The cyborg-looking Met Parachute aims to bridge the gap between downhill and trail helmets.
Essentially, it’s a light trail lid with a chin guard for those that want a bit more protection on the trails and more technical stuff, rather than a lightweight downhiller. The inmolded shell has 23 vents, uses the same Met Safe-T retention system found on their top end helmets and also comes with washable inner pads. It’s a bit weird getting into but sits fine once it’s on your head. The chin guard is removable for those times when you don’t feel it necessary, so you can still use it as a regular trail lid.
