I own both the Met Manta and Trenta 3k Carbon helmets. At the time, CC did not carry either of them. I am glad to see CC has started to carry both (in what appears to be limited in sizing). I wear a 7 1/2 long oval hat (read fairly large head), and the large in both helmets fit me great. The helmets adjust nicely and are very comfortable on my head as well as being fairly light, especially the Trenta...very light on your head. The Trenta is a work of art. The carbon weave is impressive looking. It fits fairly low on your head and just looks good. As far as performance, the air flow is second to none. Ive stopped wearing it on colder days. Too much air flow, so I'll switch back to the Manta which is a flat-out, fast aero helmet with a bit less ventilation. Both helmets perform well as aero helmets, but the edge definitely goes to the Manta in that department. To get the aero benefit in either helmet, you of course have to be able to be in a lowered position on the bike with the head tilted slightly down. In my opinion, the proper helmet is some of the cheapest wattage savings out there. Especially if you do a lot of solo miles and you're constantly battling wind/air resistance. The right helmet can make a huge difference as your miles pile up. Me...I would purchase both the Manta and the Trenta and switch around depending on the weather and/or my goals for that particular ride. I think you'll be happy with either...good luck!
