While some manufacturers project an aura of seriousness, Kali Protectives prefers a more lighthearted approach. Yes, their new $250 aero road helmet is backed by a host of bold wind cheating claims. But it’s also right at home on gravel, dirt or wherever else you chose to ride. Check out this video for proof of that.
Despite this more casual approach, the new Tava looks to be a serious competitor in the aero road helmet arena. Indeed, Kali claims that wind tunnel testing performed by an independent party found its new brain protector reduced drag by an average of 50 grams at a 5-degree offset, which translates to a half second savings per kilometer, or 25 seconds over 50km.
In addition to being fast, the Tava marks the debut of Kali’s new Bumper Fit 2.0 technology, which is designed to reduce damage from low speed impacts and rotational forces.
