At the Taipei Cycle Show Kask has unveiled a helmet designed for the Asian market. The helmet was designed after a 12 month study by Kask to understand the region’s mean, median and normal distribution for head size and shape.

The new helmet is a variant on the company’s Mojito vented helmet, which was worn by Chris Froome on his way to victory at the 2013 Tour de France. It combines a new shell size and shape with its patented adjustment system.

Kask Cycling Sales Manager Ylenia Battistello said. “We worked with our R&D department to take measurements all over Asia, focusing on Japan, China, Korea and Thailand to better understand the normal distribution and the populations’ standard deviations for head size and shape. We then created a range of designs and worked with our local distribution partners to test these over many months, constantly refining it to make them as comfortable and well-fitting as possible.”

The data collected showed that a larger helmet size was needed to cater for increased maximum head size.

Battistello adds: “The wide normal distribution within these markets meant an additional helmet was needed to cater for all of it. The existing Mojito is one of the most adjustable and comfortable helmets on the market and we believe that, with the addition of the Mojito XL, we will be able to ensure the majority of the Asian market will be able to ride with a Kask helmet that is properly fitted and comfortable.”

The Mojito XL will fit heads up to 64cm and will be available worldwide.
