I bought a Kask Mojito a few years ago based on the high recommendation of my bike mechanic who is also a friend. From day one that helmet clearly was outstanding on every front. It was light in weight, comfortable on my head, had plenty of vents to keep my head cool, and did not slip or slide around once in place and adjusted. In December 2018 while riding my bike I was hit by a car who made a left turn into my bike lane as I was descending at 50 mph. I rode smack into his passenger side door, my carbon fiber Trek broke in two and I was thrown off landing on my back breaking eight ribs, left scapula, shoulder, left jaw, five front teeth and suffering a concussion. My lungs also collapsed. The ambulance rushed me to a trauma center where I stayed in the ICU for one week. The surgeon told me my helmet saved me from suffering extensive head trauma. Two months later I was ready to get back on my bike but I had thrown away my Kask Mojito and needed a new one so I found my size Small at Western Bikes. The only difference is that it is the Mojito X but I love it just like my first Mojito. Currently Im in Japan on a 12 day bike journey from Izumi Kagoshima to Kyoto. My Kask Mojito x is with me!
It's lightweight, safe, and fits me great. I like the leather chin strap and the helmet vents great. I keep it in the box when not in use to avoids scuffs and damage. Replace after crashing or a hard drop, as with any road helmet.
Over the years Ive had many road cycling helmets, Ill admit its my first Kask helmet, but certainly not my last. Im shocked by the fit & comfort with respect to the mechanics that enable the helmet to fit without sliding around. Ive already decided next helmet(color) will be a Kask! Very impressed with this product.
Most Giro's and Bell's don't fit my head too well, they are too round. Specialized and Kask fit great, I would say more for an oval shaped head. This Mojito fits great and is constructed really well with the inner foam being wrapped by a polycarbonate plastic even at the underside edges, which means it's durable and can survive the knocks of everyday life, on and off the bike.
Great overall helmet with a fair amount of padding to ensure a comfortable fit. Dial adjustment system and a leather chin strap add a touch of class as well as a secure fit. Did I mention that this helmet is also comfortable...
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.
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.
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.
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.
