Introducing two brand new iterations of Specialized latest helmets
S-Works Prevail 3
The Best Ventilated Helmet We’ve Ever Made. The S-Works Prevail 3 helmet is perfect for riders who value the comfort and thermoregulation benefits that superior ventilation delivers. It is the ultimate all-around helmet that excels in hot conditions, strenuous climbs, and mountainous stages. With a never-ending quest to push the limits of ventilation, we eliminated air-blocking foam “bridges” from the centre, effectively creating thru-air channels that increase the surface area of ventilation by 24.5% compared to the S-Works Prevail II Vent helmet. The all-new S-Works Prevail 3 has the most ventilation area of any helmet we have ever made. When a helmet is impacted, its job is to dissipate the energy of the impact. The conventional approach to helmet design is that more foam (EPS) means better energy management. We re-wrote the book on cycling helmet design by innovating beyond foam. Woven aramid “cables” traverse the helmet and are anchored to carbon fibre side panels. Upon impact, the AirCage technology works as a suspension bridge and is designed to distribute localised forces throughout the helmet.
S-Works Evade 3
The Most Aero Road Helmet Now Breathes 10% Better. The most aero road helmet in the peloton now breathes better. The S-Works Evade 3 was reinvented from the inside out to cool better, making it the fastest choice for more stages. Through extensive Computational Fluid Dynamics and Win Tunnel testing, we created a rear “diffuser” that helps minimise drag and improve ventilation. The diffuser helps optimise aero performance by allowing air to release easier and improves ventilation by drawing 10% more air through the helmet at a given speed. The S-Works Evade 3 and S-Works Prevail 3 are equipped with updated and improved features such as MIPS Air Node (MIPS’ most ventilation-focused solution), Adjustable Tri-Fix web splitter for a personalised fit, Occipital Base Adjustment, Mindset Fit System, and a 5-Star Virginia Tech® Helmet Rating™.
