The KASK safety difference – Why it’s so important to invest in safety

Oct 29, 2022

Established in 2004 and based in Italy, KASK helmets are currently leading the world in Equestrian safety. Working closely with expert engineers, KASK specialises in developing and designing the highest quality of helmets at Italy's market-leading factories.

The ongoing mission to maintain utmost perfection from a technological, functional and safety perspective is prioritised in all KASK designs. The integrated structure system enables the greatest level of protection with the lightest possible mass. Weighing only 565 grams, you can trust that this helmet will remain comfortable after long hours in the saddle. KASK has conducted rigorous safety and quality tests to ensure all designs pass the distinctive CSD Project – Comfort Safety Design. KASK helmets have been tested and proven to perform up to 62% better than the standard requirement.

KASKs ergonomic helmets, produced entirely in Italy, were developed to fit the needs of world's top athletes. All KASK helmets feature a luxurious moulded outer shell, in ABS which is made of quality acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, a common thermoplastic material with excellent impact resistance and toughness. This compound ensures dexterity with the light weight advantage. The inner lining is made of 100% Merino Wool which possess fantastic antibacterial qualities, providing unique breathability and superb thermoregulation. Helmets are available in four different shell sizes and a Merino Wool padding is then inserted for that perfect fit.

Introduced for the first time in the equestrian market, the patented FIT System allows KASK helmets to ergonomically fit the rider’s head by gently cradling the nape of the skull, allowing the helmet to sit correctly and comfortably. The inner shell comprises three density levels to ensure total shock protection, featuring two honeycomb-like aeration grids, the smart ventilation system provides rapid cooling and excellent airflow. As a finishing touch, the helmets are wrapped with a special textile material, which is waterproof, scratch resistant and easily washable with the KASK helmet cleaning kit. KASK does not compromise when it comes to quality and safety.

KASK equestrian helmets meet the following certifications:
