Cycling Weekly Verdict

Thomas More was sceptical that the utopia described by Raphael Hythloday in his novel was possible or even desirable. In that respect the Kask Utopia exceeds the billing it has been given. If you can afford the premium ticket price, then this is a voyage to Utopia worth boarding.

The Kast Utopia was selected for an Editor's Choice award in 2020. This year's list contains 78 items which scored a 9 or 10/10 with our tech team - this gear is the best of the best, and has received the Cycling Weekly stamp of approval. 

Not many bits of cycling kit can trace their roots all the way back to 1516, but this one can. Sort of. That’s when British philosopher Thomas More wrote his landmark book Utopia, describing a fictional perfect human society. The marketing department at Kask has, it’s safe to say, given this premium aero road helmet some fairly lofty standards to live up to.

Having trained as a journalist at Cardiff University I spent eight years working as a business journalist covering everything from social care, to construction to the legal profession and riding my bike at the weekends and evenings. When a friend told me Cycling Weekly was looking for a news editor, I didn't give myself much chance of landing the role, but I did and joined the publication in 2016. Since then I've covered Tours de France, World Championships, hour records, spring classics and races in the Middle East. On top of that, since becoming features editor in 2017 I've also been lucky enough to get myself sent to ride my bike for magazine pieces in Portugal and across the UK. They've all been fun but I have an enduring passion for covering the national track championships. It might not be the most glamorous but it's got a real community feeling to it.
