MET wants to glow up your head

A glow-in-the-dark roadie brainbox is here

Helmet manufacturer MET has unveiled a glow-in-the-dark version of its range-topping Sine Thesis road lid. Badged the Sine Thesis Nightlights, the £190 (international pricing TBC) helmet has been strategically injected with luminescent material and sports reflective highlights as well as an integrated USB rear light.

Various sections of the helmet, including its unique exoskeleton as well as its strap dividers and retention system adjuster, will glow for up to two hours in darkness. Yep, just like those little glow-in-the-dark toys you did or didn’t have as a kid, the material absorbs light during daytime and emits a gentle green glow at night.

The Sine Thesis features reflective stickers and logos at the front, the back and the sides of the helmet’s shell as well as its straps. Additionally, the Nightlights version of the Sine Thesis comes complete with MET’s Safe-T Advanced LED rear light. 

Attaching to the retention dial at the back of the helmet, this six-LED USB-charged light is supposedly visible from 500m away and features flashing/constant modes. It's available in white, black or yellow.

Would you go with the glow? Think it’s a dim development? Let us know in our poll below.
