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.
Racy looks will find appeal
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.
