life saver

About Me

Comments:

Just bought this two weeks ago. This morning I had a blow out of the front tire at ~40 mph on a 15% downhill approaching a 90 degree turn right as I was getting ready to brake. Ended up landing on my forehead at speed after a skid ended in a flip. Helmet cracked in 8 places but held together and I didn't even get a concussion. Would not have survive with the helmet it replaced. Will definitely be wearing a Prevail when I get back on the bike in a few weeks.

Lightweight, comfortable and good looking

By Icechild

from Santa Rosa, CA

About Me

Comments:

I bought this helmet to replace an aging Bell Sweep helmet. While it is considerably more expensive than the Bell, I can say with honesty that this is probably the lightest helmet I've ever owned. The fit was superb right out of the box and apart from tightening the chin strap about a 1/4 inch there was nothing else to do but wear and ride. The ventilation is exceptional and I can mirror the comments of previous reviewers who say that it can feel like you have you have your own personal air conditioner especially in hot weather (living in Northern California can get really dry and hot in the summer months). Thankfully, I've not had the misfortune to crash while wearing this helmet (and hopefully never will) but the helmet feels solid and secure at all times without restricting head movement so at least for me, it inspires confidence. The Prevail does cost a pretty penny but I would say it's worth it as just about any top of the line helmet is close to the price of this beauty so try it on at your LBS and see how it feels. Highly recommended.

Light Helmet Great Ventilation

By kojo911

from bay area

About Me

Comments:

Wow helmets have come a long way. I remember when they consisted of 4 leather straps or big chunks of styrofoam. This helmet is a little lighter than my last helmet but the ventilation is a big improvement, It's taken away my last "argument" for not wearing a helmet namely they are too hot. I would bet that this lid cools the head better than no helmet at all. Highly recommend this product.

Quality helmet

By Lindy

from Undisclosed

About Me

Comments:

The S-works Prevail helmet is not only great looking, but incredibly comfortable. Even after hours of riding, there is nothing that becomes uncomfortable about the helmet. For the ladies, the adjustable back of the helmet is perfect for using with pony tails.

This is the helmet of choice. The lightest helmet I have ever ridden. It looks great, keeps the head ventilated. Never leave home without it.

  • Good ventilation

  • Super Light
  • Convenient back-of-head adjustment
  • Excellent heat venting
  • Durable
  • Lightweight

    • Road cycling

    Comments:

    The fit of the helmet is excellent. It is superlight, has incredible ventilation, and the chin strap is barely noticeable. This is by far the best helmet I've owned. I recently crashed on wet roads doing 30+ mph and my bike and body got pretty torn up, but my head was not affected at all. The helmet broke apart like it is supposed to and stayed exactly where it is supposed to on my head throughout the wreck. We buy helmets to protect us and this one is absolutely the best both while riding and when hitting the pavement. I bought another one same day.

        The Specialized helmets fits nearly every head shape (everyone I know has tried it and loved it) and is super comfortable. Add that to the fact that the Prevail is sooooooo light it is like wearing a baseball hat - that light and that comfortable! Worth ever penny.

          Purchased a Giro Prolight. Very light but never comfortable. Crashed and cracked the Giro. Chose Specialized Prevail for replacement. Owned a Specialized before & was always happy with the Specialized comfort/fit. The Specialized Prevail is nearly as light as the Prolight but the comfort & airflow are far superior. Highly recommended.
