MET Rivale Women’s HelmetMET’s Rivale Women’s Helmet is the lightest in its class, weighing only 230g (med) and 250g (lge). MET engineers spent hours in wind tunnels with the support of Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka to research the best aerodynamic performances. The outcome of this research culminated in the manufacture of the Rivale Helmet. The specific shape of the Rivale enables a rider to gain a 1 second time advantage compared to other similar road helmets Lightweight and Aerodynamic Cycling HelmetRivale’s construction is based on an innovative design approach that focuses on the key performance parameters of the cycling helmet, making it compact, lightweight, ventilated and superiorly aerodynamic. The Venturi effect allows maximum air intake with the lowest drag possible. Through air channels inside the cycling helmet, hot air is pulled to the rear exhausting vents producing a great cooling effect MET’s top of the line fit system is Safe-T Advanced which provides the Rivale cycling helmet with the best weight/comfort ratio possible. The contact points have a larger cradle surface increasing comfort and are also designed to keep weight low and allow perspiration at the back of the head. The polyurethane soft padding improves the fitting, thus affording a snug head touch Other than lightweight, cycling helmets need to be breathable and comfortable, that’s why, along with Safe-T Advanced, the Rivale Helmet also features Airlite straps which are 15% lighter than standard helmet straps and Coolmax internal padding to create a comfortable fit that actively wicks moisture away from the surface of your skin Features:Extremely aerodynamic and low profile shapeThe Venturi effect allows maximum air intake that’s pulled through the helmet to the rear exhaust ventsIn-mould Intelligent Fusion outer shell construction provides optimal ratio of impact resistance and weightReflective stickers at rear of helmetCoolmax anti-allergenic internal paddingBreathable Airlite strapsSafe-T Advanced fit systemShock absorbing polystyrene inner shellAnti-pinch chin strap buckleAnti-slip cam dividerMET USB LED light device compatibilityCE, AS/NZ and US certificationsWeight: 230g (med), 250g (large)Buy MET Helmets from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
