New KASK helmet designs for 30th Maratona
KASK creates two striking, limited edition helmets for legendary Gran Fondo
KASK is once again supporting the Maratona dles Dolomites, one of the world’s most challenging and picturesque one-day Gran Fondos which celebrates its 30th edition this July. The 2016 Maratona will be extra special as the route is shared with Queen stage of this year’s Giro d’Italia (Stage 14).
To celebrate this fantastic event, KASK has created limited edition versions of two of its most popular road helmets; the Mojito Maratona dles Dolomites (black and white) and the Protone Maratona dles Dolomites (black). The helmets incorporate the bright colours of the iconic Maratona logo and will be available via stores globally* all4cycling, and at the Maratona itself.
KASK will be showcasing these helmets for the first time at the Maratona exhibition area ‘La Villa’ from 30th June to 2nd July in San Leonardo, Badia. Both helmets will be available in either medium or large and will come in their own Maratona-Edition box.
