MET Trenta 3K Carbon helmet

The MET Trenta 3K Carbon helmet was developed for professional use, and it managed to impress the award team with its low-profile shell construction, excellent ventilation, and a light weight of 229 g. MET achieves an extremely secure and comfortable fit thanks to an ergonomic design with a 360° retention system, a simple but well-functioning closure system, and the neatly engineered, low-profile pads. The ventilation in this aero-shaped helmet is first-class, and the low-pressure zone at the back of the head provides for passive cooling through the Venturi effect. Another highlight of the 3K Carbon helmet is the thin carbon layer which increases the penetration resistance of the EPS shell.

Weight: 229 g, rear light: 41 g | Price: € 300, rear light: € 29

It’s the definitive award that decisively tests products in the real world, assessing them in their entirety and reaching considered verdicts. This year once again saw select international journalists, professional test riders, and industry experts invest more than 6,000 hours of their time to partake in the DI.A process.
