The Kask Vertigo helmet is one of the safest, best fitting and most stylish helmets available. In particular, the Vertigo incorporates a unique hinged adjustment system that allows for both size and up/down adjustment, which together comfortably cradle the nape of the neck.

Date Reviewed: June 20, 2014

Strengths:    Very comfortable when the helmet is in one piece and the silicon pads are not falling off and the tighting knob is attached to the helmet

Weaknesses:    Helmet falls apart

Bottom Line:   
I've had this helmet for 18 months and the adjustment knob has fallen off 4 times. Twice on the trail. One silicon pad is now gone and a strap cover has also fallen off. For a $300 dollar helmet you'd think that it would stay together. My last helmet lasted 10 years (Gyro) and the one before that 7 years (Bell) This helmet cost more then the combined cost of my last 2 helmets. It took me 3 weeks to get Kask to send me the warranty items I needed the last time to fix this thing. Heck it took them 2 weeks to respond to my e-mail and they only got back to me after I complained on their Facebook page.

Date Reviewed: June 15, 2012

Strengths:    superb comfort, stays in place

Weaknesses:    velcro strips could easily come off helmet frame, visor is a little too low in most circumstances

Bottom Line:   
This is one very expensive helmet, but its tightening system is superb and the frame shape seems far better that all others I have tried.

I love what I've seen from Vertigo Cycles out of Portland Oregon. When I visit the website the "news" ends in 2011 and the blog dries u ... Read More »

Vertigo Cycles Fatbike

So I've been ruminating a fatbike for a while now, talked in earnest to several builders, but finally hired Sean of Vertigo Cycles to build one for me. I decided to go with him because he's an innovative, down to earth, good guy. It didn't hurt that he used to be local, knows how I ride and where I ... Read More »

Who's Vertigo at the show?

I came up and talked to you and Sean on Sunday. Hope your trip back to Scotland goes well. You have a beautiful bike there, and I enjoyed the conversation! It's a shame that Sean didn't win best Ti, but I guess that's how it goes. LosRead More »
