I bought this because Kask doesnt make Vertigo any more. That model fit my rounder head. The fit here is similar. I like the leather straps. The rear locking system is adjustable, but not as nice as Vertigo. Overall I think the helmet is very nice and excellent value.
Very nice fitting helmet and very well ventilated. I have used this past weekend on a metric century and almost forgot it was there. The weather was very warm and humid but had no problem with sweat dripping in my eyes. Very nice leather chin strap also.
Not sure how the dent in back appeared, possibly fell off a shelf. Regardless, a twist on the rear knob and I felt something give. I see it has a huge crack on the inside rear molding. Not as tough as my cheapo Giro which has been dropped a bunch of times.
I bought this helmet while waiting for a replacement retention strap for Catlike Whisper Deluxe helmet that I've been using for most of the year. The Mojito is more comfortable (for me) than the latter and both the retention system and chin strap are higher quality. The retention system is quite easy to adjust with a single hand, which could come in handy if, say, your head expands after being hit by a poison dart in the middle of your ride. Despite the added comfort, the Catlike's airflow seems better and I'll likely still use it on hotter days, but overall the Mojito is a superior hat.
The Kask Mojito's looks including its low profile eliminates the dreaded mushroom head look. The leather-like straps, sturdy (and removable) padding, adjustable back harness all add up to one quality-looking helmet. I hope crash protection is top-notch as well (this one I don't want to find out first hand). I can't comment yet on how well ventilation is as it is still cold where I ride. There are a lot of vents so I don't see overheating will be an issue. I will give the helmet 4.5 stars out of 5. The half point deduction is for
1. The helmet's harness that hugs the back of one's head gets in the way of my sunglasses' arms. I resolved this issue by tucking the arms under the harness. Tuck them in before tightening the harness. The upside to this is that my sunglasses stay solidly in place.
Overall, I'm enjoying the helmet. I can see item 1 as a slight concern when I have to, for some reason, remove and put back my sunglasses while moving.
I had tried around 7 different road bike helmets for endurance purpose. Namely Bontrager Velocis and Starvos, Giro Savant, Foray and Synthe, Canondale Cypher and Teramo. The strange bit was that I had tried all of them in person and ended buying the KASK mojito without even trying it as no store kept it where I live. The risk taken was primarly after reading through rave reviews and great specifications. Bottom line - Team Sky uses it.
The delivery experience was smooth and awesome. Now after trying the helmet, I feel it has been a great decision. The helmet fits perfect and looks awesome. No mushroom looks. The fitting elements and padding are very comfortable. The leather strap under the chin is very soft and is one of the major USPs. The only area of worry is that the helmet has stickers on it. Hope they done peel off with use. Go for it!!!
The helmet feels great on. Fit is excellent. Very lightweight. Every other helmet I've had brings on the mushroom head look. With this helmet it's gone! I ride just about every day averaging 200 per week so it's been getting lots of use. May buy another one just to keep em' stockpiled...
I bought this helmet to replace my old Giro. It's lightweight, fits snugly, and feels secure. Seems well ventilated for hot weather. My only criticism is the plastic strap at the back, which holds the helmet in place, can be a tad uncomfortable. This same strap now keeps my glasses from staying in place, I have to adjust them constantly, as it seems to push them out. I think I'd go back to Giro for my next helmet.
I love this helmet - it fits my noggin nice and snug and the adjuster works great. Fits with a cap (for the winter) or without (for the summer). The chin strap goes around and not OVER my ears, just how I like it. The chin strap connection is smooth and easy. Helmet is light and comfy - looks good too!
My primary helmet. I ride road, gravel & all-mountain XC. Super comfortable, excellent fit, great ventilation, looks good too - best helmet I've ever owned (by far)! Recetly crashed hard on pavement (first time in years). 30mph over the bars. Landed on my head, broke the helmet (same model Kask) but it minimized injuries. I ordered the exact same model immediately!
