Review – KLIM Krios dual sport adventure helmet

Barely got my breath back from the return from Nepal and we were off to Ireland for the “Norton” meet at the Beara peninsula in the deep South West. I opted for the T3 in the hope of hassle free riding, that proved half right! Alex and I left on Wednesday,...
