Even if we weren't asking for it in the first place, it seems there is a bike and an array of products to go with it for every type of riding possible nowadays... and that trend may have just 'peaked' with the launch of Kask's Mojito X Peak, a helmet made specifically for gravel riding.
The new lid is essentially the same as Kask's all new Mojito but with a peak built into the front (which is why it's a gravel helmet apparently), to stop bits of grit, rain and mud from getting in your eyes and also to keep out the glare of the sun. It's available in black, red or white colourways and if you happen to venture off the gravel tracks, you'll be glad to know that the peak is indeed removable.
The Mojito X minus the peak has the same safety, comfort and ventilating features as its predecessor (read the review here) with some subtle styling updates. It has Kask's Multi In-Moulding impact protection system with a polycarbonate layer over the shell, and for added comfort Kask add their luxurious eco-leather chinstrap. The Mojito X also retains the Up‘n’Down adjustment system with a double pivot design that cradles the back of your head by the straps. The weight is just 220g, and it has 26 vents to keep you cool on the hottest of days.
Both helmets are available now, with the Mojito X retailing at £119 and the Mojito X Peak costing six quid more at £125. Check out Kask's website for more info.
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He was Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine for two years before joining road.cc in 2017, and reports on all things tech as well as editing the road.cc live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
