Sine Thesis Ice Lite
The most ventilated helmet ever.
Why settle for just a helmet?
Don’t bother looking for an equivalent to Sine-Thesis on the market, there isn’t one. For the simple reason that only MET is able to build such a complex shell. Assembling the exoskeleton in the matrix before the shell moulding process requires 14 different operations carried out by experts. It is a daring innovation worthy of a Jules Verne novel
transformed into a very real product by our technical wizardry.

In-Mould Intelligent Fusion construction.
In-mould construction involves fusing together in the same matrix the two parts of the helmet shell (the interior which is generally black or grey polystyrene and the coloured polycarbonate exterior) during the moulding process.
This construction technique provides better shock-absorption results than the Twin-Shell at equivalent volume and material density.
Thanks to the In-mould Intelligent Fusion process, MET goes even further by using different densities of material depending on the characteristics of each model to improve the weight/volume ratio while optimising the shock absorption capacity.
ICE Lite construction.
An exoskeleton of ICE Lite composite material unifies the three distinct elements which make up the helmet’s structure.
Inspired by animal carapaces, the concept when combined with In-mould construction leads to outstanding structural performance.
The specific shape of the deflectors (the visible part of the skeleton) directs maximum air flow towards the interior of the shell helping make Sine Thesis the most ventilated helmet ever designed according to the German magazine Road Bike after a comparative performance test.
Gel 02 anti-allergenic interior pads.
Originating from the medical industry, it is hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, made from thermo-stabilising polyurethane morpho-gel. Gel 02 holds the helmet snugly in place thanks to its natural capacity to adapt its shape to fit the head.
With superior hygiene, a much longer lifespan, its thickness remaining stable over time,...
the GEL O2 pads offer so many advantages that they will permanently change your idea of helmet comfort.
Instead of absorbing the perspiration, the front pad sends it to the sides of the face and help to keep the head cool, a key factor not only for comfort but also for the cyclist’s performance.
Occipital retention system. Its role is to ensure that the helmet is held firmly on the head.
A dial at the back of the helmet for easy one-hand size adjustment. The internal mechanism was designed for precision and reliability.
The Safe-T Smart also includes a vertical adjustment to position precisely where the helmet touches the head.
Thanks to the broader and lighter contact area, the pressure on the head is distributed in a homogenous way for added comfort.
Reflective rear stickers.
Being visible is essential to the safety of a cyclist. At night or in tunnels, the reflective sticker placed at the back of the helmet makes the bike visible to drivers approaching from behind.
Although improving performance is often at a cost to comfort and vice-versa, this is not the case with our exclusive Kevlar™ straps. Ventilated, with breathability, ever lighter and ultra-resistant they have numerous advantages over traditional straps.
Anchoring points which provide dual benefits. In the event of a crash, the tensile stress that the straps place on their anchoring points can be violent. The fact that the Sine Thesis Ice Lite’s anchorage points are embedded in the polystyrene and not attached above the shell means that the straps’ tensile stress is more evenly dissipated.
The technical choice to embed the strap anchoring points in the mass creates extra difficulties from a construction perspective, but it improves the aerodynamics of the helmet by leaving the exterior of the shell free from anything which might perturb air flow.
Strong-fit lateral dividers.
For a helmet to be fully protective it must be adjusted to fit securely. It must also remain secure whilst being used. MET helmets are all fitted with lockable lateral dividers (where the front and back straps meet). Positioning them correctly, in other words just under the ears, then blocking them in the chosen position is child’s play.
