The KRIOS is KLiM’s new beginning for ADV helmets – revitalizing standards in strength, performance and functionality while leaving traditional compromises behind. This is the lightest hi-end adventure helmet ever tested by us.
This must be the one Gear that we were most exited about. We have owned or tested almost all the hi-end Adventure helmets out there. Arai, Shoei .. you name it. We had settled to Arai for that last 4-5 year, buying all of their X-Tour and MX models. While being really plush and well built, our constant complain was the ridiculous weight of the helmets. Another problem was the presence of a lot of turbulence in hi-speeds, with all kinds of motorcycle used. From full-house BMW R1200GSA to naked KTM 950SE. Turbulence and head shake was always there.
Well, not any more !! The Krios literally eliminates these issues in all speeds, even with the visor on. The helmet remains rock solid in all speeds and literally weights nothing. The interior is very comfortable with the “hi-end feel” it should have for it’s price range and can be fully removed for washing in seconds. The aerodynamics do not let the helmet shake and the visor can be removed very fast – without any short of tool needed.
The one thing though that strikes you the most is the lack of weight. KLIM’s full-carbon KRIOS shell features a wide carbon weave at it’s core which is absolutely stunning to look (black & color options). You can wear it all day and feel that your head is fine (no headaches) and your neck hasn’t suffered from the ride. It is an absolute joy to wear, all day and in any situation helmet. This is the BEST Adventure helmet we have ever used!
