Odyssey X Kali Protectives Helmet
Posted by Nuno on Aug 19, 2016

At Odyssey we have always looked for ways to improve the parts that we use. Better parts can make your riding more enjoyable and allow you to ride longer, and the same thing can be said for the equipment that’s not directly bolted to your bike. It goes without saying that wearing a helmet is almost always a good decision, whether it’s because a skatepark demands it, or just because you’ve realized that being sidelined with an injury is not worth the time and hassle. After 30 years in BMX we’ve seen what can happen when people aren’t wearing safety gear, and because of this we’re always thinking of new ways to reduce the possible chance of injuries. Whenever we’ve discussed helmets in the past we were often discouraged to see so many people wearing designs that are little more than basic hard hats; meaning that they provide all the fit-related inconvenience of a helmet while providing only minimal protection against actual injuries.

Developing our own helmet from scratch seemed like a big undertaking for us as a component-driven company, so we began talking directly with helmet manufacturers. Our experience has shown us that most of the stock helmets out there are very basic and traditional, and for the most part they have only embraced some minor technical advancements during the last 20 years. As our research continued we quickly discovered Kali Protectives, a brand that has a passion for technical advancement that’s a lot like our own. Kali’s R&D team are constantly looking at what they can do to make helmets safer, thinner and more comfortable. The more we learned, the more we liked, so went to talk to them and soon found that we were both on a similar wavelength when it came to focusing on the helmet’s safety, fit and durability. As a result of this meeting, we are very pleased to offer Kali’s proven and cutting edge technology in our new VIVA collaboration helmet.

THE TECH:

Kali’s patented Composite Fusion Three technology molds the shock-absorbing foam layer directly into the hard outer shell. This means that the shell and the foam work together as a uniform composite structure rather than as two separate elements. This makes for a more efficient construction, so the bulkiness of the helmet can be reduced, while the amount of protection offered by the design increases.

The result of this technology is that Kali can make helmets that offer more protection, while also being both smaller and more comfortable. By partnering with Kali Protectives we are now able to bring these technological advances to BMXers at a similar price to ordinary low-tech helmets. We’re confident that you’ll be as impressed with the Viva as we were.

Helmets available now at $54.99 retail. Dealers please contact Full Factory Distro.

Also available on our online store.
