S-Works Prevail II w/ ANGI

When we set out to improve the original S-Works Prevail, we knew that we had our work cut out for us. How could we improve on the industry benchmark for fit, ventilation, and comfort? By listening to our riders—that’s how. Through this, we realized that there were a few aspects of the original Prevail II that needed to be changed, with the biggest request being for a lower-sitting design.

We've teamed up with MIPS researchers to introduce MIPS SL—a new, ultra-light, and supremely comfortable version of MIPS that's available exclusively on Specialized helmets. With MIPS SL, we've essentially integrated MIPS technology within the helmet padding itself. MIPS SL's minimalist "watchband" attachment system provides 10 to 15 millimeters of rotation in every direction and offers the same brain protection benefits as other versions of MIPS, while also ushering in a new level of comfort and weight savings.

We thought to ourselves, "thinking big shouldn't result in bigger helmets," so with the Prevail, we set out to prove that big ideas can come in smaller packages. It all starts with our patented EPS construction that relies on multi-density foam that's paired with a robotically woven, Aramid-reinforced skeleton. This comes with a reduction in the overall size, creating a smaller profile that fits lower down on the head for a better fit and safety.

It also has deep internal channels that are aligned from front-to-rear, so the air intake and exhaust are optimized for unparalleled cooling over the entire head. And in the Win Tunnel, we found these new designs amounted to six seconds saved over 40km when compared to a "standard" road helmet. Another standout feature of the S-Works Prevail II is the Gutter Action System that manages the flow of sweat, keeping it away from your eyes and dripping it off of the pads over your temple.

In the end, the S-Works Prevail IIis the most complete lightweight race helmet we've ever made—perfect for hot, mountainous rides and flat, windy sections alike.

Extremely comfortable

Once I put this helmet on, I found it difficult to wear any other. It's so comfortable, I actually forget I have it on. I use older cheaper ones for real dirty mtb spins, but anything longer than 90 minutes, they all irritate me except this one.

Would Recommend?
Yes!

Cheap retention

Purchased helmet at the beginning of 2019. In October of 2020 the retention knob broke off. Returned it to Bikes Mike's because it's supposed to have a two year warranty. They said no new helmet, but they could order a replacement knob and any other parts needed for me to fix. This is not exceptable. They should of replace the helmet and charge Specialized.

Flimsy retention fastener, no specialized support

Had the prevail 1 less than 2 years. The flimsy retention plastic strap snapped in travel. Specialized states since not a defect, not a current model they would neither repair nor provide replacement parts nor even enable me to buy replacement parts! They pulled all support away as soon as prevail 2 came out. Only offered 15% off retail price of new one and stated it is just their policy. Way too expensive of a helmet for zero long term support.

Best Cycling Helmet Yet

Loving this helmet. It's very comfortable, lightweight, and has the latest safety technology. MIPS helmet technology is a proven system that can mitigate the chances of a concussion. The ANGI system contacts help if you ride solo and crash. Protect your head, it's priceless!

Love Specialized Prevail

I love this helmet, it's my 4th Prevail and I think it's the best helmet on the market, it's comfortable and has saved my head from more serious injuries other than a concussion. For me the Specialized Prevail is the only helmet I want on my head. The only con is that one stickers? are peeling on the back side, kinda disappointed in that since I did pay a lot of money for it.

Very comfortable 'forget it's on' helmet

Very lightweight, breathable, and cool. So light and well ventilated that you easily forget it's on. I got it in hyper green for high visibility on the road. The only downside is that the high-vis color does not last. After just one summer of use, the color on the top has noticeably faded. I highly recommend the helmet, but not in that color.

Below-ear straps lack adjustability

For all of the tech packed into this helmet it's bizarre that the chin strap has no adjustability to change the lengths that meet below the ear. I miss the fit of my older Prevail helmet which I cracked in a crash. My lack of concussion is testimony to the protection offered by these great helmets but am a little worried about the poor fit of this chin strap not securing my new Prevail II as well.

Helmets are cheap and brain are expensive!

I have been wearing Prevails since 2012. I have been in two crashes - one frontal impact and another side impact - and the Prevails saved me. Now on my fourth Prevail, now Prevail II with Angi since I also ride alone and hope I never have to use that function. The size L fits my oblong head well and the air vents allow ample cooling. The straps are comfortable and the foam pads can be replaced.
