KASK are delighted to announce that their road helmet VALEGRO has won a prestigious iF Design Award, a world-renowned design prize.
The VALEGRO won in the ‘Product’ discipline in the ‘Sports/Outdoor/Bicycles’ category in which there were 71 competing products. Each year, the world’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, organizes the iF Design Award.
KASK’s helmet won over the 63-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, with its cutting edge design and functionality. The competition was high with over 6,400 entries submitted from 54 countries; all in the hope of receiving the seal of quality.
Luca Viano, Director of Product at KASK said: – We are always looking for the next advantage in terms of innovation and performance here at KASK. The final design of the VALEGRO is the result of a lot of hard work in perfecting both the safety, lightness and ventilation of the helmet and we are delighted that this has been recognised. Over-heating can impair performance, so we designed the ventilation system of VALEGRO to help regulate body temperature when exercise intensity and temperature increase.
The profile of VALEGRO’s polycarbonate shell has been tested and refined by KASK’s engineers in conjunction with a wind-tunnel to get the best results in terms of thermo-cooling performance. The VALEGRO offers advanced ventilation and an impressive weight of just 180g (size small). This new design offers maximum cooling through 37 ventilation holes with new breathable and quick-dry padding. The 5mm layer of fast-wicking thermoformed tri-dimensional padding is antistatic, bacteriostatic, heat regulating and moisture transferring using Resistex Carbon. Alongside this cutting edge technology, the chin pad with eco-leather strap contributes to a helmet that’s comfortable to wear, all day.
