Featuring a removable visor, an extended back and temple coverage, an exceptional ventilation and comfort; it ticks every box for a singletrack, gravel or road use. Free you mind of all categories, the MET Veleno Mips is made for any bike and none in particular.

The design reflects the aim of the helmet to adapt to various intended use and different environments. Widely open, deeper coverage, a versatile visor and a fully polycarbonate wrap which makes it more durable avoiding any exposed EPS surfaces to outdoor conditions.

Removable visor

The visor is minimal and removable thanks to invisible anchor clips that keep the design clean and stylish in both modes. Tarmac or trails? Like a gravel bike the Veleno has no borders making its versatility the major stand out point of this helmet.

The Veleno Mips comes with 26 air vents and finely engineered internal air channelling to maximise the airflow which push the hot air out and let a fresh, comfortable feeling in. It also features two dedicated ports for securely docking sunglasses while resting or climbing.

Beyond its venting prowess, the Veleno Mips is also exceptionally comfortable. The 360° head belt of the MET Safe-T Upsilon retention system ensures that there will be no pressure points on the skull and its internal shape welcomes almost all different shaped heads.

Featuring the MIPS-C2® brain protection system, the MET Veleno Mips is able to slide relative to the head in the case of a crash, redirecting damaging rotational motion. MIPS is a brain protection system—engineered to add protection to the standard construction of helmets in case of certain impacts. The MIPS Brain Protection System (BPS) is attached inside the helmet, between the comfort padding and the EPS.

 I removed my visor and I don't even know who I am anymore. Last thing I remember I was hucking 30 foot gap jumps in the woods and now I'm dressed head to toe in lycra sipping americanos in a coffee shop.

 Nice! "Bringing back the 90s" has finally worked it's way into the look of bike helmets. I much prefer as I'm sure others do the style of newer helmets over the ones from a decade ago, but there are others that my dig the retro style.

 Met, contact me! You need a new art direction! I'm sure the helmets are safe but the aesthetics are so dated!

 And nothing about this helmet is attractive. Is it just me or has MET been out to lunch for the last few years with their helmets?

“I heard Tom from accounting wants to be a designer! What are we even waiting for!!!”

 It doesn't have some over-sized f***-off visor, so that's a plus.

 "MET says the Veleno Mips is "made for any bike and none in particular" and is suited to singletrack, gravel or road use" - instructions unclear, took it down a Rampage run and bashed my face in

 To not have Veleno by Fleshgod Apocalypse playing in the ad is disappointing.

 I quite like it. Handy for both gravel and commuting, plus XC to as and when I get another bike (just don't tell the Mrs). Get in

 To Met:
Keep the design simple and clean. You cannot go wrong with that.
The number of people who don't want to stand out and be noticed is higher than the look-at-me's.

 Am I the only one left that wants a hi-viz color in a helmet for road use?

Gotta get the attention of drivers texting with phones in laps somehow!

 I just got a Cateye VIZ300 rear light. The daytime hyper flash mode is incredible. That being said, a high viz helmet is also not a bad idea at all.
