Published on March 15th 2020


We were invited by Kask, to Bergamo, Italy for a Factory Tour! Kask showed us around their testing facility, including a first look at their new Defender helmet and how they have been rigorously testing it with all kinds of safety checks. Not only is the Defender strong but it's incredibly light! We sat down with the guys at Kask to talk design and hear how they're managed to shed the grams whilst not compromising on safety! In association with Kask: Subscribe: The GMBN Shop: Not only did we get to see into Kask's test facility, but they also showed us how a helmet is made, from the selection of materials & the different jobs they're meant to carry out, all the way up to the assembly of what you can buy in stores!
