MET Drone Wide Body

    Dominating Resistance in the Velodrome

    In racing, cyclists often compete with a difference of seconds between them. In a time trial, these few seconds can change the result of a Grand Tour.
    Ryder Hesjedal experienced this in 2012 at the Giro, expertly recovering more than thirty seconds of time between him and the leader to win the Maglia Rosa.
    Aerodynamics is a key component our engineers and designers work on when creating helmets to secure performances such as these.
    The MET Drone was born of this necessity, and we’ve taken the time to explain to riders exactly how the Drone can best be taken advantage of to boost their performance.

    WIDE BODY & AERO POSITIONING

    The rider, bike and helmet need to work in unison, functioning as the same system. With higher speed comes greater air resistance. This is where positioning is vital.
    Here, these riders use the Cervélo P5, Enve wheels and aerobar, Rotor Cranks and Shimano DI2 group.
    They also wear a skin suit, shoe covers and of course, the MET Drone helmet. The position to be assumed is not as simple as it may seem.
    With relaxed shoulders, stretch the neck and sink the tail of the helmet between the shoulder blades.
    Making the body parallel to the ground and the head in front of it.
    In this position, the helmet becomes a part of the moving system, guiding air over the rider’s shoulders, creating a perfect system to race against the clock.

    LAPPING THE RING

    Practice makes perfect. At every change of the bike setting, the tester rides several laps before confirming through telemetry,
    the quality of the changes and to prove the sustainability and benefit of the position.
    Each testing session expects dozens of laps at a constant speed.
    The most significant laps are selected to make a comparison amongst the different values.
    Looking for the best setup.
