While its name inspires musical visions of perfection and concert hall harmonies, the MET Stradivarius Helmet plays its tune out on the road with a highly protective and ventilated form. Utilizing MET's HES construction, the Stradivarius comprises of two merged shells that serve to dissipate shocks and distribute impact pressure over a larger area than standard helmets for increased protection in the event of a fall.
MET understands that all the protection in the world isn't useful if the helmet isn't comfortable and cooling to wear, so it developed a protocol that measures a helmets performance in terms of ventilation called Air Scale. Simply put, it measures two essential parameters -- the Head Contact Surface (HCS) and Cooling Factor (CF). The HSC indicates, with a percentage, how much of the head is in contact with the helmet. The Stradivarius keeps the HSC at a minimalist 20%, which decreases the potential for heat buildup and gives it a massive Cooling Factor of nine out of ten.
A Safe-T Advanced retention system holds the Stradivarius snugly in place using a micro retention system that features both horizontal and vertical adjustment. This easy-to-adjust system distributes pressure across a broader surface than other retention systems to increase comfort. Inside, MET's Gel 02 padding sits softly against your skin and facilitates additional cooling to keep you comfortable over the miles.

Great fitting helmet, bar none. Never heard of this company but thought I would give it a try and I'm very glad I did. I have tried a lot of helmets and this fits the best for me. I do not have a round head so finding a good helmet is hard.
Highly recommend it
