How could we leave Kask off the list? This particular model, the Valegro, weighs just 189g and was debuted by Team Sky at last year’s Tour de France. Featuring 36 air vents, it combines aerodynamic efficiency with nextlevel cooling. Kask says the helmet padding contact points are 70 per cent smaller than other helmet designs, which ups the cooling effect of the Valegro even further. The pads are made from 5mm-thick fast-wicking material, which will ultimately help absorb sweat, and keep your face moisture-free as a result. ² Weight: 189g ² Price: R3 999
