An Italian-designed symphony of style and safety. The MET Homothetic Embedded Skeleton dissipates the compressive pressure of an impact throughout the entire shell, giving you a lot of protection for little weight. It also uses a Safe-T occipital retention system, which 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.
- Inner is made of polystyrene, bonded to a polycarbonate shell.
- Dial offers horizontal and vertical adjustments to fit the helmet firmly to your head.
- Polyester straps are uniquely woven for greater strength and faster drying.
- Air Lite straps and lateral dividers are embedded into the inner helmet. They have great tensile strength and reduce drag as you ride.
- Anti-allergenic GEL O2 pads cool your head and maintain shape and performance over time.
- Removable and washable pads quickly absorb and evaporate perspiration.
- Reflective rear stickers for improved visibility.
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).
