Mr Westmore This helmet is light, airy and fits better than my previous Specialized or MET helmets
Mr Gamage Nice helmet! Loads of vents
Mr Darcey This is the best helmet I have ever used. The fit is sensational due to the simple dual direction adjuster. The leather chin strap is a really nice touch. Well ventilated and the cut out for the additional foam insert at the front is brilliant for catching dripping sweat. The helmet allows for excellent peripheral vision. Other helmets such as the POC and Lazer helmets I recently used (current models) were too blocky and you can’t see what you need to. An absolute joy to wear. Size wise, it seems to run true... Medium = medium.
Mr Mallagh Very lightweight helmet for you weight weenie. Great colour selection and very comfortable
Mr Welsh Very lightweight and comfortable, I don't even notice that I'm wearing it. Seems good build quality.
Paul Stevens Previously a Giro user, I thought long and hard about ordering a Kask. I shouldn't have worried as the fit is perfect with plenty of adjustment. Other reviews stated that two points at the front cause pressure, and a lack of padding leads to sweat running in your eyes. This has been addressed by Kask it seems by the addition of a pad in this area. In use light and comfortable with plenty of ventilation, looks smart as well in red. Might be a bit cool in winter but that's better than too hot in summer. All in all a great helmet.
Mr Dickson Light as a feather and comfortable. You'll not notice you are wearing a helmet
Mr Serrano Excellent product and very good service, Safe and effective transaction, I highly recommend it
Jules Lightweight, fully adjustable and comfortable. Excellent ventilation in hot and humid climes. Chin strap is rather stiff when new.
Anthony C Fantastic helmet - lightweight with plenty of ventilation
Chris Thompson Quality lightweight, low profile helmet. I was right on the border between medium and large so I initially ordered both. I kept the medium. The sizing definitely runs bigger than the kask mojito and if like me you are in between sizes I would recommend going for the smaller one. There is a huge range of adjustability as well. Prefect amount of ventilation in my opinion. Great in the heat and in the early morning cold. All in all a top quality helmet!
LambrosManop Very light helmet, with exceptional ventilation. Only minor setback are the two small contact points on the forehead, that seems to create some pressure.
Davy Very light, well ventilated and fully adjustable helmet. Very comfortable I forget I’m wearing it.
Mr lenehan Super helmet, great fitting, bought the Tean Ineos one for my son a few months back and got myself the black one. Great price from Merlin yet again.
Mr Rodriguez First premium helmet purchase for me, and I went with the lightest there was, Valegro does not disappoint there. It's a good looking lid too. It's very airy, and will be a godsend in the hot Southern California summer and fall. The anti-chafe chin strap is a nice touch as straps on my shaved face tend to cause breakouts. I have a large head with a 7 3/4 fitted cap size, and the size large Kask was just right after good adjustment. First time ordering from Merlin and a package from Manchester UK to Los Angeles in 5 days is aces in my book. Product and packaging were in impeccable condition, and at the best price anywhere here in the States.
Miss Siaw Wen This is my first Kask road helmet. The Kask Valegro is so light that i thought i have received an empty box in the first place. I took awhile to adjust the helmet to fit nicely on my head without any major issues. I do feel the difference after my first ride on this helmet comparing to my other helmets as this helmet so light as if you are putting on anything. It is so airy which i believe Kask has put in major attention to detail on the ventilation system and very suitable for my country as we have almost all year round summer. To summarize, i am very satisfied with Kask Valegro and highly recommend them.
Mr Wintrip First new helmet in around 3 years, and the difference in weight to my old Lazer, and comfort is phenomenal. Love the size also, it doesn't feel like I have a peak in-front of my eyes (it wasn't a peak). Merlin also gave a super speedy shipping of the helmet which meant I could try it out quicker.
Roberto Very light and very comfortable!!!
Mr Gueret Really great helmet. Comfy & lots of fitting customization
Mr Smart Good fitting, well tailored cycling helmet. ventilation is superb and looks great with a cap on cooler mornings.
Lee Excellent fit. Looks good. Nice and light. Good price too.
Mr DODDS Great helmet, nice fit,light and airy. Awesome price and delivery was fast.
Mark Worn a few times now, always with a cap or hat as is still quite cold. Very comfortable in the don't really think about it once on way. Easily adjustable cradle. Doesn't feel as noisy as my previous helmet when descending. There is no front pad as with other helmets I've had; as gets warmer will be interesting to see if airflow helps sweat dry, or the lack of a pad to absorb it is a negative. Particularly the colours on offer (I paid £85) seem very good value for money.
Mr Iwai 日本人のような横幅がある丸頭にはフィットすると思われます。軽量でKask特有の後頭部の下を覆うようなフィット感が非常に良いです。
Rick F excellent helmet, excellent fit. I have a giro synthe MIPS that is comfortable and snug but doesn’t have enough adjustment when you want to wear any other headwear underneath. My old Kask Mojito was a great fit and had the scope to adjust so I decided to update to the Valegro. It’s a fantastic helmet, well made and I can easily accommodate headwear or just tighten it up a few clicks. Excellent!
Dickson Excellent lightweight, well vented helmet! Fits very well, and one can dial the fit exactly. Love my Kask helmets, and the great price from Merlin!
Mr Bayliss Lovin the product. Very happy with the way it looks and feels. Worth the money. In terms of the ordering, Merlin's were the best price I could find. I got exactly what I ordered and didn't have to wait very long for the order to be shipped out to Australia. Very happy...
Nobuyuki Super comfortable and lightweight helmet. fits excellent, especially for rounder heads. Chin strap very sturdy and good quality. Highly recommended.
Mr Bowman Light, comfortable, excellent ventillation. Also sits lower than my old Giro, so no more 'mushroom-head'.
Mr Le Roux Very happy with my purchase. Very comfortable fit and amazingly cool. If "attention to detail" is your thing, look no further. Leather strap, none of that "exposed polycarbonate plastic" that dings easily. No flapping straps. Excellent service from Merlin - dispatched on time and delivered with a smile!
Mr agapito awesome product
Mr Carney Comfortable and light with loads of vents to keep you cool.
Mr ALVAREZ BUENROSTRO Light and well made, ventilation is top.
Jephrey Puerto Rico Fits perfectly and is super light.
Lucky Surprisingly light and snug... feels like wearing a beanie with huge holes but with security and safety features... cannot recomend more, perfect for the weather here in the middle east!
Mr Kleinstein Very light and awesome adjustment options. There are plenty of vents for hot days. The helmet only weighs 200 grams in a size Medium which is very light even with a heavy leather chin strap. Only flaw is that there is no padding at the forehead that sucks up sweat to prevent sweat dripping into your eyes. If it s good enough for Team Sky it is good enough for you.
Bruce This Helmet is one of the best I've ever worn, I Love It... No question, just do it, build quality is very good. I went from a Specialized Prevail to this, so far so good... SUPER HAPPY!!
Mr Villiers Love the helmet, light and comfortable
Scott Superb, great fit and super lightweight
