Strength:

Nice design and overall quality. Almost perfect fit.

Weakness:

A bit hot compared to my Giro especially being in a tropical country but fits so much better it's all forgiven.

There's no perfect helmet thus no 5 star rating. Valuewise since all helmets are overpriced anyway I gave it a 4. But this MET fits so well on the head it really feels it covers the whole head without any uncomfortable spot. Awesome!

Strength:

Build quality, ventilation, looks. Also fits really nice.

Weakness:

None so far

I bought this helmet to replace my old and worn out MET Parabellum. Good construction and excelent fit together with verry good ventilation made me take this one instead of Bell's Sweep XC. Besides that it looks very good and is fairly light (but I'm not a weight weenie).
Would recomend to XC racers and All Mountain riders

Strength:

Quality of manufacture, looks, weight, ventilation and most importantly fit.

Weakness:

None so far.

This is without doubt the best fitting helmet I have ever used, never tried MET before but I'm fully converted. Also looked at the Kaos but not as nice as this one in my opinion plus Veleno is cheaper which is a bonus. Would fully recommend to anyone who has fit issues or fancies a change from Giro, Bell etc.

Strength:

Light, good venterlation, provides good coverage and looks mean.

Weakness:

The straps take a little while to become soft and comfotable

Where I live and ride is exytremly hot, getting up into the mide 50 degress celcius in summer, so a good venterlating helmet is a must. This helmat has no worries with that. With it being so light and once worn for a little while it becomes very comfortable and you forget that it is on some times.
