First seen at this year's Strade Bianche on the heads of the Ineos Grenadiers, Kask's Wasabi helmet sits above the Protone, Valegro and Utopia in the brand’s product hierarchy. With so many high-quality options currently duking it out for a spot among the best road bike helmets, it's becoming increasingly difficult to make an informed decision as many of the options in this competitive space tick all the boxes in terms of safety, comfort, performance and weight. 

Like many of the Italian helmet makers - Met, Rudy Project and Salice included - Kask has forged a reputation for its striking looks and svelte contours, and that's always been a strong selling point for the brand. We've spent the past few weeks getting to grips with what makes the new model tick, and this is what we think thus far.
