MET Rivale Hes Helmet
Is it aero or is it light? How about both.
Due to its streamlined aerodynamic shape and efficient breathability, the MET Rivale is ideal for a plethora road cycling disciplines from long distance road racing to the short circuit crits, and even quick time trials. After hours and hours of watching Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka pro riders pedal away in the wind tunnel, MET was able to strategically sculpt the Rivale's slim shape to have an almost unfair advantage over the wind. MET claims the Rivale you see before you can save up to 3 watts at 50km/h. However, none of these numbers matter if the helmet isn't safe and comfortable, which is why they've featured the Venturi effect which allows maximum air intake with the lowest drag possible. Through air channels inside the helmet, hot air is pulled to the rear exhausting vents to produce a natural, yet exceptional cooling effect.
Through MET's Safe-T Advanced Fit System, the Rivale uses a micro adjust dial which allows precise 2mm horizontal adjustments per click. There is also a 4 step vertical adjustment that allows you to perfectly tune the helmet to the shape and size of your dome. In addition to being light and strong, the MET Stradivarius helmet raises the comfort bar with Air Lite straps and Coolmax anti-allergenic interior pads. A few little extra touches not to miss are the reflective logo and stickers.
- Outer shell construction: In-Mould
- Inner shell: Shock absorbing polystyrene
- Chin strap buckle: Anti-pinch buckle

I like that your forehead isn't just up against the front of the helmet, but instead an internal retaining ring, that also has the side benefit of keeping the sweat out of my eyes.
