The Konda continues Caberg’s innovative styling theme, and it looks somewhat reminiscent of the Caberg Trip.
Caberg said the Konda is the result of their long experience in producing flip-up helmets; in fact, Caberg says they were the first Italian company to produce a flip-up.
The company also said that the Konda “offers the safety as of a full face helmet together with the handiness of a jet helmet”.
We understand this to mean that the Konda can be worn with the visor rotated all the way up while riding, which is a feature pioneered by Caberg on the Sintesi (review) helmet.
The Konda also features a “Double Visor Tech” system with an internally rotating sun visor. The transparent face shield is claimed scratch- and fog-resistant.
Caberg said that the visor quick release system doesn�t require the use of tools. The liner in the Konda is removable and washable and includes hypoallergenic and moisture-wicking fabrics.
Other features of the Caberg Konda include:
The EPS liner also includes channels to assist ventilation.
The chin strap on the Konda uses an adjustable buckle.
Ventilation is provided by an air vent on top and by a series of air inlet channels on the chin guard.
A chin curtain is standard.
The Konda is also preset for the Caberg “Just Speak” wireless Bluetooth communication system. This system acts as a rider-to-passenger intercom; it connects with a cell phone; a GPS system and can stream music from an MP3 player.
The outer shell of the Konda is made from thermoplastic.
The chin guard uses a single opening button.
Available sizes will include XS, S, M, L and XL.
The helmet is homologated to ECE 22.05 safety standards as a full-face helmet.
Colors include Metal Black; Matte Black; White; Silver. The Konda will also be available in the graphic version shown above, which features a Matte Black base.
