Super light and we'll ventilated
by Michael -
This helmet is super light and fits well with a good retention system and d buckle. Bought this for my five year old who doesn't like heavier more traditional full coverage full face helmets. Way better protection than an open helmet for not much more weight. Good ventilation too.
Light, well ventilated and super comfortable.
by Owen Malone
Light, well ventilated and super comfortable. The Met Parachute ticked all the boxes for me when looking for an appropriate helmet to have a crack at Enduro. It has been so good and so wearable it has even made it out on a few weekend trail rides. The Met parachute is also the perfect accessory when mowing the law in your Borat mankini (just make sure you wear appropriate footwear).
Best budget full face helmet on the market
Having previously bought one for myself it was an easy decision to get one for my son. Being a crank fit it has a longer life for a growing 4 year old. Used predominantly for BMX and suits the new rules and regs. Supersedes most other brands due to the level of protection, number of vents and limited weight for young riders.
Best full face for women
by Claire -
I tried 3 helmets and 3rd time lucky was the case with the MET. Don't know if it's because I'm a female but the fit on helmets was really average on my face but this helmet is perfect. 2 sizes for interchangeable cheek padding, I use the small and chuck the large padding in for my 6 year old son, the adjustment around the cranium is ideal! I can wear it and so can the grommet when he's doing jumps. Light too. Love it.

I do hang gliding. I was looking for full face protection minute excess weight. MET was the obvious choice after searching the Web. I flew with it and loved it. Peripheral view outstanding. My head measured and 56cm which put me on the big side for medium. I replaced the thicker chin pads with the thinner ones and Bob's your uncle. Very happy with new helmet.
Fantastically comfortable helmet and great
by Tim -
Fantastically comfortable helmet and great airflow for climbing when you drop out the chin pads. Makes me realise how much my Bell Super doesn't agree with the shape of my head. Would be nice if the gopro mount was as good as the Bell.
