Ventilate and protect.

More air forced through frontal vents equals better cooling; the downfall of larger openings is often weakened overall structure. The Maraka XC Helmet's 25 vents include five with Kali Protectives' Supervent technology to maximize air intake and, most importantly, to easily pass tough CPSC safety standards.

These polycarbonate-reinforced openings feed 20 exhaust vents distributed throughout the Maraka XC's shell — and the Supervents help achieve a 300-gram weigh in. Contributing to the low weight is an in-mold structure like most high-end helmets, but Kali's use of carbon and polycarbonate materials takes it a step further. This Fusion Plus technology also includes geometric shapes of softer EPS foam next to your head.

This means variable-density, cone-shaped foam will compress and direct energy sideways, away from your head. For padding, Kali's Bumper Fit System's absorbent, cross-linked polymer wicks and is soft against your skin, while also helping to absorb shock. Finally, a Dual Closure provides intuitive fit with quick and precise adjustments.

The Kali Protectives Maraka XC Helmet comes in three sizes: X-Small/small (50-54cm), Small/medium(54-58cm), and Medium/large(58-64cm).

Great bang for the buck!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S/M

Based on the venting, fit and overall apparent quality of the Maraka XC, I have a lot of faith in it! Extremely comfortable without any fussing with padding, etc. Works well with a "beenie" cap, or without. For the cost, it's hard to beat! I hope I never have to "use" it, but if I do I feel like I'm in good hands.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Super happy with these helmets. Tons of vents, makes it a lot more enjoyable riding here in Tennessee. The adjustability of this helmet is great and easy. With the simple one hand clasp in the back I'm able to adjust while I ride. Would recommend to anyone.

The Fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The fit of the Kali Maraka XC is like none other. I keep feeling for hot spots or looseness but it fits like it was custom made for my head.. It is very light weight and the ventilation amazing. I would recommend trying this on after you tried the other's on, this may be the helmet for you.

Super cush

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is the most comfortable helmet I have ever put on my head. The conformable foam inside, shape and padding conspire to make it feel like a feather pillow. Have not and hope not to test the impact protection, but that was also a selling point. The retention system seems very secure with the straps anchored to plastic pieces molded into the helmet, and an easy to use and secure ratchet in the back. Looks cool too. And it seems to hold sunglasses (straight arms) in the vents pretty well, although upside down is best.
