SASI and KASK supporting bike helmet safety

While bike helmet safety is an important issue all year round, the South Australian Sports Institute (SASI) and its helmet provider KASK are urging South Australian riders to be particularly vigilant during the month of January for the Tour Down Under – when there is an influx of professional and amateur riders on the roads.

One of the most important safety measures for cyclists is the use of a properly fitted helmet which is why KASK bike helmets are a reliable and safe choice for riders in South Australia, particularly during the busiest cycling period of the year.

With their high-quality construction, innovative design, and comfortable fit, SASI trusts KASK to support its cyclists.

SASI cyclist and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Caitlin Ward has worn KASK helmets for years and believes they are a huge asset to the cycling community.

“I really like KASK – KASK is really supportive of SA, from grassroots all the way up to the elite team of SASI,” Ward said.

“The support that they provide athletes and cyclists from all levels is really, really awesome and the helmets look very cool; they’re very swish and very suave and the aero helmets are second to none.”

KASK helmets are popular amongst professional and amateur riders alike as these helmets do not compromise when it comes to quality and safety.

KASK's perfectly ergonomic helmets, produced entirely in Italy, were developed to fit the needs of world's top athletes, and therefore they ensure the wearer unparalleled comfort even in the most rigorous circumstances.

To put riders even more at ease, KASK quality is a guarantee as a result of many carefully monitored safety tests.

The KASK Rotational Impact WG11 Test is an internal protocol adopted by KASK to identify an objective method, based on scientific sources, for measuring the performance of its helmets against rotational impacts.

The helmets’ integrated structure system combines the greatest level of protection with the lightest possible mass of the helmet to ensure comfort and safety for the wearer.

KASK helmets are available in a range of sizes and have adjustable retention systems that allow the rider to customise the fit to their head shape, ensuring that the helmet stays securely in place, even during intense rides.
