Kask has launched the new Defender, a carbon-shelled, full-face mountain bike helmet.
“Bringing together Kask’s industry-leading know-how in cycle and snow sports helmet design, the new Defender has been developed specifically with downhill, enduro and freeride mountain bikers in mind,” said a statement. “For enthusiasts and racers alike, it blends the latest full-face helmet construction technologies and materials with the sleek and stylish design that Kask is renowned for.”
The helmet weighs 750g in a size M and has 18 ventilation ports that enable “fast heat dissipation”. Inside, quick-release cheek padding assists with safe helmet removal in the event of a crash, as well as easy cleaning, along with the interchangeable, Velcro-less, washable inner lining that “maximises rider comfort”.
The cheek padding and inner lining also help to ensure an “optimum fit” around the rider’s head, with a ‘Double D-ring’ chin strap securing the Defender in place. The helmet has also been engineered to provide the “widest field of vision possible”, with wide-angle cutaways built-in and an adjustable visor integrated into its top section.
The Defender is available in four sizes (S-XL) and four-colour designs.
