A race level helmet with MET's own Ultimalite fibers that strengthen the shell without compromising shock absorption. The Safe-T occipital retention systems encircles your whole head, so it doesn't push only at the back and front. In the event of a crash, it allows the helmet to rotate very slightly to absorb energy and reduce the risk of injury. Super-fine increments on the adjustment wheel bring a new level of bespoke to the fit.
- Polystyrene inner molded to polycarbonate shell.
- Designed to limit head to helmet contact and ultimately increase air circulation.
- Air Lite Lateral dividers stay in place and reduce drag.
- Air Lite straps use woven polyester fibres to aid sweat evaporation and provide great tensile strength.
- Safe-T Advanced retention system dial offers horizontal and vertical adjustments to tune the fit to your head.
- Coolmax anti-allergenic interior pads manage moisture and can be washed by hand.
- Front gel pad ensures a dry and comfortable ride.
Microshell helmets are made of a thin polymer sheet over a foam liner; Hardshell helmets have a hard polymer outer shell and a foam liner; when the liner is being bonded to the outer shell during the manufacturing process, it is Molded in the shell.

Most helmets are tested and certified for a specific sport. Some helmets are approved for multi-sports, but only after passing the safety tests for both sports (i.e., snowsports and cycling).
Cetification is established by a variety of governing bodies who set impact standards. Most helmets are certified or approved for a specific sport, except in the case of multi-sport helmets (i.e., a snowsports helmet might also be approved for cycling if it meets the cycling safety standards).
