Up for sale is my 4 months old cycling helmet Kask Vertigo C50 helmet - Size Large (59-62 cm).
It's approved under the Australian Standard regulations (as per label you can see in picture 7).
This is Italian Made Kask's top of the range and it's the same helmet used by Team Sky Procycling - including Chris Froome and Sir Bradley Wiggins (pictures 2 and 3 - please note Froome and Wiggo are not part of this sale!) ;)
It's full black in colour (you might have noticed it from the photos!) and the stickers are Hi-Vis (reflective for added safety during night rides). It's very comfortable and light (the company reports a weight of 270 grams), fully adjustable and the CoolMax inner padding can be removed and washed.
My wife bought this helmet for me in early January 2013 (still have the receipt, the box and the booklets! see picture 8) but I must admit I've never fell in love with its looks and now I'm looking into buying a new one if I can offload this one at a reasonable price.
The helmet has seen some use mostly for my weekend rides, for a total of 2,500 Km approximately. It was cleaned regularly, and usually rests in the protective bag it came in.
The conditions are very good (as shown in pictures 1, 4, 5 and 6). It was never involved in a crash.
There are, however, small signs of use. A tiny storage mark is visible on the right side (see picture 9) and there are a few tiny scratches on the left side (see picture 10) - the helmet was hanging from the handlebar during a coffee shop stop, a kid ran past and bumped into the bars, and the helmet got lightly scratched against the wall the bike was leaning on.
You can see those marks only from up close but I am obviously pointing them out because if I was a perspective buyer I would want to read all fine prints.
Finally, two of the light blue pads in the inside have come off through normal use (the arrows in picture 11 point where the pads used to be). This does not affect, in my opinion, the wearability to the point that I have noticed they were gone just taking the photos for this ad.
