Recent winner of a 5/5 review with Bikeradar and an group test win of the nest road helmets. They described ventilation as excellent and the comfort came out top of the class against the competition.
The original Evade was the first product to come out of the Specialized Win tunnel (yes that is what they call their wind tunnel) back in 2014 and although you can see its heritage in this updated helmet it now ticks few more boxes. Firstly and most importantly it is faster, saving you around 50 seconds compared to a standard road helmet and 4-6seconds on its predecessor.
It has also become lighter, only weighing 230g in a medium, so is now the second lightest helmet in the Specialized range with only the Prevail tipping the scales any lower. The updated shape and vent pattens means not only is the helmet a little smaller it’s also better ventilated. Plus with the addition of the magnetic buckle makes the helmet nice and easy to get on and off.
So the perfect helmet whether you are looking to improve you transition time and bike split in a triathlon, spending a week in the alps or doing the midweek chain.
