The Specialized S-Works Evade II Helmet has been built for the discerning cyclist, chasing every marginal gain out on the road. Designed in Specialized's Win Tunnel, the helmet's shape has been optimised for ultimate aerodynamic efficiency, shaving six seconds off it's predecessors time over 40km, and coming in a whole minute faster than the Prevail.
When designing the Evade II, Specialized's goal was to create an aero helmet as breathable as a climber's helmet. Thanks to the 4th Dimension Cooling System, this has certainly been achieved. Featuring large vents, deep internal channels and aligned exhausts ports, the level of ventilation is claimed to be comparable to riding without a helmet.
Despite this impressive breathability, the helmet boasts a tough design, offering the protection required for high-speed riding. Utilising a patented Energy Optimised Multi-Density EPS construction and an Aramid-Reinforced Skeleton the Evade II will effectively manage impact energy, protecting you in the event of an accident.
Whilst performance is clearly at the forefront of the design, Specialized have ensured that comfort is not sacrificed for speed. The Mindset HairPort II micro-dial fit system can be adjusted vertically, providing a precise fit, regardless of your hairstyle, while the 4X DryLite webbing is soft, lightweight and moisture resistant. The Gutter Action brow pad is another key addition, channelling sweat away from the eyes and towards the temples.
Finished with a magnetic closure system, the Evade II is incredibly easy to secure and remove, perfect for fast, seamless transitions.
