MET Helmets will have two teams racing in their helmets for the 2017 season. Not only will MET’s relationship with Dimension Data for Qhubeka continue in 2017 with Mark Cavendish as their brand ambassador; but MET have now partnered with Team UAE Abu Dhabi.
Team UAE Abu Dhabi is being managed by the former cycling champion Giuseppe Saronni, where the team line up sees a lot of talented riders like Emirati No 1 and Olympian Yousif Mirza; the world champion in individual pursuit Filippo Ganna; and South African Louis Meintjes.
Team Project Coordinator, Mauro Gianetti notes “The globalization of the sport of cycling has made great strides, and an example of this is the new UAE Cycling Team project. In this global expansion, the excellence of Italian products, the result of a great story of love and passion for cycling, continues to be sought after and appreciated by all. Thanks MET, for giving us the honour of agreeing to be on our side in this new adventure, as a supplier of top quality helmets” of the teams partnership with MET Helmets.
MET have designed special addition helmets to commemorate this partnership with Team UAE Abu Dhabi in their Manta and Rivale models, available to the public in April 2017.
