Specialized created the Echelon helmet to provide a sleek, fast look which provides plentiful ventilation through an ergonomic design coupled with exceptional fit and long-lasting comfort. This helmet is ideal for road enthusiasts having now been further improved with MIPS technology which is designed to redistribute impact energy through a low friction layer which allows the helmet to slide relative to the position of the head, reducing the impact your head receives when it hits the ground. And it doesn't stop there. The Echelon is ready to be fitted with Specialized's ANGI Crash Sensor lets those closest to you know when you're in trouble. Pairing with your smartphone on Andriod or IOS, it then sends through an accurate location in partnership with STRAVA so you can be sure you're safe, wherever you're exploring. Finally, the Echelon features a host of web designed fitting materials that not only ensure great comfort but keep you sweat free.

In a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System (BPS) the shell and the liner are separated by a Low Friction Layer. When a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System is subjected to an angled impact, the low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relative to the head. The MIPS BPS is designed to add protection in helmets against the rotational motion.
