The development of the Rivale is the pinnacle of decades of experience in helmet construction and design. With the Rivale, MET’s engineers have redefined the parameters of aerodynamic efficiency via meticulous hours spent in the wind tunnel and incorporating athlete feedback from Team MTN Qhubeka.
The streamlined and compact shape provides unbeatable low drag performance for its class with a saving of 3 watts at 50km/h. Utilising the Venturi effect, the strategically positioned vents allow for the maximum intake of air by pulling the air through the helmet to the rear exhaust vents.
- A new standard of aero: Engineered to maximise aero efficiency, ventilation and safety
Weighing in at a very lightweight 230g, the Rivale really offers best in its class performance and value
The Rivale uses MET’s premium method of construction called HES
- Retention System: Safe T Advanced, MET’s top of the line retention system, provides the best weight and comfort ratio
25% lighter than the Safe T Smart, the Safe T Advanced is welded which helps to reduce the overall weight
The contact points have increased comfort with a larger cradle surface area which is also designed to aid ventilation at the back of the head
Optional USB LED light which fits snugly onto the dial of the retention system will be available
- Straps/Divider: Breathability and comfort are extremely important, that’s why the Rivale features Airlite straps which are 15% lighter than a standard helmet strap, they are also more aerodynamic than a standard strap
- Padding: Coolmax internal padding strategically placed to provide the best comfort and sweat absorption
