Racing the Land Run 100 with Vittoria
Lastly, here is you intrepid author before the start of the race, smiling, clean, and sporting Catlike’s new Mixino helmet, which is claimed to be the only helmet that uses Graphene (like some of Vittoria’s tires) to enhance the aramid fiber “rollcage” that’s molded into the EPS shell. This is designed to strengthen the helmet and drop weight. You can learn more about this technology here and here. It’s also worth noting that the helmet is designed to take multiple impacts, while some other helmets are designed for just one hit. On a personal note, we found the fit to be truly impressive. Once dialed the helmet floated comfortably on our head to the point where it would stay in pace even without clicking closed the chin strap.
