Kask Protone
Kask Protone’s design is one of the best helmets we’ve ever seen. It looks gorgeous and classy. Last time we checked, there are 17 colors available to choose. They really want you to look really good wearing this helmet. It’s very lightweight with only 230 grams, you will feel like you’re not wearing anything on top of your head.

The shape can really fit on your head, some people described the helmet like a beanie, from the way it encompassed their heads. It can reach low at both front side and back side.

The adjustment system is great and simple. The arms of the cradle fasten the inside of the helmet. The polystyrene inside is expanded at your temples and again at the rear. That’s where you get the most of height adjustment. There is a lot more adjustments you can do to make the helmet 100% fit on your head.

Another thing worth mentioning about the strap is that the chin strap isn’t simply a continuation of the upper straps. This makes the strap always sit flat and more comfortably. Also, the chin strap is made from eco leather, easy to clean. The inner padding is also removable and replaceable.

The vents are very effective, they can regulate warm air and let cool air in. There is a good amount of airflow across the top of your head. The vents keep your head cool and less sweaty on the road. You can wear this helmet during hot days and it will keep the humidity low to keep you going.

Kask always boast about their vents design. They use computational fluid dynamics software to have the best efficiency when it comes to aerodynamic, drag coefficients and comfort.

There is a nice anchor points for your eyewear, using the vents you can secure your eyewear when not wearing them. They’re pretty secure and tight up there.

Overall, Kask Protone is definitely a premium helmet. Priced at $249, this helmet won’t disappoint anyone. Kask claims that Protone is handmade in Italy, from the world’s finest materials and hours of meticulous hand work. And of course, it has been wind tunnel tested.

And the best thing is, Kask Mojito is much more affordable at $169 compared to Kask Protone. Kask Mojito also available in a wide range of colors that you can choose.

There are 26 air vents surrounding the helmet, they do an excellent job at letting cool air in from the front and getting rid of hot air from the back. Riding on hot days should feel like a breeze is flowing on top of your head and keep you going.

As great as the vents are, you can’t really compare them to other pricier helmets. But this means, you can use Kask Mojito in cooler conditions without feeling like your head is about to freeze. That’s actually a real problem with helmets with too many ventilations.

Kask Mojito is very comfortable. It can fit all types of head with no problems. It can sit securely and comfortably on your head. That being said Kask Mojito will fit better on people with wider heads.

Anyway, the comfort is produced by the slim padding and the read dial adjustment system. The padding is very soft and flexible. The adjustment system can be rotated up and down to make sure that the back of your head is 100% secured.

The straps are made of two different kinds of materials. The parts around your ears are made from a standard nylon, most commonly used on other helmet straps. And the parts underneath your chin is from an artificial leather. Kask claims that artificial leather is used to increase comfort.

Another important thing to mention, there is a warning issued regarding this product by Amazon.
