The new helmet is aimed at the fast growing e-commuter market

MET has created an e-bike-certified helmet aimed at city commuters. The E-Mob (short for electric mobility) helmet is one of the lightest e-bike-specific helmets on the market and tested to NTA 8776 certification levels.

The helmet comes in at 365 grams for a size medium. For reference, the brand's top-flight road racing helmet, the Trenta 3K Carbon, comes in at 225 grams.

The helmet has been released as part of MET’s drive to encourage sustainable city transport. The brand says that “as cities evolve and embrace the importance of slow mobility, we are excited to present a new addition to the urban commuting experience with the E-Mob helmet.”

MET has designed the helmet for the specific demands of city riding. On the rear of the helmet is a red LED strip light with three modes. Not only does this reduce the dependency on bike-mounted lights, it also puts the light in a more visible position for other road users.

We have become used to high-end premium helmets on the performance end of the spectrum coming with a rotational impact system such as MIPS. The MET E-Mob uses this technology, specifically the C2 version, the addition of which aims to reduce the potential for brain injuries such as concussion in the event of a crash.

In a press release the brand said: “In the pursuit of safeguarding our planet and enhancing the lifestyle of urban dwellers, we've meticulously crafted a helmet that redefines safety, comfort, and visibility for the contemporary commuter.”

“We've incorporated the best safety technology and subjected our helmet to the highest levels of testing, ensuring that it stands as one of the lightest e-bike-certified helmet on the market.”

The helmet will be available in in three sizes, covering a range from 52cm through to 61cm, and in a choice of eight different colours. MET is offering the helmet with or without MIPS for £70/€80 and £100/€110 respectively.

With the growth of e-bike sales, the introduction of e-bike-certified helmets is a welcome addition. What do you think of this commuter helmet from MET? Let us know in the comments section below.
