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 an energy optimized, multi-density foam. We use multiple densities of it to better assist in managing impact energies, and when paired with an Aramid-reinforced skeleton that’s weaved accuracy, the resulting technology becomes nothing short of class-leading. Impressively, we achieved this while reducing the overall size of the helmet to create a smaller profile that fits lower down on the head. Of course, this all contributes to a better fit, but what isn't obvious is that it also makes for an extended level of coverage that further improves safety.
With this out of the way, we moved on to ventilation. The Prevail 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. This design also lends itself to the aerodynamic improvements to the helmet, as this Prevail was designed in our Win Tunnel to save 6 seconds over 40km when compared to a “standard” road helmet. Add it all up, and you get a helmet that’s more aerodynamic, cooler, and better fitting than anything else out there. It’s safety made smarter. specialized.com/prevail
