Product Review: Specialized S-Works Prevail Helmet



Specialized is best known for making some of the most cutting edge designed bikes and equipment on the market. Specialized also makes great accessories that will make your riding that much more enjoyable.

Whether you are racing up the Alpe d’Huez or just riding along the local bike trail, Specialized has created one of the lightest, coolest and most efficient helmets on the market with the S-Works Prevail helmet.

After logging in some miles wearing the S-Works Prevail helmet, it feels like there is nothing on your head, which is a great feeling. Specialized has achieved this by using their patent pending Dual Density EPS, which optimizes impact performance. In addition, the patented Kevlar-reinforced Inner Matrix allows for ultra-light construction.

One of the really cool features of this helmet is the ultralight Mindset micro-dial fit system with height adjustability which enables a perfect and comfortable fit.

The straps use a Tri-Fix web splitter for improved comfort and easier strap adjustments. The straps are a minimalist design, but don’t sacrifice durability, comfort or strength.  Specialized not only focused on weight and comfort, but also on the aerodynamics of the helmet.

The S-Works Prevail is loaded with vents. One of the key features of the S-Works Prevail is the use of the 4th Dimension Cooling System, which allows the air to flow through for increased cooling and less sweat build up. It also pushes the hot air to the rear of the helmet which creates a much cooler helmet.

The S-Works Prevail comes in many different colors to match your team colors or your favorite kit.

When searching for a helmet with all of the bells and whistles, the S-Works Prevail is a high tech helmet for demanding riders who are looking for that extra edge in technology and comfort. The S-Works Prevail is just a great designed helmet!

The S-Works Prevail Team helmet retails for $ 230.00 to $ 240.00 and  can be found at Cynergy Cycles and other Specialized dealers.
