Should have got the Ambush, not the number two.

Needed a helmet in a hurry after cracking my Ambush. Figured the Ambush 2 would be an upgrade, and was super disappointed to find it was not. Spend the extra money and get the original!

Ambush 2, awesome helmet!!

I recently bought my Ambush helmet, and absolutely love it! The fit is superb, it is so light you almost forget you're wearing it! The adjustable straps are a welcome addition and I love the styling of it, and the red matches my Trail gloves perfectly 👍

Ambush 2 - Excellent helmet, but really dislike the visor

First of all I love specialized products and am brand loyal. The Ambush 2 fits well and I'm sure in an event of a crash would be super protective. However I really don't like the visor. It looks goofy, it large and sits high up on the helmet, not adjustable and provides zero protection against the sun. I thought overtime I might be able to accept the visor issue, but I'm looking for a new MTB helmet as I really don't like the style of this helmet.

Ambush 2

This is the third Ambush 2 helmet I have purchased. They are stylish, comfortable, and protect my noggin. I didn’t actually need this one, but it was such a great deal that I couldn’t resist buying it.

Best Half-shell I've Owned

I've tried a variety of top brand helmets, TLD, POC, Leatt and Bell to name a few. The Specialized Ambush 2 helmet stands out as a top-tier choice for me due to its exceptional fit, unparalleled comfort and a customized feel. Its extended coverage offers comprehensive protection without compromising on weight. The eyewear integration is a standout feature that I've come to expect on all helmets now. Specialized has successfully combined comfort, coverage, and innovation in the Ambush 2, making it a game-changer for those seeking a reliable and comfortable helmet.

Would Recommend?
Yes!

Very narrow, useless visor

I ordered the same size as my road helmet, I sit comfortably around the middle of M size. While the helmet sits alright on the front-back axis, the hard sides push against my head. After tightening it's uncomfortable. It's also pretty hard to put any beanie or other thin hat under it. The visor is outside of my field of view entirely. It's purely a decoration.

Would Recommend?

Coming from a TLD A2

Coming from a TLD A2 Ambush design 2 a bit bulkier. Fit wise a tad bigger for my 56/57 noggin. Don’t seemed to have much difference in weight though. But overall offers more protection coverage. Considering to get tactic 4 as a spare helmet

Would Recommend?
Yes!

Poor design

This is the worst design. The visor is not functional, is not adjustable, does nothing for blocking the sun and the visor makes it impractical to ride in the sun. I am in the middle of a twenty five mile ride and I stopped to write this review. I bought the Ambush II because I had great luck with my Ambush I. If I had not crashed I would not have bought a new helmet. I will be giving this helmet away and buying another more functional helmet. Truly unfortunate, I genuinely have liked my Specialized purchases. Did anyone ride with this helmet before final production started.

Would Recommend?
Yes!
