Klim Krios Vanquish Helmet 

Vanquishing the notion that an Adventure helmet must be a compromise falling short in performance of designated off-road and street-specific helmets, Klim has broken new ground with the Klim Krios Helmet and demanded that no concessions be made in either department. High Performance Carbon-Fiber construction makes the Klim Krios Adventure Helmet one of the lightest weight adventure helmets ever created, while both ECE and DOT standards testify that Klim has not sacrificed strength of the shell or safety to do so. The Klimatek Fabric liner system and aerodynamically superior design combine to create an acoustically peaceful riding experience. Four different riding configurations can be achieved quickly and without the use of tools, making the Klim Krios Adventure Helmet the most versatile, technologically advanced ADV helmet ever. 

The Vanquish graphic adds a killer edge to the already eye catching Krios. Aggressive lines and exposed hand-laid carbon make the Krios Vanquish helmet look as fast as you are.

Features:

  • Includes Pinlock-ready clear face shield, Pinlock-ready dark smoke face shield and 1 Pinlock insert
  • Hand-laid full-carbon shell features a wide carbon weave
  • Aerodynamic visor and spoiler attributes to stabilize and put riders’ heads at ease
  • Klimatek Fabric liner systems utilize adaptive smart foam technology and anti-microbial/bacterial fast-wicking textiles
  • Quick release shield and visor system requiring only a simple, 90 degree quarter-turn to lock/unlock
  • Intelligent ventilation system ensures riders will keep their cool when the terrain heats up
  • Airflow through the chin bar vent and a close-able top vent make it comfortable from slow-to-go
  • Includes chin curtain
  • Quickly transition from Street to Off-Road or to any of four riding modes quickly and without tools
  • Klim Radius Goggle compatible
  • Pinlock-ready Polycarbonate anti-scratch face shield
  • 2 shell sizes: SM-MD, LG-3XL
  • Meets or exceeds ECE and DOT standards
  • Available online only, not available in stores

Great summer helmet
I purchased this as a second helmet to my Shoei RF1200. This one is noticeably lighter, thanks to the carbon fiber construction I'm sure. The field of vision is better, and airflow is excellent. I like the look, the dual-purpose design gives it a different character than the street-only Shoei. It's also very comfortable to wear, as well as put on and take off. Taking off the Shoei can cost you your ears if you're not careful, not so with the Krios. There's also plenty of room for my Sena speakers in the ear wells. On the downside, it feels like the visor causes a bit of drag at high speeds, wanting to pull your head back. I adjusted the angle and managed to mitigate most of that, but there's still a little bit there. The Krios is also louder than the RF1200. It's not terrible, but you'll notice going from one to the other. I'm guessing that's the trade-off for the better breathing and lighter weight. There are no adjustments for airflow, either, no vents to close. I imagine that'll make it a little colder in the winter. I plan to wear this in the summer, though, so it should be fine. Riding with the visor up doesn't cause nearly the whistling the RF1200 does, but it's pretty buggy where i live, so i don't do it much anyway. The feel of whatever brain-eating monster bug that just flew inside your helmet crawling around on your face where you can't reach it puts a damper on open-visor riding...

I'd definitely recommend this helmet, and RevZilla, if you're looking for a new lid.

Klim always delivers exactly what you want
I love love love everything about this helmet, only complaint is my friend bought one and got a really trick bag with his. Mine didn't come with one and I'm slightly agitated over that that. But other than that, perfect choice for an ADV helmet.

Excellent Helmet!
Just finished up about 1200 miles in this helmet over the last two weeks. I first ordered a large (my usual helmet size) and it was way too big, I returned it and got the medium. Now the medium took a bit of breaking in to make putting on and taking it off comfortable but now it's absolutely perfect. The fit once on has been comfy and secure since the first time I wore it. The shield is amazing it comes with a clear and smoked both are great! The helmet works great for me in "street" mode with the visor off (900 miles on pavement with no visor and it felt like any nice street helmet) and it's really not bad even at 80Mph+ with the visor on. Also I rode for almost 300 miles in 100+ heat and I don't think I'd wear another helmet anywhere near the desert again, it was amazing and kept me from cooking. This is a fantastically styled and really cool helmet, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for that one perfect ADV helmet.

Best ADV Helmet Currently Available, but needs some refinement
Pros-The Krios helmet was excellent for my long ride. It is lighter and has more the feel of a dirtbike helmet, but still keeps your face well sealed from the elements. I have worn a number of helmets over the years from all manufacturers. This feels light like my AGV Corsa helmet, but is definitely larger and includes a larger windscreen and visor. I found that with the windscreen in place, I was well protected from the dust. I was only in rain for about 20 minutes over the two weeks, so I can't comment on how the helmet really holds up in the rain. It does use a pinlock (included with the helmet when purchased), and seemed to do just fine in the short shower we rode in.

Cons- I wore earplugs during the ride, but the helmet would be pretty noisy without the plugs. I think that is something that you get with lightweight helmets though. They are focused on comfort and performance, but do not use as much padding etc to reduce wind noise. I also found that the one vent on the helmet was almost impossible to adjust while riding, especially once it started to get dust in it. Around the last day of the trip, I noticed that the piping that surrounds the face on the helmet had also started to separate, but KLIM is starting a warranty claim for me on this now. One other note, is that although the helmet appeared to be a perfect fit when I tried it on at the shop, after maybe 2-3 hours of riding I found that the front was creating a hot spot on my forehead and left a good sized mark. The helmet doesn't have a lot of padding inside, and you start to feel the hard foam after a bit. I have never really had that problem with any other helmet I have worn. It really reminds me more of a dirt-bike helmet converted for street use than a dirt worthy road helmet.

Overall, I was very happy with this helmet and think it is the best helmet available for this type of riding. My older brother also bought this helmet and was more than happy with it. He had similar complaints on the ventilation and noise, but overall we were happy. My dad had the Schuberth E1 and really liked it as well, but he also loves modular helmets. The helmet was too heavy for me and I personally do not like modular helmets. His was probably much more quiet and provided more padding than mine did though.

Really wanted to love this helmet.
current using an Aria Xd4 medium I was really looking forward to this helmet.
Took my time measuring my head and ordered a Large.
Received the helmet and was amazed how light it was true it on and it was way too big.
Got a medium shipped and was surprised that I could hardly get it on, the shell is tiny.
The padding inside is thin and feels more like round than oval helmet.
Comparing the quality with the XD4, I have a feeling I will keep the XD4.
