Mission Liner Short
THE MISSION IS CLEAR
The Mission Liner Short: a lightweight, ventilated riding liner with hip and tailbone protection.
Are these shorts for you?
Large elastic waistband for comfort and durability, Articulated ride position construction, QuadCore LDL pad inserts on sides, thigh, and tail bone for mobility and protection, Breathable mesh and spandex construction, Padded chamois pad reduces pressure points, prevents chafing, and is anti-microbial to reduce odor and bacteria, Wide spandex cuffs for fit and integration with Kali Mission 2.0 knee pads.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Kali Protectives came from a breakthrough in safety technology - Composite Fusion, a process that bonds the helmet shell and foam enabling us to use a thinner shell, creating a lighter stronger helmet. Lighter and stronger means a safe helmet with less mass attached to your head.
THE KALI STORY
Kali is focused on making the safest helmets on the market. Brad Waldron, founder, believes all helmets are too hard and the current testing is antiquated, so he has taken it upon himself to push the boundary of helmet technology. His goal is to build the safest helmets on the market at all price points. He knows his best helmets are yet to come, so he continues to cut open, crush and test helmets constantly. Whatever your discipline, Kali has you covered.
BECOME PART OF THE KALI FAMILY
We work with some of the greatest riders in all the world. And we are pretty particular about who those riders are. Because if they are going to ride for us, they have got to be family. They have to understand we are more interested in the story after the ride, then the ride itself. We are more interested in the positive impact these riders have sitting on their tailgates after the ride, then where they stood on the podium. They have to understand we are trying to keep riders safe so they can do it again tomorrow and we want to have a positive impact on the world so future generations can enjoy their ride, just like we did. We are always stoked and honored when people say #kaliforlife. We would like to think that is not only because of industry leading technology, but because we care. And we don’t say this lightly, but we love our Kali Krew. Come join the family.
COMPREHENSIVE PROTECTION STRATEGY
When we design our helmets, we take into consideration all types of crash scenarios — from twisting and turning, to rotational and sideways, and especially the types of accidents that are indescribable. We account for impacts of all shapes and sizes. As a matter of fact, this is what keeps Kali Protectives founder, Brad Waldron, awake at night. We realize there are a lot of “trends” and “buzzwords” saturating the bicycle industry and helmets are not immune to this manufacturing approach, but Kali has no interest in integrating technology into our helmets simply to create a marketing opportunity, follow a trend, or sticker our boxes with fancy terminology. Our strategy is to constantly be rethinking, reworking, and testing to make sure our helmets keep your brain as safe as possible as well as stay up with the latest style trends. The goal is to create the safest helmets on the market, so you have peace of mind while out on your favorite roads, trails, and jumps. We strive to keep pushing the envelope with the best designs and materials and to implement useful protection into all of our helmets regardless of their intended use or price-point.
QUADCORE LOW DENSITY LAYER
Simply put, LDL started out with the idea of putting a low density liner inside our helmets to suck up the energy from a low-g hit to the head. Your helmet is there to take the beating for you when you hit your head, hard. LDL is there to soften the bumps we get that are not near the forces that compress or damage the foam in your helmet. It turns out that Low-g hits, especially when received repeatedly, turn into serious concussion damage to your brain. The data shows the majority of impacts from accidents are happening at much lower-g forces than the standards are testing for. And thus we are huge advocates for getting softer materials into our helmets and closer to your head. Our LDL reduces rotational impact forces up to 25%, and reduces low-g linear forces up to 30%. We continue to test and experiment with materials and the design of LDL materials in our helmets and we won’t stop. Afterall, we are an engineering driven company whose focus is developing the next generation of industry leading safety technologies.
