Specialized Tactic review

Saw video from Remy Metailler who recommended this helmet after a crash. Was a bit sceptical about it being bit hot but not the case as air flow is spot on. Great bit of kit . It’s so comfortable wear it and forget!

Non-adjustable straps rub ears

Like a few people have mentioned, the straps around the ears are not adjustable. The straps that go behind each ear rubbed my ears and was annoying after just a minute or two of wear. Unfortunately, had to return it.

Excellent protection

It's lightweight, fits well, and has great ventilation. I recently had a serious bicycle crash, breaking my collarbone and sustaining a head injury. The Tactic 4 took most of the impact, undoubtedly saving my life. Its robust design and MIPS technology provided excellent protection.

Good helmet be wary of the visor

Great fitting helmet, and ventilation, although a little disappointed at the visor. Sits a little too high and at sunrise/sunset it doesn't do a lot. I can overlook that as I know I what I was purchasing when I bought a fixed visor helmet. What I can't look past is how flimsyly the visor is attached to the helmet. My visor falls off if you look at it wrong. It has popped out when I've been heading riding down hill, holding it walking, siting in the seat next to me while driving, you name it. I've owned it less than 3 days and have had to reattach it more than 10 times.

Great MIPS helmet, excellent safety ratings

The Tactic is a great helmet and has received excellent safety ratings. It goes down lower in the back than my previous helmet, increasing protection. The look is stylish, and it feels great on the head. There is just one thing to carefully consider before buying: Size I currently have 3 total of these because I had trouble getting the right size. I read a review on here that claimed "if you are usually an M, buy an L here". I cannot understand where this person comes from. I am usually an M and ordered an L - it is way too large. If you are usually an M, buy an M. If your head measures 58 cm, buy an M. That review claiming that the Tactic helmets run small should be removed. It is highly misleading. It runs exactly like it says. In my specific case: Giro size M is equal to Specialized size M. M=M, it is not that hard. L is very large.

Made 3 purchases before finally getting the right one. I usually use a small helmet but the shape of these was too tight so I tried the small with round fit. Fit was better but felt a little tight so I went with the medium regular fit and that worked but just a bit loose but I can live with it.

straps on the helmet are funky

Loved the round fit of the helmet. However, the straps that can't be adjusted is really weird and didn't work well for me. The strap that should be behind my ear was loose and flopped around and was super annoying so I had to unfortunately return the helmet. If the straps had been adjustable, it would have been the perfect helmet for me.

Measurement too broad.

The sizing is much too broad in range. My measurement sits at the largest size for a medium helmet, and the smallest size for a large. Tried the medium and it was too snug on the sides. Tried the large and it had to be clamped down almost forcefully at its smallest point, but the helmet just looked huge and almost cumbersome. Ended up ordering from the US to get the medium 'round' fit and it's pretty much exact. I reckon a larger range with overlapping measurements would be a great option.

So this is very appropriate

So this is very appropriate for me to write this recommendation. The helmet saved my life Oct 27th, 2023. I was riding a little too late that evening and had a spill that unfortunately I can’t remember the details of the accident because of loss of memory! Cracked the visor (must have saved my face) and dented the helmet at the left temporal area. In the ER, I received eight XRays and three CT scans. All negative. Received a sizable hematoma on the left outer thigh, a significant scrape off my left forearm (bled profusely), a bruised rib(s) , minor scrapes on both knees and below the left eye and bottom lip. Additionally suffered sprained right thumb and little finger. The left shoulder had a delayed reaction that was very painful, but did not need therapy. So the loss of memory was a far cry better than loss of life had I not had the helmet on! Subsequently have purchased a replacement exactly the same color, size etc. and got it on sale $69.95 using the Specialized on-line ordering method. Because of the memory loss, I didn’t even remember what precipitated the accident and therefore didn’t know the exact location either. My eye glasses and the detached visor were laying somewhere on the side of the road. Three days later my wife drove the perceived route very slowly and I peeked out from the passenger side until bingo, I spotted them! Dan Euting. Owner of the Specialized Vado 5.0 and a more than adequate helmet.

