Kali sent over some details of a new helmet they’ve created called the Maya.
Would you rather be hit by a 2×4 or a pillow? It’s a stupid question, but one that our current helmet standards don’t do enough to address. So we’ve built our Maya using a combination of cone shaped multi-density EPS, paired with a softer density foam around the head.
This combination of materials allows us to use our lowest foam density ever. While helmets typically utilize a foam density between 100-120 g per cubit liter, the density in our Maya is around 70 g.
The benefit to using this softer foam is that it dissipates impacts faster and more efficiently.
In our pursuit of safety, we haven’t forgotten the other features that make helmets “Enduro” worthy. Which is why the Maya incorporates things like an integrated camera and light mount and a break resistant moto style visor. Other features include an antimicrobial liner with bug netting, our floating dual closure system for easy adjustments, and twelve vents with internal channeling for great ventilation.
