Red Dot Design Award (2008)

Helly Hansen's KIKUT 3 Red Dot Design Award Winner 2008

Product Design 2008 : Outdoor Performance Footwear

Helly Hansen’s Kikut 3 Mid is a technical winter trail shoe that allows the feet to breathe particularly well thanks to the new Helly Tech® XP Soft Shell, while fully protecting them from snow, ice and mud with a wind and waterproof membrane. The lacing system is hidden underneath the soft shell upper and is accessible through a waterproof zip. This generates a clean, reduced and functional design, which is lent a technoid appearance through the use of exterior taping, yet also provides water resistance. Its high functionality is embodied in a slip-proof Helly Grip™ sole, a midfoot stabiliser and particularly in the intelligent Outlast® technology, which regulates the heat balance inside the shoe and thus helps to keep the feet from overheating.
