Cross country riders have always been keen to ride the lightest bike possible. Studies have shown, however, that they should focus more on their helmets: a high head temperature causes the body to produce more sweat. This leads to a great loss of fluid, or in the worst case to dehydration - naturally having an extremely negative effect on performance.
Avoid this with METs Veleno - the perfect helmet in MET’s product range for XC riders.
Integral In-Mold Design Technologies This process protects and reinforces the structure of the helmet
Adjustable Kevlar straps: Extremely light and strong material for safety and comfort
Safe-T Smart: Adjustment system can be adjusted vertically and horizontally
Gel02 Front: Morpho-Gel pads for the front prevent sweat from getting into the eyes
Removable and ventilated visor: Directs fresh air to the ventilation openings
HCS: This value indicates in % how large the contact area of the head with the helmet is. It is obvious that everywhere where helmet and head touch each other only a little or no air can circulate. HCS allows the ventilation capability to be correctly assessed. The lower the HCS value, the better the ventilation.
Cooling factor: The cooling is calculated by the flow analyses. Through this high-tech computer analysis system, particle tracks are used to visualise and measure the motion of the particles. The speed and temperature of the air passing through the helmet is measured so that the helmet remains securely on the head. The higher the factor, the cooler the head.

Is already my third MET. Why? Because helmets of this manufacturer simply fit best on my head. Have tried other brands, but none of their helmets fit so perfectly.
Compared to the previous model, which still had the slide rails on the head rear side to adjust, the rotary wheel is a modern improvement. The ventilation is impeccable, which is clearly noticeable on hot days. And in the winter months I wear helmets under anyway.
Ist bereitsmein dritter MET. Weshalb? Weil Helme dieses Hersteller einach am besten auf meinen Kopf passen. Habe andere Fabrikate ausprobiert, aber keiner deren Helme passte so perfekt.
Gegenüber dem Vorgängermodel, das noch die Schiebeleisten an der Kopfrückseite zum einstellen hatte, ist das Drehrad eine zeitgemäße Verbesserung. Die Belüftung ist tadellos, was gerade an heißen Tagen deutlich spürbar ist. Und in den Wintermonaten trage ich ohnehin eine Helmmütze darunter.
