Protect your head! 6 Best MET Helmets for Road and Time Trials – Bicycles
MET has over 30 years of experience in the manufacture of cycling helmets, and these helmets are built with a wealth of knowledge built over the years. The entire line of MET helmets is designed in Italy, and MET employees pride themselves on being closer to their products than other companies.
The result of this approach and attention to detail is the innovative technology that the brand applies to the manufacture of helmets. From MIPS technology for extra brain protection (which we’ll take a closer look at below), to other unique MET technologies designed for greater comfort – not many companies have such a range of products for all riding styles.
For example, the MET Safe-T buckle system has been designed to give the helmet the best fit and secure fit. And Duo LED technology with detachable LED lights allows you to be more visible on the road – these lights have a normal and flashing mode. NACA ventilation with a unique air channel system and efficient heat dissipation openings keeps your head as cool as possible. In addition, there are small details, such as an antibacterial treated liner or anti-slip adjustment straps, which make MET helmets even more comfortable and safer.
Not only are all these technologies invented in the lab and listed on paper for redemption – MET helmets are used by many demanding riders, such as World Enduro series winners or WorldTour road race winners, including Dimension Data and Team UAE road teams .
So what is the best helmet for road biking? Below are some of the best options.
How to choose the right helmet
- First of all, decide how you want to ride. For more difficult conditions, the requirements for equipment will be higher.
- How much cooling do you need? For those who ride for a long time in the summer, it is better to choose a helmet with really good ventilation.
- How often do you drive at night? If often, it may make sense to look at a helmet with integrated lights – for example, with Duo LED technology.
- If you’re planning on racing, it’s worth maximizing aerodynamics by choosing the right helmet.
- What is your budget? In fact, there are great helmets at every price point and you can be sure that all MET helmets meet CE and BSI safety standards. However, if you can spend more money, this will mean that you can choose a more serious model, for example, a helmet with MIPS technology.
- It is very important how the helmet sits on your head, and how comfortable you are in it – you should not ride in a helmet that hangs on you, or, conversely, that puts a lot of pressure on you. Make sure that the helmet can be fastened so that it fits securely on the head, but does not cause discomfort.
- Do not wear your helmet backwards! It may sound silly, but some do flip the helmet over when putting it on.
- The helmet should protect both the front and the back of the head, so wear it evenly, without leaning forward or backward.
- Make sure the helmet straps go around your ears and snap in securely at the bottom without pinching your chin.
What is MIPS?
MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact System) technology is the best way to protect the brain from strong rotations today – helmets with MIPS technology have been proven to be about 10% safer than non-MIPS helmets. MIPS helmets use a special interior that moves independently of the exterior in the event of a fall, so the brain is less affected by rotational motion, which neuroscientists believe is an important factor in concussions and other brain injuries.
MET uses MIPS technology even on most road helmets. In addition, MET is one of the few brands that has its own testing ground that allows you to simulate any type of impact – not only direct, as prescribed by the safety standards, but also lateral and associated with rotation of the head. This means that MET engineers don’t just use MIPS because they think the technology works – they know it does work.
Do not think that low price necessarily means low quality: the Idolo is not just a “budget” helmet. It’s more of a replica of one of the best MET road helmets that has been made available to many riders. This helmet’s ergonomic design, compact design, Safe-T E-mid buckle system combines comfort and safety, plus proven vents that can really keep you cool. For daily use, the inside of the helmet is made of hypoallergenic material and is suitable for hand washing, the side straps do not slip, and there are integrated Duo LEDs in the back of this model. In short, the Idolo model has everything you need, and even more, for an adequate price.
When you need maximum performance not at the maximum price, the MET Strale helmet is a great choice. It’s a very comfortable and ventilated helmet that uses MET’s NACA technology and has a special duct system to allow air to pass through the helmet while riding. Further, thanks to the so-called Venturi effect, hot air escapes through two large holes at the back of the helmet. Two additional ventilation holes on each side, in turn, maximize the already excellent ventilation. The Strale is equipped with a Safe-T Duo closure system with three vertical adjustments, an integrated Duo LED light and a reflective sticker on the back. As with the Idolo, the helmet’s liner is hypoallergenic and can be washed by hand. Truly a great choice if you are looking for a well ventilated road helmet.
This helmet is reminiscent of the award-winning Trenta – it’s very light and, again, there’s an air duct system that, coupled with the air outlets at the back of the helmet, provides maximum ventilation. However, the innovations of this model, of course, do not end there. As the name suggests, the Vinci MIPS helmet uses the MIPS-C2 Brain Supplementary Protection System to further protect you from violent head rotation in the event of a fall. The reflective sticker and compatibility with Duo LED lights mean better visibility at night. Well, the Safe-T Duo Fit fixation system will always securely hold the helmet on your head.
The Rivale may already be legendary among the MET models, but its new redesigned version (which comes with and without MIPS) features an attention to detail almost unheard of in this price range. For example, there’s the new Safe-T Upsilon buckle system that ensures a snug and stable helmet fit, a special padded headband to ensure there are no pressure points, and an easy-to-use vertical adjustment system to achieve a truly comfortable fit. , individual fit helmet. In addition, the new version of the Rivale is more aerodynamic than the previous version, the NACA ventilation system maximizes air circulation inside the helmet, and the edges of the vents in the front can be used as hooks for sunglasses. This helmet is also compatible with Duo LED headlights, giving you a classic helmet with more than modern functionality.
In the case of the new Manta MIPS helmet, the engineers had four goals – safety, fit, aerodynamics and style – and the engineers were able to solve all four. In terms of safety, this helmet has the MIPS Brain Protection System, which provides 10% better protection than conventional helmet designs. In terms of fit, on the Manta we see the Safe-T Orbital adjustment system with vertical adjustment and padded headband for an even tighter fit and softer helmet feel. In terms of comfort, this helmet has fifteen vents that include the innovative NACA system to keep your head cool on long rides. In terms of appearance, the helmet has a really cool modern design with details like a magnetic Fidlock closure, dedicated sunglasses ports and a reflective sticker on the back.
Trenta helmets, among other things, could be seen at this year’s Tour de France – riders from Dimension Data and Team UAE, for example. So the first thing to know about this helmet is that it suits even the most demanding riders for the most serious race in the world. And the reason for such functionality of the helmet is in its design. For example, the tubular back and special ventilation channels mean that this model provides 7% less air resistance when riding than classic road helmets. But while many aero helmets are very tight, the Trenta provides decent head cooling as only 30% of the inside of the helmet is in contact with the head. In addition, there is a ventilation system called NACA and special air outlets for better air circulation inside the helmet. This helmet features MET’s most adjustable buckle system called Safe-T Orbital, which provides both occipital and vertical adjustments, and micro-adjustments for fine final adjustment. And finally, on the weight front, the carbon shell is integrated into the liner, allowing for a 20% reduction in foam without sacrificing safety.
