Kali Protectives has been a longtime manufacturer and innovator in the motocross and action sports segments of the helmet world. It has had offerings for street riding in recent years, but the Catalyst is on a whole different level.
Featuring full carbon-fiber construction, it is both lightweight and good looking. The helmet weighs in at 1,350 grams (less than 3 pounds) and is ECE and DOT certified. It features Kali’s proprietary LDL safety tech construction that is said to better handle rotational and linear impacts. The Catalyst’s seven vents and integrated airflow system do a great job of pulling in air. We found the helmet to be superbly comfortable on our head and loved its looks.
