Question 5. How well ventilated are the KASK Helmets?

Answer – The KASK Equestrian helmets are designed for superior ventilation. They have a ventilation system that enables airflow to the top and back of the head, keeping you cool and dry. From customer testimonials from riders at WEF (where temperatures easily touch 95 degrees), they claim KASK Helmets are simply very well ventilated.

Question 6. What is the KASK Fit System?

Answer – The KASK Fit System is a special design that enhances the fit of the helmet for all riders. It consists of a flexible brace that cradles the back of the neck/head area. Riders with long hair will find this especially useful. Since the cradle is flexible, it compresses the hair in, reducing any gaps.

As an additional benefit, it provides extra coverage to the back of the head area.

The cradle can be removed (optionally) if the rider does not wish to use it. Please follow the instructions in the User Manual.

Magnetic Buckle
Question 7. What about the ‘magnetic buckle’?

Answer – All KASK Equestrian Helmets feature a magnetic buckle system. As soon as you hold the buckle close, it self-locks. Be rest assured that the buckle is designed to prevent involuntary release.

Question 7. Does KASK offer a wide-brim helmet like the GPA First Lady?

Answer – The KASK Star Lady and KASK Star Lady Shadow are the flagship wide-brim helmets from KASK. These offer superior protection from the sun. Additionally, they are also very aesthetically pleasing.

Question 8. What is the difference between the Dogma Light and Dogma Chrome Light Helmets?

Answer – The two helmets are identical with one difference: Where the Dogma Chrome Light helmets sport a “Chrome” (shiny) trim, the Dogma Light Helmets feature a matt tone-on-tone trim. For example, the Black/Silver Dogma Chrome Light Helmet features a Silver trim on a Black Helmet. The Dogma Light Helmet is a top choice for hunter riders.

  1. I have a kask, in size 60. When I tried it on at a store it fit fine. When I bought one it fits my head fine, but if I want my hair tied up I have to have it super super low and because my hair is on the shorter side of medium length it falls out, and it’s not practical. Could I fix this by buying a 61 liner? Allowing me to put my hair up slightly higher?

    • Hi Alicia
      We are glad to hear you like your KASK helmet. Trying with the size 61 liner should possibly help. Also, please consider the use of a hairnet as it helps in keeping the helmet well balanced on your head.
      Hope that helps!

  2. My head measures as 55.5cm so I bought a 55 helmet thinking it would compress down but it doesn’t seem to (I’ve worn it quite a few times and it is still tight). Is the only difference between the 55cm and the 56 cm the removable liner? If so, would the bigger liner make a difference?

  3. i bought KASK helmet with size of 56cm. However, it seems small and i try 57cm and it is fit. Given 56cm and 57cm are using Small Shell. therefore, if i buy a 57cm inner liner, then that will be fit. correct?

    • Hi LM
      Please check with visual inspection the generation of your KASK Equestrian helmet. If it is the very first generation, the small shell would fit in liners 51 through 57. However, anything after the first version, 56 and 57 liners do not fit in the same shell. The Extra Small shell will fit liners sizes 50 through 54, Small Shell will fit liners sizes 55 and 56, Medium 57, 58 and 59, Large 60, 61, 62 and 63.

      Hope this helps. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have further questions.
