Safety is the number one focus at MET and our research is unparalleled. Each year we make a significant financial investment dedicated solely to safety. We collaborate closely with the world’s best experts and the most renowned bio-mechanical engineers to ensure that our knowledge and understanding is at the forefront of helmet manufacturing. We are one of the few brands that have a full in-house testing facility. We are able to simulate any kind of impact from not only following the certification standards but also with rotational impact testing.
MIPS is the most accredited solution by independent studies and is the benchmark when it comes to managing rotational forces.
GOING FURTHER TO CERTIFY YOUR SAFETYThe Virginia Tech Helmet Lab provides an objective assessment of helmet safety. One- of-a-kind, it gives a rating based on both linear and rotational impact energies, going above and beyond the state of the art of helmet safety standards. This is a vital step to further certify the safety of your helmet and to help you make an informed purchase.
The Virginia Tech Helmet Lab specializes in body injury biomechanics, focusing primarily on advancing the understanding of concussion and how to decrease the risk of brain injury. This is a field of research in continuous development which is innovating the approach to engineer and design bicycle helmets.
