When you spend a fair amount of your life on your bike, it is even more important to know you are well protected. In the event of an accident, the HES construction process, which involves fusing two homothetic shells allows the pressure which builds up at the point of impact to be spread across the helmet dissipating the shock more effectively.


  • In-Mould Intelligent Fusion construction. Exclusive technology developed by engineers in our Research and Development laboratory. Inmould construction involves fusing together in the same matrix the two parts of the helmet shell (the interior which is generally black or grey polystyrene and the coloured polycarbonate exterior) during the moulding process. This construction technique provides better shock absorption results than the Twin-Shell at equivalent volume and material density. Thanks to the In-mould Intelligent Fusion process, MET goes even further by using different densities of material depending on the characteristics of each model to improve the weight/volume ratio while optimising the shock absorption capacity.
  • Full wrap The polycarbonate shell wraps the bottom of the helmet towards the inside of the shell.
  • HES Construction - Homothetic Embedded Skeleton. In the event of an impact the pressure on the helmet shell is uneven, however, in reality most of the pressure is concentrated within a limited area. HES construction, which involves embedding a homothetic skeleton at the back of the helmet, spreads the pressure built up by compression at the impact point, and thus dissipates the force of impact over the whole shell. This exceptional design and a manufacturing technique, that today only MET has mastered, makes the HES concept a new reference in cycle helmet construction.

Retention System:
Safe-T Advanced - Our top of the range 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 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. The micro adjust dial offers very precise movements with 2mm per click for horizontal adjustment. The vertical adjustment offers 4 steps for the perfect fit. As standard on all of our helmets, the retention features a full 360 degrees retention ring which fits around the head bringing unparalleled comfort with a very secure fit.

Breathability and comfort are extremely important, the Airlite straps and dividers are 15% lighter than a standard helmet strap, they are also more aerodynamic than a standard strap/divider combination.

Full Gel 02 padding is hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial and made from biomedical gel which helps to keep the head cooler, is more durable and won’t smell of sweat.

Extra Information:

  • Extras available to order:  Safe-T Advanced USB LED light which fits snugly onto the dial of the retention system. Featuring 6 LEDs in flashing or constant modes. Night safe mode and water resistant. Tool free fitting.
