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.
Venturi effect harnesses the power of the Venturi effect, another Italian engineering marvel, to push warm air through specially placed exhausts, ensuring the most efficient airflow through the helmet.

I ride both on and off road and wanted a more optimized helmet for on road rides. This helmet fits the bill, is comfortable and very aerodynamic. Also happens to match my road bike color scheme, which is black with red accents - so that doesn't hurt as well!
Sizing was accurate and overall this is a quality product. I am glad I spent a bit more to get this particular helmet as it is comfortable, high end build and has a good style. I recommend this helmet and would encourage a friend to buy it.
