The new Ekoï Gara ultralight helmet was designed with 5 goals in mind: protection, comfort, weight, ventilation, design.
The protection remains the first priority of a helmet, and the Ekoï Gara model must protect effectively in case of impact. We have strengthened the helmet in case of side impacts (the most dangerous) and optimized the model with a shape adapted to better rock protection.
The comfort is also paramount as our pro teams wear the helmet virtually every day whether racing or training, the 3 sizes of the model allow for a helmet fit as close to the skull as possible and the foams supplied offer a near custom fit.
The lightness is essential whether it’s for the 293 Ekoï pro athletes wearing it in 2021 or for our customers. A good helmet should be forgettable.
The 20 ventilations of this helmet allow airflow even in the hottest temperatures.
It was designed in Italy in consultation with some of our pro team riders and our Ekoi designers.
Tested on the Tour de France in September 2020 by our cycling teams, it has been adopted in 2022 by the pro teams Cofidis, Lotto Soudal, Qhubeka Nexthash, Arkea Samsic, Euskaltel Euskadi, KMC Orbea, BMC MTB Racing, thus, we are sure to offer you one of the best helmets in the world.
