Kali Avatar 2 Carbon Helmet

Kali Avatar™ 2 Carbon Helmet

The AVATAR™ 2 Helmet is lightweight. Super light. In fact, the only thing more interesting than its light weight is how strong it is. Utilizing patented COMPOSITE FUSION™ in-molding technology for a perfect shell/liner connection, this full-face helmet also features a revolutionary mix of Kevlar, Carbon Fiber and Fiberglass in its shell materials. These materials form perfectly into a skeleton of expanded protection allowing the overall use of softer CONTEGO™ EPS foam.

What’s it all mean? Light. Strong. Weighing in at a claimed 849 grams, the AVATAR™ helmet provides the new reference in lightweight, full-featured and expanded coverage downhill biking helmets.

  • Tri-Weave Shell featuring Kevlat, Carbon Fiber and Fiberglass materials
  • Composite Fusion Shell/Liner connection
  • Low Density Contego EPS foam for greater impact absorption
  • Integrated Airflow System
  • Washable, adjustable, anti microbial fit pads
  • Breakaway visor
  • CPSC and EN 1078 compliant

Light, Strong and Comfortable
I tried the Troy Lee D3 Carbon, POC Coretex DH, and had a 661 Comp previously. All of my helmets have been the Medium/Large size 57-58 range. I am keeping the Kali Avatar II.

Kali had the best field of view of all the helmets I tried, with the POC Coretex DH a close second. The D3 visor and face guard are large and while not in the way, were much more noticeable.

Venting isn't the best- The D3 does have more vents, but to it's fault the entire inner shell under the removable insert has cutouts- which were very noticeable on the top/ back of my head- I couldn't imagine taking an impact with these rails digging into my skull.

A huge plus in my book is the cutouts around the ears in the Kali, while not totally exposed like a Giro, it allows very good hearing and some air circulation.

The POC fit was just strange, I tried the Medium- and the neck and cheek area were good, but the top was too loose- guess it would be ok if you wore a skull cap under the helmet.

661 comp had great venting, but was significantaly heavier than the Kali, and the field of view was much smaller.

I have Oakley Airbrake MX goggles, and they fit great on the Kali, POC, TLD, and 661.

The Kali is nearly as light as my Bell Super 2r and on par with my wife's MET Parachute- but offers much greater protection with full ratings.

PROS: Lightweight, Tough, Comfortable Fit

CONS: No Ventilation
