ROTOR Raptor Crankset & MET Parachute - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway

Dec 7, 2018
by Pinkbike Staff  

CONTEST NOW CLOSED. The winner of the ROTOR Raptor Crankset & MET Parachute Helmet is Pinkbike user Loche.

Congratulations Loche

Prize Details:

Let the big hits and berm blasting begin with ROTOR’s Raptor Crankset on your side. These DH-ready cranks check all the boxes when it comes to stiffness and durability, while offering modular flexibility so you can swap them from bike to bike no matter the hub spacing. Raptor pairs its stiff alloy arms with standard, Boost, or downhill axle options, and can be fitted with either round or oval Q Rings for getting the max out of your power. And because style matters, Raptor cranks can be combined with your pick of 6 color-matched rubber boots to that keep your kit looking fresh, all the while providing some protection from the stray crank-gobbling rock in the boulder-field ahead. Pick your choice of chainrings, axle, boots, and crank length and get ready to get shreddy.

To double the freshness of the deal, ROTOR is tossing in MET’s top-tier DH helmet to keep your noggin on lock-down when things get a little haywire in the bike park. The MET Parachute helmet is crafted for total coverage, but without the bulky weight you find in other full-face offerings. It features ample ventilation to keep you cool when steep, exposed pitches call for toasty hike-a-bike sessions, but without skimping on safety. MET’s Parachute ticks all of the boxes with ASTM, CE, AS/NZ, and CPSC certification, and features a fixed chin bar that keeps your money-maker fresh when a dusty berm sends you sideways into the woods.

 Wait. The MET Parachute is a "top-tier DH helmet"? Since when has MET ever tried to suggest it's a DH helmet?

 @DrPete: Anyone would be crazy to wear a Parachute for DH. I own one and love it, but it’s absolutely not a DH lid....

 @shortcuttomoncton: I'm just talking about the rating. My Giro Cipher comes out at the park, but if you're going to wear a full face may as well get one that meets the standard. I've settled on the Bell Super DH as my favorite because of comfort and the removable chinbar, but the Switchblade, Proframe, and Parachute are all good choices with pluses and minuses.

 @DrPete: what you’ve identified is that the helmet rating system makes no sense and is inadequate. The Parachute “meets DH standards” but it’s an enduro helmet, not a DH helmet—and definitely not a “top-tier DH helmet”.
