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’ve strengthened the helmet for side impacts (the most dangerous), optimized the design with a shape that’s tailored for better rock protection, and added the MIPS AIR® system.
The Ekoï Gara is the first helmet to be designed to protect against side impacts
The comfort is also paramount as our pro teams wear the helmet virtually every day whether racing or training, the model’s 3 sizes allow for a helmet fit as close to the skull as possible.
The lightness is essential whether it’s for the 293 Ekoï pro athletes wearing it in 2022 or for our customers. A good helmet should be forgettable.
The 20 ventilations in 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.
It has been adopted in 2022 by the pro teams Cofidis, Lotto Soudal, Qhubeka, Arkea Samsic, Euskaltel Euskadi, KMC Orbea, BMC MTB Racing,so we are sure to offer you one of the best helmets in the world.
EQUIPPED WITH THE MIPS AIR® SYSTEM
MIPS AIR® is designed to reduce the rotational movement of the head during certain angular impacts.
MIPS AIR® was specifically developed and designed to be the lightest possible system to reduce the rotational energies transferred to the head during specific angular impacts.
MIPS AIR® replaces traditional Gara foams and allows 10-15 mm of relative movement between the helmet and the rider’s head.
