First look: Kask Vertigo mtb helmet

The super posh Kask Vertigo mtb lid just landed at WideopenHQ…

With 24 vents, gel padding, Italian leather chin strap, fancy ‘up n’ down’ adjustability and heaps of other features we’re expecting big things from this baby.

The Vertigo is Kask’s brand new mtb helmet… but they’ve been in the cycling game for years and are already the sponsors for the super pro Sky team. They also produce heaps of protective helmets for folk who work in the rescue industry, rope access, heli-crews and other dangerous stuff… meaning they know about protecting your nut.

The Vertigo has just hit the UK thanks to Juicy Bits Distribution (Juice Lubes) and will be in the shops any minute now. The full range of techno features are:
