The Kask Mojito³ has long been a popular helmet, pairing comfortable fit and good ventilation with its sometimes divisive angular aesthetics. Now this latest generation gets a bit of an aero overhaul, packaging significantly improved crash protection into more subdued design that still calls back to the original Mojitos…
Kask Mojito³ light, vented, semi-aero road helmet
From the angled three-quarter view, the new Kask Mojito³ looks almost nothing like the original.
The new helmet gets a much less-pointy shape overall, with larger flat areas that were completed avoided in the original – a nod to making aerodynamic improvements.
But Kask calls the Mojito iconic in their catalog and still pulls inspiration from the original.
From its signature pointed tail to head-on front & rear views that look surprisingly familiar, there are still hints of the original Italian design.
But now even with many fewer openings, the new Mojito³ claims both better ventilation and improved aerodynamics. Much larger front & rear openings combine with internal channeling to increase airflow over your head. But the more closed-off top reduces drag at the same time.
Improved safety & Tech details
The biggest update in the reshaping of Kask’s Mojito³ though, is improved safety. Combining several elements like the extra, lower protection in the rear, updated two-part polycarbonate in-mold shell over EPS construction, and larger spacing between vents, Kask says the new version is safer than ever – far exceeding European safety standards. In fact, Kask claims the Mojito³ delivers protection improvements of +32% on rear impacts, +25% in frontal impacts & +12% in top impacts vs. the previously certified Mojito X.
Inside Kask’s own Blue Tech pads offer great comfort excellent sweat wicking that I can attest to. Another great feature of the original that carries over is wide fit adjustability. The Octo Fit dial retention offers pretty standard precision adjustment around the back of your head, but adds in plenty of vertical movement for more adjustability than most other helmets. And the new split shape of this latest Octo Fit frame at the rear still keeps it ponytail-friendly.
All that and still a lightweight at 230g (M), and at a price generally a bit lower than other premium road helmets. Kask officially locates the Mojito in their second-tier of road helmets, calling it a more affordable & versatile choice for any cyclist from the budding road racer to bike commuters. The new Mojito is available in three sizes: S (50-56cm), M (52-58cm) & L (59-62cm).
