Kask Sintesi review - a great mid-range all-rounder, aside from having no glasses port

The Kask Sintesi packs in premium features and a respectably low weight - it would be a perfect mid-range option if not for its lack of stowability for sunglasses

Cycling Weekly Verdict

There are lighter, more ventilated and more aerodynamically sculpted helmets than the Kask Sintesi. But if you're looking for a comfortable all-rounder which comes in at a reasonable price, this is a particularly good option. There are premium elements, from the chin strap to the retention band, a reassuring focus on safety features and it comes in at an impressively lightweight for the price point.

Kask’s all-new Sintesi helmet ranks among the best road helmets we've tested. Its sleek, understated design blends in with multiple different riding genres, from fast road rides to more relaxed gravel explorations. 

This, coupled with solid build quality and WG11 safety group compliance makes the Sintesi pretty attractive, and even more so with its $120 / £90 price tag.
