Product Description

Kali's a name you know from their ultra-protective trail helmets and full-faces, but they've now applied that technology to a road line. The Maraka was designed to keep your head safe, while also making sure you stay as cool as possible. The helmet features a stunning 25 vents, oriented in a variety of ways, so that air passes in, over and off your head, no matter how fast you're traveling. Embedded in the polystyrene layer of the helmet are EPS foam cones, which are designed to disperse impact energy, and direct it away from your head in the event of a crash. Kali are the only company using this technology, and claim that it allows them to make a lighter, stronger, safer helmet.

I love the giant vents for the warmer months riding in the south. The helmet does come with a webbed liner to prevent bugs flying into the vents. Otherwise, I like to the fit of the helmet and the weight is reasonable. I have used the Giro Atmos and Las Supreme for the last several years and this is my new favorite.

I have been a serious road cyclist for 16 years and have gone through several helmets in that time. Previously, I have always worn the same brand--the one preferred by my husband. The last helmet of that brand has never been comfortable. I have a permanent dent in my head from it. Yet, I wore it for about four years. Finally, after one ride when it was particularly uncomfortable, I decided that it was time to get a new helmet. I also decided that it might be time to try a different brand. I used Bicycling Magazine's Buyer's Guide online and found this Kali Protectives Maraka helmet. I was drawn to it because it was described as being the most comfortable. I ordered it and am very glad. I have worn it for over 1,000 miles, and it is definitely the best-fitting and most comfortable helmet I have had. I may have an oddly shaped head because this helmet does leave red marks after a long ride, but it is not uncomfortable, and they do go away. It doesn't look quite as aerodynamic as my old helmet, but the performance is fine, and the tradeoff in comfort is well worth it. I like this helmet very much and recommend it highly as a comfortable and well-fitting helmet.

Definitely well-fitting and light weight (I guess that's what you pay for...) But it's an helmet. It does it's job. Truth is, you can probably get equally well-performing, but not well-fitting, helmets a good 80%-90% cheaper than this. I noticed no additional air flow than my prior cheap auction-site helmet. If you've got the cash, yeah, go ahead, but don't think it's miles above others.
