MET Buddy Helmet

A well-proportioned shape which is reassuringly safe. With their sleek curved lines, the Buddy and Super Buddy kids’ helmet designs have become timeless classics.

Striking the perfect balance between solid volume and air intake vents has led to this compact and well-ventilated shell at a highly competitive price. Integrated visor, anti-insect net, hypoallergenic internal foam pads, anti-pinch buckle... the Buddy and the Super Buddy have been thought out right down to the tiniest detail so that learning to ride a bike is really just child’s play, but with added safety! Adjustable size, from 46 cm head size for the Buddy and up to 57 cm for the Super Buddy.


  • Twin-shell construction: Unlike In-mould construction used for the rest of our range, Twin-shell construction means that the exterior coloured shell is applied to the polystyrene foam after the latter has been moulded. This construction technique is more cost-effective but may mean a higher shell volume for the same shock absorption. For Buddy and Super Buddy this increase is almost unnoticeable.
  • Anti-insect net: The anti-insect net prevents insects from entering the helmet through the front air intakes and thus reduces the risk of stings.
  • Reflective rear stickers: Being visible, whatever the age of the cyclist, including children sitting in a child seat behind their parent’s bike, is a safety essential. At night or in tunnels, the reflective sticker placed at the rear of the helmet makes the bike visible to drivers approaching from behind.
  • Anti-pinch buckle: Making it easy for young kids to learn to ride a bike and then use it regularly is one of our priorities. By analysing their children’s behaviour, our engineers and designers use their everyday experience as cyclists and parents for inspiration to constantly improve the little details that make such a big difference. The buckle which closes the strap system under the chin has been designed to avoid any pinching, even when used clumsily.
  • Safe-T Twist: Exclusive technology developed by engineers in our Research and Development laboratory. Occipital retention system. Its role is to ensure that the helmet is held firmly on the head. There is a dial at the back of the helmet for easy one-hand size adjustment. The internal mechanism was designed for precision and reliability.
  • Strap/Divider: The straps and chin buckle are easy to adjust and the new cam divider holds the straps securely in place.
  • Padding: Anti-allergenic interior pads. The interior pads are vitally important for helmet comfort. We only use anti-allergenic fabric varying the thickness according to the position in the helmet. Hand washable.
