    Reliable strength.

    While helmets punctured with vents like Swiss cheese keep your head cool, they need to be engineered to be as strong as shells with more structural surface area. The Kali Protectives Maraka XC Helmet’s 25 vents keep the air flowing and still pass rigorous CPSC safety standards.

    Kali Protectives uses Supervents, which are polycarbonate-reinforced openings to feed the 20 air ports that are placed around the Maraka XC. The entire shell has been constructed using an in-mold process, much like most high-end helmets, but to add strength, Kali adds carbon and polycarbonate to stiffen the shell. To assist with absorbing and redistributing impact, Fusion Plus technology places softer EPS foam close to the head and harder foam toward the exterior of the shell. This variable-density design helps to move the energy from an impact sideways and away from your head. Additional Bumper Fit padding provides a soft interface between the helmet and your head. To secure the Maraka XC, an adjustable Dual Closure is used.

    Great bang for the buck!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: S/M

    Based on the venting, fit and overall apparent quality of the Maraka XC, I have a lot of faith in it! Extremely comfortable without any fussing with padding, etc. Works well with a "beenie" cap, or without. For the cost, it's hard to beat! I hope I never have to "use" it, but if I do I feel like I'm in good hands.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Super happy with these helmets. Tons of vents, makes it a lot more enjoyable riding here in Tennessee. The adjustability of this helmet is great and easy. With the simple one hand clasp in the back I'm able to adjust while I ride. Would recommend to anyone.

    The Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The fit of the Kali Maraka XC is like none other. I keep feeling for hot spots or looseness but it fits like it was custom made for my head.. It is very light weight and the ventilation amazing. I would recommend trying this on after you tried the other's on, this may be the helmet for you.

    The Fit

    Super cush

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This is the most comfortable helmet I have ever put on my head. The conformable foam inside, shape and padding conspire to make it feel like a feather pillow. Have not and hope not to test the impact protection, but that was also a selling point. The retention system seems very secure with the straps anchored to plastic pieces molded into the helmet, and an easy to use and secure ratchet in the back. Looks cool too. And it seems to hold sunglasses (straight arms) in the vents pretty well, although upside down is best.
