230 GRAMS OF LIGHTNESS
The MET Rivale keeps things as compact as possible, without cutting down drastically on the number of vents.
At 230g the MET Rivale gives nothing away in the power-to-weight stakes, despite being primarily an aero helmet.
After hours spend in the wind tunnel and incorporating athlete feedback from Team MTN Qhubeka, MET’s engineers managed to redefine the parameters of aerodynamic efficiency.
Lightweight and Aerodynamic MET Rivale Helmet
The aerodynamic shape of MET's Rivale Helmet delivers an exceptional low drag performance, saving 3 watts of effort at 50km/h. The vents have been strategically positioned to utilise the Venturi effect, thus allowing maximum air intake by pulling the air through the helmet to the rear exhaust vents. The superb performance of MET's Rivale Helmet tips the scales at a lightweight 230 grams.
MET Rivale Helmet
Engineered to maximise aero efficiency
HES premium construction
Safe T Advanced, MET’s top of the line retention system, provides the best weight and comfort ratio.
25% lighter than the Safe T Smart, the Safe T Advanced is welded which helps to reduce the overall weight.
The contact points have increased comfort with a larger cradle surface area which is also designed to aid ventilation at the back of the head.
Optional USB LED light which fits snugly onto the dial of the retention system will be available.
Breathability and comfort are extremely important, that’s why the Rivale features Airlite straps which are 15% lighter than a standard helmet strap, they are also more aerodynamic than a standard strap.
