Team Sky are using KASK’s new ventilated, lightweight VALEGRO during the Tour de France, in anticipation of the new helmet’s launch later this year.
The 9-man Team Sky squad, including defending champion Chris Froome and Polish all-rounder Michal Kwiatkowski will wear the VALEGRO when climbing high effort, key stages of the 104th edition of the Tour.
The new VALEGRO’s key features are its cuting-edge ventilation system, its super lightweight compact design, its superb fit and rider comfort.
Like KASK’s other road helmets, the VALEGRO has been developed with and for Team Sky’s multiple Grand Tour winning riders, and is based on their feedback from the most punishing race conditions possible. With 36 air intakes, resulting in a head-to-pad contact area up to 70% less than some conventional helmet designs, VALEGRO’s temperature management performance is unmatched – keeping Team Sky’s riders cool on the hottest of climbs and longest of stages on the Tour.
KASK is a valued sponsor and supporter of Bicycling Australia’s Bowral Classic – you can be sure to see many riders of the 2017 event putting their trust and confidence in a KASK, both in training for and riding the big event on October 22 this year.
Pricing and further details of the new KASK VALEGRO will be published as news becomes available.
