Kali Protectives at Interbike

Kali Protectives is a company that is local to us here in the SF-SJ Bay Area. They feature gear for both motorcycle riders (motocross, freestyle, street bike) and bicycle riders and their most popular products are in the DH/Freeride arena. We have written about their Aatma full face helmet in a featured review.

But like other DH/FR heavy manufacturers that we’ve featured (think Poc or Dainese), Kali also has XC/AM helmets as well.

First up is the Amara CAM XC. The Amara features an ultra lightweight Polycarbonate shell and an EPS liner bonded together with patented COMPOSITE FUSION™ technology. This special version features revolutionary integrated camera mount for a perfect filming position.
