News: Kali Protectives Launches New Maya Enduro Helmet

Deep coverage helmet boasts excellent safety and amazing price.

All Mountain Trail Enduro Gear Helmets

We got a first look at the Kali Protectives Maya helmet back at the Bike Press Camp event and also at Interbike. The production versions are now ready and Kali has released some new photos and a killer video of Jeff Kendall Weed rockin’ the new lid.

The Maya is a full coverage all mountain/enduro style helmet that uses Kali’s cone shaped multi-density EPS combined with a softer density foam around the head. This produces the lowest foam density of any Kali helmet ever. What does this mean? The official word from Kali explains, ” While helmets typically utilize a foam density between 100-120 g per cubit liter, the density in our Maya is around 70 g. The benefit to using this softer foam is that it dissipates impacts faster and more efficiently.”

Besides safety, the Maya also has cool features like an integrated camera and light mount and a flexible, break-resistant moto style visor (dubbed the “FlexyBill”). The helmet also has an antimicrobial liner with bug netting, floating dual closure system for easy adjustments and 12 vents with internal channeling for increased air flow. That Maya’s claimed weight is 350 grams and the best part may be the price. The Maya is a top level helmet that costs a scant $100. It is available in S/M and M/L sizes and comes in Matte Black, EnduroBro Blue and White/Black Duo. The helmet is shipping now.

    I own a Kali with with the integrated light/camera attachment. I still can’t find a light that works with this feature. Frustrating!

    • Rick says:

      I had a serfas mount I modified and attached to their included adapter, light must be very light, I use the serfas 500 which is light and it still feels front heavy.

      nice helmet.

  • Jon says:

    Mr.K,
    This mount works great with Light & Motion lights.
    I heard rumor that more mounts are in the works.

  • Andy E says:

    Light and camera mounts should be toward a rear of the helmet. Unless the light or camera is really light the helmet will be too front heavy.

  • Jason says:

    We need more color choice!
