Urban commuters get to enjoy the protection of MET’s sport helmets ̶ without looking like you should be wearing full spandex. Small touches like bug-proof netting in the vents make sure the only thing in your hair is the wind.
- MIPS-C2® technology (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) reduces rotational forces in an oblique impact. An inner shell sandwiched under the foam reduces the rotational torque on your skull.
- Integrated LED taillight and rear-facing reflector.
- Lightweight in-mold construction fuses EPS to a polycarbonate shell to protect you from impacts.
- Removeable visor.
- Safe-T fit system adjusts fit quickly and precisely.
- 14 vents with netting let air flow through.
- Fidlock® magnetic buckle with a padded chin strap.
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.

|Fit system||Adjustable dial|
|Inner material||EPS (expanded polystyrene)|
The internal circumference determines the size head that the helmet will fit.
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).