Great Fitting Helmet

Honestly the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. Had some really helpful staff at my local bike shop show me the features and benefits (MIPS and my new ANGi device make me feel safer on the trail for sure). For a MTB helmet it's not without class - the sleek design and wide variety of colour options left me drooling. It did, however, fail the lick test. Helmet 10/10, safe and good value for money. Taste 2/10, plastic.

Great helmet but confused about non-adjustable ear straps

As the best value helmet with a 5-star Virginia Tech rating and with an ebike rating, I had to get it for my new commuter ebike. The helmet itself fits great and it's really comfortable. I am confused, however, why the ear straps aren't adjustable. I have tiny ears for an adult and the helmet straps just about fit under my ears. When I look at the pictures, the models' ears seem way above the straps! I don't think a larger helmet would help.

Safest helmet for the price

My main reason for purchasing this helmet was the Virginia Tech rating and cost overall. There is no better helmet for the money. I will say I’m a 55-56cm and I usually wear a size medium helmet without issue. I originally purchased a size medium and it did not fit my head even with the adjustment all the way tightened. I purchased a small and it’s a tad snug and with the straps not being able to be adjusted around my ears it’s close to being to small. It’s not the most comfortable half shell I’ve ever had but I think my head is the issue and not the helmet. Definitely try before you buy.

Good Fit, good ventilation, bad visor placement.

I like the fit, and it has tons of airflow. I cannot figure out why they decided to put the visor so high though. It would only ever help with sun or rain if the sun was directly above you or if the rain was coming straight down...and you were not moving. Kind of defeats the purpose. Only thing I can think of is that it helps with the routing of airflow?

Comfy

My first reason for a five star review is the comfort of this helmet! Wow! Out of the four helmets I have bought in the last 3 years, this is by far the most comfortable. No need to buy another until this one breaks, which I hope it won’t!! The adjustment components are easily accessible and you don’t look like Kazoo from The Flinstones when you wear it! The only flaw I have found is that the air vents are a little too large. They have caused enough inconveniences to knock off a star because they could be a little smaller. I have had to stop riding to remove a branch and a bee. The bee I am okay with but the branch should have ridden or skidded over the plastic dome and not had enough room to go inside and reach my scalp. No damage done to make this purchase regrettable by any means! This is a great helmet that should please any rider on any trail!

I ride 100+ miles a week on trails. I had a bad crash (22 mph) in September wearing a Echelon helmet. My head was safe, small concussion, although the helmet cracked. This was a wake up call for me. As a replacement I decided to go for the No 1 rated Helmet from Virginia Tech, which is the Tactic. The crash made me realize how fragile we are. I removed the visor. I wear a sweatband under the helmet. I am not into looks or the best Aero helmet etc. I want to ride with the safest helmet that is out there. The Tactic feels very strong. A bit heavy but so what. It fits my head well, and the straps are good. Ventilation is good also. Only suggestion is I wish Specialized would produce them in bright colors, to aid visibility on the trails. We have some very stupid trail users who do not follow the rules! Every little bit would help. Thank you & have a great day.

Favorite MTB Helmet Yet!

I was planning on getting the Ambush 2, but when I looked at the Tactic, I felt like it offered the performance features I was looking for and decided to save $60. The quality of fit and finish is top rate. The visor is in the perfect spot. The straps work really well for me, and the vents provide a surprising level of cooling. My previous helmet was an Oakley with glasses storage, so I was really happy that feature was incorporated here, and improved upon. The eyewear storage being under the visor keeps the glasses safe and out of the way. The pads are a little budget oriented but sweat isn’t running into my eyes, and that is what matters. The safety rating cinched it for me, making it the best thought out MTB helmet I’ve had.

Super comfortable and decent cooling

Title says it all: this is a really comfortable helmet. I wish it had a Fidlock clasp or something similar like my Fox and IXS shells, but I like the rear adjustment and this is my most comfortable helmet, yet. The visor maybe snaps off a little too easy, but it keeps me from breaking it when I occasionally hit limbs and branches. I also like that two sets of pads were included with the helmet. At $120, it’s a pretty exceptional value for MIPS, great comfort with generous cooling channels and fairly unique stylish look that is subjective, but it appeals to me.
