Specialized S-Works Evade II MIPS Helmet

No reviews

Straight up, it’s the fastest road helmet out there. Having their own wind tunnel allows Specialized to develop our products with aero at the forefront of the design, rather than merely testing them there.

Review

This Specialized Evade II MIPS is their best road helmet yet. It’s been shown off in the pro peloton with the likes of Mark Cavendish and Tour of Flanders winner Lotte Kopecky. 

Specialized have their own Wind Tunnel which allows them to test all of their products meticulously. The Specialized Evade II MIPS helmet favors their Energy Optimized Multi-Density EPS which optimises foam types in different areas.

Pros

  • Aerodynamic
  • Well ventilated
  • Patented EPS system 
  • ANGI sensor to pick up any crashes and contact your emergency contact 
  • Micro dial fit system

Cons

  • Retention sits high on the back of the head
  • Brow vents are blocked by the padding 
  • The performance doesn’t come cheap 
  • Not the most ventilated helmet as it favors aero over ventilation

Verdict

A fast and comfortable helmet, which benefits highly from Specialized’s in house wind tunnel. The performance doesn’t come cheap, but it is said to have three layers of safety, Multi-density EPS, ANGI sensor and MIPS balancing out the expense. 

Unfortunately not the best ventilated helmet, so if you plan on spending your days in sunny Spain climbing the mountains, you’d probably want to opt for something different.
