Kask creates new model for Maratona dles Dolomites

To celebrate the 2018 edition of the single-day Maratona dles Dolomites, Kask has created a limited edition version of the Valegro – the Valegro MDD.

The new design incorporates the Maratona’s rainbow-coloured 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 model, which recently won an IF Design Award, has a polycarbonate shell, and was tested and refined by Kask’s in-house engineers in conjunction with a wind tunnel to create what the brand believe to be an optimum race design.

The Valegro sports increased ventilation and a weight of 180g. The design offers 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.

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 will take place on Sunday 1st July 2018.
