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.
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
