2017 MET Parachute Full Face MTB Helmet - Black / Red ( S 51-56 cm )
YES! The iconic MET Parachute is back! Weighing merely 700g (size medium), the Parachute is the lightest full face in the world certified to American ASTM F1952-2032 standards, the only authority which certifies full face bicycle helmets.
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. Riders buy a full face helmet to have more protection to their face, so it’s important to know if the chin guard has been stringently tested and passes the ASTM standard. 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. The Parachute is the ideal helmet for Enduro racing: weighing in at just 700 g (Size M), it is extremely light and well ventilated making it comfortable to wear on climbs and safe on descents.
The Parachute's 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. The visor’s role is to protect the face especially the eyes from branches and the sun, or against mud. 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. MOPOV (My Own Point Of View) is a multi-brand compatible camera mount system that our engineers developed to securely mount an action camera onto the helmet without damaging the helmet's shell. Safe-T Advanced, MET’s top of the line fit system, provides the best weight and comfort ratio. The contact points have a larger cradle surface increasing comfort and are also designed to keep weight low and allow perspiration at the back of the head.
