Long after catching wind of the Italian company’s Stateside debut, MET helmets have finally landed at distributor Tom Hall Enterprises and are available for sale with full US safety certifications.  Hit the jump to see a sampling of their helmets, from super light to super commuter…

...and includes Gel02 pads that felt awfully nice on my nearly-bald head.

...which doesn't only reflect light- it shines light!

The one-size MET Terra weighs in at 250g and is an attractive trail option.

What about the Parachute? available/approved for US?

No joke, I want the Parachute so badly. I’ve seen some really terrible damage done to people’s faces and jaws while riding on the road. Be nice to have a bit of protection for the most expensive part of your body.

Was there no Sine Thesis on display?

Finally, have had a sine thesis for 2 years. Been wanting a new one :)

People already get laughed at enough on this side of the Atlantic for wearing Parachutes, you don’t need them over there in the US.

I have a Kaos UL. Normally I’m a Giro man but won this and actually really like it, which surprised me. The gel pads are great.
