The superior quality of the KASK styling and workmanship that has gone into these helmets is evident in the overall finish and attention to detail in every feature.

This allows the back of the head to be cradled by the straps, which are then easily tightened to the correct tension by a central ratchet wheel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RayTO Light, secure and comfy
I am impressed with the K50 helmet. It's amazingly light at around 300gms. I have a Rudy Project Sterling which is heavier, and a Giro Monza and this Kask is close to in weight to the Monza.
But it fits my head like a glove. I am asian and have a roundish skull. I find the Giro can have hot spots on my temples. The K50 doesn't.
The retention system is such that when you have it on properly, even without the chin strap buckled, it will not fly off your head. It's a big step up on the Monza and Rudy Project here.
The retention basket is hinged so it can fit the shape of the back of your head better and it makes it more secure.
the straps around your ears and the chin strip are separate. Giving it better customizability to your head. And the chin strap has a soft cover on it. It has a simple buckle so you can remove it with 1 hand.
I am really impressed with the finish of the helmet. Unlike my other two helmets, the polycarbonate also covers the underside. Very nice finish.
I've added photos of the strap and retention system because the product images don't show it. But these are major selling features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Awesome lightweight helmet
My old specialized lid was getting a bit long in the tooth, so, I took to the Internet and decided to go for a Kask, my helmet arrived super quick from chain reaction. The helmet itself is very light, and takes a nice close profile line over your head, my previous helmet made me look like a mushroom! The fit is perfect, the up down adjuster is a great idea and allows you to fit your helmet snug anywhere on the nape of your neck, all the chin strap adjustment is done on the actual chin strap so there is no having to mess around with adjusting the straps over your ears, overall very pleased with my purchase.
