MET takes the comfort and safety of cyclists very seriously, therefore, they try to incorporates the most modern technologies applied to the world of helmets in conjunction with aesthetically pleasing and eye catching designs. The outer and inner casing of the helmet are manufactured in mould then aerodynamically tested in a wind tunnel so as to improve the streamlining. MET have also included a rear LED light on some of its models so as to improve the visibility of the cyclist.
The models Manta and Rivale are compatible with the light MET USB LED light device, which has 6 modes of operation between fixed light, flashes, night mode, … It is visible from up to 500m, has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasting 4 hours, light sensor and is water-resistant.
The aerodynamic design of the MET Manta provides unmatched performance when tested in an aerodynamic tunnel, saving 10 watts to 50 km/h compared to other similar helmets. With a weight of 200gr, it is the lightest helmet on the market in its category. The advanced Safe-T system provides the best relationship between weight and comfort. The contact points have a larger cradle surface, which increases comfort and allows perspiration behind the head. The padded inner polyurethane helps you feel comfortable.
The MET Rivale helmet represents a new standard in aerodynamic helmets. It saves the rider up to 3 watts at 50 km/h (saves 1 second). It stands out for breathability and comfort. It incorporates airlite straps which are 15% lighter than a standard hull strap. Through the air channels inside the hull the hot air comes out through the rear openings and produces a great cooling effect.
