Helmets have long been pursued by a tacit rule: low weight, ventilation, aerodynamics ? choose two characteristics, and you will have your helmet. As you may have noticed, we are not governed by these rules ? or by any of them, in that respect. We prefer to go around the norm and create products that nobody has ever dreamed of. And you don't have to look beyond the new S-Works Evade helmet to get proof of that. Right from the start, it's the fastest helmet on the road.
Our ANGi fall sensor gives you and your loved ones peace of mind like never before- when combined with our iOS or Android application, the sensor detects a fall and sends a text message to the contacts specified on your phone. You can also synchronise with your application and STRAVA® to provide GPS-based activity tracking.
We have joined MIPS researchers to introduce MIPS SL - an ultra lightweight and supremely comfortable new version of MIPS, available exclusively in Specialised helmets. With MIPS SL, we have essentially integrated MIPS technology into the helmet padding itself. The minimalist "bracelet" attachment system of MIPS SL offers 10 to 15mm rotation in all directions and the same protection of the brain as other versions of MIPS, while ensuring new levels of comfort and weight saving.
Starting with the aerodynamic development, we basically went to live for the Win Tunnel in order to create this Evade. Having our own wind tunnel allows us to develop our products with aerodynamics at the forefront of design, instead of just testing them there. With this, we have carefully analysed all aspects of helmet performance in the Win Tunnel and, with real world testing, we have ensured that we leave nothing to chance in the demand for performance. This represents a helmet that has countless hours of testing and years of development, and ultimately, is the sum total for the fastest road helmet we have ever tested.
We not only subtracted grams from the drag, but we did it without sacrificing safety. In fact, we changed the construction to favour our Energy Optimized Multi-Density EPS, which optimizes foam types in different locations. As far as ventilation is concerned, free airflow through the helmet not only makes it cooler, but also reduces aerodynamic drag. Going hand in hand with this, ventilation and aerodynamics both form optimized together in the Win Tunnel, resulting in the best combination of aerodynamics and ventilation that goes around. Now the exterior vents and interior channels have been carefully considered in order to make sure that the helmet attracts maximum air volume for extreme cooling. And the result? The new Evade is as cool as a head without any helmet, making it the coolest air helmet on the market today.
Thanks to this work, the Evade saves 50 seconds in 40 km compared to a traditional road helmet and about six seconds compared to the previous generation Evade. This means that it is not only as fresh as an unprotected head, but also as fast. For road helmets, there is nothing that can approach this performance.
Last but not least, a quick helmet is useless unless it fits correctly. With this in mind, the new S-Works Evade has all the features you would expect from a top of the line helmet, such as our Mindset HairPort 2 system with micro-fit, soft tapes that don't stretch and a new Gutter Action eyebrow pad for sweat management away from your eyes.
