The helmet of choice for arguably the fastest sprinter on the road, the MET Manta Cavendish Edition HES Road Helmet offers superb watts-saving aerodynamics and a protective HES construction. Strategically placed NACA vents keep your head nice and cool and the 200-gram weight makes this one of the lightest helmets on the market.

MET Manta Cavendish Edition HES Road Helmet

Mark Cavendish knows a thing or two about speed and this is clearly reflected in his MET Manta Cavendish Edition HES Road Helmet. This helmet has an extremely aerodynamic profile that can save up to 10 watts at 50km/h. For the Manx Missile this translates to five seconds of effort - the difference between crossing the finish line first and not even making the podium.

Despite this helmet's ultra aero profile, airflow has not been sacrificed. The strategically placed NACA crown vents and Airflow Converge vents ensure your head is kept cool without increasing drag.

In terms of safety, the Manta HES has you covered. The HES construction acts to spread the force of any impacts out across the full shell of the helmet. This dispersion of force helps to alleviate the dangerous potential of heavy, concussive blows, thus reducing the threat of potentially serious or life-threatening injuries.

This great level of protection does not come with a significant weight penalty, thanks to the In-Mould Intelligent Fusion shell design. At just 200 grams in the medium size, this is one of the lightest aero offerings on the market.

MET's top retention system, the Safe-T Advanced, has been welded into the helmet's shell for a reduction of weight and a larger cradle surface area for a more all-encompassing fit. The micro-adjustment dial allows for 2 millimetres of adjustment per click so you get a precise and comfortable fit. The added bonus of a four-step vertical fit gives better cranial protection.

The straps have also been adapted to be lighter than traditional helmet straps. Airlite straps and dividers are 15% lighter than standard straps and their soft comfort sits comfortably under your chin.

Coolmax internal padding strategically placed throughout the inside of the helmet provides superb sweat absorption and wicking and the Full Gel 02 padding provides a hypoallergenic anti-bacterial treatment.

Please note: Helmets that are sold on are certified with a European CE EN1078 standard. Specific countries may have their own certification, which is legally required. Please check your specific country requirements and check with the manufacturer to see if the helmet has received any additional certification.
