Met Estro, 283g review

MET, CA helmets test 2013
Cycling Weekly Verdict

In fact, it seems that a sweaty head is something that Met takes for granted - the Estro is the only helmet here to feature a silicone forehead gripper/pad which, it has to be said, is a lot more comfy than it looks.

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Cradle not easy to adjust

From the racy shape to the detailing on the strap, our first impressions were of a helmet way more expensive.

But you get what you pay for, and the Estro is let down by a cradle that isn't easy to adjust vertically, and has a slightly cheap feel to the dial adjuster.

Padding is minimal though not uncomfortable and it dries far more quickly than the others.
