Following two years of development Met has released the SINE Thesis, a helmet that the company claims “defies conventional design ideas and shows Met’s pure technological supremacy.”

The SINE Thesis uses a new helmet construction approach inspired by the skeletons of insects called Integrated Composite Exoskeleton, which provides the structural element of the new helmet. The Exoskeleton consists of three parts that are inseparably blended into each other, the skeleton interconnecting the braces, which meets safety targets and has allowed Met to offer high levels of ventilation, aero and low-weight.

Met claims that less than 20% of the head is in contact with the helmet, which should boost comfort and ventilation of air around the insides, and inside hypo-allergenic and thermo-stabilizing gel padding is used inside the helmet to reduce sweating.

Keen eyed readers will have spotted the new helmet on the heads of the Liquigas and Cofidis team riders in the 2008 Tour de France.

Weight is claimed 200g for size S/M, and a range of colours will be available.
