The Met Parachute is the trailblazer for a new category of helmets purpose-built for Enduro mountain biking. It combines the protection of a full face helmet with low weight, high ventilation and comfort. Weighing in at just 700g (Size M), it is extremely light and well ventilated making it comfortable to wear on climbs and safe on descents.
Riders buy a full face helmet to have more protection to their face, so itâs important to know if the chin guard has been stringently tested and passes the ASTM standard. Its also great that the chin guard does not restrict your breathing: non-removable chin guard is integrated into the helmet. Thanks to its construction it is the only chin guard of its kind that exceeds ASTM testing. This technology and highly innovative design create a solid, compact and highly-ventilated chin guard.
Adjustable visor with intergrated air vents The visorâs role is to protect the face especially the eyes from branches and the sun, or against mud.
You can fine tune your field of vision by adjusting the anodized aluminum side screws. The visor can easily be adjusted to provide plenty of space to stow your goggles. Talking about goggles the Parachute has a clip system on the back of the helmet that keeps your goggle strap in place all the time no matter how tough and rugged the terrain.
The fact that the Parachute is ASTM certified gives the confidence to the rider that MET has designed and certified the Parachute to provide the best level of safety in its class.
