Brad Waldron, Kali Protectives’ Founder and chief engineer, designs his helmets with one concept in mind; “Smaller and lighter is better.” The TAVA™, our first aero road helmet, embodies that statement in both the technology used in its construction and its performance.
Three elements contribute to the TAVA™’s breakthrough design, safety, and performance.
BUMPER FIT™ 2.0: Kali’s solution to addressing low-g and rotational impacts. Consists of specially designed armor gel pads placed through the interior of the helmet. While improving fit and comfort, it also reduces the effects of low-G impacts by 12% and reduces rotational forces by as much as 30%.
COMPOSITE FUSION™ Squared: Nano Core foam insert, with both inwardly and outwardly facing cones, in-molded with soft EPS foam, producing an extremely low-volume helmet that doesn’t sacrifice safety for size.
Best in class aerodynamics: The combination of BUMPER FIT™ 2.0 and COMPOSITE FUSION™ Squared allowed Kali to make the TAVA™ an extremely low volume (small) helmet, improving aerodynamics in all wind conditions, especially crosswinds. The TAVA™’s design reduces drag by an average of 50 grams at a 5 degree offset, saving 25 seconds over a 50 km race.
The TAVA™ was awarded the Design & Innovation Award 2016.
