The Met Rivale Helmet combines the best of aero with the best of ventilated helmets to produce a proven winner
The Met Rivale offers aero performance and great cooling potential thanks to the hours spent in the windtunnel and feedback from the riders of Team MTN-Qhubeka. It's an aero helmet at an extremely competitive price, so you can ride what the professionals ride and get the same benefits they do. Lightweight, aerodynamic and comfortable, the Met Rivale will leave your rivals wondering why they don't have one.
Streamlined and compact shape - Met's engineers have redefined the parameters of aerodynamic efficiency through many hours spent in the wind tunnel and working with feedback from Team MTN Qhubeka. The aerodynamic and low profile shape provides a saving of 3 watts at 50km/h which translates into 1 second time advantage compared to other aero road helmets.
The Venturi effect allows for maximum air intake, while having the lowest drag possible. Through air channels inside the helmet hot air is pulled to the rear exhaust vents providing a greater cooling effect.
Integral inmoulding and Inmolding EPS intelligent fusion construction - Rivale’s revolutionary construction is based on an innovative design approach that focuses on the key performance parameters of the helmet making it compact, lightweight, ventilated and superiorly aerodynamic.

The contact points allow for increased comfort, with a larger cradle surface area that is also designed to aid ventilation at the back of the head. The micro adjust dial offers very precise movements with 2mm per click for horizontal adjustment.

Airlite straps - 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.
