Kali Road Warrior Evergreen MTB Festival 2016

On June 11th, the Kali Road Warrior headed for Issaquah, Washington for the Evergreen MTB Festival, a two day demo and fundraiser event.

Held at Duthie Hill Park, over 3500 participants enjoyed bike demos, food, music and good times. With most of the major bike companies bringing their demo fleets, the Evergreen MTB Fest was possibly the largest on-dirt demo event besides Interbike and Outerbike. The Duthie Park trail system is designed perfectly for short laps on a variety of terrain, making it a great place to demo multiple bikes and compare them back to back on the same trails.

The festival atmosphere was also very inviting to all trail users in the park that weekend. Many people stumbled across the event and decided on the spot to sign up and demo bikes. Since all of the bike companies were requiring helmets to demo their bikes (duh), Kali's Rider Support program was in the right place at the right time. Dozens of riders each day were able to demo a Kali helmet and enjoy the awesome variety of singletack at Duthie Hill Park.

All monies raised at the festival go to help the nonprofit Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance build and maintain trails in an effort to make Washington one of the best places to ride.

What is the Kali Race Support Program and who is the Road Warrior?

In an effort to support events and racers of all levels, Kali Protectives has launched a new Race Support helmet exchange program in conjunction with the Kali Road Warrior.

We all ride and unfortunately, crashes do happen. Sometimes that happens at an event or race weekend, resulting in your helmet being damaged and unsafe to continue to use. But you have more racing to do. What now? When the Road Warrior attends a scheduled event, registered racers/attendees have the opportunity to submit their crash damaged helmet for inspection, and exchange it for a brand new Kali helmet at no charge. Kali is on hand to ensure riders can continue to compete without worrying about their helmet.

Currently, the program is limited to the West Coast, however, we are preparing to launch another Road Warrior and Race Support Program in Canada. Providing this initiative continues to be successful, we may establish Road Warriors in other territories.

If you would like to learn more about the Kali Road Warrior or possibly schedule him to attend your next event, shoot an email to kaliroadwarrior@kaliprotectives.com

 Huge thanks to the Kali team for this program. My daughter's helmet walked away from her little bellas camp at sea otter and Kali stoked her with a new helmet so she didn't miss a beat, along with countless other peeps who traded thier busted lids in. I liked them before but now we are all rocking thier lids for BMX, mtb and DH.

 Yeah Cedar! Guy knows his stuff! Made it very apparent that Kali isn't just singing a song about wanting us safe, they truly are pushing the evolution of the helmet. And Bushido is so awesome!

 Gotta say, that helmet swap deal is pretty cool. Saw it happening at the Sea Otter but was not prepared.

 This is awesome! But if you bust your head hard enough to dent your helmet not racing the rest of the weekend would be a good idea.
