MET Veleno Helmet

Perfect lines for top all-terrain performance. From its minimalist, tapered visor at the front to the slim points at the back, the Veleno's sleek proportions are perfectly balanced. The markings positioned inside the front air intakes, and not on the shell, accentuate even further the pure lines of its aggressive profile which distinguishes the Veleno from other XC helmets.

MET Veleno Helmet Features:

  • In-Mould Intelligent Fusion construction - Exclusive technology developed by engineers in our Research and Development laboratory. In-mould construction involves fusing together in the same matrix the two parts of the helmet shell (the interior which is generally black or grey polystyrene and the coloured polycarbonate exterior) during the moulding process. This construction technique provides better shock-absorption results than the Twin-Shell at equivalent volume and material density. Thanks to the In-mould Intelligent Fusion process, MET goes even further by using different densities of material depending on the characteristics of each model to improve the weight/volume ratio while optimising the shock absorption capacity.
  • Removable visor - The visor’s role is to protect the face and especially the eyes from branches, sun or, in bad weather, against mud flicked up by bikes in front.
  • CoolmaxTM anti-allergenic interior pads - The high-tech material assures rapid evaporation of absorbed perspiration for greater comfort. Hand washable.
  • Gel 02 anti-allergenic front pad - Exclusive technology developed by engineers in our Research and Development laboratory. Instead of absorbing perspiration it sends it towards the sides of the face. With superior hygiene, a much longer lifespan, a natural capacity to adapt to body shape, its thickness remaining stable over time... the GEL O2 front pad offers so many advantages that it will permanently change your idea of helmet comfort. Originating from the medical industry, it is hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, made from thermo-stabilising polyurethane morpho-gel, and it helps keeps the head really cool, a key factor not only for comfort but also for the cyclist’s performance.
  • Safe-T Smart - 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. A dial at the back of the helmet for easy one-hand size adjustment. The internal mechanism was designed for precision and reliability. The Safe-T Smart also includes a vertical adjustment to position precisely where the helmet touches the head. Thanks to the broader and lighter contact area, the pressure on the head is distributed in a homogenous way for added comfort.
  • Reflective rear stickers - Being visible is essential to the safety of a cyclist. At night or in tunnels, the reflective sticker placed at the back of the helmet makes the bike visible to drivers approaching from behind.
  • KevlarTM straps - Exclusive technology developed by engineers in our Research and Development laboratory. Although improving performance is often at a cost to comfort and vice-versa, this is not the case with our exclusive KevlarTM straps. Ventilated, with breathability, ever lighter and ultra-resistant they have numerous advantages over traditional straps.
  • Strong-fit lateral dividers - Exclusive technology developed by engineers in our Research and Development laboratory. For a helmet to be fully protective it must be adjusted to fit securely. It must also remain secure whilst being used. MET helmets are all fitted with lockable lateral dividers (where the front and back straps meet). Positioning them correctly, in other words just under the ears, then blocking them in the chosen position is child’s play.

MET Veleno Helmet Technology:

MET’s Air Scale:

  • A real performance indictor of the helmet’s level of ventilation. When defining ventilation efficiency, a fundamental aspect which directly influences a cyclist’s performance, most helmet manufacturers simply indicate the number of air intakes for such and such model, implying that the helmet with the greatest number of air intakes is therefore the best ventilated. However, in reality, this indication alone does not provide any real information about the true capacity of the helmet to keep the head cool.
  • MET, on the other hand, has developed its own protocol to measure the helmet’s performance in terms of ventilation called Air Scale, which measures two fundamental parameters. The Head Contact Surface (HCS) and the Cooling Factor (CF).

Cooling Factor (CF):

  • The cooling factor is calculated using Fluid Flow Analysis. Through this very high-tech computerized analysis system particle traces are used to visualize and measure the motion of mass-less particles that are placed in a flow field. In our case we measure the velocity and temperature of the air as it goes through the helmet in order to rate each helmet accordingly to its capacity of keeping the head cool. The higher the Cooling Factor, the cooler the head.

Head Contact Surface (HCS):

  • The Head Contact Surface indicates in percentage how much of the head is in contact with the helmet. It is easy to understand that where the head is in contact with the helmet there is no room for the air to circulate. The HCS provides a key information to rate a helmet ventilation. The lower the HCS, the better the ventilation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good secure fit Feels like it covers a fair bit of your noggin. Actually sits down around your head pretty well which feels nice and safe. Looks good on my big head and not like some little skull cap so I think it's we'll proportioned. Has a nice light feel. Good for xc trail and road. I'm at the full extent of the chin strap adjustment though. Wouldn't want to be any shorter. 10 February 2014
