SKS USA has picked up Cratoni Helmets and will be kicking them off in the US with a bang.
The new Cratoni Rocket claims to tip the scales at an impressively light 190g, impressive for a fully featured XC brain bucket. The shell uses an inmold construction with a polycarbonate reinforcement at the rear. Pads are CoolMax, and the vents are fairly massive, which should help it keep your head cool even when grunting up the climbs.
Right now, that weight’s for an EU-approved model. SKS USA general manager Mark Burgener says the US version should be close, within 5g to 10g.
Burgener says they’ll be importing “the cool ones”, including the Rocket, Bullet, Tracer, the Blaze and the C-Bolt. What makes these attractive, beyond the weights, is that they’re all pretty fairly priced. The Blaze comes in around $70 (target) and the Rocket and Bullet are at $160 (also target price, not set in stone). Others should fall between that range, and they all should be available at retail in mid-June.
