The new standard of aero is here.The MET Rivale cycling helmet was developed after-hours in the wind tunnel with Team Dimension Data. The team researched the ultimate design for the best aerodynamic performance.
The result is a helmet with a shape that enables a rider to save up to 3 watts at 50km/h: this translates to a 1-second time advantage, compared to other similar road helmets.
Similar to most MET helmets, the Venturi effect is utilised to allow the maximum air intake with the lowest drag possible. Hot air is pulled to the rear exhausting vents of the helmet, producing a great cooling effect.
When developing the Rivale helmet, MET considered five performance parameters:
METs top-of-the-line fit system, known as Safe-T Advanced, ensures contact points have a larger cradle surface to increase comfort, and to keep weight low and allow perspiration at the back of the head.
For increased cycling safety, the Safe-T Advanced USB LED light fits snugly on to the dial of the fit system, and features 6 LEDs in flashing or constant modes.
The MET Rivale helmet also features Airlite straps that are 15% lighter than a standard helmet strap.
LITE STRAPS Breathability and comfort are extremely important, thats why the Rivale features Airlite straps which are 15% lighter than a standard helmet strap.
