EPS + 3 polycarbonate shell. The EPS is totally covered by the polycarbonate shell for increased durability over the life of the helmet, directly linked to safer performance.
EXTENDED HEAD COVERAGE
The back of the head and the temples are especially in need of defense from impacts, so we’ve increased the protection around these key areas – without sacrificing overall lightness.
FLEXIBLE INJECTION VISOR
A visor that is too stiff will act like a spring and push back the head during a crash. One that’s too soft will shake around during a ride. We’ve worked with our pro riders to find the perfect balance and achieve the optimal amount of flexibility.
The first helmet to feature MET’s new SAFE-T Orbital retention system.
It allows the wearer to dial in a fine-tuned fit, regardless of head size. It works on three different adjustments:
- 360 adjustment, all-round belt
- vertical adjustments, three positions
- occipital adjustments, two positions
The system is also equipped with two thermoplastic rubber pads to increase comfort where it comes into contact with the head.
It’s ponytail compatible and can also be used with MET’s USB LED Light.
ADJUSTABLE CAM DIVIDERS
MET’s cam divider provides two levels of extra stability and security, with a built-in crimping bar on the divider that grips the helmet strap, preventing slippage.
