It's protective without being hot. It's light weight. Great xc helmet.
D lock is difficult to operate with gloves. I used to remove my helmet on climbs but don't bother now

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.

Our integrated fixed chin guard is designed to offer maximum protection. Strong, lightweight and highly ventilated, the Parachute is ideal for Enduro, allowing you to tackle climbs and descents whilst wearing the same helmet. 

Packed with features, we’ve really thought of everything. Our Safe-T Advanced system allows you to fine tune the fit for optimum comfort and safety. The Homopathic Embedded Skeleton adds strength. The Gel 02 padding feels cool on your forehead and remains odour-free. Our rib system keeps your goggle strap in place. And our multi-brand compatible camera mount is easy to install and remove.

  • In-Moulding Intelligent Fusion / Different densities of material, depending on the characteristics of each model.
  • Homothetic Embedded Skeleton / Spreads the pressure built up at the impact point, and thus dissipates the force of impact over the whole shell.
  • Monocoque / The world’s lightest full face helmet.

Size Adjuster
  • Safe-T Advanced / Lighter with broader contact area, the pressure is distributed in a homogenous way.

  • Designed For Performance / Its avant-garde design pushes the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm. The best ratio between maximal protection and minimum bulk.

  • Double-D buckle / Can be adjusted perfectly and won’t need to be retightened

Removable Visor

  • Multi Position / Allows super fine tuning of the visor position. Aluminium screws. A style statement too!

  • Front Pad Gel O2 / Hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, made from thermo-stabilising polyurethane morpho-gel. Keeps the forehead cooler.
  • Cheek Pads In Two Thicknesses / Can be swapped out for the other size to improve the helmet’s fit.
  • Quick-release for aid in helmet removal in the event of an emergency.

Other Features
  • Removable Onboard-Camera Support / Leaves the helmet clean and tidy when not filming. Compatible multi-brand.
  • Goggle Clip / Keeps the goggle strap in place on the helmet.

  • CE EN 1078
