Kali City Helmet Avatar X (2)

Murphy would approve. Perhaps in a sign of things to come, Kask wasn’t the only company showing off lifestyle helmets fit for Robocop. For one of their newest helmets, Kali’s City helmet features an integrated shield along with classic Kali styling. Helmets with stowable shields seem to be growing in popularity along with e-bikes and commuting, but even so Kali is cautiously optimistic about how the City will sell in the US.

The U.S. market won’t be getting the full line of Cities, but there will be at least one. Get the details, plus a new full face after the break…

Just because the City is geared towards commuting doesn’t mean it’s not packed with technology or features. Using Kali’s high end Composite Fusion Plus foam with Conehead technology, the helmet should offer excellent protection along with an ABS/Polycarbonate shell. Along with removable ear flaps and an interchangeable visor with clear or smoke lenses, the helmet will also include an integrated rear light.

At the moment Kali is planning on bringing in just the black City to the U.S. which will retail for $125. Want the other colors? Let Kali know.

The new Avatar X is a full face helmet that slots in between the current Avatar, and the high end Avatar II. Avatar X splits the difference going to the more advanced Composite Fusion Plus shell and liner construction found in the Avatar II, but keeps the price lower with a fiberglass based shell as found on the Avatar.

The changes result in a super protective lid that will retail for $299, with availability this Spring.

Joel, can you share where you got it? I am trying to buy one. Obviously I have no experience with the City, but with other helmets that have that kind of shield, each side of the shield has a locating hole and a keyhole-shaped slot. On such designs, you pull down on the front part of the shield to disengage the slot from a pin, and then you push the rear of the shield inward to push the hole off of a pin that is open on the inside. But as I say, this is speculation on my part.
