Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling is delighted to announce that the team will partner with Kask Helmets and its eyewear subsidiary Koo in 2017. The black and orange team will wear Infinity, Protone and Bambino Pro helmets, as well as Koo’s innovative new Open sunglasses. The riders will be resplendent in their new helmets and sunglasses as they take the start of the Santos Women’s Tour in Adelaide, South Australia, this Friday, 14th of January.
“As the owner of Wiggle High5 I’m extremely proud of our new partnership with Kask,” said Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling’s General Manager Rochelle Gilmore.
“Our team looks like a scene of striking beauty, riding in style with a heightened element of confidence.
“Kask have taken their commitment to Women’s Cycling to a new level,” Gilmore continued. “Our partnership with Kask will ensure that their products become the perfect choice for all women riding bikes. We’re committed, Kask are committed, and we will achieve great results together.
“Look good, feel good, go good……Happy athletes result in winning performances.”
The Infinity and Protone helmets have both been tested in the wind tunnel to give them maximum aerodynamics, with the Infinity featuring a sliding Aero Control shell, which closes over the three large front vents to cheat the wind and gain as much advantage as possible over the competition. The helmets remain secure thanks to its Octo Fit retention system, while Kask’s MIT technology guarantees higher safety and complete protection, thanks to the polycarbonate layer that covers the shell on top, on the base ring and at the back.
The Bambino Pro time trial helmet shares similar fit and safety features with the Infinity and Protone, while its wind tunnel tested shape makes it exceptionally aerodynamic, whatever position the rider’s head is in. The Bambino Pro also features a removable visor, held in place by five magnets, whose total adherence to the helmet allows for continuous airflow and greater aerodynamics.
Koo Open sunglasses have been developed to perfectly compliment Kask’s helmets, but are casual enough to look cool off the bike too. The unique indexed arms allow the wearer to angle the lenses perfectly to fit their face, while they rotate completely to fit the shape of the lens and fold away much smaller than other glasses.
The Zeiss lenses are easily interchangeable by simply twisting the two retaining tabs, positioned on either side.
“Working with both men’s and women’s teams at varying levels globally adds an extra dimension to the KASK brand,” said Ylenia Battistello, KASK Cycling Brand Manager. “It means we can work closely with those at the top of their game to provide cutting edge design and technology for all.”
