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 minimize drag and improve ventilation. The diffuser helps optimize aero performance by allowing air to release easier and improves ventilation by drawing 10% more air through the helmet at a given speed.
The Occipital Base Adjustment optimizes comfort by personalizing fit to individual head shape and helmet angle can be adjusted for compatibility with glasses. An adjustable Tri-Fix web system gives riders added comfort with updated, thinner 10mm webbing that minimizes strap noise. And the ANGi-ready, ultralight Mindset micro-dial fit system with height adjustability has been updated for improved grip and reaction for easy on-the-go fit.
Our ultralight and supremely comfortable MIPS Node Air technology is integrated directly into the helmet padding, with a sleek low friction layer designed to dissipate rotational forces. With Specialized’s proprietary development work, we added perforations to maximize breathability, performance, comfort, and weight savings.
Cooler Heads Prevail
The S-Works Prevail 3 is the best ventilated helmet we’ve ever made. The internal AirCage reinvents impact force management, enables massive vents, and contributed to a 5-Star Virginia Tech® Helmet Rating™.
The Fastest Gets Cooler
The S-Works Evade 3 was reinvented from the inside out to cool better, making it the fastest choice for more stages. We increased its ventilation by 10% while maintaining its leading aero performance. This innovation breakthrough was achieved through extensive Computational Fluid Dynamics and Win Tunnel testing, resulting in a rear “diffuser” that helps minimize drag and larger vents to increase ventilation.
Design Drives Us
Our commitment to developing the best helmets possible is reflected in our high-performance team composed of engineers, product developers, designers, manufacturing technicians, and quality control specialists. When a rider chooses to wear one of our helmets, they show us the ultimate trust—and we take that responsibility seriously.
Woven aramid “cables” traverse the helmet and are anchored to carbon fiber side panels. Upon impact, the AirCage technology works as a suspension bridge and is designed to distribute localized forces throughout the helmet.
The new design of the S-Works Evade 3 increases ventilation by 10% while maintaining its leading aero performance. The rear “diffuser” helps minimize drag, and the larger front vents increase ventilation.
Virginia Tech® Helmet Rating™
Both the S-Works Prevail 3 and S-Works Evade 3 helmets feature MIPS Air Node technology and a 5-Star Virginia Tech® Helmet Rating™. When a rider chooses to wear one of our helmets, they show us the ultimate trust—and we take that responsibility seriously.
