Launched in 2016, the Drops Cycling team has surpassed expectations in their first year of racing, and have won the hearts of many cycle fans. As they ready themselves for a new season of racing, the Drops team have gone on to inspire a new direction for helmet sponsor, MET.

The Drops Team aim for further road success in 2017

MET have not only launched new colour-ways for their Rivale road helmet, but have created a dedicated women's area of their website too. The alliance between the Drop's team and MET goes beyond a simple sponsorship arrangement, as both share the same ethos, and invoke the true spirit of cycling.

"We support Drops Cycling because their philosophy aligns beautifully with ours – because we think every ride should be joyful, pure and simple. A ride without smiles is a ride wasted." - MET Helmets

Italian road cyclist, Susannah Zorzi, has joined Drops this year and will be taking on the role of team leader. She says: "As a team the goal is to grow together in all the aspects of racing, that means both in terms of physical performance and our strategic ability. We want to make a big step forward from last year. For myself, I am really focused on sharing my knowledge and experience with my team-mates."

MET will be releasing a wider variety of sizes for their road cycling helmets: Rivale and Manta later this year, along with the new Drop's inspired colour-way.
