“I arrived in Santa Monica a week ago, so pumped to start training again. The first thing I saw when I looked up to the stairs of my apartment, were two huge boxes of the FINEST helmets in the world.” [...] “Of course, I couldn’t wait to give them all a test ride, I did my first ride this week with the Mojito helmet and absolutely LOVED it. It felt weightless and fit like a glove because like most of their helmets it is adjustable horizontally and vertically, so it –hugs- your skull as it adjusts to fit in the curve under your occipital bone.…+ it looked hot (you know that counts too!!).”
Torsten’s recent accomplishments include 2nd place at IRONMAN CANADA last year, and 4th at IRONMAN ARIZONA.

“…At first glance the [KASK Vertigo] looks similar to a lot of others in this price range. Loads of air vents, pretty lightweight, lots of colors … but where it truly crushes the competition is in the details. The chin strap is wrapped in leather, the ear straps have reflective ribbing, the brace at the back has gel inserts to cushion your head. The decals are clean and not covering every inch of the helmet like so many other companies. I dig the Kask logo too.”
“Would I buy a $300 helmet? Yep. Do I need that helmet for the sporadic type of riding I do? Maybe. I suggest when you walk into the bike shop looking for a new helmet, you’re actually deciding on what’s important to you besides safety. They are all safe and tested. You have to love a company that names a color “Mojito” (above left). Yum. I really like my Vertigo. Wait, why is the room spinning? It’s the Mojito, nevermind.
I can’t wait to get more miles in this helmet, and I’m positive you’ll start seeing them rolling down your local roads and rides.”

Vanderkitten-Focus Pro Women’s Cycling Team took advantage this past weekend of the sunny Californian winter with a special pre-season bike and KASK Helmets pre-fitting session in Mountain View, CA.
After a gruelling morning training ride taking in climbing roads featured in recent editions of the Amgen Tour of California, our US based VK athletes met with Vanderkitten-Focus staff and management to dial in their equipment for the impending season.
Vanderkitten is well known as a premium athletic brand, hence the alignment with KASK, but the importance of optimum safety whilst training is also something that the VK riders preach and practice. Whenever our riders are travelling across the USA to an International race, we make sure we align with schools and emergency services in host cities, so we can spread the word about bike safety. The fact that in 2012 we now utilize the most cutting edge designs in safety is paramount to the Vanderkitten message, and this weekend reinforced how lucky we are to be riding the best helmets in the world!
Now our athletes have the perfect fit for comfortable, stylish riding, our 2012 Vanderkitten-Focus jersey design will be matched precisely to the KASK in house template. This means our upstart Pro Women’s team will have access to the same premium technology and design featured in the KASK Helmets of UCI ProTour studs Team SKY. Check out the 2012 Vanderkitten-Focus KASK Mojito helmets online in the near future!
