The new MET Manta MIPS sees the Italian brand's aero road helmet become even safer and more energy-efficient. MET had its design teams slightly reshape the Manta in a wind tunnel, and add a slip plane to its fastening lining. 

The new Manta MIPS has an even more aero structure than its predecessor. Its nine leading-edge vent ports have been reshaped and the aft section has a rear deflector, which helps to channel airflow better, delivering a cooler and comfier ride experience, especially in sweltering conditions.
