Kali Protectives



The Loka is a sleek road helmet ready for any kind of pavement or gravel adventure. Featuring Composite Fusion Plus technology to provide excellent protection.

If you are looking for a helmet to take on your next adventure ride, whether that be on the road, gravel or, what the kids are calling, mixed terrain, you will be hard pressed to find a better value than the Loka.

Composite Fusion Plus: This technology uses a layer of multi density cone shaped foam that intersect with a layer of softer foam that surrounds the head. In an impact, these cones act as a progressive damper to absorb different levels of impact. As they collapse, these cones also direct energy sideways and away from the brain.


  • Internal structural cage
  • Anti-microbial pads
  • Locking buckle and sliders
  • Polycarbonate shell and under wrap with EPS foam
  • Micro-fit closure system
  • 21 vents for maximum airflow



Kali Protectives offers its customers who have purchased a Kali bicycle helmet a limited Lifetime Crash Replacement (LCR) Warranty. If you have damaged your Kali bicycle helmet in a crash, you may file a claim to have your helmet replaced by Kali. You must send your helmet to Kali for inspection prior to receiving a replacement helmet. You cover the shipping, we'll cover your head!

How do I participate in the LCR Warranty Program?

You must go to www.kaliprotectives.com/register to register your information and helmet. This should be done soon after purchase of the helmet, and must be done prior to filing a LCR claim.

What does "Limited Lifetime" mean?

Kali offers customers a one-time crash replacement for the life of the purchased bicycle helmet. Damage must be the result of a riding related crash or impact to qualify for replacement. Offer is valid for bicycle helmets only.* You only need to pay shipping to and from Kali.

* LCR is not valid for Kali MX Helmets: Shiva, Shiva 2.0 Carbon/FRP, Prana Carbon/FRP.

What happens if I crash the LCR replacement helmet?

If you crash your replacement helmet, Kali will offer a 25% discount off MSRP towards the purchase of a replacement helmet. Contact warranty@kaliprotectives.com for further details.

How do I know if my bicycle helmet qualifies for replacement under LCR?

Your bicycle helmet must have been damaged in a crash to be eligible for replacement under LCR. As part of the claim process, you will need to submit photos and a description of your crash for review and approval by Kali Warranty. The Warranty representative will then provide instructions on how to proceed.

If your helmet has damage or broken parts due to a manufacturing defect, please refer to our Warranty Policy.

Why do I need to send in my crashed helmet?

You must submit your helmet for inspection to be approved as a crashed helmet before a replacement can be sent out. Kali also uses these crashed helmets for in-depth performance analysis.

If the helmet is inspected and does not qualify for replacement under LCR, the helmet will be shipped back to you at your expense.

Is the LCR Program available where I live?

The LCR Program is available to Kali customers around the world except in a few countries. Check availability with warranty@kaliprotectives.com The cost of shipping may vary depending on your location and the location of the nearest Kali LCR center.

How do I file a LCR claim?

  1. Confirm your helmet is registered at www.kaliprotectives.com/register. Registration should be completed soon after date of purchase.
  2. Send an email to warranty@kaliprotectives.com with the following info:
    • Name and email used to register

  • Customer must ship helmet back to a participating Kali LCR center at his/her expense.
