

Weighing in at just 260 grams (size M), the Elemento will have an RRP in  Australia of $650.
