KASK SUPPORTS THE MARATONA DLES DOLOMITES ENEL, RELEASING THE NEW LIMITED EDITION VALEGRO MDD HELMET

The world’s most ventilated, lightweight helmet brings a splash of color to Alta Badia

KASK continues its support of the Maratona dles Dolomites enel, one of the world’s most challenging and picturesque single-day gran fondos where this year the theme is ‘equilibrium’ – a state of physical balance.

To celebrate this fantastic event, KASK has created a limited edition version of the VALEGRO – the VALEGRO MDD. This new design incorporates the Maratona’s iconic rainbow colored logo on the top, front and rear of the helmet. VALEGRO MDD will be available via stores globally at all4cycling, and at the Maratona dles Dolomites gran fondo itself.

The VALEGRO, which recently won a prestigious IF Design Award, has a polycarbonate shell, tested and refined by KASK’s engineers in conjunction with a wind tunnel to get the best results in terms of thermo-cooling performance.

 

The VALEGRO offers advanced ventilation and an impressively light weight of just 180g (size small). This new design offers maximum cooling through 37 ventilation holes with breathable, quick-dry padding. The 5mm layer of fast-wicking thermoformed tri-dimensional padding is antistatic, bacteriostatic, heat regulating and moisture transferring using Resistex Carbon. Alongside this cutting edge technology, the chin pad with eco-leather strap contributes to a helmet that’s comfortable to wear, all day.

KASK will showcase its limited edition VALEGRO MDD at the Maratona’s ‘La Villa’ area from 28th-30th June in San Leonardo, Badia. The VALEGRO MDD will be available in small, medium and large and is presented in its own unique Maratona-Edition box.

Ylenia Battistello, KASK’s Cycling Brand Manager, said: “Since launching last year the VALEGRO has proven itself to be a great success across many pro-level podiums. It is perfect for the slopes of Alta Badia and will keep riders aero, cool and comfortable throughout the undulating route.”

Michil Costa, President of the Maratona dles Dolomites Organising Committee, said: “It’s great to have KASK on board once more; they are constantly innovating and making lighter, faster products – ideal for those looking for perfection in the mountains.”

The Maratona dles Dolomites enel will take place on Sunday 1st July 2018. Once again there will be a Sella Ronda, and Medium and Long routes for those wanting to really push themselves.
