Limar is known for producing the lightest helmet in the world at just 175g for the Ultralight model. It goes without saying that these exceptionally light helmets are favoured by a number of top professional cycling teams including: Astana, Direct Energie and the Topeak Ergon team.


Whilst a light helmet is a bonus, Limar continues to ensure very high safety standards are met as well as ensuring the helmets have superior ventilation, an ergonomic fit and added safety through the addition of a red LED light to some of the models.


Riders such as Fabio Aru, world champion Alban Lakata and our very own Erik Kleinhans are proud to be associated with the brand and have enjoyed the protection the helmets offer, whilst going on to win some of the biggest races in the world.

Limar will launch officially to the public this weekend at the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge expo. The expo will be held at the Northgate Dome from Thursday through to Saturday. Bikalot will be at stands 80-82 and will have a number of launch specials available with some helmets on offer at over 25% off.


There is also a Facebook competition running on the Bikalot page where three of the 778 models are up for grabs, the competition page can be found here: https://www.facebook.../bikalotdotcom/
