Features

Ventilation
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.

Fit
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.

Optional Removable Back of Head Support

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.

Wide Visor “Star Lady” Helmets

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.

Introducing KASK Riding Helmets at WEF 2016

Dogma Chrome Light Helmet in Navy with Silver trim

For the upcoming WEF 2016 season, we are pleased to announce the arrival of a new name in Riding Helmets. KASK has long been in the helmet industry. It is a recognized leader within the bike helmet space. The bike helmets are used by some of the world’s top professional bicycle athletes.

KASK is an Italian brand that is making headway into the equestrian space. For good reason too. With high competition in the riding helmet space, it is hard to see another new entrant gain momentum. Yet, early trends show otherwise.

What’s different about KASK Helmets?

We have asked our customers the reasons behind this. The majority of them had the following feedback:

  • It is super comfortable. Just feeling the inside liner will confirm this.
  • Feels more secure. The fit system (removable neck brace) that cradles the back of the head and upper neck enable this.
  • Good Looks. KASK scores high marks for attention to aesthetics.
  • Removable Washable Inner Line is hygienic and easy to clean.

Dogma Lite is the base helmet within the KASK collection. Not much separates the two models. Dogma Lite has a Matt Trim. Dogma Chrome Lite features a Chrome Trim. The trim has a glossy look and feel. Both the Dogma Light and Dogma Chrome Lite offers two different trim combinations. The Tone on Tone trim and  Contrast Silver Trim.

The other two models, Star Lady and Star Lady Shadow, feature a wider brim. The wider brim enables a higher degree of sun protection. For the riders that prefer not to attach a secondary visor, these helmets fit the bill. There is just a small difference between the two models. The helmets are identical otherwise. The Star Lady offers 2 different kinds of Chrome Trim: Tone on Tone and Contrast. The Star Lady Shadow is only available in  Tone On Tone Matt Finish.

KASK Helmets offer the rider lots of choices for helmets.  All the models are certified for use in the US and Europe. The pleasing looks and extra comfort are major benefits.

Personalization

KASK Helmets can be customized easily. With a variety of different options available, you can truly personalize your KASK Helmet. We will write another post on personalization for KASK Helmets later.
