Kask is debuting an updated version of its popular Utopia helmet dubbed the Utopia Y, touting improved aerodynamics, ventilation and styling that’s aimed at roadies and triathletes alike.
“Make faster a reality. Welcome to a new era of aerodynamics and ventilation, where speed and comfort are of the utmost essence. The Utopia Y pushes the boundaries of design and engineering first seen in the original Utopia helmet, now upgraded in a fresh, restyled version. For cyclists who place a premium on the pursuit of marginal gains, they can’t afford to be dragged down by inefficiencies. A good fit translates to being faster; the Utopia Y is an essential ally on the path to the podium,” boasts Kask.
The Utopia Y also features what Kask calls Resistex carbon padding, a breathable material that’s designed to move moisture to the helmet’s outer shell. Moreover, the padding has been moved to the front of the helmet in order to optimize fit.
Additionally, Utopia Y also gets Kask’s new OCTOFIT+ adjustment system, which features a larger rotational dial that’s been treated with a special rubber coating to enhance grip and ergonomics, while the new retention system is also said to envelop a wider area across the nape of the neck.
Elsewhere, the Utopia Y receives reflective graphics to ensure greater visibility, along with a KASK logo that’s now located on the side of the helmet, a new touch that can been on helmets being donned by sponsored athletes and pro teams.
Available in a wide variety of colors including White Matt, White Shine, Black Matt and Black Shine, to more striking shades like Oxford Blue, Red and Grey, the Utopia Y tips the scales at a feathery 260 grams (in size M) for $300.
Lastly, as with all of KASK’s helmets, the Utopia Y was developed in accordance with the Italian brand’s Rotational Impact WG11 Test, an internal testing method that measures the helmet’s performance when subjected to rotational impacts.
