The Kask Protone: Technical Innovation with a Unique Look
The product of an extremely successful collaboration with the renowned team Sky, the Kask Protone sets the standard for ventilation, heat dissipation and aerodynamics. Tested in Jaguar’s wind tunnel with their CFD expertise, the Protone has an extremely low drag coefficient and thanks to its large openings, a reduced contact surface on the head. Equipped with Kask’s Octofit system, ECO chinstrap, Coolmax interior padding and 3D Dry technology, the Protone will keep you safe in the most comfortable and stylish way.
Wind Tunnel Tested Aerodynamics
An incredibly aerodynamic and top performing shell, tested in Jaguar’s Wind Tunnel with their CFD expertise. The Protone has extremely low drag, a top CX rating, and superb ventilation/ heat dissipation, meaning this helmet will produce excellent air outflow no matter position the riders head is in.
3D Dry Padding
Features 3D Dry padding which utilizes multi-layer open cell construction, Coolmax removable and washable lining and an ECO-Leather Chinstrap with a anti-allergic and washable chinstrap which helps to prevent skin irritation. To complete this plethora of comfort, Kask treats all the inner fabric with an antibacterial and antimicrobial sanitation process.
OCTO Fit Micro Dial Adjuster
Rubberized Micro Dial adjuster provides the perfect fit on your head and sets in-place. Floating cradle contact points combine internal gel pads for optimum comfort. These supports are designed to oscillate freely through 180° and the Skeletal Brackets of the cradle have been designed and refined to provide the best fit and support whilst being as light as possible.
MIT Safety Technology
Kask stands by their pledge of safety first and this is evident in the construction of the Protone. The reinforced frame offers increased mechanical strength, protecting the breaking of the helmet into multiple pieces upon collision. The polycarbonate cover is a feature of Kask’s MIT technology and covers the cap, ring and the rear of the helmet, ensuring greater shock absorption.

Thanks Kask. Eventually, I will reorder when able to ride again.
BTW, it was discovered that a squirrel had darted out of a bush into my rear wheel and got caught between spokes and seat stays...My wife is in an all out war against squirrels. Don't worry animal lovers. She only wants them gone, but won't do anything about it.
On July 25th I was doing my 2nd RAMROD (Ride Around Mt. Rainier One Day) in Washington state, a 155 mile ride with almost 10K feet of elevation. I was about 148 miles in (only 7 miles left) when tragedy struck. I’d been riding for over 9 hours (total time about 11 hours including breaks) and must have let my guard down for a second. After being on high alert during strenuous climbs, fast descents, and highway miles we were on a stretch of road with no traffic and our group spread out across the road in taking a break from the intensity of the day. We were on a slight downhill and going through sun/shade/sun/shade making the road tricky to see. I turned to speak to someone and in the 1 second my eyes were off the road I hit a nasty pothole sending me flying over the handlebars. I landed on the left side of my helmet and left shoulder and proceeded to bounce roll and slide until coming to a stop.
The final result was a mild concussion, a fractured scapula, ribs 1-5 fractured posterior (backside) and 4-6 fractured on the front (6 fractured ribs total, 2 of them fractured front and back. Fracturing your first rib is hard to do (Google it) meaning the blunt force I landed on my head and shoulder was beyond significant.
As long as the recovery is, I’m thankful that I bought this helmet and it wasn’t worse than it was. If you’re buying this helmet for safety reasons then you are in good hands based on my experience.
The pictures are the helmet after the crash (amazing head damage to me was not worse!), and at Inspiration Point about 78 miles into the ride - when I’m still smiling and the helmet is not yet damaged :).
All the design elements that Kask has put into this helmet make it feel like it is attached to your skull. It does not float on top of your head like so many other helmets I have owned. Instead, the Protone fit provides full contact and, to me, that means improved safety and security. Add in comfort from the best strapping system / materials I have ever seen, along with super ventilation, and I think you will get a sense of why I love this helmet so much. Highly recommended.
When trying this helmet on I thought I bought the wrong size. After a couple minutes of adjusting I experienced how a bike helmet should fit. Unlike my other helmets this one slips on and doesn't move. It fits my head perfectly, it's comfortable and it's looks like a million bucks.
Luckily I haven't had any bad accidents. Take care of your head with this helmet!
Getting the bad out of the way first, some of the little grey cushion inserts in the adjustable back part of the fit mechanism tend to come off unless you are careful - my first version had to be returned because one of these 2mm wide cushions was not on the helmet! And the second minor complaint - the synthetic material chin strap was not perfectly comfortable to someone used to the removable foam backed microfiber chin comfort cushion of the LAS (but I just took the chin strap cushion off the old LAS and added it to this helmet - problem solved. And the rear neck retention needs to be released before removal and retightened when putting the helmet on.
The good - pretty damn great! Light weight, very comfortable, very well ventilated even in 85 - 90 degree riding, and doesn't look like a mushroom! The rear neck strap adjusts for height, tightness, and even for the lateral positioning of the two cushion pads. Brilliant fit. Overall, just possibly slightly less comfortable than the LAS, but hard to prove - put it on and it disappears as far as your head is concerned - but is very visible to everyone else!. And looks shouldn't matter, but it IS a nice looking helmet (My star wars fan grandkids think it looks like an Imperial Storm Trooper helmet !!??).
I am really happy with this Protone KASK helmet, my new favorite.
